Mommy Makeover Overview
A Mommy Makeover is a collection of cosmetic enhancement procedures custom-designed to help you restore your pre-pregnancy figure and feel great about the way you look. While having children can be one of life’s greatest gifts, the fact is that pregnancy and child-raising can take an enormous toll on the body. Whether you are experiencing excess fat pockets and inelastic skin that can be very difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise, sagginess and extra skin in the breasts, pre-mature signs of aging in the face, or other common aesthetic conditions, a Mommy Makeover from our plastic surgeon at Richmond Aesthetic Surgery can enhance your appearance with beautiful, natural-looking results.
The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
If you are a mother, you have likely been required to make a number of sacrifices; however, your appearance does not have to be one of them. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of a number of cosmetic enhancement options designed to address the effects that pregnancy and raising children can have on your body. Mommy Makeover procedures can be very beneficial for women who experience:
- A sagging or drooping appearance in the breasts due to excess, inelastic skin
- A loss of volume in the breasts
- Excess skin in the abdominal area
- Fat deposits that can appear in a variety of body areas
- Stretch marks along the abdomen
- Wrinkles and fine lines along the face
Dr. Zemmel will meet with your for an initial consultation to talk about your goals and answer any questions you may have. Together, you and your surgeon will come up with a customized treatment plan with options that can give you a comprehensive Mommy Makeover.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
Mommy Makeover options can often be combined into a single procedure, or spaced out over several appointments. Treatments can include:
It’s very common for new mothers to develop an accumulation of excess skin in the breasts, leading to a drooping or sagging appearance. Breast lift surgery eliminates the extra skin and tightens the remainder for a firmer, more “perky” appearance.
If you have lost volume in the breasts after pregnancy, a breast augmentation may be ideal for your needs. With breast implants, our plastic surgeon can add volume and fullness to the breasts with natural-looking results.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
The abdominal muscles are often stretched and pulled apart during pregnancy, ultimately leading to excess skin laxity in the abdomen that can be impossible to improve with exercise alone. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) pulls these muscles taut and reduces excess skin, giving the abdominal area a firmer, flatter, and more fit look.
Dr. Zemmel performed my breast augmentation and tummy tuck and did a fantastic job! I had 2 kids which left my stomach and breast really hurting. Dr. Zemmel completely rejuvenated my body and I am forever grateful. I would recommend him to anyone!
Pockets of excess fat can often accumulate in areas such as the arms, legs, love handles, abdomen, neck, and elsewhere on the body. Liposuction removes these fat deposits for a more contoured appearance.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
With laser skin resurfacing, you can address a number of issues that you may be experiencing with your skin. These advanced procedures can diminish signs of age, improve areas affected by brown spots and sun damage, and rejuvenate your skin for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Cosmetic Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
Injectable facial rejuvenation treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet, as well as add volume and definition to facial features such as the lips and cheeks. These non-surgical treatments can do wonders for the appearance of your skin and provide you with long-lasting, beautiful results.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Since Mommy Makeovers often involve a number of different procedures, recovery information will depend on the type of options chosen and how many are performed. Our plastic surgeon will give you precise details, regarding what you can expect during recovery once you have decided on your treatment plan.
