Mommy Makeover - Sacramento
Dr. Donald Hause
"Mommy makeover" is a recent term that has gained popularity on the internet and in beauty reporting. It refers to a combination of procedures that address the normal changes of a woman’s breasts and body that result as a consequence of having children.
With pregnancy and the nursing of children, a potential Sacramento mommy makeover patient may experience the effects of breast atrophy (becoming smaller) and ptosis (sagginess) as well as abdominal muscle and skin laxity. This may also be accompanied by the undesired deposition of fat on the hips, outside thighs and abdomen. The typical "mommy makeover" consists of the combination of a breast enhancement (breast augmentation and/or breast lift (mastopexy) and body contouring (liposuction and/or tummy tuck).
Depending on the number of pregnancies, the length of time she nurses and her genetics, a woman may experience a decrease in size of her breasts as well as sagginess (ptosis). The degree of ptosis will determine whether or not a woman will need a breast lift. The type of breast lift needed will depend upon the amount of extra skin and the remaining volume of the breast tissue.
In women who have little breast tissue and a modest amount of extra skin, a Binelli "Peri-areolar" Mastopexy combined with a breast augmentation may be indicated. Conversely, those individuals who have a fair amount of breast tissue may be best served by a Lejour (Verticle) Mastopexy.
Depending on the situation of the abdomen, hips and legs, liposuction in combination with a mini-tummy tuck or full tummy tuck may be the best option.
