MOMMY MAKEOVER TAMPA
Mommy makeover is a term that refers to surgery women undergo after pregnancy. Surgical procedures of the breast, stomach, butt, and legs are the most requested for new moms. With that said, the goal is to create a youthful and tightened body contour. Like the body, you had pre-pregnancy.
MOST COMMON MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURES
A mommy makeover is a combination of individual procedures, and different patients might focus on one area over another. Breast and stomach surgery are two of the most requested and combined surgery procedures.
Dr. Brown has years of experience helping women get their pre-pregnancy shape back. Call our Tampa office today to schedule a consultation and take a step toward getting your mommy makeover!
BREAST AUGMENTATION WITH MOMMY MAKEOVER
The exact procedure can vary, but some goals of breast augmentation are below.
- Restore or add volume
- Increase fullness or cup size
- Get rid of sagging or deflated breasts
- Lift or reshape your areola or nipple
- Add symmetry to your breasts
TUMMY TUCK WITH MOMMY MAKEOVER
Tummy Tuck aims for the following:
- A slimmer and tighter stomach
- Restoring an “hourglass” silhouette
- Getting rid of sagging or excess skin that won’t go away
- Repairing torn muscles during childbirth
- Fitting into the clothes you want to wear
MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURE AND OPTIONS
Every patient has unique concerns. Thus, all their treatment options will be custom-tailored to them. Some women may enjoy the results of a breast lift (Mastopexy). While others may get the best result from a breast augmentation with an implant. Finally, some women may enjoy a combined breast lift with implants to restore volume. Also, this lift repositions the nipple and the breast to the right position.
Likewise, a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is appropriate for some patients. Others may need a mini-tummy tuck and/or liposuction.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
The joys of becoming a mother can come with frustrating changes to your figure. Most women return to a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise, but can’t seem to get their body back. Do you want to restore your youthful shape and figure? If you do, a mommy makeover might be right for you.
There are only a few suggestions for individuals interested in this procedure. If you match these, then you will likely get the most out of a mommy makeover.
- Be in good health (including not smoking)
- At a stable and ideal body weight
- Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
POST-PREGNANCY SURGICAL OPTIONS
A mommy makeover is specific to each woman. After assessing your goals and needs, Dr. Brown will present a custom surgical plan. This includes a combination of some of the procedures below:
WHY GET A MOMMY MAKEOVER
The following have a significant impact on the appearance of your body:
Aging can cause skin to sag or become loose. Pregnancy can have a noticeable effect on your breast tissue and stomach area. Bringing a child to term is hard on your body. The most common change is seen in your abdominal area. Both muscles and skin get stretched out. Returning them to how they were before can be tricky and challenging.
Also, breasts can begin to look deflated, resulting in what is called ptosis. Breast ptosis occurs in varying degrees, but can often have a significant impact on your confidence.
MOMMY MAKEOVER RECOVERY
A mommy makeover surgery can include multiple procedures targeting different areas of the body. Some patients will spend less time recovering. Others might stay overnight at a recovery facility.
Depending on your plan, the mommy makeover surgery may take up to several hours to complete. Multiple procedures mean a more transformative experience, but also more extended downtime. Two weeks is about the average.
TAKE IT SLOW
Dr. Brown recommends that patients pause activity during the initial recovery phase. Giving your body rest and peace will speed up the recovery time. You can gradually increase your activity, according to Dr. Brown’s direction.
Once healed, the final results still take time to appear fully. We discourage any rigorous exercise until at least six weeks after surgery. Your body will continue to adjust day by day. After several months, you will see the full effect of your mommy makeover.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MOMMY MAKEOVER
IS MOMMY MAKEOVER SAFE?
Safety depends on two features: the number of procedures and the skill of the doctor. Dr. Brown is a board-certified surgeon with the training and expertise to perform multiple procedures in one setting.
Any risks decrease when the operation is performed by someone who knows what they are doing. Board-certification, a strong track record, and experience are the top priority. Dr. Brown has all three.
HOW LONG AFTER HAVING MY LAST BABY SHOULD I WAIT TO HAVE A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Dr. Brown recommends that you wait at least a year after childbirth. The first year after delivery can be challenging, and surgery might only make it more so. Many women wait for more than a year.
A good reference point is once your child can walk on their own. After a mommy makeover, you won’t want the strain of carrying them for several weeks. Being a mother is a very physical job, so waiting until things settle down is a good idea.
However, it is a personal decision for each patient. We encourage patients to do as much as they can with diet and exercise. When they get to a point where they can’t see any more results, it’s usually a good sign that it may be time for surgery.
