Mommy Makeover is a trendy name for a combination of customized cosmetic procedures performed to rejuvenate the abdomen and breasts after pregnancy. The most common physical changes that occur after pregnancy are sagging and deflated breasts, along with loose skin and bulging on the abdomen. Generally speaking, a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a woman who is finished having children and is in good overall health.
The most common procedures in a Mommy Makeover include the following:
• Breast lift and breast augmentation are two cosmetic procedures for improving the breasts. A breast lift includes repositioning the nipple and lifting the breast to a higher position. However, this may not be enough for some women who need breast augmentation. This procedure includes cosmetic surgery to place breast implants that will increase the symmetry and fullness of the breasts. They may be the right solution for some post-pregnancy women who need to restore volume in their breasts.
• A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that makes the abdomen more firm and thin. Our expert surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen in order to tighten the skin and muscle of the abdominal wall. Many women do rigorous exercise and dieting after pregnancy to get back their pre-pregnancy figure. However, the abdomen is one place that is difficult to change through exercise. If dieting and exercising for weeks or months has not flattened your abdomen according to your expectations, a tummy tuck may be your best option.
• Liposuction is a procedure for removing fat from the body through suction. Technology has improved liposuction in the last few years, making it safer and easier to perform while still providing stellar results. Liposuction can be performed on many different parts of the body, and our plastic surgeon can give you more details on the procedure during your consultation.
