Take a look at the list below and then schedule a mommy makeover consultation in our Troy, MI area office with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali to discuss your personalized mommy makeover!
□ Mommy Makeover Breast Lift (implants optional)
Breasts expand dramatically during pregnancy and afterwards during nursing, often causing a woman to go up several bra sizes, only to drop back down once the baby finishing breastfeeding. With all of this skin stretching, many women are often left with saggy breasts and loose breast skin or tissue.
A surgical breast lift will “tone and tighten” the breasts, restoring them to a higher natural-looking position. And lose skin can be removed for a firm, attractive bustline. After breastfeeding is complete, a combined breast lift and and implants can also be ideal.
Adding implants during a mommy makeover can be a great opportunity for women who were never satisfied with their breast size to begingo up a few sizes for better breast shape and fullness.
□ Mommy Makeover Liposuction
That “baby weight” added during pregnancy can be so tough to lose. And, while childbirth is a miracle and a blessing, it’s very common for pregnancy hormones to cause deposits of fat to start accumulating in strange new places on the body. Sadly, this fat can be very stubborn and often simply does not respond to dieting or even exercise. Some mommies may even return to their ideal pre-baby weight only to discover that it is now distributed differently – with a new “muffin top” or jiggly belly that won’t go away.
Mommy makeover liposuction(“lipo”) remedies this problem by permanently removing unwanted fat from the belly, the “love handles” or almost anywhere else on the body fat is found.
During l”lipo” unwanted fat is sucked out of the body through a tiny tube (cannula) in a minimally-invasive procedure. Once the fat cells are removed they will never come back in that area.
□ Mommy Makeover Tummy Tuck
Sometimes simply getting rid of the fat isn’t quite enough to restore you to pre-pregnancy proportions. In addition to fat gain, pregnancy can also result in loose, sagging skin and abdominal muscles. And all the exercise in the world simply won’t remedy hanging skin or damaged, torn muscles.
However, tummy tuck surgery, can remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal area, torn or damaged muscles can also be repaired if necessary. And, as an added bonus, the mommy makeover tummy tuck skin tightening and removal process can also get rid of stretch marks from pregnancy.
□ Mommy Makeover Mini Tummy Tuck
Woman with just loose skin, but no abdominal muscle stretching or damage, may only need a “mini” tummy tuck. This less invasive surgery can be an excellent mommy makeover option, as it offers minimal scarring and a much shorter recovery period.
□ Mommy Makeover Labiaplasty
Though many women are embarrassed to discuss this fact, a woman’s labia often stretches during childbirth. This can result in the “flaps” or “wings” of the labia minora to protrude out past the labia majora. This make a woman feel less sexually attractive, and can also be quite uncomfortable, as the “wings” rub and chaffe. But, labiaplasty can be performed as part of your mommy makeover to remove the excess skin for a more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable labia.
