What Is Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover describes a combination of procedures that help women improve the appearance of their abdomen, breasts, thighs and other problem areas. Two or more surgical (and sometimes non-surgical) treatments are performed to address cosmetic changes to a woman’s body due to pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
The most common mommy makeover treatment plans include some combination of breast lift, liposuction, breast reduction, breast augmentation and/or tummy tuck. Popular skin treatments, such as chemical peels and skin tightening procedures, may also be included in certain treatment plans. The goal of mommy makeover is to help women feel more confident in their bodies, especially after giving birth.
How Can I Customize My Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover is highly customizable. In other words, no two mommy makeover results are the same. There are a number of combinations and customizations that can be used to create your ideal mommy makeover results.
Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation
Tummy tuck and breast augmentation can be combined during mommy makeover to address the most common areas of concern due to childbirth: the abdomen and the breasts. With this combination, the patient can achieve pre-pregnancy tightness in the abdomen and a youthful profile. Volume loss in the breasts during breastfeeding is a common complaint. Breast augmentation can correct this issue and provide the desired body contour.
Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift
Adding breast augmentation to tummy tuck results in a slimming, tightening effect. Opting for breast lift in place of breast augmentation can help you retain your original size while enhancing the position of your breasts.
Liposuction and Breast Reduction
Typically, mommy makeovers include breast augmentation or lift. However, it’s an excellent opportunity for women with larger breasts to take advantage of this process. This combination appeals to those that are more interested in reducing their breast size and regaining a slimmer and more defined body contour.
