What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures used to help restore the youthful figure of post-pregnancy patients. While some women also opt for facial rejuvenation procedures, a majority of Mommy Makeovers are focused primarily on improving the silhouette.
What Procedures are Involved?
- Breast Augmentation:Helps improve the size, shape, and position of the breasts for a feminine and more proportionate appearance.
- Breast Lift: Rejuvenates and lifts sagging breasts due to time, gravity, or following pregnancy and breast feeding.
- Tummy Tuck: Tightens the skin and muscles of the abdomen while removing excess fat.
- Mini Tummy Tuck: Tightens loose skin and excess fat below the belly button with a procedure that’s less invasive than a full tummy tuck.
- Liposuction: Removes fat deposits in different areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs.
Types of Liposuction:
- Power-assisted liposuction (PAL): Relies on a vibrating cannula tip that gently shakes fat loose and suctions it away in one step.
- Smartlipo™: Uses laser energy to break up fat cells, making them easier to remove.
- VASER®LipoSelection®: Loosens fat using ultrasonic energy as part of the liposuction procedure.
Why Consider a Mommy Makeover in San Diego?
With pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women experience unwelcome changes to their bodies, such as lost breast volume, stubborn fat deposits, sagging skin, and stretched abdominal muscles. While specific areas of the body can be treated one at a time, such as with a tummy tuck there is a way to achieve more comprehensive body rejuvenation.
What Should I Expect from My Mommy Makeover Procedure?
Some women find that diet and exercise aren’t enough to return their bodies to its pre-baby shape. Procedures like liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation and others are helpful for our mothers who want to regain their figures and restore their bodies to what they once were – if not better.
