Mommy Makeover Q & A
Why do women get mommy makeovers?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding change women’s bodies in so many ways. Mommy makeovers address those post-baby body concerns with your breasts, tummy, and leftover fat deposits. The combined procedures target areas on a woman’s postpartum body that have stretched, deflated, weakened, or loosened.
Women get mommy makeovers to improve their figures and feel better about themselves in the process. The treatment helps new moms reclaim their pre-baby breasts, tummies, and thighs. The procedure also addresses diastasis recti or the separation of the ab muscles.
What's included in a mommy makeover?
The effects of pregnancy alter each woman’s figure differently, so the recommended treatment differs for each person. However, mommy makeovers typically incorporate three combined procedures in one session: breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
A breast lift and augmentation help improve the appearance of breasts. The procedure raises the position and fills the volume of the breasts lost by age and childbirth. You may choose to get saline or silicone implants during breast augmentation.
The purpose of a tummy tuck is to remove extra tummy pooch and flatten the belly. Dr. Ku can repair the damage from diastasis recti during the process.
During liposuction, Dr. Ku removes extra fat deposits leftover after pregnancy from the waist, thighs, or back. This process helps move the fat along if it’s resistant to diet and exercise.
Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeovers are for women who want to improve multiple parts of their appearance in one session. For the best results, you should be:
- In good overall health
- At a stable weight, but not obese
- Finished having children
- Relatively young with adequate skin elasticity
What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
Many women get mommy makeovers to improve their appearance. Some people who’ve had the procedure say they look even better afterward than they did before they had kids.
The mommy makeover is desirable because you can get multiple procedures done at once. The combinable nature of breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and liposuction allows you to bypass additional surgeries and follow-up recovery time.
The results are permanent, consistent, and more predictable than non-surgical treatments. You get to enjoy the lifelong benefits, as long as your weight doesn’t change significantly.
