What is a Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can take a toll on a woman’s physical figure in many cases. A mother has an opportunity to re-gain her pre-pregnancy figure with cosmetic surgery procedures. If she chooses individual aesthetic procedures, the improvement in the overall appearance may only be quite limited. On the other hand, a mommy makeover surgery can be a good choice for a comprehensive improvement.
A mommy makeover procedure will involve surgical treatment in certain pre-determined areas of the body that require enhancement. The surgery will address multiple issues such as loose skin, excess fat accumulation, and cellulite appearance in one go. Dr. Thomas Fiala is a board certified plastic surgeon providing state of the art procedures such as mommy makeover. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Any mother who feels the need to reverse or improve the adverse aesthetic impact caused by pregnancy and childbirth may make a good candidate for this procedure. Women who give a natural birth and those who undergo a C-section surgery will make equally good candidates for a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery.
However, the candidate should not have a plan for another pregnancy in the foreseeable future. The surgeon will also consider the overall health of the candidate, previous surgeries if any, and her personal aesthetic goals prior to determining whether mommy makeover is the most appropriate procedure in her case.
The cosmetic surgeon will usually customize the mommy makeover procedure to meet the unique aesthetic needs of a patient. The procedure will usually include two or more of the following surgeries:
• Breast Augmentation
• Breast Lift
• Breast Reduction
• Tummy Tuck
• Body Lift
• Body Contouring
• Cellulite Reduction
• Stretch Mark Removal
• Non-invasive procedures
Breast augmentation or implant surgery is commonly included in a mommy makeover because the mother may experience loss of breast volume following pregnancy or breastfeeding. If the breasts droop significantly, breast lift surgery may be added to the mommy makeover plan. Some women may develop oversized breasts, which may necessitate a breast reduction procedure instead of implants.
Liposuction surgery is one of the common procedures in a mommy makeover. Liposuction can be used to improve body contours in a targeted manner with a less invasive approach. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Fiala provides mommy makeover and other procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas.
Stretch mark and cellulite removal procedures are also commonly performed in a mommy makeover. Non-surgical procedures may sometimes be combined with surgery in order to make the overall procedure relatively less invasive. A detailed treatment plan will be prepared in consultation with the patient, which will accomplish the desired goals in a safe and effective manner.
On average, a patient will take about two to three weeks before they can resume their normal activities. Heavy lifting of weights and strenuous movements should be avoided for about six weeks. The patient should follow the surgeon’s instructions diligently in order to minimize risk during the recovery.
