Mommy Makeover in Loudoun, Virginia + Breast Reduction + Breast Lift

Procedure Details

Mommy Makeover of a 45 year old before and after a full abdominoplasty, breast reduction, and breast lift The abdominoplasty was a full abdominoplasty with all the tissue removed from the belly button to the pubic bone. Scars are still relatively fresh and will take full year to fade completely. The procedure included some liposuction of the flanks and outer thighs as well as tightening of the rectus muscle. Tightening of the rectus muscle not only strengthens the stomach, but brings in the waist like a corset. The breast reduction was covered by her health insurance. Approximately 500 grams of breast tissue was removed from each side using an anchor-style incision and inferior pedicle. A breast reduction takes about 3 hours. The abdominoplasty also takes about 3 hours. The procedure that is performed as an outpatient. I use the Loudoun Ambulatory Surgery Center located in Leesburg, Virginia; and owned by the INOVA Hospital system.
