A Mommy Makeover combines procedures designed to restore your body after having children. Dramatic changes occur both during and after pregnancy, and many women lose confidence in their appearance. Sagging, deflated breasts and excess abdominal skin or a belly “pooch” can be addressed in a single Mommy Makeover surgery at our Latham plastic surgery practice in Albany County, NY.
Breast enhancement—a breast lift, augmentation, or reduction—along with tummy tuck and liposuction are the most common procedures included in a Mommy Makeover. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore customizes each surgical plan after consulting with the patient and performing a physcial exam.
The advantages of combining the procedures are that the recovery times are combined, the cost is less, and the entire area of the body affected by your pregnancy is improved at once. No two bodies are the same and Mommy Makeovers are highly personalized for each patient. It’s best to work together with a plastic surgeon such as Dr. Rockmore to create a custom treatment plan that achieves your goals. Discover your customized treatment plan at a private consultation.
Dr. Rockmore can place breast implants as part of a mommy makeover, or use your own tissue, to restore the volume of the breasts and to enhance their shape. This can bring back the superior volume, or fullness above the bra line, that you used to have. A lift can also be added, if necessary, to treat any sagging. If there is excess breast fat or sagging, a breast reduction surgery will help achieve a more proportional shape. Fat grafting can also be used to maintain superior fullness.
A tummy tuck tightens the underlying muscles to create a flat foundation, then tightens the overlying skin to remove the lower stretch marks and laxity. There are several kinds of tummy tucks, including mini-tummy tucks, full tummy tucks, and extended tummy tucks. Dr. Rockmore will discuss the best treatment options to fit your individual needs.
It is very common for patients to combine a brazillian butt lift with their mommy makeover. Pregnancy can impact the buttocks in a way that no amount of exercise can reverse. As a component of your MMO, a buttocks augmentation can create drastic improvements to your overall appearance.
During pregnancy, unwanted areas of fat develop around the torso that don't seem to respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove this fat and combine with the tummy tuck to bring back your curves.
A mommy makeover is done as an outpatient procedure. The amount of time for the procedure depends on the extent of the surgical options, ranging from 2 to 4 hours. It is done using general anesthesia provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Even though it is an outpatient procedure, there is some recovery time, which can range from 10 to 14 days before you are back at work.
Over time, your scars will fade and your new shape will become apparent. A mommy makeover will allow you to fit in the clothes that you used to and feel comfortable with your body again. – possibly looking the best it ever has.
