Men usually tend to store excess fat in the mid-torso area such as the flanks, the “spare tire” region, “love handles,” “muffin top”, and “beer belly.” These are the sites that male liposuction cosmetic surgery specifically targets.

Women tend to store fat in the region between their ribs and knees. However, men put on weight in different sites. Therefore, men considering liposuction should seek a surgeon who has expertise in eliminating excess fat while contouring the male torso for a more toned, fit, and handsome appearance.

In performing male liposuction, the surgeon may create tiny apertures with a narrow needle to place the cannula instead of making bigger incisions on the skin. This prevents the development of any noticeable scarring or tell-tale signs following the liposuction procedure.

Judicious board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides male liposuction to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding locations in this region of The Golden State.

Various Types of Male Liposuction

In traditional liposuction plastic surgery, the surgeon removes excess fat through slender, hollow wands known as cannulae. The surgeon will manually manipulate the blunt cannula in the deeper fat layers to dislodge the unwanted fat cells.

Tumescent liposuction (super-wet-technique liposuction) involves the injection of saline solution into the fatty deposits prior to male liposuction. This helps loosen the fat and reduce bruising and bleeding by contracting the blood vessels.

Laser liposuction is also known as “Smart Lipo”. In this procedure, the surgeon passes a probe beneath the skin to melt the fatty pockets. This transforms the fat into a liquefied. The surgeon then removes this liquefied fat through traditional liposuction in a less traumatic manner.

However, laser lipo is carried out only in smaller areas. The surgeon would not use it on more significant regions as it can lead to the creation of a massive amount of fluid beneath the skin, causing seroma formation. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) uses ultrasonic wavelengths to dislodge fat enabling easy extraction.

Motivation to Maintain a Healthy Body

Male liposuction is an effective body contouring treatment. However, it does not treat obesity, and it cannot replace a balanced diet and exercise regimen.

A good incidental benefit of male liposuction is that many men are more motivated to follow a healthy lifestyle after experiencing the near instant slimming effect of the procedure. It is not uncommon for such men to remain committed to weight loss and enjoy an enhancement in their self-esteem.

Male Liposuction Goals

No amount of diet and exercise can help reduce fat in certain sites on the body. In such cases, male liposuction can help the patient eliminate these stubborn deposits of fat creating a slimmer, more sculpted torso with toned abs. Male liposuction can successfully eliminate an unappealing “muffin top” of surplus fat that spills out over the belt or waistband.

Liposuction | Mini Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Newport Beach | Orange CountyMini tummy tuck cosmetic surgery, also known as partial abdominoplasty, and liposuction are body contouring procedures designed to achieve a flatter and smoother abdomen. Both surgeries are aimed to address the specific needs of different patients. However, in certain situations, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend a combination of both to achieve more effective outcomes.

Most patients will need to know during the preliminary consultation whether mini tummy tuck or liposuction plastic surgery may be the more suitable procedure in their case. Before making the recommendation, the surgeon will assess the patient’s overall appearance as well as evaluate their unique aesthetic goals. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing both mini tummy tuck and liposuction to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas.

Right Candidates

A cosmetic surgery procedure such as liposuction may be more appropriate for individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of stubborn fat pockets in the abdominal area. If the fat tissue is resistant to diet and exercise, and the patient has otherwise moderate body weight except fat accumulation in the tummy area, he or she may be a stellar and terrific candidate for liposuction. A suitable candidate will have fairly impressive skin elasticity in the abdominal region so that the skin will retract and remain firm after liposuction plastic surgery.

A candidate for mini tummy tuck procedure will be someone who has excess loose skin below the navel area. For such patients, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend a mini tummy tuck. Aging, weight fluctuations, or pregnancy are typical causes that may lead to loss of skin elasticity in the tummy area.

The Correct Avenue to Walk Down

If excess fat tissue is not a problem and the underlying muscles are strong, a mini tummy tuck procedure may suffice. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Seify provides this surgery to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby locations.

Surgical Techniques

In most cases, both liposuction and mini tummy tuck surgeries can be performed without the need for general anesthesia. Tumescent technique in case of liposuction will avoid the need for general anesthesia, and produce targeted outcomes in a less invasive manner. The surgeon will insert a cannula through a small incision in the lower abdomen and dislodge the unwanted fat cells. A syringe or suction pump will be used to draw out the fat through the cannula.

In case of mini tummy tuck surgery, the focus is primarily on the lower abdominal area. Loose skin will be excised with the help of laser or through traditional surgery. If the patient needs both fat removal and skin tightening, the surgeon may recommend a combination of liposuction and mini tummy tuck surgery.

