Pregnancy and childbirth can be one of life’s most rewarding and beautiful experiences.
But pregnancy can also dramatically change a woman’s body. Many women experience common post pregnancy issues including loose abdominal skin, stretch marks, spider/varicose vein development, weight gain, drooping breasts, and loss of breast volume.
The Mommy Makeover procedure is a fully customized combination of cosmetic treatments that help moms and grandmothers correct common issues that develop due to pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, restoring the body as closely as possible to its pre-childbirth condition. Depending on the specific needs of the patient, Mommy Makeovers may combine several popular treatments including liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, and tummy tuck surgery.
What are the benefits of the Mommy Makeover?
By undergoing multiple procedures in the same time period, Mommy Makeover patients are able to realize many benefits, including decreased recovery time and cost. Depending on the particular surgeries selected, combining surgeries can reduce the total cost by several thousand dollars compared to doing the procedures separately. The cost savings result from reductions in facility costs, surgeon fees, and anesthesia.
Having children doesn't have to mean giving up your youthful body and confidence. The mommy makeover is a careful and appropriate selection of plastic surgery procedures to turn back the clock to pre-children days. The goal of a mommy makeover is for you to look as good as you feel and enjoy your life to the fullest!
What are common procedures during the Mommy Makeover?
LIPOSUCTION: Liposuction consists of contouring the fat that accumulated during pregnancy. It is the easiest procedure to restore your pre-pregnancy curves. With Lipo Dr. Tittle can remove fat in many different areas of the body including the stomach, waist, buttocks, thighs, arms, and neck. Dr. Tittle also specializes in Vaser Liposelection, which has the added benefit of using ultrasound reporting low to minimal pain and bruising.
BREAST LIFT: Breast Lift, or mastopexy, raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue; providing a more youthful, perky appearance. The breast lift procedure can reduce the size of enlarged areola as well.
BREAST AUGMENTATION: Breast Augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast with implants.
TUMMY TUCK: Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that tightens abdominal muscles and gets rid of excess fat and skin; resulting in a flatter, more toned stomach. It also improves the appearance of distorted or stretched out belly buttons by creating a new belly button at the time of surgery.
