In the broadest sense, a Mommy Makeover has come to describe a combination of breast and body contouring procedures that are done at the same time. These include procedures such as: arm contouring, thigh lift, Brazilian Butt Lift, and vaginal rejuvenation. Procedures can be safely performed together to help you achieve your desired results. Mommy Makeover is one of our most popular and frequently performed procedures in the industry. Most women who have been pregnant and breastfed children notice several common body changes. The effects of pregnancy can be seen at any age but tend to be a bit more pronounced with women in their 30’s and 40’s and with multiple pregnancies. Fortunately, the experts at Plastic Surgery Specialists have a number of surgical and non-surgical body contouring options to help you regain your pre-baby body and help restore your self-confidence. Body contouring is the gold-standard, a combination of a liposuction and tummy tuck.

This combination is designed to do three things. First, the tummy tuck repairs separated abdominal muscles that can improve your core strength, flatten your abdomen, and help alleviate low back pain by balancing the tension of the abdominal and back muscles. Secondly, the tummy tuck allows removal of excess abdominal skin that has lost elasticity and is loose and floppy. As a side-benefit, some of our patients have even reported improvements in minor urinary incontinence with the changes that occur with a tummy tuck. No guarantees there ladies, but we hear it often enough to know it’s a thing. Lastly, the liposuction component is used to sculpt and refine those areas of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. CoolSculpting is particularly effective for patients who have isolated trouble spots and are already engaged in a good nutrition and fitness program. Emsculpt is great for augmenting abdominal muscle tone and can also be used to tone the arms, legs, and butt. For both CoolSculpting and Emsculpt, multiple treatment sessions are required, and it takes some time to see the results. Breastfeeding can also create breast issues. Number one, you are happy with your breast volume, but the skin has stretched, and your breasts are now sagging. Number two, your breasts are small, and you want more volume to be in proportion with the rest of your body. Number three, your breasts are too large and are causing symptoms related to neck, back, and shoulder pain. Whatever the symptoms, we will help you find your right fit. We use our Vectra 3D imaging system to simulate breast surgery results so you can see what different sizes and profiles of implants look like on your own body.

The typical areas that we are asked about in consultations are the arms, thighs, and butt. The Renuvion technology provides rapid heating of your body’s collagen that causes shrinking of the collagen and tightening of the skin. Sometimes loose skin is so pronounced that an arm lift or thigh lift procedure may provide a better and more durable result than liposuction. You could also look at getting a Brazilian Butt Lift. If you don’t have quite enough fat to shape your butt, Sculptra injections have proven to be very effective in adding volume and shape to your backside, not to mention they help smooth cellulite and can be done very subtly over time. Doing some Emsculpt sessions can also help round your booty and have you ready to rock that sexy new bikini. And the final subject, the topic of vaginal rejuvenation. This procedure has become very mainstream in the last few years. Our Viveve treatment uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the tightening of the internal vaginal tissue. Viveve is great for tightening tissue laxity, improving or stopping minor bladder leaks, and improving vaginal lubrication. Many of our staff who are Moms have had the Viveve and simply rave about the results! Now that you've read about Mommy Makeover, come see what service we can offer you at Plastic Surgery Specialists.