Recovery Period

Recovery in both mini tummy tuck and liposuction may take around five to seven days. Most patients will be able to return to their work within a week. Full results of the procedure will establish over the next several weeks as the swelling subsides gradually. If both procedures are performed in combination, the recovery period may be a little longer

Liposuction vs. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Orlange County Plastic SurgeonSedentary lifestyles, unbalanced diet, hereditary factors, and pregnancy are some of the common causes of accumulation of excess fats in certain areas of the body. In cosmetic surgery, liposuction and tummy tuck are two of the more popular treatments designed to improve body contours. If the stubborn fats around the abdominal area are resistant to diet or exercise, the patient may have to choose between liposuction and tummy tuck plastic surgery.

During the initial consultation process, an experienced cosmetic surgeon will discuss both treatment options with the patient and explain the pros and cons of both in accordance with the patient’s specific condition. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas, seeking body contouring and other procedures may consult with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify.

Comprehensive Surgery

In contrast to liposuction cosmetic surgery, tummy tuck is a relatively more comprehensive procedure when it comes to achieving a flatter and firmer tummy. The singular goal with liposuction is to remove unwanted fat tissue, but if the patient suffers from sagging skin or needs repair of weak underlying abdominal muscles, liposuction will not help. Patients who need to reverse skin laxity and separated muscles in the upper or lower abdomen may have to opt for tummy tuck, which is a more comprehensive plastic surgery procedure.

An experienced cosmetic surgeon will assess the patient’s condition carefully and understand the patient’s unique aesthetic needs before making a suitable recommendation. A wrong choice of surgery may help achieve a flatter abdomen, but it may appear unsightly due to loose, hanging skin, and weak muscles. Dr. Seify is a well-known plastic surgeon who provides both liposuction and tummy tuck surgeries to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Differences in Complexity

Liposuction is a relatively less complex procedure, which has made it increasingly popular surgery over the years. Risks are fewer, and recovery period is shorter with this procedure. Advanced surgical techniques such as tumescent liposuction have eliminated the need for general anesthesia, and made the procedure more targeted and conservative. Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient surgery, and scarring is significantly lower.

Tummy tuck surgery, on the other hand, can be a more complex procedure, especially when it involves tightening of underlying muscles. Scarring will be longer and more conspicuous compared to liposuction, but an experienced surgeon will try to hide the scar in the abdominal crease. A full abdominoplasty procedure will usually involve general anesthesia, and some patients may have to spend a night at the surgical facility. Tummy tuck may involve about two weeks of recovery on average, as compared to about one week in case of liposuction.

Results

Both liposuction and tummy tuck surgery will produce long lasting outcomes provided the patient maintains a regimen of regular exercise and a balanced diet. Both procedures are designed for body contouring, and are not meant to be weight loss surgeries. Patients with moderate body weight make ideal candidates for liposuction and tummy tuck.

Liposuction Plastic Surgery Cost Orange County | Newport Beach SurgeonPeople with moderate body weight may sometimes suffer from excess fat deposits in specific parts of the body. This condition can be corrected with liposuction cosmetic surgery, which is a fat reduction procedure designed to achieve improved body contours. The plastic surgeon will discuss various aspects of liposuction surgery, including its estimated costs during the initial consultation process.

Factors that Determine the Cost

The cost of liposuction will differ between two practices, and sometimes may even differ between two patients at the same practice. The following are responsible for determining the overall cost of surgery:

Where the Practice is Located

Practice location can make a difference to the average cost of liposuction plastic surgery. The cost of living can vary from one place to another, and it can impact the average cost of most types of products and services. For instance, the cost of liposuction in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and nearby areas may not be the same as the cost of the procedure in Phoenix.

Surgeon’s Fee

The fee of the plastic surgeon may vary according to their qualifications, experience and reputation in the field of liposuction and similar procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should choose the most appropriate surgeon for their needs, while treating the surgeon’s fee only as a secondary factor of consideration in such a decision.

Costs of Anesthesia and Surgical Facility

If the liposuction cosmetic surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the fee charged by the anesthesiologist may depend on their acumen and experience. The costs of the operating room may vary depending on the kind of equipment, facilities, and experience staff is available at a particular location.

Complexity of the Procedure

In some cases, only a minor liposuction surgery may be involved if the area to be treated is smaller, such as the cheeks, knees or neck. For larger areas such as the abdomen, back, hips or thighs, more extensive surgery may be involved. The cosmetic surgeon may make use of different techniques involving ultrasound, laser, or other technologies. Therefore, the cost in each case may vary slightly, depending on the nature and complexity of the procedure involved.

