What is a mommy makeover?Posted on June 20, 2020
Your body can take a considerable physical toll during pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. Aging effects, gravity, and weight fluctuations over the years will also affect your skin elasticity and body contours adversely. Mommy makeover cosmetic surgery is the most comprehensive procedure that can help restore your pre-pregnancy appearance quite effectively.
A key benefit with mommy makeover surgery is that the combination of procedures can be customized to match with your unique needs and cosmetic goals as a mother. Your surgeon will evaluate your anatomical and aesthetic needs and recommend a surgical plan tailored to meet those needs. Skin tightening, fat reduction, elimination of cellulite, and stretch marks can be performed as part of mommy makeover.
Your surgeon will educate you about various procedure options and help you make informed choices. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides mommy makeover surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.
Irrespective of whether you have given a natural birth or with the help of a C-section procedure, you could be a suitable candidate for mommy makeover plastic surgery.
You should be in a good health condition in order to sustain general anesthesia and multiple surgeries that will be a part of the procedure. Also, you should not be suffering from any specific health condition that could pose a risk during your surgery or recovery.
You should have a positive mindset, clear goals about reversing the cosmetic impact of your pregnancy and keep realistic expectations from the results. Your body weight should be stable and preferably moderate. You should also have the commitment to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle to prolong the benefits of a mommy makeover.
The mommy makeover procedure is usually performed using general anesthesia. The length of procedure will depend on the number of surgical and non-surgical treatments involved and the complexity of a particular surgery. Your surgeon will aim to minimize the invasiveness of the surgery by customizing the procedures and combining them with non-invasive treatments where possible.
Some of the procedures that may be included as part of your mommy makeover according to your specific needs are listed as below:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
- Body Lift
- Cellulite Reduction
- Stretch Mark Removal
- Non-invasive procedures
Breast augmentation surgery may be recommended if you have suffered loss of volume in the breasts after pregnancy or breastfeeding. Overstretching of breasts during pregnancy may cause the skin to sag, which can be corrected with breast lift surgery.
A firmer and flatter abdomen may be restored with the help of tummy tuck surgery. Some women may gain bulk in the breast area, which can be corrected with breast reduction surgery. Liposuction is often a part of mommy makeovers to help achieve targeted fat reduction in specific areas in a less invasive manner.
Body lift surgery or non-invasive aesthetic procedures may be applied to improve cellulite and the appearance of stretch marks and scars. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA and nearby areas for mommy makeover surgery.
