At my plastic surgery practice serving Tampa, I offer a popular procedure called the mommy makeover. A Mommy makeover is designed to reduce some of the cosmetic effects of pregnancy by combining multiple plastic surgery procedures in a single treatment. Some of the combinations of techniques most frequently chosen at my practice include:
- Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck
The two biggest areas of concern for women after pregnancy are the breasts and the tummy. Breast augmentation can restore breast volume after breastfeeding and also give the breasts a curvier, shapelier appearance. A tummy tuck is used to repair diastasis, or muscle separation, and to create a flat, firm torso. A tummy tuck also removes excess skin on the abdomen for women whose skin did not “spring back” into place.
- Breast Lift With Augmentation and Liposuction
Many women develop sagging breasts after pregnancy. This is usually caused by a combination of poor skin elasticity and fluctuations in breast size. A breast lift with simultaneous breast augmentation not only gives the breasts additional fullness, but it also shifts them to a higher position.
Liposuction can also be used to remove unwanted fat from the waistline, thighs, arms, or other areas. Liposuction is a good option for women who want to remove isolated bulges of fat for a sleek and smooth body contour.
- Breast Lift with Tummy Tuck
A breast lift and a tummy tuck is a good combination for women who want to flatten their abdomen and make their breasts “perkier.” A breast lift is best for women who are happy with their breast size because no additional augmentation is performed. It helps women elevate their breast position.
Although these combinations of procedures are popular, a mommy makeover can also include facial plastic surgery or non-surgical treatments. Women can choose from face lifts, brow lifts, eyelid surgery, injectables, and much more. Deciding which treatments are right for you will depend on your personal goals.
