This 26-year old female from the Springfield area, sought consultation for both lack of breast fullness and some unflattering bulges and excess fatty tissue on her abdomen and thighs. Although very busy in her life, juggling a full-time position as a customer representative and a student pursuing higher education in Decatur, Illinois, she still found the time for exercise. However, she had been unable to get rid of a persistent bulge in her hips and stomach. She found herself becoming very discouraged by the thought of having to sacrifice the shape of her body just to keep up with her demanding schedule. She also expressed a desire for larger breasts.

At 5'2" and 138 pounds, she was considered to be within a normal weight. However, the abnormal fat accumulation around her hips created a difficult problem finding clothing to accommodate asymmetric hips (much larger on the left side) and an abnormally positioned high waist due to excess fatty tissue in the hip and stomach areas.

During her consult she stated concerns regarding her health since she had had a kidney issue for some time and wanted to make sure that the anesthesia would not create problems with her health. Having a very hectic life, she wanted to return to work within 7 days after the procedure. This mandated that both procedures of breast augmentation and liposuction that she was considering be done at the same time.

We discussed the idea that she was a good candidate for breast augmentation using saline prostheses beneath the muscle since she had enough tissue to camouflage the added volume. We also discussed tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction through which the abnormal fatty tissue would be removed with less than 1/8th inch incisions. She was reassured as to the safety of properly administered light general anesthesia, and after careful consideration she underwent both procedures, carried out at our office-based, fully accredited surgical facility in the Champaign-Urbana area.

During a 3-hour procedure, breast augmentation using smooth saline prostheses filled to 365cc and liposculpture of the hips, stomach, waist, back and inner thighs (removing a total amount of 3,750ccs) was carried out. After approximately one hour in recovery, she was sent home with a pressure girdle in the liposculpted area and a lightly supportive bra vest.

She found the recovery to be better than she expected and experienced breast pain for 3-4 days. She was able to function without difficulty, remaining active and ambulatory with some discomfort in the lateral buttocks and waist areas. She was released to light exercise after one week, shown how to massage her breasts to keep a wide capsule and encourage breast softness, and went back to her usual busy life within 7 days after surgery.

During her normal follow up at three months, the average measurements for both abdomen and hips showed a loss of 4 inches in diameter. She is delighted to be able to, in her own words, wear any clothes I want to from the shelf at this time because my body proportions are just right. She finds that she doesn’t need to fit her clothes to her body any more, rather her body is able to fit into clothes effortlessly.
