What is Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery?
Most women consider having a child the most satisfying experience of their lives. However, pregnancy can be hard on the body making some women feel self-conscious about their appearance.
The skin in the breasts, abdomen, thighs, and other regions of the body is stretched during pregnancy. This can cause post-pregnancy sagging, stretch marks, and fatty deposits.
A woman may choose to undergo a mommy makeover procedure to restore her pre-pregnancy body. The mommy makeover procedure addresses the undesirable physical impacts of pregnancy that diet and exercise alone cannot resolve.
Mommy makeovers are highly customized treatments. The surgeon will help the patient choose procedures suitable for her unique needs on the basis of her aesthetic goals, budget, medical condition, and recovery expectations. However, these procedures are not meant to produce weight loss.
After the mommy makeover surgery, the patient can expect to enjoy a slimmer, more youthful figure which is close to her pre-pregnancy physique. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kiran Gill provides mommy makeover surgery to patients in Naples, Marco Island, South Florida, and surrounding locations in the supreme Sunshine State.
The procedures included in a mommy makeover are well-suited for women who have successfully lost weight following pregnancy but have been unable to eliminate stubborn fatty deposits of fat as well as sagging skin. Patients should understand that there is no set timeline to undergo a mommy makeover procedure.
While some women receive this procedure soon after becoming a mom, others choose to wait for several years before treating themselves to a new appearance.
In case the patient feels that plastic surgery is not appropriate for her at present, she can wait until her kids are older to undergo surgery. Both women who give birth naturally and through C-section could be good candidates for this surgery.
Developing a Customized Surgery Plan
During the pre-op consultation, the patient and surgeon can determine the number and type of procedures the patient should include in her mommy makeover plan. The patient should consider multiple procedures as pregnancy and nursing cause many physical changes. These procedures may include:
- Arm lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Lower body lift
- Stretch mark reduction or elimination
- Cellulite removal
Sometimes the cosmetic surgeon may recommend an additional skin rejuvenation procedure to complete the mommy makeover.
Order of Procedures
The mommy makeover can take place at one time or in phases. A majority of surgeons choose to perform all the procedures simultaneously to minimize the recovery period. But if the patient chooses to undergo a significant number of procedures, the plastic surgeon may stagger the surgeries to minimize the patient’s discomfort as well as prevent complications.
In such cases, the patient can typically choose which surgeries they want to receive first. For instance, if a woman feels ill at ease due to excessively large breasts, she can receive a breast reduction before abdominoplasty or lower body lift.
