What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is an all-inclusive combination of services to help you to get your pre-baby body back. This package includes four different procedures to restore your breasts, body and vaginal area to a more youthful tightness and appearance.
What All Does a Mommy Makeover Include? – Why We Chose These Procedures
Growing a human inside you for nine months can lead to major changes in how your body looks. While new moms love their babies, they may not like their new bodies. Plus, the time dedicated to caring for your newborn makes finding time to exercise and diet properly difficult.
These issues are some of the reasons that a Mommy Makeover is one of our most popular options. We chose the Mommy Makeover package’s exact components to address the most pressing concerns that new moms have with their bodies and restore their appearance to their pre-baby days.
For instance, pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to droop, the stomach to have stretch marks and excessive skin, unwanted fat deposits around the body to appear, and the vaginal area to experience dryness. A Mommy Makeover corrects each of these with various surgical and non-surgical procedures. Included in a Mommy Makeover are the following:
- Breast augmentation and/or breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Vaginal rejuvenation
Mommy Makeover Patient Results
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Drooping breasts may also lose volume. Therefore, to make them appear more youthful, you may need both a breast augmentation and a lift. Augmentation adds implants to your breasts to improve their shape and volume. A lift brings them back to their pre-pregnancy position.
When you have a breast procedure as part of the Mommy Makeover, the surgeon will look at your breasts’ current shape and position and inform you of the best way to get them to look more youthful. Not everyone will require augmentation and a lift. Some may only need one or the other. If you have specific concerns about your breasts, feel free to discuss those with the surgeon during the consultation to ensure that you get your desired results.
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
Many women report losing weight from their pregnancy but still having problem areas, especially around the abdomen. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a popular procedure that helps remove fat and extra skin from this area to improve your appearance and a healthy diet and fitness regime.
When the abdomen stretches during pregnancy, the muscles may not return to their prenatal positions. A tummy tuck can tighten these muscles and get rid of extra skin that grew to accommodate your growing self.
What Is Liposuction?
While a tummy tuck can tighten muscles and get rid of extra skin, liposuction can remove stubborn fat from your body that post-delivery exercise can’t seem to get rid of. Common locations targeted by this procedure include the hips, thighs, abdomen, upper arms, and neck. However, don’t think of liposuction as your means of losing the baby weight. In fact, liposuction contours your body while you eat healthfully and exercise to reduce overall fat in your body naturally.
There are three main types of liposuction that we offer at Charlotte Plastic Surgery:
- Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)
- Suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL)
- Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL)
With these three options, our surgeons have choices for finding the best way to break up and remove fat from areas of your body. Each method has its own benefits. For instance, UAL works better for especially stubborn fat in fibrous locations. SAL is the most traditional version of liposuction, while PAL is the most cutting-edge. Our surgeons will only use proven methods to get the best results for your case.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Changes in hormones and the physical effects of childbirth can have consequences on the structure and health of the vagina. For instance, some women may have dryness or no longer be able to orgasm after a baby. Others have problems with urinary incontinence or have concerns about having excess skin on their labia.
Vaginal rejuvenation includes surgical and non-surgical options to correct these problems and others. The non-surgical option is ThermiVa, which uses heat and radio waves to provide treatment of the area.
A surgical procedure called a labiaplasty removes excessive skin. This procedure can make your labia minora smaller.
Should You Have a Mommy Makeover?
While the Mommy Makeover can drastically change your appearance, you may want to reconsider this option if you plan to have additional children in the future. The Mommy Makeover will not prevent future changes to your body caused by more pregnancies. Having another child could reverse the changes the Mommy Makeover brought. Therefore, if you have chosen to end your childbearing years, you will get the best, longest-lasting results from this package.
