Dr. Randy Proffitt performs a combination procedure called the mommy makeover for Mobile patients looking to restore their pre-pregnancy body. This procedure can achieve a number of aesthetic changes during the course of a single surgical session.
Becoming a mother is a life-changing event. However, even as a woman is experiencing the joy of becoming a new mother, she is also experiencing a number of bodily changes. These changes include excess fat, stretch marks, and sagging breasts. New moms who want to regain their good looks can opt for a mommy makeover.
Your mommy makeover will be customized for your specific issues through the inclusion of several procedures. A number of effective options are available, all of which can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Proffitt.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women lose volume in the breasts. Breast augmentation is a procedure used to restore the size and projection of the breasts. It involves inserting implants into the breasts. Either silicone or saline breast implants can be used.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to lose shape and sag. A breast lift reshapes the breasts, restoring perkiness and eliminating drooping. During the breast lift, excess skin is removed to make the breasts look pert.
For some women, oversized breasts may be an issue after pregnancy and childbirth. Large breasts can cause back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, posture issues, rashes, and more. A breast reduction can eliminate these problems. Excess skin, glandular breast tissue, and fat are removed from the breasts, and the areolae may be resized and/or repositioned.
After giving birth, mothers are often left with pockets of excess stubborn fat. Liposuction is a procedure done to remove excess fatty tissue and contour the body. Fat cells are removed via suction using a tool called a cannula. Liposuction can be used on areas like the thighs, hips, abdomen, back, buttocks, neck, upper arms, and face.
During pregnancy, the muscles of the abdominal wall are stretched. In many cases, this can cause them to separate and sag, resulting in a condition called diastasis recti. Excess fat and skin may also be present on the abdomen after childbirth.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can make the tummy flat by removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal region. The muscles are also rejoined and tightened using internal sutures. Certain stretch marks can also be eliminated using this procedure.
New moms who have excess body fat after childbirth and want to augment the appearance of their rear end may be interested in including a Brazilian butt lift in their mommy makeover. The Brazilian butt lift uses fat taken from the other parts of the body to reshape the buttocks, augmenting volume and enhancing curves.
Women with a sagging rear end after childbirth can benefit from a traditional butt lift. This involves removing excess drooping skin and fat to reshape the buttocks, restoring definition and firmness.
Botox is a well-known injectable neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles to smooth away fine age lines. It can eliminate crow’s feet, chin wrinkles, horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the brows, and harsh vertical neck bands.
Dermal fillers are injectable products that fill in moderate and harsh wrinkles on the face. They can soften the appearance of the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, marionette lines, and more. They can also augment the lips and restore lost cheek volume.
Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment option that rejuvenates weathered and wrinkled skin by removing damaged skin layers. This encourages the formation of new skin layers that look beautiful and fresh.
The Recovery Process
After your mommy makeover, it will be necessary to rest and heal. Physically strenuous activities must be avoided for several weeks, and you will need to take time off from work. There will be a degree of swelling and bruising, which will fade in time. Additionally, during recovery, you may need to wear post-surgical compression garments to help with healing.
Mommy Makeover Cost
The price of your mommy makeover will depend on the procedures chosen to be included. Additionally, techniques utilized and overall surgical time will affect cost.
