Mommy Makeover Procedures
“Mommy makeover” is the term that describes two or more plastic surgery procedures that are performed to help a new mom restore her pre-pregnancy figure. While many new mothers exercise and eat right in an effort to get their bodies back in shape, they are still left with stubborn fat around their hips and abdomen, as well as breasts that may have lost volume and skin elasticity due to nursing. Because mommy makeover procedures are aimed at reversing the effects of pregnancy and nursing on the body, the best candidates are women who are done breastfeeding and do not plan on having any more children. Many surgeons also recommend that mommy makeover patients maintain a stable weight for several months before undergoing any plastic surgery procedure, as this can help maximize results.
Most women want to focus on removing the excess fat that has settled around their tummies, hips, thighs, and buttocks, as well as restoring youthful perkiness and volume to their breasts. Based on these common appearance goals, a mommy makeover may include:
- A breast lift and/or breast augmentation
- A tummy tuck
- A buttocks lift
Some women may also opt to have liposuction performed on their thighs, lower abdomen, lower back, or hips, to sculpt and smooth the contours of their figure. Depending on which procedures you choose to undergo, your surgeon may perform your mommy makeover as two or more separate procedures. This will help you recover and heal properly, and can also minimize the possibility of common risks associated with plastic surgery, such as infection, bleeding, and unfavorable scarring.
