Mommy makeover procedures typically involve a number of procedures, either performed together in one operation, or over a series of appointments. Mommy Makeover candidates typically include mothers who are experiencing:
- Extra skin and fat in the breasts causing a sagging or drooping appearance
- Excess fat and skin in the abdominal region
- Stubborn fat deposits in virtually any area of the body
- Areas of stretch marks
One of our LIPSG plastic surgeons will meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss Mommy Makeover options that can help you achieve your goals. Please contact the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group for an appointment.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
A Mommy Makeover is designed to address a number of aesthetic issues you may be having after childbirth. Procedures that can be part of a Mommy Makeover include:
Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat pockets that have accumulated during or after pregnancy. These fat pockets can be removed from virtually anywhere on the body for a more contoured, fit aesthetic. LIPSG uses advanced liposuction techniques that have proven safe and effective at getting rid of excess fat and restoring your natural curves.
One of the most noticeable effects of pregnancy is droopiness and extra skin in the breasts. This can also become more pronounced after breast-feeding. A breast lift as part of a Mommy Makeover procedure addresses sagginess in the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the skin of the breast area, lifting the breasts to a higher position for a more youthful, “perky” appearance.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
After pregnancy, the breasts can lose volume and appear smaller. Along with a breast lift, our plastic surgeons can also place silicone or saline breast implants to give you a fuller bustline that’s more proportionate to your body frame. This popular plastic surgery procedure is an ideal part of a Mommy Makeover for women who would like to restore lost volume in the breasts for a more curvaceous, sensual appearance.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) targets the most obvious area of physical change in a new mom: the stomach region. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are often pushed apart and stretched, making it extremely difficult to restore the mid-section to its pre-pregnancy appearance. A tummy tuck tightens the stomach muscles and pulls the remaining skin taut for a flatter, firmer appearance.
Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
A number of injectable facial rejuvenation options at LIPSG can do wonders for eliminating the appearance of exhaustion and aging that can afflict new mothers. BOTOX Cosmetic can significantly reduce wrinkling and creases in the forehead and other areas of the face, and dermal fillers such as Restylane and JUVEDERM can fill in lines and wrinkles as well as plump up the lips and cheeks for a more youthful aesthetic.
Some procedures in a Mommy Makeover can be combined into one operation. Your LIPSG plastic surgeon will discuss each procedure with you at your initial consultation and determine if your individual needs can best be met with a combination of procedures at one time, or spread out over a series of appointments.
A Mommy Makeover can be performed at one of our two new, state-of-the-art operating rooms at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group’s Garden City facility. The new operatories are fully equipped and have been certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). This certification signifies that facilities adhere to the highest standards of care.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Recovery from Mommy Makeover procedures will depend on the type and extent of the procedures undergone, as well as whether they were performed in tandem or over a period of months. Patients can typically expect anywhere from one to three weeks or more of recovery from the most invasive procedures, and a much shorter period for procedures such as injectable treatment.
Mommy Makeover Risks
One of our doctors here at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group will go over the specific risks and benefits to the procedures you ultimately decide upon at your initial consultation. Our doctors are highly-trained and experienced with a variety of procedures, and every precaution will be taken to ensure a safe procedure and recovery process with minimal risk of complications.
