Pregnancy and children can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, these important life events can have drastic, often irreversible changes on the body like sagging breasts, a protruding belly, and stubborn fat deposits.
The Mommy Makeover is a series of different plastic surgery procedures performed with the goal of overall rejuvenation and returning the woman back to her youthful prime.
The most common procedures in a mommy makeover are breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. However, your mommy makeover will be unique and personalized to you, because we understand that all women are unique, and will have different needs and changes thanks to differences in pregnancy and childbirth. Other procedures like the thigh lift or even the facelift can be easily added to the mommy makeover for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
The Mommy Makeover can be completed in a series of separate stages of surgery, or combined to consolidate recovery time.
Candidates for the Mommy Makeover
You don’t even have to be a mother to be an ideal candidate for the Mommy Makeover, any woman can be part of it. That being said, there are a few conditions that make a patient the perfect candidate for the Mommy Makeover:
1. Are you 100% recovered from pregnancy and labor?
2. Are you overall generally healthy?
3. Are you 100% done with growing your family?
4. Do you have 2 weeks for recovery?
If you’ve said yes to all these questions, then you are an ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
Breast augmentation can help correct a number of problems by reshaping the breasts, restoring volume, and establishing symmetry. A breast lift can help reposition and lift breasts that have suffered from drooping thanks to pregnancy and breastfeeding. A breast augmentation and breast lift can also be combined for the ultimate breast rejuvenation procedure.
Pregnancy and aging can often lead to a sagging belly and a “bulge” around the tummy and midsection. A tummy tuck can dramatically flatten the abdomen and slim down the waist by removing excess fat and skin. The tummy tuck can also reverse the separation of muscles in the abdominal wall by tightening them. After a tummy tuck, you should also have the additional benefit of an improved muscle tone, as well as a reduced “hooded” navel thanks to pregnancy and labor.
Hormonal changes due to pregnancy and childbirth can leave us with stubborn pockets of fat around the thighs, hips, abdomen, love handles, knees, back, arms, neck, and chin. Liposuction can help contour all those areas by gently removing the fat and contouring the body so that it’s sleeker and more toned.
