Posted on October 5, 2021 in Mommy Makeover
Whether you’ve given birth or not, there are issues that can plague a person’s self-confidence and make them feel uncomfortable in certain clothes or doing certain activities. Issues like severe skin laxity, abdominal bulges, and drooping in formerly youthful-looking breasts can all affect a person’s self-esteem. Fortunately, all these concerns and more can be addressed in a comprehensive cosmetic surgery option: the mommy makeover.
When Would I Want a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers aren’t just for people who have gone through the joyful but physically demanding process of pregnancy and childbirth, although many of the issues people seek treatment for with a mommy makeover are related to giving birth. If you’re concerned with multiple areas of your body, such as:
- Drooping or deflated breasts
- Muscle laxity in the abdomen
- Excess skin on the abdomen
- Loose skin on the thighs or back
- Excess fat in specific places on the body
These concerns often arise as a result of aging or losing a substantial amount of weight, and cannot be helped through diet and exercise alone. Commonly, people who have lots of excess skin seek surgery to physically remove it to achieve a more smooth, defined body contour.
What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
The quick answer is that nearly any procedure can be performed as part of a mommy makeover. The idea of the mommy makeover is to address many areas and concerns at once, most commonly, the breasts and abdomen. However, other specific concerns can also be treated using plastic surgery techniques like:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast lift (and augmentation)
- Vaginal rejuvenation
Dr. Ellen encourages patients to explore all of her surgical and non-surgical treatment options to discover the procedures that would best address their concerns according to how much downtime they’re willing to have, as well as how much improvement they’re expecting.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Nearly anyone who’s in good overall health and who is at or near their ideal weight can be a candidate for this cosmetic surgery procedure. Ideal candidates have not given birth in the last six months, do not plan to have any future children, and have specific concerns with accurate expectations from surgery.
People undergoing mommy makeover surgery will need to take time off from work and childcare, and Dr. Ellen will let you know exactly how long you can expect to need for recovery.
