Get an All-Over Refresher with a Mommy Makeover
- Posted on: Mar 30 2022
Coming out of a long, cold winter can be freeing. We want to get outside and start shedding the layers we’ve been hiding under for months. If the idea of this is both exhilarating and terrifying to you because your breasts and body aren’t what they used to be, you may be an excellent candidate for a Mommy Makeover. This procedure can make all things old look new again, at least as it pertains to your shape. If having perkier, fuller breasts, a firm, flat tummy, and better curves sounds good to you, now is a great time to explore what a personalized combination of procedures can do for you.
What is a Mommy Makeover and what can it do?
The term Mommy Makeover may sound like a dead giveaway about the procedure itself. However, it’s not as accurate as it seems. You see, you can be a great candidate for a Mommy Makeover even if you have never been pregnant or have never breastfed. You can have a Mommy Makeover if you have no children at all! The term was coined simply out of relevance to the areas of the body it was designed to treat. Primarily, that was the breasts and the tummy. A Mommy Makeover can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, from breast ptosis to abdominal laxity, but there is much more to it than that. Ultimately, the procedure is done to give a woman back the curves that make her feel like her best self. This is achieved through the careful selection of ideal surgical techniques that best meet each patient’s needs. Some of the options for Mommy Makeover treatment include:
A woman’s breasts may enlarge by a few cup sizes during the pregnancy and breastfeeding seasons of her life. Weight gain affects the breasts, and so does weight loss. These changes in breast size can ultimately lead to deflation over time. As the skin becomes thinner and weaker with age, the breasts may also begin to sag. The larger and heavier breasts are, the more ptosis they may suffer. For the best Mommy Makeover results, it is important to discern which breast procedure or combination of procedures are relevant. Breast augmentation is performed to give new shape and fullness to breasts that have lost volume. This procedure may achieve somewhat of an improvement in projection and perkiness. However, it should not be viewed as a way to restore the ideal height of the breasts on the chest wall. Your skilled surgeon will perform a thorough examination of your breasts and surrounding tissue to ensure that augmentation alone can get you where you want to be. Otherwise, a lift may be recommended with or without the use of breast implants.
Abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is seen as a cornerstone of the Mommy Makeover. This surgical technique, tailored to the individual in the form of a mini or full tummy tuck, is designed to restore firmness and flatness to the midsection. It can also repair the separation of the abdominal muscles, and remove stretch marks and an existing C-section scar. A tummy tuck does not remove a significant amount of fatty tissue. That is a job for liposuction, which is also a common Mommy Makeover procedure.
Excess fat can accumulate as a result of pregnancy or any number of other factors. Women often struggle with a little more padding than they’d like in areas including the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Liposuction is an excellent, minimally-invasive way to quickly remove unwanted fat. With healthy lifestyle habits, the effects of liposuction, as well as abdominoplasty, can be enduring.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Savvy women have long pondered the idea of removing fat from one area of the body and using it elsewhere. In theory, this has always sounded like a good idea. It just took medicine some time to ensure that fat transfer could be done safely and effectively. Since this discovery was confirmed, women around the world have utilized excess fat cells in the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Taking the fat cells harvested from an area like the hips, flanks, back, thighs, or abdomen, the trained surgeon injects the purified fat into the areas of the buttocks where additional volume can recreate contours to appear firmer, fuller, and perkier.
