Removing and Replacing Breast Implants via the Tummy Tuck Incision

By April 19, 2012 No Comments

Did you know that Dr. John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour specialize in breast augmentation through one single incision when being  performed along with a tummy tuck?  The mommy-make-over procedure, otherwise referred to as the “SIMM” procedure, (abbreviated for Single Incision Mommy Make-over),  utilizes the tummy tuck incision as an access point for inserting either saline or silicone gel implants. This exclusive procedure has been receiving a  rapidly increasing demand, and Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Layke are just two of very few plastic surgeons worldwide that have mastered and perfected this technique.

The SIMM surgery is not best suited for those opting to have a mastopexy (breast lift) performed, as incisions on the breast would be necessary, defeating the purpose of the “single incision”. Yet those who already have implants, whether saline or silicone, and are looking to have them replaced (with no need for a breast lift or modifications to the breast capsules), and also have a tummy tuck performed, might be ideal candidates for the  SIMM procedure.  The same concept would apply by utilizing the tummy tuck incision to access the current breast implants, remove them and replace with new implants in the same pocket, while then completing the surgery with a tummy tuck.

The surgery usually takes anywhere from 3-5 hours from start to finish but does vary from person to person. The surgery is typically performed in an ambulatory surgery center on an outpatient basis. The recovery usually takes a few days before the patient is driving again, and a few weeks before heavy lifting or hitting the gym can resume.
