Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery Procedures
By Michael A. Devlin, MD on October 29, 2014
If you have recently given birth or have had children in the past, you know just how many changes your body can go through. It is for this reason that so many women have visited Devlin Cosmetic Surgery for body contouring and body sculpting surgery. One option that many consider after having a child is a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is not a single plastic surgery procedure but rather a combination of multiple body contouring surgeries that will help restore and enhance your figure. A mommy makeover can make you look as trim as you were before pregnancy, reducing sagging skin, peculiar body bulges, and problematic pockets of fat. Here are some common mommy makeover surgeries that patients undergo.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The Tummy Tuck is one of the most common mommy makeover treatments that we perform. The tummy tuck will remove excess and stretched skin in the abdominal region. Dr. Devlin also tightens the abdominal muscles that have been stretched during pregnancy.
Breast Lift and Breast Enhancement Surgeries
The breasts can be greatly altered in shape and firmness following pregnancy due to weight gain, hormonal changes as well as breastfeeding. Many women opt to undergo a breast lift surgery in order to improve the overall perkiness of their breasts. Breast augmentation is sometimes performed as to improve the size of the breasts. Sometimes breast reduction is performed in order to reduce extreme sagginess. Everyone is different and your individual needs will be tailor fit to suit your body type.
Liposuction will help with sculpting the body wherever there are small pockets of fat that cause body contour issues. In a way, liposuction is just as common as tummy tuck surgery in a mommy makeover treatment. This procedure is usually done as a final surgery. This allows Dr. Devlin to "fine tune" and contour the waist, back and hip areas.
Additional Body Lifts
The abdominal area and chest are not the only parts of the body that can be affected by pregnancy. Additional body lifts can be performed in order to address the buttocks, the thighs, the upper arms, and bra line area. This will ensure a complete and effective enhancement of your overall appearance.
