Having children can bring joy and fulfillment for many parents, but after childbearing most women feel embarrassed about their post-baby body. Unfortunately, the effects of pregnancy are usually permanent. By undergoing a customized Mommy Makeover, your pre-baby body contour can be restored and enhanced to improve your confidence. If you are unsatisfied and can identify with one or more of the following, then a Mommy Makeover may be an excellent procedure for you:
- Sagging or deflated-looking breasts
- Excess localized fat
- Stretched, loose skin and muscles or stretch marks
- Breast asymmetry
- Enlarged, stretched areolas
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Every Mommy Makeover procedure is adapted to fit each patient’s needs for an overall improved appearance. Whether you’d like to add volume to your bust, remove stomach fat, tighten and tone your muscles, lift your breasts, or any combination of these outcomes, a Mommy Makeover can be performed using various techniques to achieve your goals. Based on your individual preferences, your procedure may include any of the following:
- Breast augmentation to enhance breast size.
- Breast lift to reposition the breasts on the body for improved placement.
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove fat, skin, and stretch marks from the abdominal area for a tighter, more defined stomach.
- 4D VASER® liposuction, sometimes referred to as liposculpture, is designed to reduce excess fat in specific areas, such as the arms, hips, lower back, or thighs for a sculpted appearance.
Why Combine Multiple Procedures?
By combining multiple procedures into one surgery, the cost and recovery time can be reduced, and various areas of concern can be addressed at once. Performing fewer procedures on the body is typically the preferred method of achieving each patient’s desired results so that anesthesia is not required more than once to obtain a full body rejuvenation.
When Is the Appropriate Time for a Mommy Makeover?
Most women wait until they are finished having children to undergo a Mommy Makeover. This is to guarantee their body is finished going through changes so the results will be longer lasting. Heavy lifting is restricted for the first week of recovery, so most women wait until their children are older to undergo Mommy Makeover surgery. Other women choose to arrange childcare for the first week following their surgery, so it is a personal choice as to when you feel ready for this procedure. You can discuss any concerns or questions during your consultation to ensure you select the appropriate time to undergo a Mommy Makeover.
