Becoming a mom can cause unwanted changes in your overall body shape. Many women experience excess or sagging skin around the stomach, as well as a loss of breast volume. The mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to help women regain a youthful figure after pregnancy and childbirth.
For most patients, a mommy makeover involves a tummy tuck combined with breast augmentation. Additionally, liposuction may be performed. Throughout the consultation process Dr. Feledy will work with you to create a personalized surgical plan to fit your specific needs and goals.
FAQ About Mommy Makeovers
Am I an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover?
If you're a mom who is bothered by the changes brought on by pregnancy, then a mommy makeover may be right for you. The surgery is designed to address problems such as a protruding tummy, persistent areas of body fat, or sagging or deflated breasts. Patients are typically advised to wait at least 3 to 6 months after childbirth before considering a mommy makeover.
What will happen during the consultation process?
During your consultation, Dr. Feledy will determine which procedures will help you regain a youthful body shape. He will also be available to answer any questions you have, as well as discuss the procedures in detail, so you can create a customized treatment plan.
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation can help moms achieve larger, fuller more symmetrical breasts. Saline or silicone implants are used to enlarge breast size for these patients. Through the surgical insertion of implants, the surgery can improve your body proportion, feminine appearance, and self-confidence.
What is a tummy tuck?
The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure that can address a protruding tummy and stretched abdominal muscles. The doctor removes fat and skin from the abdomen area, creating a tighter, more toned abdomen.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is often used to target fat deposits that are particularly resistant to exercise and dietary changes, and is frequently used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. If needed, the doctor can perform liposuction during your mommy makeover to help slim down specific areas of your body.
