Reverse the effects of childbearing with a mommy makeover in Tallahassee. This cosmetic procedure is a combination of several procedures which aim to give you a more toned appearance. Mommy makeover surgery brings back your body’s pre-pregnancy form so you can enjoy motherhood on another level.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
In Tallahassee, mommy makeover procedures help women reclaim their body from the effects of pregnancy. The Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic offers three procedures that, when combined, address the common problems of post-pregnancy.
If the phrase “mommy makeover” piqued your interest, then you no doubt are familiar with the sagging breasts that sometimes lose or gain volume, the stubborn layer of fat in your arms, buttocks or abdomen and the sagging tummy skin after being stretched to extremes.
You love your children and their births were wonderful, but the actual being pregnant part played a toll on your body. The excess skin or sagging areas may affect your self image.
The more common areas that fat deposits collect during pregnancy are the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and hip area. No matter how much you work out or diet, it is a challenge to get back to your pre-baby weight. Liposuction is a permanent way to spot and remove these fatty pockets. It is not a weight loss method.
Also known as the tummy tuck, this procedure removes the excess skin that has stretched out from a large pregnancy or multiple ones. The abdominal muscles can also be tightened at this time to reduce the lower abdomen bulge. It can also remove some stretch marks.
Your breasts gain volume as your belly grows and then, they are responsible for feeding the baby over the next several months. The extra weight makes them sag and as they slowly lose the extra volume, they start to resemble deflated balloons. Breast augmentation adds volume and lift using saline or silicone implants. Sometimes it is also necessary to perform a breast lift if the sagging is severe.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
You are a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you are done with bearing children; future pregnancies can negatively affect the results of the procedure. You have to be in good overall health and at or near your ideal body weight.
If you are concerned with unwanted fat or sagging skin on areas of your body, then you may undergo this cosmetic procedure. Having realistic expectations and goals is very important.
Your consultation for your mommy makeover may begin with a discussion of your cosmetic goals and concerns. Then a physical examination will be conducted to check your areas of concern. This will help in formulating the right combination of procedures to achieve your desired outcome.
Your combination of cosmetic procedures will be recommended by our surgeon during your consultation. It may include liposuction, tummy tuck, and/or breast augmentation.
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
At the start of the procedure, general anesthesia will be administered. This will ensure a comfortable and painless surgical session.
Incisions will then be made on the target areas. Extra tissue may be removed or sucked out where necessary. For breast augmentation, implants may be placed to increase your bust size or volume.
Healing and Recovery
Depending on the procedures done, recovery and downtime may vary from a few weeks to a few months. Once the healing is done, you can wear clothes you would have never put on before, maybe even a bikini!
Cost of Mommy Makeover Surgery
The cost of your mommy makeover will depend on several factors. The total price will reflect the number of procedures performed, surgical fees, and other expenses.
