If you’re a mom and you’re unhappy about the way your body appears after childbirth, you can visit UCI Plastic Surgery to discuss the mommy makeover.
Reasons to Choose a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is designed to address unwanted changes that occur after women have children. These common conditions are troubling for many mothers. Fortunately, there are procedures that may help you get your pre-baby body back.
Mommy makeovers address cosmetic concerns such as:
- Protruding tummy
- Sagging breasts or lost breast volume
- Localized areas of body fat
We can help you determine the best surgical procedures for your mommy makeover. During your consultation, we can also help you plan the appropriate timing for each procedure, whether they are staggered or performed in a single operation.
FAQ About Mommy Makeover
The following are some of the common questions asked about cosmetic surgery after pregnancy. If you have a different question, please contact the office of Costa Mesa’s UCI Plastic Surgery.
Which procedures are part of the mommy makeover?
All mommy makeovers are customized for the individual. However, the most common procedures to combine are breast augmentation/lift and tummy tuck.
How does breast augmentation address post-baby body issues?
Mothers often see their breast volume diminish or their youthful breast position decline after pregnancy. To restore volume, breast augmentation can be performed using saline or silicone filled breast implants. In some cases, a breast lift may also be recommended. To elevate sagging breasts, loose skin and glandular tissue is removed and the nipple is repositioned.
Why is tummy tuck part of the mommy makeover?
Pregnancy can stretch both the skin and the abdominal muscles, leading to a protruding abdomen. To address this problem, a tummy tuck can remove excess fat and skin and also repair the weakened or separated muscles. The result is a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.
Is liposuction necessary during the mommy makeover?
Weight fluctuations can lead to small areas of stubborn fat. Liposuction is a technique for reducing these persistent fat deposits when physical exercise and a healthy diet do not get results. Good candidates are relatively young and have a stable, healthy body weight.
