Mommy Makeover

The term “Mommy makeover” refers to a combination of aesthetic procedures that aim to help you get back your before-pregnancy appearance.

 

Is a Mommy Makeover For You?

This procedure is designed to reverse the effect that pregnancy and ageing have on your physical appearance. If you are unhappy about how your breasts look after giving birth if stretch marks and stubborn belly fat and loss of skin elasticity resist your dieting and exercise efforts you may want to consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss your options. The other valid reason for a mommy makeover could be if it is important for you to gain your pre-pregnancy appearance back fast in order to participate in family and other activities sooner or to fit back into your pre-pregnancy clothing.

What can you expect?

Mommy makeovers are designed to refresh and renew your body but it involves a number of surgical procedures so it is important that you are in good general health. Your plastic surgeon can help you find the ideal combination of surgeries to suit your needs. You can expect to have more youthful breasts and tummy after the makeover but it is important to be realistic about your goals. You also need to consider that another pregnancy or significant weight gain after the procedures might compromise the results so it is best to consider a makeover when you do not plan to have any further children.

More information on the procedures that can be included in a makeover

Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty

It is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen between your belly button and bikini line. It also involves tightening the abdominal muscles (rectus muscles) and the overlying connective tissues (fascia) which are stretched during pregnancy. This improves the contour and function of the abdomen. It is best to consider this surgery when you plan no more children and your weight has stabilised. Patients may be suitable for either a mini or full tummy tuck

Breast Lift or Mastopexy

A breast lift treats sagging, limp or uneven breasts, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas, returning a firm appearance and volume to your breasts. Women who desire larger, smaller, or more rounded breasts may want to consider a breast augmentation or breast reduction along with the breast lift. It involves the repositioning and reshaping of the breast tissue and removal of the excess skin as well as the repositioning of the areola.

Breast augmentation

Breast feeding can have a different impact on the breasts. Some women will lose volume, giving breasts a deflated, smaller appearance. Breast augmentation restores and increases size through the use of implants. The surgeon will make an incision and place the implant either under or on top of the pectoral muscle, depending on certain factors such as cleavage and natural feel.

Breast reduction

During pregnancy, your breasts usually increase in volume which might or might not change during the breastfeeding period. If your breasts remain disproportionally large causing you back pain or other problems you might consider a breast reduction procedure. Your surgeon will determine whether it’s enough to remove the excess fat or some of the skin needs to be removed as well and perform the most effective operation accordingly. This can be a surgical procedure, liposuction or a combination of the two.

Liposuction

The hormonal changes associated with pregnancy can cause the storage of excess fat on the waist, hips, legs or arms. While a tummy tuck will help narrow your waist, the removal of fat from the other areas require liposuction. It is recommended to have these procedures done at the same time as it reduces recovery time and helps to achieve the desired reshaping of all the affected areas.

 

Naturally, there are variations to a Mommy Makeover in each patient, especially in the options to achieve a fuller breast shape and size.