Average Cost of Surgery

According to the ASPS figures released for 2013, the average national cost of liposuction in the US was $2,866. However, this cost is exclusive of major cost components such as anesthesia, operating room costs and other related expenses. The final cost of liposuction will vary depending on various factors as discussed above.

Health Insurance and Financing

Liposuction is usually performed as an aesthetic surgery. Therefore, the costs will not be covered by the health insurance company. However, patients can explore various financing options in order to make the payment in convenient monthly installments that does not violate their budget or financial constraints.

Liposuction Plastic Surgery Orange County | Newport Beach | LipoLiposuction Overview

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removal of excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body using a suction technique. The procedure is highly effective in achieving improvement in the body contour for patients who need and want to reduce stubborn fat pockets which have not responded to diet or exercise. Liposuction Before & After Photos

In some cases, the plastic surgeon may perform liposuction in combination with other surgical procedures for harmonious outcomes. Dr. Hisham Seify provides liposuction among other plastic surgery procedures to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Outstanding Candidates

An appropriate candidate for liposuction is someone with moderate and stable body weight but having excess fat tissue in specific areas of the body such as hips, thighs, waist, calves, back, cheeks, or neck.

The cosmetic surgeon will examine the health condition, history of previous surgeries and the personal aesthetic goals of patient before recommending liposuction. Good candidates will be non-smokers or committed to quitting smoking several weeks before and after the procedure.

Procedure

Liposuction cosmetic surgery can be performed using various techniques, depending on the needs of a particular patient. The procedure involves insertion of tiny, blunt tipped cannulas through discreetly placed incisions in the targeted areas of the body. Fat is dislodged using these cannulas as the plastic surgeon moves them around underneath the skin, and suctioned out using injections.

Advanced techniques are now available to perform liposuction in a safe, less painful, and more effective manner. Dr. Seify makes use of the latest liposuction techniques for his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other locations. The procedure may be performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation, and in most cases it can be done as an outpatient surgery.

Techniques

Some of the latest liposuction techniques employed to perform liposuction plastic surgery are as follows:

Tumescent Liposuction

This is a popular, conservative technique that involves the use of local anesthesia to numb the targeted area of the body where the cannula will be inserted. A significant amount of anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is delivered to the marked fatty tissue through injections before traditional surgery is performed. This technique can avoid the need for general anesthesia, making it a simpler procedure with a faster recovery.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

This technique involves the use of ultrasound waves targeted directly over the targeted area. The ultrasound energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the tissue and liquefies the fat. This makes it easier to dislodge the unwanted fat. Ultrasound based liposuction technique is more commonly employed when the fat is to be removed from larger areas such as the abdomen, sides, and back.

Laser Assisted Liposuction

This technique involves the use of low energy laser beam to heat up the deeper layers of the targeted tissue, without causing any damage to the healthy surrounding tissue. The results with laser liposuction are remarkably precise. The laser energy liquefies the fat, which is then removed using a small cannula. Recovery in case of liposuction will depend on the technique used and the extent of surgery performed.

Mommy Makeover Orange County | Newport BeachMommy makeover is a comprehensive plastic surgery procedure aimed at restoring the pre-pregnancy figure for a mother. As this cosmetic surgery can involve multiple procedures and is highly customizable, many new patients will have several queries and concerns about it.

Dr. Hisham Seify, a board certified plastic surgeon, will address the patient’s queries in detail during the initial consultation. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and other areas have an opportunity to receive this procedure from him. Here is a set of frequently asked questions that should help new patients get answers to some of the basic issues related to a mommy makeover.

Who is a suitable candidate for a mommy makeover?

The cosmetic surgeon will evaluate the key areas of the body that may need surgical improvement, and assess other factors such as the patient’s general health, previous surgeries if any, and her personal aesthetic goals. Patients with a fair amount of skin elasticity will usually achieve the best outcomes with a mommy makeover procedure.

Why is a mommy makeover better than having the procedures one at a time?

In case of a mommy makeover plastic surgery, it becomes possible for a surgeon to create a comprehensive and cohesive treatment plan for best outcomes in a most conservative manner. Secondly, the patient is required to undergo the typical risks, pain and discomfort associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure only once. In individual procedures, general anesthesia will be required separately each time. Separate recovery periods will be involved, where as in a mommy makeover, multiple procedures will entail a single recovery period.

What is the right age for a mommy makeover?

