What is a “Mommy Makeover?”

A Mommy Makeover is a term used to describe a surgical procedure that can help women who want to improve the appearance of their breasts and abdomen after pregnancy.

The procedure can also help women who have lost weight and want to improve their overall appearance by contouring their abdominal area, as well as lifting and reshaping the breasts.

A mommy makeover can include liposuction, breast augmentation surgery or breast augmentation with fat transfer (also known as “gummy bear” implants), tummy tuck surgery, removal of excess skin in the upper arms (brachioplasty), liposuction in front of the lower abdomen (vaser lipo) and arm lift surgery.

What is a Breast Augmentation?

Most women who undergo breast augmentation surgery want to increase the size, shape, or both of their breasts. Breast implants are made of silicone or saline (a salt water solution).

Breast implant surgery is performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia with a board-certified plastic surgeon. The procedure usually takes 1-2 hours and requires a hospital stay that can range from 2 to 3 nights depending on individual circumstances.

A drain may be placed during surgery to assist with fluid removal after surgery. Most patients return home within 24 hours after breast augmentation surgery; however, it may take up to 10 days before you feel completely recovered from your procedure

Breast Augmentation

There are many types of breast implants available to choose from, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Saline implants can be filled with saline solution after being placed in the body. Silicone implants are more permanent since they are a solid mass that cannot be removed once implanted in your body.

Breast augmentation surgery can be performed under the muscle or over the muscle (submuscular). If you choose submuscular placement, your plastic surgeon will place the implant under your pectoral muscles and then close the incision at this point on each side of your chest wall.

This method is recommended for those who want their breasts to appear larger than they actually are but still want an athletic look because there is less risk of capsular contracture (when scar tissue forms around an implant).

Breast Reduction

For women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts, breast reduction surgery can reduce the size of your breasts and make them more proportionate to your body. Breast reduction is not for everyone, so it's important that you consider all factors before deciding whether this procedure is right for you.

If you have large breasts (cup size C or larger), it can be difficult to find bras that fit properly, or clothes that fit well over your chest area. Having large breasts may also cause back pain due to the weight of heavy breasts pulling down on your shoulders.

Additionally, people tend to stare at large breasts as opposed to smaller ones—which can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness about how others perceive you. If any of these problems sound familiar, then this may be a good option for you!

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery is a popular procedure that can help improve the appearance of your breasts. This procedure can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with other procedures, such as breast augmentation and/or reduction.

Breast lift surgery is usually done under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during the operation. Depending on how extensive your surgery is, you may spend two days to three days in the hospital before going home.

You will need someone to drive you home from the hospital after surgery and care for you at home until your follow-up appointment with Dr. Martin takes place 1 week after surgery.

If you are planning on having breast lift surgery, make sure to discuss all aspects of this procedure with Dr. Martin ahead of time so that he can provide all necessary information regarding recovery time and costs associated with this particular type of plastic surgery procedure!

Breast Augmentation with Lift

  • Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that adds volume to the breasts. It is performed by injecting breast implants beneath the breast tissue, which can increase cup size or restore an aging or sagging appearance.
  • Breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to raise and reshape the breasts of women who have lost volume from pregnancy, weight loss or breastfeeding. The result is firmer, more youthful looking breasts with a higher degree of symmetry than before.* Both procedures are typically performed at the same time as part of a mommy makeover (mommy reconstruction).

Can You Have Breast Surgery and Liposuction at the Same Time?

You can have breast surgery and liposuction done at the same time, as well as breast augmentation and liposuction, breast reduction and liposuction, and breast lift with liposuction. However, you should wait at least 6 weeks between these procedures for optimal results.

Who is Qualified for a Mommy Makeover?

To be a candidate for a mommy makeover, you must:

  • Be healthy and have realistic expectations. It's important to know that your results will not look like those of celebrities who appear in magazines or on television. You also need to be realistic about the types of procedures that are available to you and what they'll do for you.
  • Be at least 18 years old. Most physicians require patients to be 18 years old before they can undergo cosmetic surgery procedures such as those provided by mommy makeovers (although it's always best to ask your own doctor).
  • Be in good health and able to participate in all aspects of your procedure with little or no medical issues or complications (including psychological ones). Some types of surgeries may require clearance from other physicians prior to being performed; ask your plastic surgeon about this requirement if applicable for you—it may save time during the preoperative visit process!

