What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a catchall term that can refer to a combination of multiple different procedures. Usually, a mommy makeover refers to a tummy tuck and a breast lift. However, variations can include a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, and/or liposuction. At DePerro Plastic Surgery your procedure will be tailored to your specific needs. Almost all moms say that their body never fully returns to its pre-baby form despite diet and exercise. Whether it’s a few extra pounds, sagging skin, an unsightly C-section scar, stretch marks, or deflated appearing breasts, pregnancy leaves a lasting effect on a woman’s body. Fortunately, now when a woman is done having children, plastic surgery can help her look and feel like she did before she had kids.
What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover has many benefits depending on what exactly you are aiming for. Through liposuction, a breast lift, breast augmentation, and/or a tummy tuck, you could experience any or all of these benefits:
- Shapelier and tighter waistline after “love handles” are removed
- Perkier and fuller breasts
- Improved symmetry
- Toned abdominal muscles
- Firmer and more taught skin
- Renewed self-confidence and self-image
- Healthier both physically and emotionally
Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are mothers who wish to return to their pre-baby form. If you have tried dieting and exercising and still aren’t seeing results, then Dr. DePerro may be able to help you. Women who have a few extra pounds, C-section scar, sagging skin, or drooping breasts are possible candidates. One of the biggest complaints that Dr. DePerro hears from moms is that their breasts “look like someone stuck a needle in them and popped them.” After childbirth, and especially if you breastfed, the breasts tend to appear deflated, and the nipples assume a much lower position. This common problem can be addressed with a breast lift and/or augmentation depending on if additional volume is needed. A breast lift will return the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest and improve any asymmetry. During this procedure, the size of the nipple can also be reduced if needed. If Dr. DePerro feels that the breasts are going to appear deflated after a breast lift, he’ll recommend that you also have an augmentation. An augmentation will restore any volume deficiencies and return the breasts to a more youthful, perky appearance.
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Considering that each mommy makeover is unique to each patient, a consultation with Dr. DePerro will need to be made. During the initial consultation, you and Dr. DePerro will discuss all the options available to you based on what your wants and needs are. DePerro Plastic Surgery wants to offer you personalized care for personalized results. Many moms notice that their abdominal muscles no longer appear as close to the midline as they were before they had children. They also comment that they have sagging lower abdominal skin that often worsens with additional weight loss. When Dr. DePerro performs your tummy tuck, he’ll be able to return the abdominal muscles to their natural midline position and remove any excess skin and stubborn belly fat in order to give you a more contoured midsection. If you have fat deposits laterally in the “love handles” Dr. DePerro might recommend additional liposuction. Liposuction will help remove fat deposits from specific areas and provide a tighter, shapelier waistline.
