Although having children can be one of the greatest gifts life has to offer, the physical effects of pregnancy can take a lasting toll on your body. A Mommy Makeover is designed to address a number of body issues at once, including stretching of the abdominal skin, breast sagginess, and fat deposits. Plastic surgeon Andrew Cohen, MD can help you recontour and rejuvenate your appearance, giving you a refreshed look and an improved self-esteem.
Mommy Makeover Candidates
- Reduce the appearance of sagginess and droopiness in the breasts
- Get rid of excess fat in virtually any area of the body
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- Tighten the skin of the midsection and reduce the appearance of excess skin folds
Our cosmetic plastic surgeon will go over your options in detail at your initial consultation, and help you decide which procedures may be the best to achieve your individual goals.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
Some of the most common procedures used in a Mommy Makeover are those that have proven to give patients the most effective, natural-looking rejuvenation.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Pregnancy often causes the muscles in the abdomen to stretch and pull apart, ultimately resulting in a lax appearance to the midsection. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can lift the skin of the abdomen and tighten the muscles, eliminating excess skin and pulling the remaining skin taut. This leads to a more toned, flatter stomach area.
Excess fat deposits in just about any area of the body are common after pregnancy. These areas of fat can be extremely difficult to get rid of, even with rigorous diet and exercise. Liposuction is an excellent option to include in a Mommy Makeover, allowing Dr. Andrew Cohen to eliminate excess fat for a more contoured appearance.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Breast augmentation with implants adds fullness to the bustline and can give your breasts a more youthful, sensual aesthetic. Dr. Andrew Cohen offers a variety of types, sizes, and shapes of implants to provide you with the contoured appearance you desire.
One of the most common areas of the body to be affected by pregnancy are the breasts, which often exhibit signs of sagginess and excess fat and skin folds. A breast lift addresses these effects by tightening the skin and lifting the breasts and nipples to a higher position for a more youthful, “perkier” appearance.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Mommy Makeover recovery times and details will vary depending on the number and type of procedures you undergo; however, you should expect a certain amount of bruising and swelling after the procedure. Any pain and discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Dr. Andrew Cohen can provide more specific details on recovery while discussing your Mommy Makeover options with you at the initial consultation, or you can contact our office with questions.
