What is Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Mommy makeover is essentially a combination of two or more cosmetic surgery procedures that are performed at the same time with an aim to provide an improved physical appearance. A cosmetic surgeon may perform this procedure for a mother who is keen to regain her pre-pregnancy figure. Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women can develop stubborn pockets of fat in specific areas of the body, experience breast volume loss, stretch marks and loose skin in the abdominal area, or other aesthetic concerns.
In such cases, a mommy makeover plastic surgery can be performed on suitable candidates to restore a more youthful looking appearance. Mommy makeovers typically involve breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty, body contouring or other surgeries to achieve comprehensive and long lasting aesthetic outcomes. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive this treatment from Dr. Seify.
Mothers who are in their late twenties to mid thirties constitute the largest demographic for mommy makeover cosmetic surgery. To evaluate a suitable candidate, the surgeon will check the patient’s overall health condition, previous surgeries if any, anatomy of various areas of the body that may need correction, and the patient’s personal aesthetic goals. The patient should ideally be a non-smoker or ready to stop smoking several weeks prior to the procedure.
A mommy makeover may include the following procedures performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon:
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is one of the common procedures included as a part of a mommy makeover. During pregnancy, the abdomen gets stretched and many women will put on extra weight around the waist. Tummy tuck can effectively reduce excess skin and fat tissue to achieve a firmer abdomen.
If the patient has suffered loss of breast volume following the pregnancy or breastfeeding, a breast implant procedure may be included as a part of a mommy makeover. This will increase the size of breasts and make the overall appearance more attractive as per the patient’s aesthetic needs.
If the breast size is normal, but the breasts appear to droop or sag heavily following a pregnancy, a mom may opt for breast lift surgery. This procedure will involve removal of loose skin, repositioning of nipples, and raising the breasts to a more youthful level.
One of the most popular and effective procedures included in a mommy makeover is liposuction. This procedure can easily be combined with other surgeries. It can be used to perform targeted fat reduction from specific areas of the body to achieve the desired overall aesthetic results.
