It’s a New Year, so why not a New You? The New Year is a time for reflection and resolutions, many of which are centered around self-improvement. If you’re bothered by your post-pregnancy appearance and are done with childbearing, then the popular Mommy Makeover surgery may be right for you. Read on to learn more about this combination of surgeries.
Multiple procedures in one
The reason why a Mommy Makeover is so popular is that it is one surgical session for several surgical procedures. This results in one recovery period, which makes it safer and more convenient than spacing out procedures over time.
The most common elements of a Mommy Makeover include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck and liposuction.
Breast augmentation will address lost volume and shape caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. You will choose between silicone gel and saline implants. Silicone gel are the most popular choice because they look and feel most like natural breasts. A breast lift will reshape and “lift” sagging breasts into a more youthful position.
A tummy tuck will give you a tighter, firmer abdomen by fixing and tightening separated abdominal muscles that have stretched and don’t bounce back after pregnancy. Excess skin will be removed at this time as well. A mini tummy tuck may be indicated for women who only have excess abdominal skin in the lower abdomen.
Liposuction will get rid of those stubborn pockets of unwanted fat on the abdomen, hips and inner and outer thighs. This fat resists even the best diet and exercise program, and lipsocution will give you a leaner, more desired contour.
Your consultation will determine whether you are a good candidate for surgery. It’s important to be in good general health and to discuss your medications and lifestyle during this appointment. Certain medications and smoking can affect recovery. If you plan on having more children, you will want to wait to have surgery because future pregnancy could reverse the results of surgery.
A Mommy Makeover is a great way to address multiple problem areas caused by pregnancy and childbirth, providing long-lasting results. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Wiener by calling (773) 763-3990 today.
