Having a child is one of the most magical experiences for a woman, but it can also be one of the most damaging to her body. It’s no secret that pregnancy can affect the body in many different ways and these changes often leave mothers feeling deflated. Mommy makeovers allows our patients to get their confidence back. Let’s go over what you can expect when getting a mommy makeover with Dr. Anh Vu.
What Exactly is a Mommy Makeover?
The term mommy makeover is used to describe a combination of cosmetic surgeries and treatments that aim to restore and rejuvenate a woman’s body following childbirth. Mommy makeovers typically provide patients with a slimmer and more defined waistline, perkier and more youthful-looking breasts, and an overall boost in confidence. The best part about a mommy makeover is that you don’t need to be a mommy to get one! Many patients who come in for the mommy makeover treatment are simply looking to restore and rejuvenate their bodies after experiencing a major weight loss or when entering a new stage in life.
What’s Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A basic mommy makeover with Dr. Anh Vu typically involves the following surgical procedures:
1. Breast Lift
A breast lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that involves lifting the breasts to a higher position on the chest to achieve a perkier, more youthful look. A breast lift is perfect for patients who are satisfied with the size of their breasts and simply wish to enhance their shape and placement.
2. Breast Augmentation
Patients who find they have lost volume in their breasts after breastfeeding may opt for breast augmentation in addition to their breast lift. A breast augmentation includes the use of saline or silicone breast implants to increase the overall size of the breasts while enhancing their shape and position on the chest.
Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn and unwanted pockets of fat from virtually anywhere on the body. Patients who receive liposuction as part of their mommy makeover typically wish to remove fat from their abdomen or midsection.
4. Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck is one of the most important parts of a mommy makeover, as it removes excess stretched and sagging skin from the midsection that won’t bounce back after pregnancy. After a tummy tuck, patients can expect having a tight and flat tummy that they can feel confident in again.
