Sometimes women do everything for other people and don’t get a chance or the time to do something for themselves. But, more and more women are finding that if they DO take the time to take care of themselves, the value of that investment “shows up” in a positive way in every other aspect of their lives- such is the case with this adorable and beautiful 45 year old woman: 5’2″, 120 lbs, 36D cup, mother of 3 kids and size 2 clothes. She was frustrated with her sagging breasts (ptosis) as well as the “muffin top” that plagued her fit into jeans and dresses.
She works many hours a day preparing food for students and comes home to care for 3 kids. She also works out 3-4 times a week- can you imagine? Really hectic life and has maximized all that exercise and careful eating can do. She felt that it was her turn to do something for herself. She spoke to some friends and one of them told her about Dr. Mahony and the wonderful experience she had when she had a tummy tuck. Our lady was to excited that she came in for a consultation for find out about the Mommy Makeover.
Her interest was in perking up her breasts and getting rid of her muffin top. Our gal spent over an hour with Dr. Mahony and learned everything there is to know about breast enhancement and body surgery options for a Mommy Makeover. She left that day with a wealth of information to review and discuss with her loved ones. She was invited to come back for a compimentary second visit and bring along her husband so that he too could have all of his questions answered.
At the next visit, she felt so well informed that she scheduled a combination tummy tuck and a breast lift (mastopexy). Her husband was as excited as she was and felt perfectly prepared for her recovery from her outpatient procedure. Her outpatient surgery was terrific and her recovery was noneventful. In fact, she was back at her job within 7-10 days.
We last got together at her 1 month post op appointment and she was cleared to return to the gym. She has changed up her diet a bit and lost some additional weight. She is now a size 0 and still wears a D cup bra BUT everything sits up where it ought to be and her shape looks great! Still some healing to do and the scars need some time to fade, but all is well so soon.
