What is a Mommy Makeover?
After child bearing, many women are dissatisfied with the appearance of their body. Many mothers find that their breasts have changed in volume and are sagging.
At Kovanda Plastic Surgery we offer a mommy makeover that can help women return to their pre-pregnancy form.
Ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover
Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are women who have completed their childbearing, and are as close as they can get to their ideal weight.
A mommy makeover may be a good option for you if:
- Physically healthy and at a stable weight.
- Bothered by the appearance of your abdomen or breasts.
- Done having children and are not planning any future pregnancies.
Preparing for surgery
When the surgery is scheduled the patients health will be evaluated prior to that date. Dr. Kovanda will recommend to avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs or supplements as they can increase bleeding.
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
The surgery usually involves improving the breasts by replacing the lost volume with a breast implant or fat graft. A breast lift could be recommended in addition to a breast augmentation if the position of the nipples drops too much, or if more volume is desired.
In order to improve the appearance the abdomen a tummy tuck is performed. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and stretch marks below the belly button and restores the abdominal muscles to their pre-pregnancy tone.
Mommy makeover recovery & results
The results of your mommy makeover surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. The final results appear over the next few months following your surgery.
