While motherhood is incredibly rewarding, it isn’t without challenges. In fact, one of your biggest obstacles as a new mom might be trying to regain your pre-baby body. Even with a healthy lifestyle, this goal can sometimes seem impossible. Fortunately, the procedures that are commonly included in a mommy makeover can help you get your old figure — and confidence — back!
Are All Mommy Makeovers the Same?
The term “mommy makeover” doesn’t refer to a pre-set list of procedures that will work for every mom. Instead, it refers to a completely personalized combination of body and breast surgeries. Some women even choose to incorporate nonsurgical treatments to help achieve their desired results.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding impact every woman’s body differently. Additionally, every new mom has her own aesthetic goals. That’s why your mommy makeover will only consist of services to address your specific concerns.
During your consultation at West Michigan Plastic Surgery, you will learn more about the procedures that you might want to include in your mommy makeover. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Holley will work with you to create a surgical plan that accounts for your unique goals and physical characteristics. His primary goal is to help you achieve the beautiful outcome that you desire.
Common Mommy Makeover Procedures
A few of the procedures that are often part of a mommy makeover include:
- Breast augmentation: If pregnancy and breastfeeding caused your chest to look asymmetrical or deflated, then you may consider breast augmentation. This procedure can improve the fullness, projection, and shape of your breasts.
- Breast lift: Sagging and drooping breasts are common after pregnancy, and correcting them may require a breast lift. A breast lift can remove excess skin and elevate the position of your new breast contour. This procedure is often combined with breast augmentation.
- Tummy tuck: Many women struggle to see abdominal definition after pregnancy because their muscles were stretched or torn. If you still have a bit of a pooch after giving birth, it may be caused by diastasis recti, also known as abdominal separation. While it is sometimes impossible to heal your muscles with diet and exercise alone, a tummy tuck can actually restore your abdominal muscles while removing excess skin and fat.
- Liposuction: If you have stubborn pockets of fat in and outside of your tummy area, you may benefit from liposuction. This time-tested method of fat removal can be used to improve the contour of many problem areas such as your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.
A mommy makeover is typically performed during one surgical visit. While a single-stage procedure is often the preferred choice, you may also have other scheduling options. Dr. Holley will develop a plan that works with your needs.
