Mommy Makeover Q & A
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that provide a full-body contour. Most women choose:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Liposuction of the abdomen
Some women may also want to sculpt the thighs, arms, and hips, and they can use liposuction to achieve their desired results.
What should I expect during a mommy makeover?
Depending on your cosmetic goals, your mommy makeover at Sam W Huddleston IV MD PC may involve the following:
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that takes care of the excess skin and restores the weakened or separated muscles in the stomach. The abdominoplasty may also eliminate some stretch marks if they are in the right location. Tummy tucks are an outpatient procedure and recovery time usually takes around 4-6 weeks.
For stubborn fat around the abdomen and flanks, liposuction can easily reduce bulges and smooth out the contour of the body. Liposuction is done as an outpatient procedure at Sam W Huddleston IV MD PC and has a very minimal recovery period of about 1-2 weeks
Breast Augmentation with or without Mastopexy (Breast Lift )
Breast implants add volume, while a breast lift gives your breasts a youthful, perky appearance. If your breasts are deflated, breast implants can be inserted into the breast providing much-needed fullness. If sagging is also present, adding the additional lift will bring the nipple back to the correct position in the middle of the breast and give the breasts a round, firm shape. Both procedures are outpatient and recovery time is about 2-4 weeks.
If your breasts have enlarged and are causing you back and neck pain, a breast reduction may be exactly what you need. The excess fat is removed and the breast is reshaped to create the desired look for the patient. Breast reductions can be done as an outpatient procedure at Sam W Huddleston IV MD PC and recovery time is as short as 1-2 weeks.
How long do results from a mommy makeover last?
Your results can last a lifetime. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is essential for long-lasting results. Certain things may change your body, such as having another baby or gaining weight, so make sure you are finished having children and can keep your weight at a stable level before you have a mommy makeover. Your whole body will be looking slim and firm and you will be happy in and out of your clothes.
