Pregnancy and Childbirth are beautiful, but the aftereffects they leave on bodies are unacceptable. Even if you bounce back after the first delivery, subsequent pregnancies and deliveries are bound to make a mark your body. To eliminate these pregnancy effects, many moms are choosing Mommy Makeovers. The name may be cutesy, but the intense and expensive procedures involved in it can address separate issues in combined procedures and will save your money in the long run. The fact that pregnancy and childbearing can affect a woman’s body completely different from the other is why Mommy Makeovers are designed to be versatile and custom-made to specifics.
Ideal candidates for mommy makeovers
Mommy Makeovers are for mothers who do not plan to have any more children and have not been breastfeeding for at least 6 months. Her ideal BMI (Body Mass Index) should be less than 30. Her good physical health and being a non-smoker is an added advantage. Women can bear another baby after a mommy makeover but, as these procedures require additional corrections, one should consult this with her surgeon.
What are the plastic surgery procedures involved?
Among the many cosmetic treatments involved in Mommy Makeover, Dr. Salomon curates the best that will help you achieve the look you want. Some of the possibilities include:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Brazilian butt lift
Breast augmentation mostly referred to as a “boob job” by patients, involves using silicone breast implants or fat transfer to restore breast size and shape after pregnancy, weight loss, or breastfeeding. This procedure can also achieve a rounded breast shape or enhance natural breast size symmetry. However, in cases like severe dropping breasts, Breast Augmentation solely can’t work. Patients may need a Breast Lift Procedure for saggy breasts to look full and lifted. At Dr. Jhonny Salomon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, patients can avail Breast Lifting simultaneously with Breast Augmentation after consultation with specialists.
Saggy Breasts and loss of skin elasticity come from:
- Weight fluctuations
Breast Lift, also known as mastopexy lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissues. After pregnancy or sudden weight loss, the women’s breasts often change losing their shape and firmness. With Breast Lift, issues like enhanced areola can also be reduced. The ideal candidates for Breast Lift are those having saggy breasts or nipples pointing downwards. A breast lift may uplift your breasts but won’t change their shape significantly. For this, one needs to combine Breast Augmentation to see proper outcomes.
Abdominoplasty, also known as Tummy Tuck involves the elimination of excess skin and fat from your abdomen and tightens and reshapes the area. For a slimmer appearance, the muscles ranging from your abdomen to the belly button to the pubic area are tightened to narrow your waist and create an hourglass look. For an overall aesthetically pleasing appearance, Tummy Tuck is usually paired with the Liposuction of love handles and hip areas. The ideal candidate for Tummy Tuck is the one who has undergone dramatic changes post-childbirth.
Brazilian Butt Lift
With the widespread popularity of Butt Augmentation, the procedure is often taken up by patients for an attractive, well-proportioned body. Considered as a volume and shape procedure, Butt augmentation involves implant placement or fat grafting to enhance the overall proportion and balance the upper and lower body parts. While implants can cause deteriorating side effects like pain, hardening, seroma formation, and infection, fat grafting is a completely natural procedure where fats from the unwanted areas are transferred to your butt to create a balance.
The time taken for healing depends on the number of procedures you’ve undergone, your body’s response to anesthesia and surgery. At Dr. Jhonny Salomon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, the patient needs to attend a consultation session to discuss her concerns and goals. Following this, Dr. Salomon curates this procedure tailored to the patient’s specific needs so that she can feel confident about her looks.
