Mummy Makeover Case Study 19
This lady has finished her family and wished to rejuvenate her body and breasts at the same time. She has undergone an abdominoplasty. Extensive liposuction has been performed to the tissue that has been removed and this has then been extracted and filtered and reinjected back into her breasts at the same time as a mastopexy. The result is seen at 6 weeks and the scars will continue to improve. With a dedicated team this operation can take less than 3 hours and so pt safety is not compromised by performing these cases in combination. Patients need to be aware that elongating surgery past 3-4 hours compromises their safety and patients need to be taken through the pros and cons of combination surgery in order to be empowered to proceed. With improved techniques no drains are required and patients can be mobilized immediately after surgery. This prevents additional risks such as DVT / PE which have been described with higher frequencies in multiple surgeries.
