Having a child is one of the greatest things that has ever happened to you, but also one of the worst things that has happened to your body. Although you’re thrilled to have your new little bundle of joy, you’re not very happy about your overstretched tummy, your extra body weight, and your deflated breasts. Dr. Philpott is here to help with that. Let’s go over exactly what a mommy makeover is and what’s involved in a mommy makeover that makes it such a popular procedure.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a completely customized body sculpting treatment aimed to rejuvenate a woman’s body after she’s had children. What makes a mommy makeover so personalized to your desires and needs is the fact that it’s a combination of procedures that you choose to undergo. While one person’s mommy makeover may only be two procedures like a breast lift and tummy tuck, another person’s mommy makeover may be five procedures! Undergoing multiple procedures at once during your mommy makeover cuts down on your downtime and recovery period compared to getting all these procedures done in succession.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Consist of?
Like we said before, a mommy makeover is a customized combination of rejuvenating body procedures tailored to your specific aesthetic goals. The most popular procedures to be included in a mommy makeover are:
• Breast Lift
A breast lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that does exactly what it sounds like it does – it lifts the breasts to a higher position on the chest. After pregnancy, our breasts tend to lose volume and the stretched skin makes our once perky chest droop down. A breast lift gets rid of that extra skin and tissue for a more youthful appearance. Most of the time breast implants will be recommended along with a breast lift to add volume for a “perkier” look to the breasts.
• Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a surgical cosmetic procedure that adds volume to the breasts, making them larger than prior to your procedure. While breast augmentation may help lift the breasts to a higher position on your frame, we recommend getting your augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift for ultimate results.
Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure that helps you to eliminate unwanted pockets of stubborn fat from your body. Often performed with a tummy tuck, liposuction uses a thin, hollow tube to gently suction that extra baby weight from your unwanted areas for a slimmer silhouette and overall better shape to the body.
• Tummy Tuck
Getting rid of your overstretched skin following pregnancy can be difficult. While home remedies and non-invasive treatments may help a little, we recommend considering a tummy tuck to get the fully flat tummy you’re looking for.
• Vaginal/Labia Rejuvenation
After having multiple children, many women become unhappy with the appearance of their most private areas. We believe it’s important to feel confident in every part of yourself, no matter what. We offer treatments multiple vaginal rejuvenation treatments to tighten the vaginal canal, reduce the size of your labia, eliminate excess skin and transfer fat for an overall rejuvenated look and feel.
• Body Fat Transfer
Body fat transfer is a surgical cosmetic procedure in which fat is harvested from a donor area of the body before being purified and reinjected into another area of the body. Many patients choose to have fat harvested from their midsection to produce a slimmer waistline, and have it injected into the breasts or buttocks for a natural breast augmentation or butt lift. This body fat transfer technique eliminates the need for implants for the perfect hourglass shape.
