What is A Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeovers are designed to treat areas of the body after pregnancy that cannot be improved with diet and exercise. All women understand the toll pregnancy can have on the body. Breast tissue often atrophies, leaving the breasts deflated. The abdominal skin and muscles are stretched, leaving stretch marks and permanent skin excess. Fat deposits in the tummy, love handles and hips can remain even after the weight from pregnancy has been lost. Anyone who has experienced these physical changes is a candidate for a mommy makeover. It can restore your self-confidence by restoring and improving your post-pregnancy body.
Breast Lift and Augmentation
Liposuction can be effective for removal of fat from the abdomen, thighs, and love handles. Liposuction utilizes small cannulas which are passed through the fat layer and an attached suction device is used to remove the fat. Very small incisions limit scarring. Most patients return to basic home and work activities in about five days.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes the excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The procedure also helps to flatten the abdomen by tightening the surrounding muscles. In addition to the tummy tuck, liposuction is often performed to remove excess fat at the love handles and pubic area.
Lower Body Lift & Buttock Lift Options
An outer thigh and buttock lift is an option for patients with excess and saggy skin along the outer thighs and upper buttocks. Patients who have lost a marked amount of weight are often candidates for this procedure.
