Before proceeding with plastic surgery, it is important to understand the scope and long-term expectations of the procedure you are considering. People with different issues and goals need to consider these details when making a final decision about whether to have a mommy makeover.
This general term refers to a combination of procedures that address both the abdomen and the breasts. It’s named this because women often elect to undergo these combined surgeries after pregnancy. It is common for women to notice a combination of deflation and sagging in the breasts and a bulging abdomen after pregnancy.
A Mommy Makeover targets specific areas of concern that require multiple procedures during surgery.
Liposuction is recommended for fat deposits that are collected during pregnancy. The most common areas are the thighs, abdomen and hip area. Liposuction removes these fatty pockets; however it is not a weight loss method.
Abdominoplasty is a procedure that removes the excess skin that has stretched out from pregnancy. The abdominal muscles can also be tightened at this time to reduce the lower abdomen bulge.
Breast Augmentation will add volume using a saline or silicone implant. In some cases, a Breast Lift Augmentation may be required in order to lift the sagging breast skin and add volume to the breast.
Once the healing is done, you will feel more confident. Visit one of the three physicians with Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic to receive a comprehensive consultation regarding your personal needs and the best way to implement desired changes.
