Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover: A Plastic Surgery Trend

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), 36% of the 9.9 million surgical and minimally- invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2006 were on patients between the ages of 30 and 40; 29% of them were aged 20 to 30. Breast augmentations increased 55% from 2000 to 2006, going from 212,500 procedures to 329,326. Breast lifts -- another favourite among the mommy makeover crowd -- went up 96% during the past six years, with the total number of procedures going from 52,836 to 103,788. Tummy tucks jumped a whopping 4,384% and buttock lifts increased 174%.

A Choice to Consider

More than ever, you have exciting options to reverse the clock & those unwanted signs of child bearing. A mommy makeover isn’t a procedure itself. In fact, it’s one of many plastic surgery procedures we offer as part of our practice. Each person is unique, that’s why you must consult with a good surgeon before going forward with any procedure. Below are some of the procedures commonly involved in a mommy makeover. Each addresses different areas of the body affected by pregnancy and giving birth. Again, you may only require one or all of these procedures to restore your body’s appearance after pregnancy-

  • Breast Lift (Mastopexy) with or without Breast Augmentation
  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
  • Liposuction
Breast Augmentation

Pregnancy is a double whammy on the breasts. Not only does it lead to breast tissue atrophy, but it also leads to stretching and sagging. Breast implants can easily and safely restore volume to the breasts, but only a breast lift can correct the sagging.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Unfortunately, the breasts are not the only body part that sags after pregnancy. The abdomen is hit just as hard with stretch marks and sagging skin. When the abdominal skin is stretched to its limit over and over again through multiple pregnancies, it eventually reaches a point when it cannot bounce back (no matter how many crunches you do!).

Liposuction

Most mommies have a hard time losing the last bit of “baby weight” on their hips, arms and thighs, and liposuction can remove that stubborn fat faster than any personal trainer! It effectively removes fat that cannot be lost by diet or exercise. In addition, the fat cells that are removed are gone forever

Are you Good Candidate for Mommy-Makeover?

You may be a good candidate for Mommy-Makeover If pregnancy or childbirth have taken a toll on your breasts and midsection. You may choose to have a breast lift with or without augmentation, to lift your breasts and restore or create a voluptuous shape. When you combine this with a procedure to whittle your waist, such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with or without liposuction, this is combination of surgical procedures is called a mommy makeover. The breast surgery addresses sagging and loss of volume. The tummy tuck removes loose or sagging skin on the abdominal wall. The overall goal of a mommy makeover is lifted, full breasts and a tight abdomen. The breast lift procedure is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. Abdominoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia either within the hospital or in an outpatient setting. (Mini-abdominoplasties can be performed under sedation and local anesthesia.)
