Mommy Makeover procedures intend to reverse the changes that happen in the abdomen and breasts as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. A combination of a tummy tuck with breast lifting with or without an implant is the most common procedure. If you want to enhance your figure, it may be the perfect time to get a mommy makeover in Walnut Creek.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a set of procedures intended to restore your figure after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Dr. Ghorbani believes that this procedure should be tailored to each patient’s specific anatomic changes due to pregnancy. Some patients may need a mini tummy tuck and breast lifting without an implant. Others may be a good candidate for breast lifting and enlargement with Saline or Silicone implants and a tummy tuck. Both procedures are performed at the same time and on an outpatient basis.
You will likely be considered a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you are in good health, are close to your ideal weight, and have no plans to get pregnant again. It is also important to have positive and realistic expectations. Non-smokers are ideal, and smokers will need to quit before the date of surgery.
Your Mommy Makeover Consultation
Dr. Ghorbani will ask you about your goals for your mommy makeover procedure and then discuss your options with you. He will assess your general health and any pre-existing health problems. Dr. Ghorbani will also perform a physical examination and measure your abdomen, breasts, and buttocks.
What Is a Mommy Makeover Like?
A mommy makeover may consist of any combination of the following procedures:
- Tummy tuck – This procedure creates a more toned abdominal area by reducing an abdominal bulge, sagging stomach skin, and stretch marks. Excess fat and skin are removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened. The skin is draped over the repositioned contours.
- Mini tummy tuck – This variation on the full tummy tuck focuses specifically on the lower abdomen. The incision is shorter, and less tissue adjustment typically occurs.
- Breast lift – This procedure restores the breasts’ perkiness and reduces sagging after breastfeeding. Excess skin is removed, your nipple is repositioned to a higher location, and your breast tissues are reshaped.
- Breast augmentation – This procedure restores the breasts’ larger size after losing volume due to breastfeeding. It involves placing saline or silicone implants in the breasts.
What Is Mommy Makeover Recovery Like?
The recovery time is rather short and you could resume all your normal activities in 7 to 10 days depending on the procedures performed. You will need to wear support garments to help the target areas recover. Swelling and bruising will subside in time, and stitches will be removed when you come in for a follow-up checkup. It is best to avoid strenuous activities for around two months.
The Cost of a Mommy Makeover
The price of a mommy makeover depends on the combination of different procedures chosen. Its cost may be affected by the surgeon’s fees, operating room fees, surgical garments, anesthesia fees, and other factors. Cost can be discussed during the consultation.
