What Is Included in a Mommy Makeover Package?
By The Landings Surgical Centre on January 25, 2020
Pregnancy and childbirth put a woman’s body through many changes, which is why plastic surgeons developed the mommy makeover. A mommy makeover combines multiple breast enhancement and body contouring procedures to remove loose skin and tighten the figure, helping you appear slimmer and trimmer in the process.
Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau has helped numerous mothers in the Halifax, NS and Prince Edward Island area achieve a better body contour thanks to the mommy makeover. The team here at The Landings Surgical Centre would like to list some of the most common procedures performed during a mommy makeover.
Treatments for the Abdominal Area
A woman’s stomach gets stretched out a great deal during pregnancy, which can lead to a drooping belly and stretch marks around the stomach. That’s why every mommy makeover typically involves a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). The surgery reduces the loose skin around the lower abdomen and tightens the overall appearance of the abdomen.
Breast Enhancement Procedures
Changes in breast size during pregnancy, milk production, and nursing can cause breasts to sag once breastfeeding is done. It’s not uncommon for women to undergo breast lift surgery or a combined breast lift with implants to help reduce breast sagging. The ideal breast enhancement surgery depends on your needs.
Toning and Firming the Buttocks
The buttocks are a common problem area when people gain weight and lose weight. A butt lift may be just what’s needed to enhance the shapeliness of a mother’s backside. The procedure will tighten up and firm up a rear end that may be flattened by weight gain and weight loss.
Body Contouring for the Extremities
The tummy and trunk aren’t the only parts of the body affected by weight gain and weight loss. The mommy makeover also targets the upper arms and thighs, which are both commonly impacted by excessive weight gain and weight loss. The arm lift (brachioplasty) is great for tightening and toning the shoulders and triceps. The thigh lift (thighplasty) is key for improving the appearance of the thighs and the hip area.
Facial Rejuvenation After Having a Baby
The face can undergo some unexpected changes from pregnancy and childbirth, which is why some facial rejuvenation is common in mommy makeovers. Generally, these procedures involve revisions to the lower portion of the face, such as the jawline and the neckline. The lower face lift helps reduce sagging around the chin and jowls, while the neck lift is ideal for removing loose skin of the neck.
