WHAT CAN IT DO? Creates a contoured silhouette and enhances breasts thought combination of procedures
Mommy makeover refers to a combination of body procedures that a woman may elect to undergo all at once in order to minimize on cost and recovery time. This combination of procedures usually includes abdominal contouring to tone the tummy and waistline, and some form of breast enhancement to rejuvenate the breasts. Many patients choose to combine abdominoplasty, also known as “tummy tuck,” along with breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction, or any combination of these. You may also choose to have liposuction performed during the same treatment session. A variety of other procedures may also be added, including Labial and Vaginal surgical and nonsurgical procedures that more and more women now want to include with a mommy makeover, such as the ThermiVa, a painless, nonsurgical treatment that provides vaginal rejuvenation with no downtime.
This combination of procedures is referred to as mommy makeover because the majority of patients who undergo mommy makeover surgeries are women seeking to restore a more youthful and firm body contour after they finish having children. Once pregnancy and breastfeeding have taken their toll on the body, women choose to undergo these procedures to restore their bodies to their pre-pregnancy shape. While mommy makeover procedures are ideal for mothers who want to restore their youthful figure, all types of women may choose to undergo this combination of procedures, even if you’ve never had children and don’t plan to have any. Many women also choose mommy makeover procedures following weight loss, to help tighten and lift sagging tissue and rejuvenate the entire body contour, or simply to combat the visible signs of aging and rejuvenate their figure.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Personalized, Unique Makeover
Your mommy makeover will be uniquely customized to help you meet your individual aesthetic goals. Our surgeon will assess your body type, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals, to recommend the most suitable combination of procedures to rejuvenate and tighten your body after pregnancy and lactation or weight loss. Pregnancy often leaves women with a thicker waistline, stretch marks, lax abdominal muscles, and sagging skin in the belly and midsection, as well as sagging breasts, and other changes that detract from your otherwise youthful appearance. Mommy makeover procedures correct all of these concerns, restoring a firm belly, a slimmer and shapelier waistline, firmer and fuller breasts, and an overall tightened and more defined body contour.
Cost and Recovery of Mommy Makeover
Save Time and Money
The benefit of combining all of these procedures is that you will undergo a single application of anesthesia, and require only one recovery period while improving several areas of your body all at once. While lengthening the anesthesia exposure time may slightly increase the risks associated with these procedures, our experienced surgeons make certain that, for an elective procedure, operative time should not go beyond six hours.