It primarily depends on an individual patient when they would like to go through a mommy makeover. A plastic surgeon would usually recommend mothers in their twenties and thirties to opt for this surgery if they are keen for it. In these age groups, the skin is fairly elastic and the body resilience is very high for multiple procedures and quicker recovery.

How much time should a woman wait after childbirth to go for this procedure?

Dr. Seify would recommend this procedure to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby locations only once their body is back to normal after childbirth. Once the body weight has stabilized and breastfeeding has stopped, the patient is usually in a position to undergo a mommy makeover. It may take about four to five months before a mom’s body returns to normal, with the exception of breastfeeding.

What is the average duration of a mommy makeover surgery?

The average duration of a mommy makeover procedure will depend on the number and extent of surgeries involved. For instance, if the patient needs to undergo breast augmentation, breast lift and tummy tuck together, the procedure may take about four to five hours in the operating room.

What is the estimated recovery period?

Recovery process may vary from one patient to another based on several factors. However, most patients will be ready to go back to a desk job within 10 to 14 days. Strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercises should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. This can include lifting heavy grocery bags or relocating your couch in the living room to more desirable location, for example.

Mommy Makeover Before and After Photos

A mommy makeover cosmetic surgery refers to a combination of two or more procedures designed for moms to restore their pre-pregnancy figure. The procedure is highly customizable and may be performed using a variety of techniques and surgical approaches.

During the initial consultation for a mommy makeover, the plastic surgeon will show the before and after photographs to a new patient to give them an indication of the kind of look they can expect after this surgery. Dr. Hisham Seify is an experienced cosmetic surgeon providing mommy makeover among other procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

What are Mommy Makeover Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery refer to a pair or a group of images belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same procedure successfully. The photographs include images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the bruising and swelling have resolved and full effects of the surgery are apparent.

The plastic surgeon will take these pictures discreetly with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients during the initial consultation. The only goal of these pictures is to educate new patients about the potential effectiveness of the procedure, and help them make an informed decision. The images serve as a visual tool for the surgeon who can explain various aspects of a mommy makeover more effectively.

Benefits

Many of the new patients may only have a vague idea of what the mommy makeover plastic surgery can do for them. Several treatment approaches and techniques may be available for this procedure, and the surgeon will make the appropriate choices in consultation with the patient. For a patient, it can get difficult to choose the right combination of procedures to match with their personal aesthetic goals.

This is where the cosmetic surgeon will make use of mommy makeover before and after photos to educate the patient correctly about the surgery before a final decision is taken. Dr. Seify tries to ensure that mommy makeover before and after images are made available to his patient in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas during the initial consultation.

Being Realistic about the Results

Mommy makeover is one of the most comprehensive procedures in aesthetic plastic surgery, and the results can be very significant. However, it is still of paramount importance to ensure that the patient understands the potential outcome of the procedure correctly and forms realistic expectations about it. Patients with clear aesthetic goals, positive frame of mind and realistic expectations will typically achieve higher satisfaction levels in a mommy makeover.

This is where before and after photos can play a key role in helping ensure that the patient knows clearly what to expect and what not to expect from the surgery. Surgeons may also put up the mommy makeover before and after pictures on their practice website to enable free access to anyone who needs to know more about this procedure and its potential effectiveness.

Financial Considerations for a Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover plastic surgery is a major procedure involving two or more surgeries performed together. Therefore, the cost of a mommy makeover will usually be higher compared to a single cosmetic surgery procedure. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify discusses the estimated costs of the procedure with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas during the initial consultation.

Cost Variations

A mommy makeover procedure is highly customizable and the type and number of surgeries can be decided according to the individual needs of a patient. Therefore, the cost of this procedure can vary from one patient to another even when it is performed by the same cosmetic surgeon.

If a patient requires significant improvements in the physical appearance and is a fit candidate for multiple procedures, the surgeon may include tummy tuck, breast implants, liposuction or other procedures as a part of the mommy makeover plastic surgery. The cost will be determined in proportion to the nature and extent of the procedures performed.

Cost-effectiveness

In some ways, a mommy makeover procedure is more cost-effective when compared to the cost of an individual cosmetic surgery procedure. When a procedure is performed individually, the costs of general anesthesia, operating room costs, surgeon’s fee and other related expenses such as medical tests, prescription drugs, surgical garments and others are likely to remain the same.

In case of a mommy makeover, the plastic surgeon can combine all the procedures in one go. This eliminates duplication of costs, improves the efficiency of the procedure, and helps achieve more cohesive aesthetic outcomes. Furthermore, when multiple procedures are performed together, in many cases, the cosmetic surgeon may provide them at a discounted price as a part of a package.

