After pregnancy, many women find themselves struggling with changes to parts of their body, like the abdomen or breasts, that they may be uncomfortable with. While diet and exercise may help some patients, others may require surgical treatment to address these concerns. Mommy Makeover surgery combines multiple procedures to help women regain a youthful figure.
What Are the Benefits of Mommy Makeover?
What Are My Procedure Options?
Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery can address sagging and lift the breasts to a more youthful and attractive position on the chest. This procedure can also correct nipples that point downward and enlarged areolas. Breast lift surgery is commonly performed alongside breast augmentation to enhance a patient’s bust.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that tightens weak abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and stubborn fat from the midsection to produce a toned and slender look. This procedure can also eliminate the appearance of stretch marks on the lower abdomen (when excess skin is removed).
Liposuction can remove residual fat deposits from several areas of the body to create a firm and slim appearance. These areas include:
Following your Mommy Makeover surgery, you will be asked to wear a compression garment to support your new contours and minimize swelling. Swelling and bruising will occur but should subside after a few weeks. Make sure to avoid strenuous activities for at least six weeks. You should be able to return to work a few weeks after your procedure.
Mommy Makeover surgery will leave you with a toned, slender, and rejuvenated body that will make you look and feel beautiful.
Scarring will depend on the number of procedures performed during your Mommy Makeover surgery. Any visible scars can be hidden underneath clothing and will likely fade over time.
The cost of your Mommy Makeover surgery may vary based on certain factors such as surgical fees, techniques, and the number of procedures performed. Dr. Henry will provide you with an accurate price sheet during your consultation.
