One of the best things about the mommy makeover is that your operation is customized to include the procedures that are best for you and your concerns. For many women, a mommy makeover involves breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and liposuction. However, you and your surgeon may develop a different surgical plan that better suits your needs.
This post is to help you understand what’s included in a typical mommy makeover, and what each procedure can do for you.
Tummy Tuck: Slim and Smooth Your Midsection
Pregnancy, major weight fluctuations, and aging can leave you with excess skin, stretch marks, and a pooch. Although a balanced diet and consistent workouts can make your body stronger and leaner, exercise is powerless against excess skin and diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles). A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) repairs the muscles and removes excess skin, leaving you with a slimmer waist, firmer belly, and smoother skin. You may also get a better-looking bellybutton or C-section scar.
Breast Enhancement: Enjoy Shapelier, Perkier Breasts
Breastfeeding and pregnancy can change the size, shape, and position of your breasts. Adding breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both to your mommy makeover can give you the rounder, perkier breasts you once had—or even better!
If you are a mom or woman with overly large breasts that make you feel uncomfortable, breast reduction is also an option.
Liposuction: Sculpt Away Stubborn Fat
Pregnancy may have left you with stubborn fat deposits on areas such as the lower abdomen, flanks, upper arms, back, or thighs. Liposuction is a great option for contouring your body when diet and exercise just aren’t enough. Just remember, liposuction isn’t a weight loss procedure. You should be at a healthy, sustainable BMI before your mommy makeover.
Vaginal Rejuvenation: Feel Comfortable and Confident
Some women experience changes to their vulva or vagina as a result of pregnancy, and this can cause physical discomfort, self-consciousness, or insecurity. We offer labiaplasty to reshape elongated, stretched, or irregularly shaped inner vaginal lips (labia minora). We also offer ThermiVa® to firm and tighten both the inner and the outer vaginal tissues.
What’s the Recipe for Your Mommy Makeover?
Again, a mommy makeover is customized to you. As long as your surgeon agrees that it’s safe and beneficial, you may add or swap other surgical or nonsurgical procedures.