If these requirements sound like something that might apply specifically towards women who've given birth recently (i.e., "post-pregnancy"), then keep reading! We'll cover more details later on how exactly these guidelines affect men too!

Benefits of the Mommy Makeover

The best part of the Mommy Makeover is that you can get your pre-baby body back. You will be able to feel better about yourself and regain the confidence that you had before pregnancy.

You will also be able to wear clothes that you like again, which is something we all want to do after having children! The surgery will improve your self-esteem as well because you will feel more beautiful and confident than ever before.

Preparation for Your Mommy Makeover Procedure

  • Consult with your doctor about your health, medications, and allergies.
  • Discuss your expectations. How are you feeling about the surgery? Do you have any concerns or fears?
  • Discuss the risks of the procedure. What are the potential side effects or complications that could occur from having this procedure done? Are these risks worth it to you if they occur in exchange for a healthier body image?
  • Discuss the costs of Mommy Makeover procedures with your doctor in advance so there are no surprises later on down the road when bills start coming in!

After Your Procedure

After your procedure, you will be required to wear a compression garment for as long as necessary. This can range anywhere from 6 weeks to several months depending on the type of surgery performed and your body’s reaction to it.

It’s natural that you might experience some soreness after any type of surgery, but there are ways you can help speed up your recovery process. Take care of yourself in the following ways:

  • Rest as much as possible during the first 48 hours
  • Take Tylenol or Advil for pain relief before going to bed at night and upon waking in the morning (no more than 4 per day)
  • Avoid strenuous activity for at least 2 weeks following your procedure

Breast Implant Illness

Silicone breast implants are actually more likely to rupture than saline filled implants but silicone gel filled implants is just as likely to leak as saline breast implants.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure designed to improve the appearance and function of the vagina. It's usually performed on women who have had children and are experiencing some vaginal laxity (looseness), which can lead to a variety of symptoms, including stress urinary incontinence (SUI), vaginal prolapse, and dryness during sexual intercourse.

A surgical technique called vaginoplasty can be used to tighten up your vaginal tissue through excision or reconstruction.

Vaginoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia by an experienced plastic surgeon with extensive experience in this type of procedure.

The length of time you’ll need to recover from vaginoplasty will depend on what kind of surgery was done, but most patients return home within 24 hours after their procedure has been completed.

After recovering from surgery, most patients report feeling like new again! Not only do they experience increased comfort during sex (or lack thereof) but they'll also see improvements in urinary control as well as better overall quality-of-life issues like incontinence issues related to sitting down too long at work or standing up too often while playing sports with kids - whatever the case may be!

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck involves removing excess skin and fat to help create a flatter abdomen. The procedure may also be performed to tighten the muscles of your stomach as well as remove any stretch marks you have on your lower abdominal area.

As with other procedures, there are several different ways that a tummy tuck can be done:

  • Open incision method – This method uses an incision (cut) along the lower abdomen that goes from hip bone to hip bone and down into the pubic area. It will typically take six weeks for you to heal after having this type of surgery because it involves more tissue being removed than other methods.
  • Mini-incision method – In this technique, there are three small incisions made in order to access each side of your abdominal area: one at each side near where your waistband would sit and another on your lower belly button. Because these cuts are smaller than those used in open procedures, they heal faster—usually within two weeks!
  • Endoscopic procedure – This type of operation uses only one small cut but has several steps involved before reaching its goal: creating an additional opening around your navel through which instruments can safely pass as well as creating new openings through which fat is removed via liposuction techniques

A Mommy Makeover is an excellent way to reclaim your pre-baby body.

A Mommy Makeover is an excellent way to reclaim your pre-baby body.

Here’s how it works:

  • Breast augmentation—a breast augmentation, which is performed alone or in conjunction with a tummy tuck or liposuction, can increase the size of your breasts and give them a more youthful appearance.
  • Tummy tuck—a tummy tuck tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess skin after pregnancy. This procedure can also rid you of stretch marks if they are not too severe.
  • Liposuction—liposuction reduces fat beneath the skin’s surface by using a tube with an attached vacuum that sucks out the unwanted fat cells through small incisions made in the abdomen area, hips and thighs (love handles). The procedure can also be used to contour arms and legs for a slimmer look overall.
