Mommy Makeovers have been a hot topic for discussion among moms in recent years. A set of body contouring procedures, the Mommy Makeover can be customized for each patient to provide the results she desires. Because of its name, prospective body contouring patients often assume it’s just for moms and might write it off as a solution to their own problems. Yet, childbirth is certainly not a prerequisite for this surgery! A Mommy Makeover is just one way to describe this procedure, which can offer great benefits to plenty of non-moms as well.
Procedures Involved in a Mommy Makeover
The Mommy Makeover was created to provide a convenient package of related surgeries to women who were frustrated with their bodies following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The stresses of these stages of life can wreak havoc on the breasts, midsection, and more. A plastic surgeon performing a Mommy Makeover aims to tone, re-contour, and enhance the body’s natural shape once more. Yet, it’s not just pregnancy and breastfeeding that can change the body in unwanted ways. Women without children can still suffer from the consequences of previous surgeries, weight gain and weight loss, and even aging, leading them to consider many of the same body contouring procedures. Customizing the package for these women looks a lot like a Mommy Makeover, and may include the following procedures:
- A breast lift, a surgery that addresses sagging breasts that are sometimes uneven. Breast volume may be lost and the nipples may droop, pointing downward at the end of pendulous shaped breasts.
- A breast reduction provides relief to women with overly large breasts, whether they are the result of pregnancy or just natural development. Such large breasts can be heavy, leading to chronic pain in the neck, back, and shoulders, as well as other health concerns.
- Tummy tuck surgery, called abdominoplasty, tackles the stretching of the skin, weakened muscles, and leftover deposits of fatty cells in the abdomen. Patients can achieve a flatter abdomen and waist as a result of the removal of excess skin and fat, plus the tightening of the supportive trunk muscles.
- Liposuction surgery, such as that performed with the SmartLipo Triplex technology, can remove unwanted fat cells from various areas of the body, including the breasts, the abdomen, and more. Sometimes, changes in body weight for any reasons can leave behind unwanted pockets of fat. Liposuction is often added to body contouring procedures to boost a patient’s results.
Candidates for the Mommy (or Non-Mommy) Makeover
All of the procedures above can provide benefits to both women who have and have not had children. Good candidates for Mommy Makeover surgeries can be women who are experiencing loose skin and muscles throughout the body, sagging or overly large breasts, and excess fat deposits in unwanted places. The procedures of the Mommy Makeover package are ideal for any woman unhappy with her current body shape, for whatever reason.
Breast enhancement procedures, whether a lift, augmentation, or reduction, were designed to reshape and resize the breasts in various ways, all with the goal of achieving a patient’s ideal results. Tummy tucks and liposuction procedures, similarly, are also aimed at creating the body shape that a patient wants. By toning, trimming, and reshaping the body, these procedures work together in harmony to make improvements to any woman’s body.
Regardless of which procedures are most of interest to you, to be a good candidate you must be in good overall health before your procedure. You should also have realistic expectations for your surgical results. A plastic surgeon can meet with you to discuss and plan your procedure, while also evaluating your eligibility for surgery. Package the procedures that will most help you for a specially targeted and highly effective surgery.
