Revitalize with a Mommy Makeover
Mommy Makeover | Combination of Two Techniques
There is nothing as beautiful as motherhood and there is nothing as precious as a mother’s child. But most women undergo changes in their bodies as a result of pregnancy. There may be a shrinkage of the breast tissue, sagging in the breast may occur; bulging of the belly as well as loose skin and stretch marks can happen. These effects can make a woman self conscious about her appearance and uncomfortable with her significant other. The mommy makeover is here to help slim and shape.
The mommy makeover is a combination of two Plastic Surgery techniques performed together in one operation to restore the youthful vitality of a woman’s breasts and belly. The advantage of performing these two operations is that the overall recovery time is decreased compared to the recovery time if the two procedures were performed separately. It can also be a net cost savings to the patient.
Mommy Makeover | Breast Augmentation & Lift
Typically the mommy makeover incorporates either a breast augmentation, a breast lift, or a breast lift and augmentation. Which of the procedures performed depends upon the patient’s underlying breast shape and the result that they want to see. The breast augmentation procedure can be performed with no scar on the breast. However, it does not technically lift the breast. The breast lift and augmentation procedure will fill out and lift the breast, but there is a resultant lollipop scar around the areola and down the breast (Dr. Schneider performs his breast lift procedures without the anchor scar underneath the breast).
Mommy Makeover | Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
In addition to the breast procedure, the mommy makeover usually incorporates a tummy tuck technique to flatten and contour the belly. Dr. Schneider performs 4 different types of tummy tucks depending upon whether there is bulging of the muscle wall, excess fat, loose or hanging skin, or a combination of all three.
Mommy Makeover Procedure
The procedure takes three to four hours to perform depending upon what procedures are incorporated. It is performed in our AAAHC certified surgery center and patients are able to go home the same day.
