The mommy makeover is a series of procedures that restore a youthful appearance in the body and breasts. Moms everywhere know that pregnancy can bring unwanted changes in the body. Many are bothered by sagging, stretched-out skin and stubborn fat. Fortunately, plastic surgeons have ways to address these problems and restore your beautiful figure.
If you're a mom and looking to improve your appearance, the mommy makeover with Dr. Ku may be right for you. In some cases, patients say their appearance is even better than it had been before childbirth.
The Procedures: What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Every patient's body is unique. Pregnancy also changes each woman's body in a different way. Therefore, the mommy makeover is always customized to meet each patient's goals. During a consultation with Dr. Ku, you'll form a plan for surgery that will address your particular needs.
The mommy makeover package often includes procedures like:
The combination of these procedures can produce a dramatic improvement in your overall body shape. Before your mommy makeover, you should be healthy, realistic about the outcome and motivated to improve your appearance.
Breast Augmentation with Saline or Silicone Implants
Breast enhancement is often beneficial for mothers who have lost breast volume or loss of youthful breast position. Breast augmentation uses a saline or silicone filled breast implant, placed above or below the chest muscle. The breast implant is centered below the nipple and the incisions are covered with sutures and adhesive or tape. A breast lift involves removal of loose skin and glandular tissue, which tightens the tissue and elevates the breasts.
Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty
A tummy tuck flattens the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. The procedure also restores weakened or separated abdominal muscles. Mothers often try very hard to achieve a flat and well-toned abdomen. For many women, this is very difficult or even impossible without tummy tuck surgery.
Fat Removal with Liposuction
Liposuction is ideal for removing persistent fat deposits, which do not respond to physical fitness or a healthy diet. The best candidates are relatively young, with good skin elasticity, and a stable body weight. Those who are obese are not considered candidates for liposuction.
