What is a Mommy Make Over?
Some women may experience severe changes in their bodies after pregnancy. Abdominal muscle can be lost and pregnant women may also have excess in abdominal skin. Gaining weight, stretch marks and saggy breasts are also the result of pregnancy. Achieving the ideal shape is now possible with the Mommy Makeover. This is a combination of a Tummy Tuck and a Breast Augmentation procedure, which can help these women get amazing results.
The Mommy Make over involves different types of plastic surgeries:
Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)
The abdominoplasty procedure involves the removal of fat and of skin as well, in addition to the tightening of abdominal muscles. This procedure is indicated for patients whose skin stretches beyond its elasticity. A protruding abdomen, disproportioned with the rest of the body, can be corrected with a tummy tuck procedure. This procedure facilitates the tightening of underlying stomach muscles, which have loosened, weakened or separated over time. It also aids in the flattening and reshaping of the abdomen. Stretch marks can also be improved with this procedure, especially those below the navel.
Breast Augmentation and/or Lift
Another typical procedure for the Mommy Makeover is correcting the breasts. While some moms can get an acceptable cosmetic result from augmentation alone or from a breast lift (mastopexy) alone, many moms who have a combination of breast volume loss and excess skin will require both, a breast augmentation and a breast lift.
The Breast Augmentation surgery or augmentation mammoplasty is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness, restore volume and improve symmetry of the breasts.
The implants are positioned either in the middle of the breast tissue and the pectorals, underneath the fascia, or the pectoral muscle’s fibrous tissue, or below the pectoral muscle.
Breast Lift surgery raises and makes breasts firmer. It removes excess breast skin, in addition to tightening the tissue to adapt to the breast’s new shape. this procedure involves the removal or replacement of the nipple-areola. The procedure does not affect the breast’s sensitivity and it also does not increase the chances of getting breast cancer. During surgery, the surgeon removes the excess tissues and overstretched ligaments and moves the areola higher to decrease its size.
Liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat underneath the skin through suctioning. This procedure focuses more on the body’s regular shape. A suctioning tool or aspirator and a cannula are used to remove fat, and several other techniques are also employed. This procedure can also be used for the treatment of pockets on several parts of the body such as the arms, waist, abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and legs.

Advantages of Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover can help improve or restore the patient’s figure in as little as one day. This procedure will only require a brief recovery time. Breast and tummy makeovers can be combined and performed. Recovery time is generally about 10 days to two weeks long.
