A mommy makeover is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy condition. Many women find that pregnancy has left them with a lot of fat deposits and sagging skin. While a mommy makeover is tailored to suit the patient’s wants and needs, it typically includes the following procedures:
• Breast surgery
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover?
During a mommy makeover, our skilled surgeon can perform multiple procedures during a single operation. For example, he may remove excess skin and fat from the midsection, tighten the underlying abdominal muscles, and restore the breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape. He may also perform liposuction to remove any fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise efforts.
The most commonly performed breast surgeries in a mommy makeover are a breast lift and breast augmentation. A breast lift is done to give sagging breasts a perkier and more youthful look. Our surgeon can reshape the breasts and remove any excess skin. Breast lifts are ideal for women who are happy with the size of their breasts and simply want them to sit higher on their body.
Other women find that having babies and then breastfeeding causes them to lose breast tissue. They will likely want a breast augmentation procedure to restore their breasts to their original size.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The ideal candidate will be a woman in good overall health with realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery, and the results. Ideally, the candidate needs to have finished childbearing, for another pregnancy will undo most of the effects of the procedure.
