Breast Lift Before and After Gallery
As women age, the pull of gravity combined with a loss of elasticity in the skin can result in breasts that are sagging and lacking in breast tissue. Similar effects can be seen if a woman has had a recent fluctuation in weight, either due to pregnancy or other factors, or have just finished breastfeeding. A breast lift is a procedure to correct sagging breasts, restoring your breasts to a natural and more youthful position while also making the breasts appear more full and firm.
A breast lift is a procedure that can help a wide variety of women, ranging from young moms to much older women. Therefore, it is important to take a look at Dr. Lapuerta’s breast lift before and after gallery and find someone in your age range to get a good idea of what your results may look like.
Breast Reduction Before and After Gallery
For women with oversized breasts, the constant weight and pressure of their breasts on their body can lead to a number of different issues and problems down the road. Over time, oversized breasts can contribute to the development of neck and back pain, skeletal deformities, and severe headaches, not to mention the fact that larger breasts tend to sag more with age.
For women with oversized breasts, breast reduction surgery is a great way to look and feel significantly better. The surgery removes excess skin and tissue, resulting in smaller, lighter, and perkier breasts. For anyone curious to see how the results of the procedure look, take a look at the breast reduction before and after gallery.

Tummy Tuck Before and After Gallery
A tummy tuck is an excellent procedure to eliminate excess fat or tissue around the stomach and midsection area. The midsection is where bulges of fat tend to permanently reside, serving as a gentle reminder of past pregnancies or weight gain. If you exercise, eat well, and the fat around your midsection still persists, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck not only removes excess skin, fat, and tissue from the midsection, it also tightens the muscles in the abdominal wall, resulting in a much more fit and toned appearance. See the amazing results you can get by taking a look at Dr. Lapuerta’s tummy tuck before and after gallery, featuring a variety of different patient’s before and after photos. Take note that a tummy tuck surgery will result in a scar, but as you can see in the tummy tuck before and after photos, the scar will be hidden by clothing, including bathing suits.

Most people have a “problem area,” or an area of their body in which fat tends to accumulate. It can be the thighs, lower back, or belly, but regardless of the location, liposuction can offer a simple solution. Liposuction removes unwanted fat, reshaping the target area to reveal a new and more beautiful you.
Liposuction can be used on a variety of different locations throughout the body, therefore it is helpful to look through our liposuction before and after photo gallery until you find an individual with the same “problem area” that you have. That way, you can examine liposuction before and after photos and envision how you will look following the procedure.
Brazilian Butt Lift Before and After Gallery
Some women are born with small buttocks or narrow hips and some women as they age may lose a little bit of volume in the buttocks, resulting in a change in the shape or size of their butt. A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a great way to correct a lack of volume and create a more feminine shape.
The surgical procedure uses liposuction to extract fat from the area of the body that features more fat than you would like, such as the thighs or love handles. Then, the naturally occurring fat is transferred to the buttocks, resulting in a firmer, tighter, and more voluptuous backside. If you are curious about what the results of the procedure look like, take a look at the Brazilian Butt Lift before and after gallery. You’ll see real patients’ BBL before and after photos, which will give you a glimpse as to how your buttocks can be shaped for you to feel your best.

These photo galleries present you with the ability to see for yourself the expected results from a variety of different plastic surgeries and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments.
When viewing plastic surgeons’ before and after galleries, it is important to remember a few caveats. First, be sure that the photos you are viewing are actually photos of the surgeons’ own patients and their work. Sometimes, less experienced plastic surgeons will not have photos for viewing or will redirect you to a link with stock photos or examples from other surgeons. You may be able to appreciate what a procedure will provide but you have no way to determine the skill or experience of that particular surgeon. Second, make sure they have a lot of photos for you to view. If they are experienced, they should have the photos to confirm that experience. Third, out of respect for patients’ desire to remain private, many times before and after photos of facial plastic surgery, like facelifts, eyelid surgery, neck lifts and rhinoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation surgery, may be limited on line. However, you will be able to view additional before and after photo examples during a private, in-office consultation.
