Q: "Had breast lift and 300 silicone implants in 2006. Today, I am a 38 DD (too big). I would like to be a small 36 C. I am 5’5 and 160 lbs. Also, I would like a tummy tuck, back fat liposuction, and my neck line improved (tightening/lipsuction). 1. Can I do this surgery in one session? (under 5 hours) 2. From the pictures is it liposuction that would get rid of my back fat and neck lines/fat?"

Dr. Yovino’s Answer: I think it’s reasonable to downsize your breast implant size, reduce your breasts to fit the new implants, and undergo a tummy tuck with liposculpting of your flanks and back. This can be accomplished is less than 6 hours.
Your neck is probably best approached with a lift and your upper back will look better with sculpting but there is some skin excess.
