Mommy Makeover: Combined Surgical Procedures for Today’s Moms

Keynote.002

After multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding, many women find it impossible for diet and exercise alone to restore their figures. Fortunately, mothers with permanently altered figures find that a Mommy Makeover is an excellent solution. The Mommy Makeover is a term for the group of cosmetic procedures that many mothers seek following pregnancy. These include the following:

  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Facial surgery

There are multiple variations of the Mommy Makeover, of course, and a plan must be individualised for each patient depending on their needs. Many women will not need or desire all of these procedures. Each patient determines what her personal Mommy Makeover will involve after we discuss her concerns and options in a thorough consultation.Combined Surgical Procedures

A Mommy Makeover may be performed in one or more phases. The patient’s age, health, needs and other emotional considerations. desires are all considered carefully when a plan is constructed for each patient. The majority of patients choose to do more than one procedure at a time.

Tummy Tuck

The abdomen tends to change appearance following pregnancy with stretch marks, loose skin and lower abdominal fat. The abdominal muscles may also be stretched to the point that they remain separated in the midline, accentuating the patient’s lower abdominal bulge. To treat these problems, a tummy tuck may be performed where the excess skin and fat is removed from the abdomen and the muscles are tightened.

Liposuction

After having children, fat tends to redistribute in many unwanted areas of the body. This is often true even for women who were successful at losing their baby weight. Most often, bulges of fat accumulate around the waist and on the thighs. On these areas, liposuction is frequently performed as part of a Mommy Makeover. A preferred technique is power-assisted liposuction, the safest and most effective way to remove fat from these areas.

Breast Surgery

The breasts go through dramatic changes with pregnancy and breastfeeding.  The most common breast procedures performed as part of a Mommy Makeover are:

A Mommy Makeover refers to the common group of procedures that many mothers seek after they decide not to have any more children. Many times, the operation is performed at once, but other moms prefer to do the procedures over time. In either case, it gives many mothers comfort to know that the changes they see in their bodies following pregnancy may be improved dramatically by a skilled plastic surgeon.
