Mommy Makeovers: Not Just for Moms
Mommy Makeover surgeries at our Baton Rouge practice aren’t just for women who have had children. While the term has grown increasingly popular, you don’t have to be a mom to benefit from the procedures that we typically perform with this operation. By combining surgeries, you can get the results of several treatments for the recovery time of only one, whether or not you’ve been pregnant.
In this blog post, I’ll explain what exactly a Mommy Makeover entails, and how you may benefit from one—even if you’ve never had children.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
Mommy Makeovers can be personalized to include a variety of procedures, but they typically combine a breast and a body procedure. Options include:
- Breast augmentation: This procedure restores volume and increases the size of naturally small breasts with the use of implants. When combined with a breast lift, it helps correct breasts that are deflated or sagging due to breastfeeding or the natural aging process.
- Breast reduction: If disproportionately large breasts are causing discomfort or decreased confidence, a breast reduction can help by removing excess tissue and creating a lifting effect.
- Tummy tuck: Common after pregnancy or significant weight loss, this procedure removes stretched excess skin from the tummy and tightens weak abdominal muscles to create a firm, flat midsection.
- Liposuction: This body contouring procedure removes or reduces unwanted fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise. It’s frequently used to help sculpt the abdomen, thighs, arms, and back. Learn about nonsurgical alternatives to liposuction in this blog post.
Choosing a Mommy Makeover
The nickname “Mommy Makeover” came from the fact that it treats conccerns that are widespread among women who have had children. However, many women have concerns with the breasts, abdomen, flanks, thighs, etc. even if they’ve never had children. Factors including weight loss, aging, and genetics all affect the body and may cause changes a Mommy Makeover can treat.
Many women are looking for ways to address multiple issues without undergoing multiple surgeries, and a Mommy Makeover offers a solution that includes just 1 operation and recovery period of 10 to 14 days. It’s an ideal option for anyone looking to make a number of cosmetic improvements to their body in one combined operation.
