How does a Mommy Makeover help?
Many women can gain excess weight in various areas of the body, develop loose skin, or experience loss of shape in other ways following a pregnancy and breastfeeding. Stretch marks around the waist are also common after a pregnancy. All these conditions can be corrected with a single plastic surgery procedure known as a mommy makeover.
It is essentially a combination of multiple procedures performed at one go. The benefit is that the patient has to face the risks, pain, discomfort, anesthesia, downtime and other issues associated with surgery only once. The outcomes are comprehensive because the whole body is taken into account when the cosmetic surgeon prepares the mommy makeover treatment plan.
Dr. Parker examines a patient’s health status, history of previous surgeries, and her aesthetic goals before recommending an appropriate combination of procedures for a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery. Patients in and around Las Vegas have an opportunity to receive state of the art mommy makeover surgery from Dr. Parker.
Breast Augmentation or Reduction
Following a pregnancy and breastfeeding, some women may gain breast volume, while some others may lose volume. In case, the breasts become deflated, the patient may opt for breast implants as a part of mommy makeover surgery. Saline or silicone implants are surgically inserted into the breasts to enhance their size, fullness, and volume.
In a situation, where the breasts have become oversized, the plastic surgeon may recommend breast reduction procedure. In this case, excess breast tissue is removed to make the breasts less heavy and more proportionate to the rest of the body.
If the patient is happy with the size of the breasts, but the breasts have sagged due to loss of skin elasticity, a breast lift may be recommended as a part of mommy makeover plastic surgery. Sometimes breast lift and breast augmentation may be performed together to achieve more effective outcomes.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty, commonly known as tummy tuck surgery, may be included as a part of a mommy makeover. Abdominal area usually bears the maximum brunt of a pregnancy. The skin in the area may become loose, and stretch marks may develop in some cases. Tummy tuck surgery can effectively make the abdomen tighter, flatter and firmer to improve the overall contour and proportion of the body.
Liposuction is often included as a part of mommy makeover cosmetic surgery. Liposuction is a highly effective way to reduce wanted fat deposits in targeted areas of the body. Areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, and calves are commonly treated with liposuction. The procedure is relatively less invasive, and may be combined with body lift treatments to enhance overall body contour.
