Becoming a mother is one of the most beautiful transformations a woman can experience in her lifetime. Unfortunately, pregnancy, childbirth and all of the hormonal changes that come with the transition to motherhood can leave a woman with sagging breasts, loose skin, stretch marks and abdominal muscle separation. Even strict diet and exercise don’t address these things, which can take a toll on a woman’s body.
Women are increasingly turning to the “mommy makeover,” which is a combination of multiple cosmetic procedures, often including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation (with or without lift) and liposuction. Other treatments and less-invasive procedures such as mini tummy tucks and fat transfers may be considered as well.
A woman’s body undergoes so many changes with pregnancy and childbirth that you risk reversing the results of your mommy makeover if you have more children after the procedure or continue to nurse. Dr. Derek Steinbacher suggests that women who are considering this surgery are certain they are done with their childbearing.
Your consultation with Dr. Steinbacher will help you determine what procedure will be best for your desired results. Many women will want a breast augmentation with a breast lift for fullness and youthful shape, while other women want to have a reduction surgery to reduce volume.
A tummy tuck can tighten underlying muscles and remove excess skin to give you a flatter belly. Liposuction can remove small deposits of fat to improve contour and create a better figure.
Ideal patients for mommy makeover surgery are in good health and have lost a majority of their baby weight. You also have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the surgical results and are doing the procedure for yourself, no one else.
