Customizing Your Mommy Makeover–
A mommy makeover typically consists of three procedures:
- A tummy tuck to restore abdominal flatness and tightness,
- A breast lift and/or breast implants to raise sagging breasts and restore lost breast tissue; and;
- Liposuction to remove unwanted fat and contour the body.
However, every Mom’s post pregnancy body issues are different! At our Oakland County cosmetic surgery practice we customize each Mommy Makeover to include the specific procedures you need to get a body that looks as great (or even better!) than it did before pregnancy.
Take a look at just a few of the Mommy Makeover options we offer. Then schedule a consultation in our Oakland County office to discuss a customized Mommy Mkeover that will give you the body that you love.
Mommy Makeover: Breast Lifts and/or Breast Implants
Many moms, especially those who have breastfed their babies, lose breast volume and/or experience drooping of the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Women who have had multiple children generally notice even more dramatic breast sagging.
A breast lift tightens the breast skin, lifting up the breasts for a perkier, more youthful chest. For many women, a breast lift alone is sufficient to restore the pre-pregnancy appearance of the chest.
However, other women may experience a loss of breast tissue after childbirth. For these Mommy Makeover candidates, breast implants can be used to add volume, firmness and shape. It is also an opportunity for women who have always wanted larger breasts to go up a size or two or three!
Mommy Makeover: Types of Tummy Tucks
There are a variety of different tummy tuck procedures – including a full tummy tuck, a partial tummy tuck (dermolipectomy) an endoscopic tummy tuck, and even a “mini-tummy tuck”. Which tummy tuck procedure will be best for a woman will depend upon whether she only has loose or excess skin, just poor abdominal muscle tone, or a combination of both.
Endoscopic abdominoplasty is performed on people having weakened abdominal muscles, and excess abdominal fat, but who still have tight abdominal skin.
Dermolipectomy, is a tummy tuck in which excess skin and fat is removed and the belly button is repositioned. However, there is no muscle tightening.
A “mini-tummy tuck” also removes excess skin and fat, but does not tighten muscles, and is used when the navel does not need to be repositioned.
Full Abdominoplasty is the most extensive type of tummy tuck surgery. It is appropriate for women with very lax muscles, as well as larger amounts of excess loose skin.
Customizing Your Mommy Makeover
When you schedule a Mommy Makeover Consultation at our cosmetic surgery center, we will help you decide which procedures are right for you. Dr. Ali will listen to your appearance goals, answer your questions and thoroughly examine your skin and muscles to determine which Mommy Makeover procedures are right for you.
Busy mothers love a Mommy Makeover, because it’s “one and done” – and the recovery time for multiple procedures is condensed into one single timeframe. And “bundling” multiple cosmetic procedures into one single “Mommy Makeover” will save you a great deal of money (and time!) over scheduling each procedure separately on different days.
