Restore your pre-pregnancy body with a "Mommy Makeover" combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Having children can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a woman’s life. Yet, it is also a rollercoaster one. Both pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a heavy toll on the body, leaving many women looking and feeling less than their best. If you identify issues such as saggy and deflated breasts, excess abdominal skin or stubborn fat deposits and you would like to rejuvenate your appearance and restore your pre-pregnancy body, the “Mommy Makeover” combination of procedures is the right for you.
This combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments is designed to restore integrity, volume and youthful vitality through every area in need of rejuvenation. With plenty of options available, we will customize your ¨Mommy Makeover¨ to give you the precise correction you are looking for.
Are You a Candidate for a "mommy makeover"?
It is best to wait between 3 and 6 months after having your last child to pursue a ¨Mommy Makeover¨ procedure, as a pregnancy could alter the achieved results.
When you are ready for your “Mommy Makeover”, it can be used to address any combination of the following concerns:
- Sagging, deflated breasts, often due to breastfeeding
- Stretched abdominal muscles and a bulge that does not respond to diet and exercise
- The formation of stretch marks across the abdomen
- Stubborn pockets of fat on any area of the body
- Sagging upper arms that resemble “bat wings”
- Drooping buttocks or sagging skin around the thighs
- Dull, tired skin tone and signs of aging on the face
- Laxity of the labia tissue, resulting in embarrassment and physical discomfort
Depending on your aesthetic goals, a “Mommy Makeover” may be performed in a single surgery or staged in a series of sessions. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will explain your options and will determine the safest way to achieve the most effective cosmetic results.
"Mommy Makeover" procedures
A “Mommy Makeover” is a combination of procedures that will help you reshape and contour your body. All makeovers at IMAGN INSTITUTE are tailored to the specific needs and aesthetic goals of our patients. Some of the procedures that are commonly included in this treatment include:
Augmentation or reduction, with or without a lift, can restore your breasts to their youthful shape and profile. Augmentation utilizes implants to provide you with the full curves you are currently lacking. Reduction offers a more proportionate breast size, and may relieve stress on the back and neck caused by very large breasts. A lift reverses breast sagging and creates a more curvaceous upper body profile. Learn more about breast enhancement options.
A tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) tightens up loose abdominal muscles and removes excess skin to create a smoother, flatter contour in the midsection. Stretch marks across the lower part of the abdomen are also eliminated. We might recommend a liposuction to your tummy tuck to further sculpt your abdomen. Liposuction can also be used to smooth out other areas of the body profile where focalized pockets of fat are interfering with your contour. Learn more about the tummy tuck procedure.
Sagging buttocks can be restored with a buttock lift that creates a perkier backside. Additional fullness can also be created, often using your own fat removed from other areas of the body to augment the buttocks. Learn more about the buttock enhancement options.
This procedure removes loose skin and extra fat from the upper leg to construct a smoother transition from the hips to the knees. The procedure can be used to firm up both the inner and outer thighs. Learn more about the thigh lift procedure.
Even the arms can be impacted both by having children and the simple passage of time. If “bat wings” are your bane, an arm lift will remove the loose skin and sculpt a leaner contour on the underside of the upper arm. Learn more about the arm lift procedure.
From a surgical face lift to non-surgical anti-aging treatments, we can effectively turn back the clock and rejuvenate your appearance. Say goodbye to your dull, tired skin tone and hello to a refreshed look and a healthy glow. Learn more about the face lift options.
If childbirth has led to changes in your vaginal area, a labiaplasty may be able to restore your vaginal lips (labia) to their original appearance and function. This procedure may offer relief from physical symptoms, as well as improve the appearance of the vagina. Learn more about the labiaplasty procedure.
The Recovery Process
Your surgery and recovery process will be determined by the specific procedures you choose. You may be able to go home the same day as your surgery, or we might recommend an overnight stay in the hospital to ensure your recovery begins safely and comfortably. You will be prescribed medication to manage pain and soreness during the first days to make sure you can recover comfortably. Most women would go back to their normal routines within 2 – 4 weeks after a “Mommy Makeover”.
