A Mommy Makeover might seem like an enormous undertaking due to the combination of plastic surgery techniques involved in the process. Details aside, this treatment can be one of the most rewarding for any woman. Why? Because it is the only for some women to get back the confidence they have lost in their appearance.
By customizing procedures to a woman’s overall shape and her desired outcome, Dr. D’Amico helps our Englewood, NJ patients maximize their physique. Some of the ways a Mommy Makeover can do this is by:
Enhancing the Breasts
The two breast-enhancing techniques that may be considered or even combined during a Mommy Makeover are breast augmentation and breast lift.
Breast augmentation is an excellent method of restoring fullness after breast tissue has deflated as a result of breastfeeding, weight changes, and age. Augmentation may be achieved with saline or silicone implants selected specifically for the patient’s frame and body-type.
Breast lift surgery addressing the sagging and elongation that may occur in motherhood. Where tissue sags, nipples tend to point downward. A breast lift removes excess tissue and uplifts the breasts so nipples point straight ahead, giving them a perkier appearance.
Enhancing the Body
The body can be restored to beautiful contours through one of two procedures within the Mommy Makeover:
Liposuction is the fat-reducing procedure that can address stubborn fat cells just about anywhere on the body. Liposuction during a Mommy Makeover is not limited to the midsection, although that is a common body-part requested. This procedure can also be performed on the thighs, buttocks, hips, back, or backs of the arms as desired to bring out the best in body proportion.
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is almost always involved in a Mommy Makeover. This is where the magic happens, where stretch marks and loose, saggy skin can be significantly reduced, if not completely eliminated. A tummy tuck reinstates muscle structure after severe stretching or displacement. Ultimately, this is the technique that restores the midsection to its toned condition.
