Being a Mom is physically and emotionally one of the most challenging experiences a woman can go through. A Mommy Makeover is a collection of procedures that corrects the changes your body underwent with pregnancy. The goal is to reclaim your old self and gain confidence in your body image again.
What Procedures are Involved in a Mommy Makeover?
The procedures are specifically designed for your specific problem areas. It is common to lose breast volume and shape after pregnancy/breast-feeding. This often requires a breast lift and restoration of volume. This is commonly achieved through breast augmentation with implants. As well, there is often excess skin and laxity of the abdominal wall that is associated with pregnancy. This is related to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Although the laxity and fullness of the abdominal wall does not change significantly despite exercise, this can often be corrected with tummy tuck surgery. Occasionally fat deposits are exaggerated such as on the back and flanks. We often address this to improve the shape and contour of your torso. Occasionally there is significant excess of skin and subcutaneous fat in the inner thighs. In order to correct this we perform either liposuction and/or a thigh lift.
Are the Procedures Performed Together or Separately?
Really depends on what her goals are. The more procedures we perform in a single setting, the less the operation costs but the greater the surgical risks. It is important to balance the benefit of the operation with the risks of that operation. We would design a treatment program together that is right for you.
Are People Generally Happy with a Mommy Makeover?
Yes! Moms are some of my most thankful patients. It is amazing opportunity to not only restore what was lost but to give an opportunity to achieve long-standing aesthetic goals.
