Mommy Makeover Wellington

Welcoming a child into the world can be a beautiful and life-changing experience. However, the physical toil of pregnancy and childbirth can leave women feeling less than confident in their appearance. Many women live with skin laxity, excess skin, sagging breasts, and other changes that persist through diet and exercise.

In such cases, a mommy makeover in Wellington, Boyton Beach, Palm Beach, or Delray Beach can be a great option to restore pre-pregnancy breasts and physique.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a catch-all phrase that refers to a combination of plastic surgery procedures that includes breast augmentation, breast lift, abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck”, and liposuction. A mommy makeover is a major surgery designed to provide life-altering results that look and feel natural, with no huge scars.

We don’t offer old-fashioned mommy makeovers. Instead, we customize each procedure to the patient’s unique needs and goals while using the latest laser liposuction techniques and other cosmetic advancements with substantially lessened risks.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can help restore breast volume and breast size lost during pregnancy or nursing. Your surgeon will help you decide on what size breast implants will work best for your treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

There are a number of techniques used during breast augmentation surgery to minimize scarring and achieve natural-looking breasts. You and your surgeon will decide on what technique is best for your individual case during your complimentary consultation.

Breast Lift

A breast lift helps raise and reshape sagging breasts caused by the effects of pregnancy, breast-feeding, and gravity. A breast lift is often performed alongside a breast augmentation or fat transfer, but it’s up to you to decide if you want both or either as part of your mommy makeover.

A breast lift removes loose breast skin for a firmer and more youthful appearance. This cosmetic surgery does not add volume, but elevating the breasts may provide results that look perkier and fuller without breast implants or huge scars.

Abdominoplasty

This procedure is better known by its more common nickname, “tummy tuck.” During an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery, the abdominal muscles are tightened to help produce a more firmly contoured stomach and well-defined waistline. Your surgeon will also remove excess abdominal skin.

Tummy tuck surgery process

The incision is made just above the pubic bone, and for best results, a second incision around the navel may be required. With the loose skin gone, you’ll come away from your tummy tuck with stunning results. A tummy tuck can also help treat a condition called “diastasis recti,” which are the loose abdominal muscles many women live with after pregnancy.

Liposuction

Liposuction is designed to remove stubborn fat and help contour the abdomen, hips, thighs, or other areas where diet and exercise alone haven’t been successful. At Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery, we use the latest laser liposuction techniques to provide life-altering results that banish excess fat for good. We also offer smart liposuction fat transfer to complement your major cosmetic surgery.

What is laser liposuction?

Compared to old-fashioned liposuction, laser liposuction is a much safer procedure. Liposuction has the best outcomes in patients who are at normal weight with some extra fat and overall firm, elastic skin. Liposuction is also not a viable option for cellulite reduction. Instead, you may consider body procedures like Thermitight.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover surgical procedure if you meet the following criteria:

  • You’re in good physical and mental health
  • You’re looking to improve the appearance of your body
  • You’re comfortable with undergoing surgery
  • You have no major medical conditions
  • You’re at or close to your ideal body weight
  • You have realistic expectations for surgery
  • You don’t plan to have more children

What to Expect

After your free consultation, you and your surgeon will proceed with whichever mommy makeover procedures you’ve chosen. While every surgery comes with risks, a mommy makeover is a safer procedure than you might think. We’ve outlined what you can expect both on the day of surgery and during the recovery process.

Day of Surgery

Mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia. Depending on what procedures you’re undergoing, your surgeries may take several hours. You may be swollen or bruised afterward, but don’t worry; your stunning mommy makeover results will begin to show themselves during the recovery process. Much care is taken during the surgical process to ensure you don’t end up with scars or unsightly results.

Recovery Process

A mommy makeover is a major surgery that requires recovery. The best way to ensure your stunning mommy makeover results is to follow your doctor’s postoperative instructions. You will have frequent visits to your surgeon’s office for follow-up appointments to make sure your healing process goes smoothly.

At home recovery

In the days after surgery, you may have mild to moderate pain that you can treat using the pain medicine your doctor prescribes. You will need help with home activities and won’t be able to drive for the first 1–2 weeks. Limit heavy lifting or strenuous activity (including chasing after children) for at least 6 weeks.

Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover Options

If you’re not interested in major surgery, there are still ways to enhance your post-baby body and give yourself a little TLC. A non-surgical mommy makeover can complement or enhance your post-baby body. These outpatient procedures have substantially lessened risks compared to major surgery since you will not have to undergo general anesthesia.

Laser Skin Tightening and Laser Body Sculpting

A must for smooth and flawless legs and thighs, cellulite reduction is a great addition to any non-surgical mommy makeover. Thermatight is an advanced treatment that can tighten sagging skin with a powerful laser. You may want to consider thermatight or laser body sculpting if you’re looking to smooth your skin and restore elasticity.

Coolsculpting

If you’re dealing with excess skin or fat, Coolsculpting is an alternative to liposuction. This treatment freezes fat and causes the body to naturally process and absorb the offending fat cells. It may sound like just a catch 22, but Coolsculpting produces a gradual and natural result that can improve your body aesthetic without a major surgery mommy makeover.
