What is Included in a Toronto Mommy Makeover Surgery?
A mommy makeover is a highly effective procedure that can incorporate two to three treatments for reshaping, lifting, and tightening areas of the body that have been altered following childbearing.
Common surgical procedures performed during a mommy makeover can include:
Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation
There can be drastic changes to the appearance of your breasts following pregnancy, and throughout breastfeeding. They oftentimes lose their firmness and volume. The rapid inflation and deflation of the breasts, as a result of weight gain and milk production, can lead to a loss of firmness and sagging. Breast enhancement surgery can help.
A breast lift is designed to reshape and lift the breast for a more perky and youthful appearance. A breast lift can be effective at reversing the causes of childbirth for a more lifted and perkier look.
At the same time, breast augmentation surgery can be performed to increase the size of the breasts. There are two options for breast augmentation: breast augmentation with implants or breast augmentation with fat transfer.
diastasis rectiIt is a well known occurrence that the tummy region can be greatly altered for most mothers. The skin and abdominal muscles are stretched while carrying a child, and after giving birth may continue to remain stretched and loose.
With a personalized tummy tuck procedure, you can successfully reclaim a tight and lifted looking mid-section. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, eliminates excess fat, tightens loose abdominal skin, and repairs abdominal wall muscle separation (a condition technically known as diastasis recti).
A tummy tuck can also remove stretch marks in the upper portion of the abdominal area, while improving the presence of stretch marks in the lower portion.
You can achieve a trim and lifted tummy with this popular solution.
It's not uncommon for women to experience an accumulation of problem fat that won't respond to diet and exercise following pregnancy. Liposuction is an effective treatment included in the mommy makeover because it can successfully eliminate problem fat from the common areas of the body where a mother experiences weight gain.
As part of your mommy makeover procedure, liposuction can target under the chin, upper arms, mid-section, back, hips, buttocks, thighs and calves. Please note that this procedure is designed for stubborn excess fat, but does not improve loose skin.
Who is a Mommy Makeover Candidate?
If you are a woman who has fully recovered from pregnancy, you may be a candidate for the mommy makeover. If you are a woman who is unsatisfied by the appearance of loose and sagging skin or problem fat, you may also be a proper candidate.
However, the best way to determine if you are a mommy makeover candidate is through a consultation with our board certified plastic surgeon.

Will my Breasts Become Asymmetrical After Breastfeeding?
A mother's ability to nourish her child is certainly a miraculous event in nature; it offers the opportunity to create a bond between mother and baby and the benefits of being able to do so have been well documented. However, it is also a common concern for women to be worried about how breastfeeding will affect their breasts, particularly if they have had previous cosmetic breast surgery done.
The reality is that pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause changes to both breast size and shape. Your breasts may or may not not return to the way they once were after breastfeeding. It is also possible for breasts to become asymmetrical after breastfeeding. There are several reasons for this.
First of all, this can be the simple result of the natural changes that take place as breast tissue swells with the production of milk and then shrinks again after breastfeeding. One breast may return to its normal size while the other might remain larger. One may also have a more flattened appearance.
Asymmetrical breasts can also occur due to a condition called breast engorgement, which occurs when the breasts overfill with milk in a very painful way. Breast engorgement is in fact very common among women. Some women who experience this condition can end up with a breast size that is one full cup smaller (or larger) than their other breast.
Another common problem after breastfeeding is breasts that sag due to the fact that the structures that produce milk return to their original size. However, other factors also influence whether breasts will sag after breastfeeding, including one's body mass index, number of pregnancies, having large breasts prior to breastfeeding, age and whether or not you have a history of smoking.
What Can I do About Breast Changes After Breastfeeding?
Women are increasingly turning to cosmetic surgery to restore the appearance of their breasts; in fact, their breasts generally look much better than they did pre-pregnancy.
Mommy makeover patients have a variety of options to choose from when it comes to cosmetic breast surgery.
To correct asymmetrical breasts, the best mommy makeover treatment for this is generally breast lift surgery. This will reshape the breast tissue and reposition both the nipple and areola, making breasts appear more symmetrical. This would be the case if one breast sags more than the other.
In other cases, if one breast is significantly larger than the other one, a breast reduction would be considered.
If you want the smaller breast to match the larger breast, a breast implant or fat transfer would the the best option.

A breast lift targets sagging breasts. A tummy tuck treats the mid-section by eliminating stubborn fat, tightening loose skin and repairing abdominal muscle separation.
What is the mommy makeover recovery period like?
Usually, mommy makeover patients are asked to take about 1 to 2 weeks off from work for the initial recovery process. There may be physical limitations for a couple of weeks, including avoiding lifting and carrying heavy things. This is particularly true for plastic surgery patients who've had body contouring procedures like a tummy tuck or breast augmentation. For this reason, mothers with younger children should get help for the first part of their recovery. A complete list of post-op instructions will be given to you. Please follow them closely to help with your recovery. Doing so will also help your mommy makeover results to appear sooner.
Can I get non surgical treatments as part of my mommy makeover?
There are a few non surgical procedures that can help women get their pre pregnancy appearance back for their Toronto mommy makeover. For example, SculpSure can help melt away unwanted stubborn fat on your stomach and inner thighs, instead of undergoing liposuction procedures, while a No Surgery Butt Lift can give you a perkier butt. If you have excessive hair growth, you can even consider laser hair removal. However, it's important to note that in some cases, several non surgical alternatives may not achieve the results that you want. Typically, non surgical procedures can only do so much. You may not achieve the significant improvement you'd like, which is why plastic surgeons generally recommend surgical procedures instead.
