Your body can transform remarkably with a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover is customized to each patient but usually includes treatments for the breasts and the abdominal area. It is an individualized set of aesthetic procedures to help improve your body outline after pregnancy. The techniques can reconstruct your body to more align with its pre-pregnancy shape.
If you are not satisfied with how your post-pregnancy body looks after exercise and diet, a mommy makeover can help. Your board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa can help determine the ideal procedures for you. Here is how you can transform your body with a mommy makeover.
Breast augmentation adds volume to breasts to improve their natural symmetry. Patients sometimes refer to the procedure as a boob job. It uses fat transfer or breast implants to increase your breast size and improve shape.
Breast augmentation helps restore breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy. But the procedure may not correct severely sagging breasts. You may require a breast augmentation and a breast lift to restore drooping breasts.
Breast reduction repairs large or stretched nipple areas. The procedure works well if your breasts have stretched after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or over time. It removes excess skin and fat tissue from your breasts to have a breast size more proportional to the rest of your body. Breast reduction helps ease the discomfort caused by neck or back pain that doctors associate with large breasts.
A breast lift addresses drooping by raising the breast. The procedure lifts the breasts by removing extra skin around the breast. It also tightens the surrounding breast tissue to support the new breast outline.
A breast lift can enhance your contour with a breast shape that looks more elevated and youthful. That helps address the loss of skin firmness that results from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and even aging. However, the procedure does not significantly change your breast size or make your breasts look fuller. A breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation to help make the breasts look rounder.
A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, eliminates excess tissue, skin, and fat from the lower abdomen. You may choose the procedure if you have too much skin or fat around your belly button area or saggy skin in your lower abdomen. A tummy tuck tightens weak abdominal walls with sutures and repositions the remaining skin to create a more trimmed look.
Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat from the stomach area, arms, neck, thighs, hips, or buttocks. It contours body parts with too much fat but steady body weight. Doctors do not consider liposuction as a general weight loss method. It is also not an alternative to weight loss. You are likely to cut more weight through diet and workouts or bariatric surgery than you would with liposuction if you are overweight.
Female rejuvenation or vaginal rejuvenation refers to procedures that reshape, tighten, and reduce the size of vaginal tissues to restore symmetry, firmness, and youthfulness. The process can be surgical or nonsurgical.
You may consider feminine rejuvenation if your vaginal tissues have been affected by pregnancy, genetics, or aging. These factors can cause the tissues to sag, and you may have difficulties with hygiene, physical activities, and urinary tract infections.