Therefore, patients should consider all cost-related factors carefully while evaluating whether to choose a mommy makeover. Dr. Seify will discuss these cost aspects at the time of the initial consultation with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas.

Average Cost of a Mommy Makeover

The average cost of a mommy makeover may range from $8,000 to $20,000, depending on the extent and number of procedures involved, among other factors. Patients should have a fair idea of the individual costs of the procedures that will be a part of their mommy makeover. This will provide them with a comparison of the financial impact of the entire procedure performed as a package.

The statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics in 2012 indicated that the average cost of tummy tuck in the US was $5,241, the cost of breast implants was $3,543, the cost of breast lift was $4,332, and the cost of liposuction was $2,852. However, these basic costs exclude the costs of anesthesia, operating facility costs and other related expenses.

The ASPS also advised that the costs of a mommy makeover would vary from one practice to another based on several factors. Patients may explore various financing options that are available in order to make payments of the procedure in convenient monthly installments.

Mommy Makeover Overview

Mommy makeover has emerged as one of the more sought after plastic surgery procedures in recent years. As the surgical techniques became more advanced, it has become safer and easier to perform major procedures such as mommy makeover. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing mommy makeover among other procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas.

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.

Suitable Candidates

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.

Procedure

A mommy makeover may include the following procedures performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon:

Abdominoplasty

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.

Breast Implants

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.

Breast Lift Surgery

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.

Liposuction

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.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover is the name given to a set of cosmetic surgery procedures that can help improve the physical appearance of a woman in a comprehensive manner. As the name suggests, a mommy makeover is typically designed for moms who are keen to regain their pre-pregnancy figure with the help of surgical procedures. Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can result in substantive changes to the physical appearance of the mother in many cases.

Moms may experience major weight gain, develop excess fat deposits in certain parts of the body such as abdomen, thighs, and the arms, and may also experience loss of breast volume following nursing. Pregnancy may cause stretch marks around the tummy area, and the mom may end up with excess loose skin in the abdomen after the baby’s delivery. For a mom, this can be an unhappy experience to experience the loss of figure and shape, and appear relatively older than her actual age.

For moms in and around Newport Beach and Orange County, CA, who may be keen to restore their body to their pre-pregnancy days, Dr. Seify may recommend a mommy makeover procedure. As an experienced plastic surgeon, he will first evaluate whether the patient is a terrific and proper candidate for this comprehensive procedure. A mommy makeover typically involves procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction surgery. The procedure will be custom designed to match with the unique needs and aesthetic goals of the patient.

Breast Implants

Pregnancy and breastfeeding may sometimes cause a loss of breast volume, and the mother may be left with deflated breasts. This can make the overall body figure disproportionate. The surgeon may recommend breast implant procedure to restore breast volume, fullness, and size. The surgery involves placement of saline or silicone gel based implants in the breasts. Implants are available different sizes, types, shapes and textures, and the patient can make an appropriate choice in consultation with the surgeon.

Breast Reduction

Some women may put on excessive weight following a pregnancy, and it may also result in additional fat tissue deposits in the breast region. Heavier breasts may cause distortion of the overall shapely figure, and may also result in pain, discomfort and restriction of movements for the mother. The surgeon may recommend breast reduction surgery as a part of a mommy makeover in such case.

Breast Lift

Sometimes the breasts may not lose volume, but the skin may lose its elasticity, which causes the breasts to sag. The nipples may also point downwards in such condition. A breast lift surgery may be advised as a part of a mommy makeover in such case. It may or may not be combined with breast augmentation, depending on the patient’s condition of breasts.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is commonly included as a part of mommy makeovers. Abdominal area bears the maximum brunt of a pregnancy in most cases. The cosmetic surgeon may recommend tummy tuck surgery to reduce excess fats, tighten loose, or separated underlying muscles and remove loose skin to make the tummy smoother, firmer, and flatter once again.

Liposuction

If the mom has developed excess fat deposits in specific areas of the body such as tummy, thighs, hips, arms, calves or neck, a liposuction may be performed as a part of a mommy makeover procedure. Dr. Seify recommends liposuction for his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and nearby areas if one or more areas in the body are uneven due to fatty deposits.

Body Lift

Body lift may be performed to enhance the overall body contour and reduce sagging skin in several areas of the body. This procedure can help a mom appear more youthful. The plastic surgeon may perform a body lift procedure in the abdominal area, groin, thighs, and hips. The condition of cellulite or dimpled skin in the thighs, hips or abdomen may also be corrected with a body lift.
