The Benefits of Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a customized procedure that addresses the aesthetic concerns of women after pregnancy and childbirth. Although the surgery can be tailored to each patient's exact specifications, a mommy makeover typically corrects sagging breasts and loose skin and excess fat around the abdomen. Other procedures, such as liposuction, are also commonly added to a mommy makeover. These procedures are performed in a single surgical session, enhancing the final "wow" factor.
Another benefit of the combination surgery approach is a savings of time and money. Patients appreciate that they have to take time off work only once, and they also pay certain fees, such as for anesthesiology, just once. The emotional benefits of taking care of numerous cosmetic concerns in a single operation also contribute to mommy makeover patients being among our most satisfied.
Mommy Makeover Options
Our surgeons understand that pregnancy affects each woman differently, and they recognize the importance of customizing your mommy makeover to meet your precise needs. When you pursue a mommy makeover in Long Beach, you have plenty of options for total customization. A mommy makeover typically combines body contouring with breast enhancement to redefine your natural contours and tone areas that don't respond to exercise. During your consultation, your doctor works with you to help you select a plan of action that meets your aesthetic needs and fits your lifestyle. Here are some of your options:
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can permanently alter the breasts, leaving them with a saggy or "deflated" appearance. Stretched skin and oversized areolas may leave you feeling embarrassed or self-conscious. Depending on your goals, breast enhancement can reposition, reshape, enlarge, or reduce your breasts for a perky, natural-looking silhouette that you can't wait to show off. Breast lift and breast augmentation procedures are the most popular for mommy makeover patients.
Abdominoplasty is a common component of a mommy makeover. This comprehensive procedure improves the look of the abdomen by tightening loose muscles and removing excess fat and skin. The result is a stronger, more toned midsection.
Although abdominoplasty is one of the most popular additions to a mommy makeover, many women may also benefit from some of our other body contouring options. Liposuction is a popular and effective choice for targeted fat removal in areas such as the neck, arms, and back, and thigh lift or arm lift surgery can improve the look of limbs, too.
A mommy makeover can be a great opportunity to undergo a facial procedure, too. If you've been considering rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, or another option for facial rejuvenation, you may be able to add it to your mommy makeover. Our doctors offer guidance during your decision-making process to help you understand which combination of procedures will create a beautiful, lasting, and safe result.
