Though the name seems self-explanatory, the reality is Mommy Makeovers aren’t just for moms. While moms can certainly benefit from the combination of liposuction, breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck, our Portland team of doctors often performs the group of procedures on all kinds of patients who want major transformations without multiple operations.
By combining procedures, patients can benefit from solving multiple concerns and only have to go under general anesthesia once. Other benefits include planning for only one recovery period and saving money on certain fees. It’s an efficient way to achieve your aesthetic goals and maximize the benefits of your plastic surgery experience.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
While Mommy Makeovers can vary greatly in the procedures they include, they typically consist of two or more of the following procedures:
- Tummy Tuck: This procedure addresses loose abdominal skin and excess fat. While it’s a popular choice for moms whose stomach skin has stretched during pregnancy, anyone who has experienced weight changes—causing excess skin in this area—may benefit. For those with fairly elastic skin whose concerns are primarily below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck may be able to effectively address the issue through less invasive surgery.
- Breast Augmentation: While moms who have lost shape or volume opt to include this procedure, they aren’t the only patients who can benefit. Breast implants can balance out body proportions and help women feel more feminine and confident—whether they have had children or not. It’s very common to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift to elevate sagging breasts. Breast reduction surgery may be appropriate for women with overly large breasts.
- Liposuction: Another common component of a Mommy Makeover, this method of fat reduction can help sculpt a more streamlined figure. It involves suctioning fat cells from the body in targeted areas and is a good choice for anyone who wants help with eliminating fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise.
How Can It Be Customized?
Even though it’s named after the combination of procedures women often opt for post-pregnancy, the Mommy Makeover can be customized to fit any patient looking to address multiple aesthetic concerns in one go. By eliminating the need for multiple recovery times, this option allows you to achieve a personalized, full-body transformation without a lot of recovery time.
It’s important to work with your surgeon to determine the best possible treatment plan for you. When you book a personal consultation, you’ll be able to discuss all your concerns with your doctor and get detailed recommendations for procedures that fit your needs.
