Dr. Kiran Gill is proud to help patients in Naples & Fort Myers, FL, revitalize their physique after pregnancy with transformative Mommy Makeover surgery. With motherhood comes tremendous pride and joy, and the profound reward of creating human life. Unfortunately, there is also a downside, which often includes a loss of physical attractiveness as the body struggles to adapt. Moms may long for their pre-pregnancy body and feel a loss of self-confidence in how they look.
As a woman, no one understands this predicament better than Dr. Gill. She is highly sensitive to her female clients’ frustration as they find that dieting and exercise just doesn’t produce the desired improvements. As a board-certified plastic surgeon who has distinguished herself in the field of body sculpting, Dr. Gill prides herself on delivering among the best Mommy Makeovers and can create a highly customized, strategic plan for rejuvenating your physique and restoring a sense of well-being and aesthetic harmony.
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to address the physical changes that many women experience after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. These cosmetic surgery procedures are typically aimed at restoring or enhancing the appearance of areas of the body that may undergo significant changes during and after pregnancy.
Dr. Gill’s Mommy Makeover procedures take place in our Naples Surgery Center and typically include liposuction to trim and tone the torso; breast surgery to reshape and restore the breast profile; a tummy tuck to tighten the stomach muscles and slim the waist; a labiaplasty to contour the vaginal region; and facial rejuvenation with injectables to offset stress-related wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds. A Mommy Makeover is tailored to your needs and wishes, however, so you will be able to select the treatments that make the most sense for your body.
The only way to tell for sure if you are a good candidate for Dr. Gill's Mommy Makeover is to schedule a confidential consultation with her in the privacy of her office. She will be able to evaluate your situation best in person, although virtual consultations are also available.
In general, Dr. Gill suggests that clients:
A tummy tuck can remove loose skin in the midsection and help tighten and tone stomach muscles that have been stretched out of shape by pregnancy. While exercise may help improve one’s mood, it can’t do much for revitalizing the six-pack muscles, which will only respond to a surgical intervention.
Pregnancy takes a huge toll on the breasts, distorting their shape and position. Dr. Gill can perform a breast lift to elevate drooping breasts with low-hanging areolas and nipples. She can also enhance breast volume by performing either a breast augmentation with breast implants to restore fullness to deflated breasts, or a breast reduction procedure for those who suffer from an excess of fat, skin and tissues in the breast mounds.
Liposuction is one of the world’s oldest and most popular cosmetic procedures. It is used to trim, slim and streamline the waist, hips, stomach, thighs, chest, back, double chin, buttocks and arms.
Pregnancy can truly distort both the form and function of the vaginal walls, reducing sexual satisfaction and sometimes even causing pain and discomfort. A labiaplasty can be performed to reshape the labia and tighten the skin for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Dr. Gill uses BOTOX, Juvederm, Sculptra and other injectables to non-surgically fight the signs of stress and aging. Wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds can all be reversed, providing you with a smoother, more youthful countenance. Facelift is an option for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Gill's body lift can be performed to help rid the body of excess sagging skin. During this treatment, the entire lower torso is addressed for comprehensive aesthetic improvement.
Mommy Makeover surgery is typically an outpatient procedure that involves a customized combination of cosmetic procedures tailored to each patient’s post-pregnancy needs. Performed under general anesthesia, the surgery will include whichever techniques have been previously outlined in your surgical plan, and strategically placed incisions to minimize scarring. Dr. Gill will address breast shape and abdominal concerns, remove excess skin, and may tighten muscles. The surgeon will also address vaginal and facial concerns as necessary before closing the incisions and moving you into the recovery room where you’ll stay for several hours after your procedure.
After suturing incisions, you’ll recover with compression garments and should plan to follow all of Dr. Gill’s postoperative instructions for optimal healing. Recovery time varies depending on the procedures performed, but you should typically expect several weeks of limited activity and time off work. Full recovery may take a few months. Your results will be immediately evident and will continue improving as swelling subsides. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Gill will be scheduled to ensure proper recovery progress.
Mommy Makeover surgery typically includes one or more body contouring procedure such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and liposuction, as well as vaginal and facial rejuvenation procedures. The specific procedures included will vary based on your individual goals and needs.
Dr. Gill generally recommends waiting until you've completed all planned pregnancies and have reached a stable weight before considering a Mommy Makeover.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, anesthesia complications, and dissatisfaction with results.1 Dr. Gill will discuss these risks during your consultation.
Scarring is a natural part of any surgery.2 Skilled surgeons strive to minimize scarring and often place incisions strategically to be concealed by clothing or natural body contours.
Results are long-lasting, but factors like weight fluctuations, future pregnancies, and natural aging can affect the outcome over time.
If you were able to breastfeed prior to breast surgery, you should be able to breastfeed after the procedure. However, there is still a possibility that some women may experience difficulty breastfeeding after certain procedures like breast augmentation, lift, or reduction.3 That’s just one of the reasons why Dr. Gill recommends waiting until you are done having children to undergo Mommy Makeover surgery.
Generally, cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance unless they are deemed medically necessary. Mommy Makeover surgeries are usually considered elective and are not covered.
