Mommy Makeover’s Are They Worth The Investment?

It is often been said that women pay a tremendous price for pregnancy and childbirth when it comes to the size and shape of their body after birth. This realization has led to the popularity of what is known as the “mommy makeover “procedure. According to recent online article a mommy makeover is not a single procedure but instead a series of aesthetic procedures designed to help mothers regain their prepregnancy shape and contour. While many women choose diet and exercise following pregnancy, the reality is even after dieting and exercising extensively for many women there are specific concerns that cannot be corrected with diet and exercise. These are most commonly a sagging component to the breast and loose and lax skin on the abdomen. The sagging component to the breast is due to the stretching of the breast during pregnancy as the breast is filled with milk. After birth, whether breast-feeding or not when the skin retracts, and volume is lost, it is likely that the woman will have some degree of sagging. Essentially the same thing happens with the stretching of the abdomen. The abdominal muscle is also stretched during pregnancy and regardless of how many situps and stomach crunches a woman performs the bulge may still be noticeable. According to the article it is not difficult to find women who are extremely satisfied with the “mommy makeover” procedure. While combining two procedures will have an overall higher plastic surgery investment, in most cases performing them separately would be higher overall cost. Dr. Seify explains to patients that when choosing to have surgical procedures combined like breast augmentation and abdominoplasty, it is important not to make the decision solely on price. Patients must be healthy and good candidates for combined procedures. When liposuction is added to the “mommy makeover”procedure it is critical that patients understand the limitations of liposuction when combined with abdominoplasty. Patients overwhelmingly feel as though the breast augmentation and abdominoplasty combination is well worth the investment of time and money. Patients who are considering the mommy makeover are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation.
