The term Mommy Makeover has become a common catch phrase over the last 10 years. It is frequently mentioned on the news, in fashion magazines and splashed across the Internet. Many women, however, are not sure what the words Mommy Makeover are really all about.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is not a single procedure. The term describes a package of operations designed to meet the changes that occur in a woman’s body after she has children. These can include procedures to raise and fill out the breasts, smooth the stomach, and eliminate ugly fatty deposits.
Pregnancy and Childbirth cause a strain on the body. The tissues expand to accommodate a growing child in the womb and the accumulation of breast milk. Added weight will be taken on to promote the development of new life. The added pounds are not only difficult to shed after childbirth; the stretched tissue may be almost impossible to ‘snap back’ into its pre-baby condition.
Every Mommy Makeover is Different:
Every Mommy Makeover can be tailored to the patient’s unique needs. At the consultation appointment with Dr. Vitenas, he will perform a quick physical evaluation, then talk with the patient about his or her hopes and desires. Through this collaboration, a treatment plan will be created, including both surgical and noninvasive procedures, to meet the individual’s aesthetic goals.
Mommy Makeovers can include:
- Breast Augmentation (breast implants)
- Breast Lift
- Tummy Tuck
- Body Lift
- Arm Lift
- Facial Rejuvenation
Is the Mommy Makeover right for you?
If you are in generally good health and fully understand the procedure, you may make an excellent candidate for a Mommy Makeover. Although the procedure does not substitute for weight loss, it tightens and lifts your current body. Keeping that in mind, you will need to commit to a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain the beautiful results of a Mommy Makeover.
