Surgeon: Dr. Robert Rey
Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck Surgery
Echo is a 36-year-old go-go dancer and mother of six seeking fuller breasts and a tighter tummy. She receives compliments on her figure, but hates that people says she looks good for a mother of six. She just wants to look good, period.
To achieve the body that she desires, Echo has chosen Dr. Rey to perform her surgical procedures. During an examination, it is revealed that the patient's breasts are in good condition for a mother of six and that a crescent lift with breast implants will provide a great result. However, her stomach is too damaged for liposuction. Dr. Rey explains that because her abdominal muscles have been stretched, she would benefit more from tummy tuck surgery than liposuction.
On the day of surgery, Echo reveals that she will go ahead with the tummy tuck, as opposed to liposuction. Although the recovery may be more extensive, the results will be worth it. Stage 1: Dr. Rey begins with the right breast. He creates a pocket for the implant, dissecting through the breast tissues. Stage 2: The right implant, measuring 425 ccs, is inserted. Stage 3: Dr. Rey moves from the breasts to the stomach, cauterizing then elevating the abdominal skin. Stage 4: The excess skin is removed and the remaining tissues are sutured together. Dr. Rey uses a stitching method that is similar to the bunching of a curtain. It looks strange, but heals better. Stage 5: The surgeon resumes the breast augmentation and lift, this time focusing on the left breast. The left breast implants is inserted, then after making sure that both breasts look even, he sutures both breasts closed.
Total Surgery Time: 3 Hours
The next day, Echo is back in Dr. Rey's office to have her bandages removed. There is only slight bruising on the breasts, and the stomach is flat. The patient is happy, expressing her reaction as, "so good so far."
The Dancing Queen

Surgeon: Dr. Jason B. Diamond
A former boxer, 26-year-old Jazmin endured a broken nose that causes breathing difficulties. Now a singer performing on stage, Jazmin has trouble singing and dancing quickly running out of breath. She is looking forward to having her deviated septum corrected by Dr. Diamond.
During her consultation with Dr. Diamond, Jazmin explains the difficulties her nose causes her. She also explains that she would like an improved appearance as well. Dr. Diamond shows Jazmin digital imaging of the results that are possible with surgery. She's excited for her procedure and is looking forward to the outcome.
Due to the various complications with her nose, Dr. Diamond has decided to perform a septoplasty, rhinoplasty, and turbinate reduction on Jazmin. Stage 1: The tissue is elevated off of the septum to expose the nose. Stage 2: Dr. Diamond files down the bump on the nose. This is done a little at a time so that no errors are made. Stage 3: A small sliver on top of the septum is removed. Stage 4: The crooked pieces of Jazmin's septum are removed. There are quite a few pieces that were obstructing her breathing. Stage 5: Dr. Diamond uses a hammer-like tool to fracture the nose. Then he straightens the cartilage by applying slight pressure with his hands.
Total Surgery Time: 3 Hours 30 Minutes
Jazmin returns to Dr. Diamond's office nine days after surgery. When the bandages are removed from the patient's nose, she is pleased. Although there is some swelling and the tip of her nose has not "dropped" yet, Jazmin says that the results are better than she had imagined.

After examining Marques, Dr. Matlock affirms that he is an ideal candidate for Vaser. Because the patient already has defined abdominal muscles, this procedure will provide the athletic look that the he desires and is unable to achieve on his own.
