Most women are proud to sacrifice the state of their physically fit, healthy-looking bodies for childbirth. Even when committing to the strictest diet and exercise regimen after pregnancy, many women look for surgical options to reverse any undesirable effects.
The “Mommy Makeover” is a popular solution for those women who would like to restore their bodies to their pre-pregnancy shape.
The Mommy Makeover involves multiple procedures for an optimal contouring outcome:
Breast Lift Surgery (“Mastopexy”): Raises and reshapes the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest wall. This is done through the removal of excess skin, tightening of the surrounding tissue, and, in some cases, the insertion of saline or silicone gel breast implants for optimal firming and an increase in volume.
Breast Augmentation (“Augmentation Mammaplasty”): Entails the use of saline or silicone gel implants to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast. This procedure can increase breast size, improve asymmetrical appearance, and restore volume that was lost after weight reduction or breast feeding.
Liposuction (“Lipoplasty” or “Suction Assisted Lipectomy”): Sculpts the body into a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance by removing excess fat deposits. Liposuction can effectively improve your body contours and provide better overall proportion. Areas that can be targeted with this cosmetic surgery procedure include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, upper arms, back, chin, cheeks, and neck.
Tummy Tuck Surgery (“Abdominoplasty”): Removes excess skin and fat from the midsection, in addition to tightening the abdominal muscles, thus dramatically reducing the appearance of a protruding abdomen. Specific techniques can also be used to target the lower and/or upper abdomen, creating a smoother, tighter contour.
Vaginal Rejuvenation (“Vaginoplasty”): Increases the tone and tightness of the vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation ultimately helps return a woman’s vagina to a tighter state. The cosmetic appearance of the labia can also be improved by removing excess skin.
Many women appreciate having the Mommy Makeover as an option, since it allows multiple procedures to be done at one time. This also helps to reduce costs, as there will not be multiple facility and anesthesia fees. However, surgery time needs to be limited to ensure patient safety.
During the initial consultation, you will discuss your Mommy Makeover options. You will also have the opportunity to learn about procedure details, such as the length of time in surgery, potential risks, side effects, and what to expect in the recovery period.
