What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a procedure done to restore the shape of a woman’s body after childbirth. Following pregnancy, many changes can occur to a woman’s body, specifically to the breasts, abdomen, waist, and buttocks. A mommy makeover is made up of multiple plastic surgery procedures which may include a breast augmentation, a breast lift, a tummy tuck, or liposuction.
Who is a Candidate?
Women who are in good health, are near or at their ideal body weight, and who are finished with child-bearing are good candidates for a mommy makeover. It is also important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. The best way to determine if this procedure is for your is through a consultation with Dr. Erella.
The mommy makeover is a highly personalized procedure, so no two experiences will be exactly the same. Since the mommy makeover is made up of multiple procedures, your surgery may include:
Breast Augmentation: This procedure is meant to augment the breasts using breast implants.
Breast Lift: This procedure can lift sagging breasts to a more youthful position.
Tummy Tuck: This procedure can eliminate excess skin and fat on the abdomen, as well as tighten weakened or separated abdominal muscles.
Liposuction: Liposuction can be used along with other procedures or alone to sculpt the body and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat.
Following your mommy makeover, you will need to wear support garments to help reduce swelling and support your new body contours. Dr. Erella will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, which medications to take, and when to schedule a follow-up appointment.
