Mommy Makeover Body Contouring Procedures, Breast Reshaping Surgery.
The "Mommy Makeover" is a common term in the media that refers to several procedures performed together to restore a woman's body back to her "pre-children" days. Usually, the makeover includes a breast lift with or without implants, liposuction and a tummy tuck. Breast lifts usually require a "lollipop-shaped" scar that facilitates rearrangement of the breast tissues in a conical, youthful way. If desired, implants are often used because they restore the breast volume lost after breast feeding or weight fluctuations. The implants help restore upper pole fullness, thus simplifying the procedure and often eliminating the need for a "vertical" scar altogether.
The abdominoplasty or tummy tuck removes most stretch marks as they are predominantly located beneath the level of the belly button and restores the flat abdominal contour present before children. In order to achieve the best possible results, liposculpting of not only the abdomen and flanks but also the arms and thighs can be performed.
Combining all of these procedures into the Mommy Makeover has the advantage of one recovery period with patients getting back to most normal activities within several days. Exercising and strenuous physical activities are permitted after approximately three weeks later. Women can regain the confidence in their bodies and return to the active and healthy lifestyles they were accustomed to before becoming mothers!
