Breast Uplift and Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Surgery
Hello. My name is Adrian Richards. I’m a plastic and cosmetic surgeon and the Surgical Director of Aurora Clinics which is based here in the United Kingdom. Today I’m going to be talking you through an operation I did on this lady. As you can see from the before photos, she’s got considerable breast asymmetry. Both nipples are in a low position, but the right is particularly low.
This is with the preoperative markings. You can see that upper semicircle is where I’m going to lift the nipples up to. I’m going to perform more of an elevation on the right because the nipple’s lower.
The nipples typically are elevated to a level of 21 centimetres from the sternal notch at the base of your neck in a woman of normal height.
Here you can see her tummy. Again, she’s got excess tissue in the front and in the side. Because she’s got excess tissue on the side, I will perform extended abdominoplasty taking the tissue away there.
This is with her asleep. You can see she’s got a lot of skin laxity, and this is the tissue I’m going to remove. I’m going to remove the tissue between those lines there. My incision is going to be on the lower line there.
This is with the tummy button cut around and on a stalk. A normal tummy button is going to be used but just brought out through a new hole as you’ll see in a minute.
This is my lower incision; so I’m cutting through the fatty tissue gently here, and then I elevate the skin flap. So you can see the skin is elevated here from the underlying muscles.
My next stage is to divide the skin in two. I always take the skin in two parts from the breast so I can be as accurate as possible and I weigh each side independently to make sure they’re of very similar weights.
Here you can see this is the skin I’m going to remove in this lady. I’m just demonstrating here the tummy button. This is the tummy button brought through on a stalk, and this is the hole through which I’m going to bring the tummy button. So the tummy button, although it’s the old tummy button, it’s brought through a new hole, and you can see this is the tissue I removed. In this case, I removed approximately one kilogram of tissue from each side.
As I mentioned, this is an extended abdominoplasty because this lady had excess tissue in her flanks. This is with the wound closed, and you can see I’ve gone right round the flanks to give her a nice hip shape.
This is before the operation and this is at one week following the operation with the tapes on, but you can see the nipples are in a higher position.
This is the tummy before the operation, and this is it taken two weeks after, again with the tape on.
