A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that aims to restore the appearance of your figure to its pre-pregnancy condition. The details of each mommy makeover vary from patient to patient, since each procedure is customized based on the woman’s wants and needs. With that being said, the procedure usually addresses excess fat in trouble areas, loose abdominal skin and muscles, as well as the breasts.
Some of the most common procedures performed during a mommy makeover include:
• Tummy tuck/abdominoplasty
• Breast augmentation
• Breast lift
If you have lost a lot of volume in your breasts, implants may be the best option because they increase size. A breast lift raises the breasts and repositions the nipple, but in order for it to look good, there needs to be some tissue still in the breast. Our surgeon can help you determine which breast procedure is best for you.
Liposuction will remove fat, but it will not treat stretch marks or loose skin. As such, it is commonly used in conjunction with an abdominoplasty procedure for optimal results. However, it depends on the unique situation.
Since a mommy makeover typically involves multiple procedures, it is important to understand the care needed during the recovery process. During a consultation at our office, our team will discuss the timeframe for seeing results, as well as provide you with detailed instructions regarding healing.
