Orange County Total Body Lift
Breast Lift, Arm Lift, and Lower Body Lift in Newport Beach, Orange County
This 40 year-old post-bariatric patient was referred to Dr. Siamak Agha at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center in Orange County for plastic surgery after massive weight loss. Losing over 200 pounds of weight via gastric bypass surgery in 2011, the patient was unhappy with the significant laxity of her tissues and loose skin.
Requested Procedures:The patient was unhappy with the appearance of her breasts, arms, buttock, lower body, and thighs. Her breast size was a D cup and she requested to only have her breasts lifted.
On Physical Examination: On examination by Dr. Agha, the patient was found to have armpit sagging, significant arm tissue excess, breast sagging and deflation, breast asymmetry with the right breast being slightly smaller than the left, upper back skin excess, abdominal tissue excess and laxity, waist excess, lower back rolls, buttock deflation with significant skin wrinkling, mons sagging, thigh laxity in both a horizontal and vertical direction. Her thighs were heavy including a significant amount of fatty tissue.
Surgery: Dr. Agha planned a 2-stage approach for her total body lift. Her first stage included:
- Lower body lift with abdominal muscle tightening and tummy tuck
- Monsplasty. This is a procedure whereby the pubic area is lifted to its usual position. Dr. Agha frequently removes a small amount of fat from this area as needed.
- A buttock lift which removes the excess upper buttock and lower back skin while lifting her buttocks.
- Outer thigh lift reducing the waist excess skin and elevating the outer thighs.
- Buttock augmentation using her lower back fat. Lower back fat pads are developed as flaps and mobilized into pockets that are created over the buttock muscles.
- Spiral thigh lift - Dr. Agha's pioneered thigh lift procedure
Patient recovered well from her first stage and approximately 3 month later Dr. Agha proceeded with her second stage which included:
- J-upper body lift - Drs. Agha's and Hurwitz's pioneered upper body lift procedure for minor back laxity.
- Dermal bra suspension mastopexy - Drs. Agha's and Rubin's pioneered breast lift procedure for weight loss patients.
- L-brachioplasty - Arm lift procedure correcting armpit and upper arm laxity
Her post-operative total body lift photos were taken approximately 5 months after the patient's last procedures.
