Why a Mommy Makeover?
While children themselves can be a source of joy, the “wear and tear” that pregnancy puts on a mother’s body is not always quite so joyous. Changes in the tummy, the waist, and the breasts are just a few areas that can change significantly after one or multiple pregnancies.
Fortunately, a combination of plastic surgery procedures can safely and effectively address many of these issues to help women regain their pre-pregnancy shape and form.
What does our Mommy Makeover include?
A “mommy makeover” usually involves some combination of tummy tuck, liposuction of the waist, and breast enhancement. It is one of the most popular combination procedures at Fiala Aesthetics. For some women, other issues may need to be addressed, such as breast ptosis (breast droop), or contouring of other body areas, such as the hips or inner thighs. Dr. Fiala and Dr. Rhee can help with these as well, but they may require a second surgical session, depending on the individual situation.
But for many women, the three-in-one Mommy Makeover procedure is all they need to bring their body back to “the way it was before baby” or make it even better than it ever was.
“My OBGYN suggested I visit with Dr. Fiala as she has seen his excellent work in her practice. I am delighted with my Mommy Makeover! From my initial consultation with Dr. Fiala, I felt comfortable with him. I appreciated his listening to what I wanted to achieve and not pushing his agenda for my body like other doctors did during the consultation. He is personable and an excellent communicator. The entire team from front the front desk to the nurse that took care of me on my tummy tuck overnight are professional, thoughtful, informative and take seriously what I was entrusting them with, improving me! This is the first time I have done anything for myself and I am beyond happy with this decision and the results! Come in and speak with them and you will be hooked.” Read more of Dr. Fiala’s Testimonials here »
The Mommy Makeover concept starts with a high-quality tummy tuck. By removing the loose abdominal skin and any stretch marks that are below the belly button, and repairing abdominal muscle laxity, both Dr. Fiala and Dr. Rhee can repair some of the more obvious changes that have happened due to previous pregnancies. Careful placement and closure of the abdominal incision and paying close attention to making a pretty new belly button are hallmarks of our procedures.
Breast Augmentation (See Breast Augmentation Before & After Photos)
Breast augmentation is a common request during Mommy Makeovers, as many women find that they have lost significant breast volume after the completion of breast feeding. With this loss of size also comes a loss of upper pole fullness in the breast. A proportionately-sized breast implant, either saline, traditional silicone or “gummy bear” silicone, can be used to restore the missing volume and enhance the fullness in the upper breast.
Liposuction (See Liposuction Before & After Photos)
Many women can also benefit from a little shaping of the waist area. By shaping the curve of the back (“flank”) area with liposuction at the same time as the tummy tuck, the desirable hour-glass figure can often be restored by eliminating the dreaded “love handles” or “muffin top” at the back, and fixing the loose skin at the front of the abdomen. We use the SAFElipo approach, using power assisted liposuction, for a comprehensive body contouring process.
