Mommy Makeover Specials
You’ve noticed that during pregnancy, your body changed in some unexpected ways. And, while some new moms are lucky enough to bounce back right after delivery, most struggle to regain their pre-baby figure.
Gone are the days where women had babies and were destined to endure life with sagging breast and stomachs. A woman’s body is a miraculous thing–bringing life into the world. Over the course of nine months, your body has endured more than us men ever could! And, as beautiful as giving birth can be, returning to your-pre pregnancy’s body isn’t easy. In fact, for most women, it’s impossible without surgery. It’s normal to develop stretch marks, lose volume in your breasts and retain loose skin that refuses to respond to diet and exercise. A personalized mommy makeover helps new moms regain their pre-baby figure.
Pregnancy puts an overwhelming amount of stress on the stomach. For most women, after childbirth, no amount of diet and exercise will bring them back to their pre-baby body. Tummy tucks are a viable option for most women who aren’t having any more children.
At Silhouette Plastic Surgery, we offer several options to provide you with the results you’re wanting:
- Traditional tummy tuck
- Extended tummy tuck
- Mini tummy tuck
- Reverse tummy tuck
- non-surgical contouring
If you had a c-section, we can either use or remove that incision while performing the operation.
A mommy makeover procedure can include breast enhancement procedures that help you regain a more youthful appearing bustline.
Most women prefer a breast lift with implants. However, this option is totally up to each patient. Just like no two bodies are the same, no two pregnancies are the same. And, certainly no two bodies after pregnancy are the same.
Liposuction is highly effective in removing fat. But, it cannot correct stretch marks acquired during pregnancy. Reversely, a tummy tuck repairs separated abdominal muscles and removes excess skin.
Combining the two procedures together adds definition to the abdomen while accentuating the waist. In addition, a contoured waistline also complements breast procedures that are typically performed during a mommy makeover.
Unfortunately, there’s no miracle product that can completely prevent stretch marks from appearing. A common misconception of stretch marks is that they only appear in the stomach area. This is not true, as stretch marks are able to form on the thighs, hips, breasts and buttocks during pregnancy.
Depending on the location and severity, many procedures performed as part of a mommy makeover can minimize, if not eliminate stretch marks, altogether.
One procedure commonly overlooked is vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty. When performed properly, these can address many physiological changes brought on by pregnancy.
Childbirth can have many effects on the vagina, including changes in skin pigmentation, muscle integrity, and development of excess skin.
California Mommy Makeover Surgery
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover usually involves multiple procedures. It varies from mom to mom, but the typical pattern is to have your stomach tightened as well as a breast procedure. The breast procedure can include a breast lift, a breast augmentation, or a combination of the two.
How Much is a Mommy Makeover?
The major costs associated with a mommy makeover factor in the surgeon's fee, facility fee, anesthesia, post-surgery fees and cost of implants. Depending on what options you select for treatments, your surgery cost will range.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
Mommy makeovers are typically personalized to the specific needs of the patient.
Your mommy makeover can include any of the following:
Since the stomach and breast are the primary areas affected by pregnancy ,a mommy makeover will often center around procedures designed to target these areas.
During pregnancy, a mom's breast can increase a full cup size, if not more. However, after giving birth, breastfeeding, and life, in general, once your breasts return to their regular cup size, this will result in a noticeable sagging and loss in volume.
When Should I Get a Mommy Makeover?
You should wait to schedule your mommy makeover until you're sure you're done having children. If you believe you may want to have another child, at any point, you should hold off on this surgery. You don't want to undo your fabulous results!
Do I Need to Lose Weight Before a Mommy Makeover?
In theory, you should get your mommy makeover when you're at the weight you believe you can happily maintain for the better part of your life.
Are Mommy Makeovers Painful?
Actually, mommy makeovers aren't as painful as you may think! Any surgery can lead to some post-op discomfort. But, most mommy makeovers use a localized numbing agent that will last for three days. This helps patients breeze through the worst part of the recovery period.
How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take?
The duration of the mommy makeover surgery is totally dependent on what procedures you select for your makeover. Most patients can expect for the procedure to take anywhere from 4-6 hours.
What is the Mommy Makeover Recovery Process Like?
We advise most patients to plan for a week of mild discomfort, two weeks until you can return to regular activities-barring strenuous activity, and a month before you're back at 100%.
