MOMMY MAKEOVER

WHY HAVE A MOMMY MAKEOVER

A woman’s body changes in many ways after giving birth to a child. Some of these changes are caused by:

  • Hormonal changes that affect the body
  • Growth of the baby inside the mother
  • Breastfeeding

ABDOMINAL CHANGES

The most dramatic change a woman experiences is typically what happens in the abdominal area. As the baby grows inside the mother, the uterus expands and pushes against the muscles of the abdominal wall. This causes the abdominal muscles and the skin of the abdomen to become stretched. It can also cause the abdominal muscles to separate.

Both the skin and the muscles are likely to remain stretched after giving birth. In many cases, no amount of dieting or exercise can return this part of the body to its pre-pregnancy appearance.

BREAST CHANGES

A similar situation can occur with the breasts, causing the tissue of the breasts to enlarge. While the volume of the breast tissue reduces after pregnancy and breastfeeding, the skin doesn’t necessarily shrink to its pre-pregnancy state. As a result, a woman’s breasts may sag and appear shrunken, even if they’re the same size as they were before pregnancy.

For some women, the opposite happens. Their breasts grow larger with pregnancy and breastfeeding but remain larger rather than returning to their pre-pregnancy size.​

WEIGHT GAIN

During pregnancy, excess weight is commonly gained in the hips, thighs, and love handles. Women often find it difficult to shed their excess pounds afterward, even with diet and exercise.

In fact, it’s common for women to experience post-pregnancy body changes and a resulting loss of confidence.  In one survey of more than 7,000 mothers, 86% said their abdominal area hadn’t returned to normal 1 to 2 years post-pregnancy while 64% said that their body image became worse after having a child.

If post-pregnancy body changes have reduced your self-confidence, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there’s a way to regain your pre-pregnancy shape. 

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

The mommy makeover procedure is designed to do two things: lift and reshape the breasts and tighten the abdominal area. This is achieved by removing the stretched skin that developed as a result of pregnancy and/or breastfeeding.

Breasts: 

The excess skin developed during pregnancy is removed to lift and firm up your breasts. This will restore them to a look and feel similar to their pre-pregnancy look and feel. Mommy makeovers can also include breast implants, depending on the patient’s preference. If a woman’s breasts grew disproportionately large as a result of pregnancy, she may choose a breast reduction.

Abdominal area: 

The muscles of the abdomen are tightened, and the excess skin that developed during pregnancy is removed. With tighter abdominal muscles, your stomach appears flatter. The removal of excess skin helps to smooth the tummy area.

Liposuction: 

Liposuction can remove fat from the hips, love handles, and thighs where weight gained due to pregnancy just won’t go away.

While the traditional mommy makeover typically includes a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction, you can customize your own makeover based upon goals for your body. Some women choose to have additional liposuction in other parts of the body. Others choose additional reshaping procedures such as a thigh lift or facial injections.

"Exceptional care"
The care was exceptional, better than in the States. Dr Vega is absolutely devoted to his patients and clearly to his practice. He is the most dedicated doctor Ive ever seen, including my own plastic surgeon brother in N.Y. The recovery time took longer than I expected, but I am 61 yrs old and had alot done-facelift, eyes, and nose. I am happy with the results with one slight minor detail- There is still a horizontal line between my eyes, that I wanted filled so it wouldnt appear. This is why not 5 stars. Everything else looks great. I look much younger. This took at least 20 years off my age (with exception of horizontal line betw eyes)I would highly recommend Dr Vega, at about one third less than the surgeons in Michigan.
