Do you like the way your body looks, especially after having children? Or would you prefer it to be trimmer, tighter and more toned? In other words, would you like to have your younger, pre-childbearing body back? If your answer is yes, I recommend a Mommy Makeover. As well as this type of cosmetic surgery, I offer a full range of other body sculpting procedures that can help you achieve a firmer, more shapely body. To learn more, click here.
A Mommy Makeover can correct changes from having children that diet and exercise can’t
Many mothers find that diet and exercise aren’t enough to reverse the physical toll of pregnancy, childbearing and breast feeding. Some of these physical changes can become permanent without surgical intervention, such as separated abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, excess skin and stubborn pockets of fat.
That’s where a Mommy Makeover comes in. This surgical procedure can help tighten the abdominal core, lift the breasts, remove hanging skin and eliminate excess fat.
A plastic surgery with an extremely high satisfaction rate
According to a June 2020 survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of RealSelf, a leading source for people considering cosmetic treatment, an impressive 97% of patients said that a Mommy Makeover is worth having. This plastic surgery technique also made the top ten list of highly-rated aesthetic procedures.
A combination of procedures―you choose the ones you’d like to have
A Mommy Makeover consists of a customized combination of surgical procedures. Having several procedures at the same time rather than individually is actually more beneficial — not only do you get better results but you undergo one recovery downtime rather than several, so you are inconvenienced as little as possible. In my plastic surgery practice, I use the latest, state-of-the-art techniques to minimize my patients’ pain and recovery time so they can quickly return to their families and their lives.
Choose from these 6 procedures for a trimmer, younger-looking body
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.
Are you a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover? You need to:
- 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
How much does a Mommy Makeover cost?
One of the first questions my patients usually ask me when they’re considering having a Mommy Makeover is how much it will cost. My answer is that there is no one standard price. Recognizing that every woman’s body and desired results are unique to her, I determine the exact cost of a Mommy Makeover after I have met with the patient, evaluated her body type, amount of fat stores, overall physical condition and her personal goals and expectations. Then together, we will decide which combination of plastic surgery procedures will achieve the best possible results. For further pricing details, please contact me.
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.
