Patient Case Study: Upper Blepharoplasty

Posted by on Mar 2, 2023 in Blog | 0 comments

As time goes on, gravity starts to take an effect on our faces whether we like it or not! The skin over the eyes tends to become heavy and bothersome for women in their 40’s. This lovely 46-year-old, mother of 2, started to notice that her eyes have become tired. Despite using the best eye creams, getting 8 full hours of sleep, or drinking a large cup of coffee, her eyes would not open up!

Finally, she decided it was time to look for other options to brighten up her look. She had a great relationship with Dr. Mahony, who had performed other procedures for her, and did not hesitate to book a consultation to discuss blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery. The two had a great chat, got caught up on life and of course, reviewed all the benefits of blepharoplasty surgery. Dr. Mahony, as always, wanted to know her goals and expectations. It looked like this would be a home-run for her!

These photos were taken only 4 weeks after surgery! The skin of the eyelids heals astonishingly fast, and the incision is hidden in the crease of the eyelid. In the end, she achieved the awake and youthful look that signifies exactly the way she feels!

Procedure: Upper/Lower Blepharoplasty, Facelift, Necklift

This 63-year-old, mother of three, started noticing changes in her face that were not in sync with the vital and active life she leads.

She decided that the time to make a change was now and started researching options!

After seeing Dr. Mahony’s great reviews, she decided to make a consultation for facial rejuvenation! She met with Dr. Mahony for a consultation and they immediately connected! Dr. Mahony felt her expectations were in order and could be met with eyelid surgery, facelift and necklift. She was impressed with Dr. Mahony for several reasons, but most important to her was that Dr. Mahony truly cares about her patients and is a very passionate, skilled surgeon.

She was surprised how easy the recovery was from the surgery, and these photos were taken only one month out from surgery! She was so happy with her results and felt comfortable in her skin! Not only does she look more youthful, but she looks well rested with her bright and open eyes!

Patient Case Study: Mommy Makeover

Posted by on Mar 2, 2023 in Blog | 0 comments

Mommy Makeover
34 year old woman 100lbs 5’0”
Breast Augmentation: Ideal, 220cc, Submuscular, Inframammary incision
Tummy Tuck: Vertical Scar

This 34-year-old mother of three decided it was finally time to treat her body to a Mommy Makeover. She decided she was done having children, so it was time to get her pre-baby body back. After having kids, she felt like her breasts were not as perky as before. She states her breasts have lost a lot of volume and the skin has become very loose. This change in breast tissue is very common after having children. Also, she noticed that her stomach was not as flat as it once was. After having children, the muscles of the abdomen can separate, making it hard to get a nice flat tummy!

Wanting to achieve a flat stomach and perky breasts, she requested a consultation with Dr. Mahony. She was attracted to Dr. Mahony’s education and credentials and was also impressed with the before and after photos of the other Mommy Makeovers.

After the consultation, both Dr. Mahony and the patient decided the best choice for this patient would be tummy tuck surgery to help improve her abdomen, and breast augmentation surgery to add volume to her breasts! This patient chose to go with the IDEAL implant because she liked the safety of it being saline, and the fact that it feels natural like gel implants. And, no risk of silent ruptures!

This patient received the 220cc IDEAL implant, in the sub-muscular position. Her incision was placed underneath the breast fold, which works out great because you cannot even see it! In this specific case, this patient chose a vertical incision tummy tuck. This technique is designed for ladies who don’t have a lot of loose skin but do have very loose tummy muscles. It allows for the maximal muscle tightening yet it does not remove as much skin as a traditional Tummy Tuck. For this reason, there is a small vertical scar just at the junction of the horizontal incision.

These photos were taken only 2.5 months after surgery, and the patient is better than ever! She has gone from a 32B to a 34C, and she has dropped a pant size! She feels confident now that she has a small tummy, and perky breasts like she had before children!

Breast Implants Patient 41yo, G6P4, 5’4”, 122lb
Ideal 300-340cc, Mastopexy of L breast

When this 41-year-old, 5’4’’, 122lb, mother of four came in to see Dr. Mahony, she was unhappy with her breast size and her significant breast asymmetry. Prior to becoming pregnant, she was a full & perky 32B cup. During her pregnancy and while breast feeding, her breast volume increased to a 38EE. Unfortunately, after breast feeding, her breasts did not return to that perky 32B. And, she felt she lost that “sexy” that had been a part of what defined her as a woman. That’s when she made the decision to have breast augmentation surgery.

Her first visit was a success! She felt an immediate connection with Dr. Mahony and knew she was in the right hands. She comfortably sat with Dr. Mahony and went over all of her questions and concerns, tried on a variety of implant sizers and never felt rushed. Dr. Mahony explained that having asymmetric breasts is very common, but she can use several techniques to give her more symmetry! After learning and understanding the procedure, this mom felt one step closer to making her dream a reality.
Her surgery went smoothly, using 300cc ideal implants, in the sub-muscular position, through incisions below the breasts. Her left breast required a lift due to the excessive sagging of the skin. She only needed a few days off from work and is thrilled with her results! Dr. Mahony brought her “sexy” back, as well as her confidence! she loves her 32D cup breasts!

Extended Abdominoplasty Patient: 53yo, Fmeal

5’7” 157lbs

Size 22- Size 8

There’s nothing like hitting the 50s to make us sit up and take notice of our health and wellness! Just ask our lady who ran into that wall at 53. Somehow, with years passing and the demands of life, her weight just crept up. She decided it was time to make a change, and ended up losing 100lbs in one year. She went from wearing a size 22 pant to a size 8! After all this hard work, the patient was left with an abdomen that she felt insecure about. The skin laxity that was left over was something she wanted to take care of.

She went online to look for Plastic Surgery reviews and continually found herself on Dr. Mahony’s website. She was looking for a woman surgeon, experience/great credentials and a warm engaging personality. Dr. Mahony seemed the perfect fit! One phone call later and she had her consultation lined up to learn whether she was a candidate for an abdominoplasty.

To achieve this patient’s goal of rejuvenating her mid-section, Dr. Mahony recommended an extended Tummy Tuck. Dr. Mahony made her feel at ease by taking her time explaining the procedure in detail. By the time Dr. Mahony was finished reviewing the procedure, risks, complications, events the day of surgery- most of her questions were already answered!

This patient’s results following surgery are fantastic! She not only got her flat tummy back, but the extra loose skin is gone forever! The surgery contoured her waistline and she now easily fits into a full-dress size smaller.
