The Mommy Makeover process is a popular form of combined plastic surgery. It is generally combined of breast and body procedures like breast augmentation or lift, liposuction or abdominoplasty, and buttock rejuvenation. This customized series of procedures results in full-body rejuvenation for women who have birthed and raised children as well as for women who have not. The objective of treatment is to achieve a specified outcome through a select combination of techniques that maximizes results while minimizing recovery. A Mommy Makeover can be life-changing because the right combination of procedures can perfect the body’s proportions.
Breast rejuvenation may require a simple breast augmentation to restore or create volume and contour. This can be achieved with carefully selected breast implants. In some cases, a breast lift is needed. This can be done in conjunction with breast augmentation or, if preferred, on its own. We determine the details of breast rejuvenation by evaluating each patient’s ideal breast size and shape in comparison to their current status. When the nipples are positioned below the inframammary crease, a breast lift is highly recommended.
Mommy Makeover treatment often includes a tummy tuck. Patients should approach this procedure understanding that the primary objective is to tighten the loose or separated abdominal muscle. Some fatty tissue is removed but, in some cases, liposuction must be performed to achieve the desired improvements. A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscle so the midsection looks smooth and flat, and so transitions from one area to the next are consistent.
When Mommy Makeovers were first performed, they focused primarily on the breasts and the midsection. With advances in plastic surgery, many of these procedures now also include buttocks rejuvenation. Board-certified plastic surgeons who are trained in the Brazilian Butt Lift technique can easily combine abdominal contouring using liposuction with buttocks rejuvenation. This additional aspect of the Mommy Makeover builds proportions in a way that was previously impossible.
