What Procedures Are Included In A Mommy Makeover?

What Procedures Are Included In A Mommy Makeover?

After childbirth and breastfeeding, your body may be very different from its pre-pregnancy state. Although carrying a child is an amazing feat, the way it changes your body can cause many women to feel dissatisfied and can make them want to get their pre-pregnancy body back. Mommy makeovers can help women create their ideal silhouette and feel more comfortable with their appearance after giving birth. A Mommy Makeover isn’t just one cosmetic procedure, but rather is a customized collection of procedures that target areas that are affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Procedures That Can Be A Part Of A Mommy Makeover

Tummy Tuck
After giving birth, your stomach will likely look (and feel) much different than it did before pregnancy. You may have excess skin and weak abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can help to improve the look of your stomach by tightening loose skin while also addressing the muscles and tissues below the skin. This can help you to regain your pre-baby silhouette while also helping you feel stronger and more comfortable.

While you are pregnant, your body needs more fat than usual to help keep you and the baby healthy. After pregnancy, these fat deposits can linger and be very difficult to get rid of. Not only is your body naturally inclined to hold on to extra fat (especially if you are breastfeeding), but you may experience muscle weakness and fatigue that makes it difficult to exercise as much as you did pre-pregnancy. While liposuction isn’t meant to be used for weight loss, it can help you get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that remain after pregnancy, creating a more flattering look and helping you get closer to your pre-pregnancy body.

Breast Surgery
Mommy Makeovers include a variety of breast surgery options depending on your desired outcome. After childbirth and breastfeeding, many women find that the size, shape, and symmetry of their breasts have changed and they want to regain their previous silhouette or they want to achieve a completely different breast profile. Breast surgery options include breast reductions (reduction mammoplasty) for mothers who want smaller breasts, breast lifts (breast mastopexy) for mothers who want to restore shapeliness and symmetry, and breast implant surgery (breast augmentation) for mothers who want fuller breasts. Any of these can be performed during a Mommy Makeover, and a breast lift can be combined with either a breast reduction or breast augmentation to achieve your ideal aesthetic.

Arm Lift
Most people tend to think of the stomach or breasts as the only parts that change during pregnancy and after childbirth, but other parts of the body can also change when carrying and caring for your child. Your body needs more fat reserves during pregnancy, and this can influence your arms as well. As you breastfeed, the hormone prolactin, which increases breast size and prepares you for breastfeeding, can also increase the amount of fat and excess skin on the underside of your arms. An arm lift can tone your arms and eliminate fat and excess skin to create a taut, sleek appearance of the arms.

Q: How soon after childbirth can I have a Mommy Makeover?
A: We recommend waiting at least 6 months after having your baby to have a Mommy makeover.

A: Depending on the number of treatments you receive, Dr. Peterson will determine if your Mommy Makeover can be done in a single operation or over several surgical sessions.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
