Would you like to look better in a bathing suit? Are you ready to finally get rid of the sagging skin and excess fat that have accumulated as a result of having children? Do you long to have fuller, rounder buttocks and higher, larger breasts? If your answer to these questions is yes, I would like to recommend that you consider having one or more of the body sculpting procedures that when combined, are known as a Mommy Makeover.
Whether you decide to have one of these procedures or several, a Mommy Makeover helps women of all ages and body types regain the curvy shape they had before pregnancy, or even achieve a better body than they had before. To learn more about the full range of body sculpting procedures I offer, click here.
Is a Mommy Makeover right for you?
Mommy Makeover surgery is a combination of procedures customized for each individual patient’s expectations and desired results. Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover should:
- be in good medical health
- be at or near their ideal body weight
- have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
- be finished with childbearing
- not smoke or drink excessively
A Mommy Makeover is really a combination of procedures
Practically all of the physical changes that come with pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can be beautifully improved with a number of body sculpting procedures, including:
Breast augmentation surgery is performed to enlarge small breasts, underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have decreased in size after a woman has had children. It can also make breasts more symmetrical if one is significantly larger or smaller than the other. There are three types of breast implants available in the U.S.: saline (sterile saltwater), silicone gel, the Ideal Implant (a structured, saline-filled implant) and the Natrelle® Gummy Breast Implant.
Breast lift surgery restores the shape and contour of breasts that have sagged as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, age, gravity, heredity and other factors. This procedure re-positions the nipple and areola (the pink skin surrounding the nipple) to a higher position, moves the breast tissue to a higher level, removes excess skin from the lower portion of the breast, and reshapes the remaining breast skin.Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. As long as you maintain your weight, liposuction is a permanent solution for fat removal. The most commonly-requested areas of the body for liposuction are: waist, hips, flanks, arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks and lower legs.
A Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to take pockets of excess fat from unwanted areas such as your belly, waist or thighs and transfer it to the buttocks area, increasing the size, shape, position and fullness of your butt. The benefits of a Brazilian butt lift are two-fold: it slims and trims those areas where you have too much fat, while giving you a higher, fuller, firmer butt. Plus, since a Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat, there is very little risk of rejection.
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is a highly effective way to reduce excess fat and skin and tighten abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck removes loose, flabby skin that has lost its shape and elasticity, strengthens weakened stomach muscles, improves the look and shape of the belly button, defines the waist, removes stretch marks, and creates a smoother, tighter midsection.
Lower body lift surgery, often done in conjunction with liposuction, reduces excess fat and loose, hanging skin. It is also very effective at tightening and sculpting the buttocks, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips and abdomen. This surgery may also help minimize the appearance of cellulite.
Do you need to lose weight before a Mommy Makeover?
While it is true that some fat will be removed during your Mommy Makeover, you will need to have lost the bulk of your “baby weight” before the surgery. This is necessary for optimal skin resection. I recommend being no more than 25 pounds over your goal weight before the procedure(s).
The best patient is an informed patient
As a highly experienced plastic surgeon, I feel strongly that my patients should be as well-informed as possible before undergoing any kind of surgical procedure. In addition, they should be realistic about the results they are expecting to see after surgery. For that reason, I meet extensively with each patient beforehand so that together, we can achieve the best possible results.
Will my insurance pay for this surgery?
Generally speaking, Mommy Makeover surgery is considered to be an elective cosmetic procedure, meaning that it is not covered by insurance.
Considering a Mommy Makeover?
I understand that choosing any of the Mommy Makeover procedures is an important decision for a woman. I also know how much it means to each and every one of my patients to achieve the results she wants. If you are thinking about getting a Mommy Makeover and would like to schedule a free consultation to talk about it, please contact me and I will send you additional information prior to your appointment. To make sure you are fully informed about your surgery options and understand exactly what results to expect, I will take all the time you need to make sure all your questions are answered.
