A MOMMY MAKEOVER CAN REJUVENATE YOUR POST-PREGNANCY FIGURE

mother and child

Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can permanently alter your figure and affect your confidence. Many women feel frustrated when they look in the mirror and see a loose belly that does not respond to diet and exercise or sagging breasts that were perky in the past. For patients who want to reclaim their pre-pregnancy figures and achieve a firmer, more youthful look, we offer a mommy makeover, which is a customized combination of plastic surgery procedures. A mommy makeover at our Greenwich, CT, practice can reverse the physical toll that pregnancy and childbirth have taken on your body and give you a younger-looking figure and appearance.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Dr. Elsa Raskin can determine your candidacy for this treatment when you come in for an initial consultation at our plastic surgery practice. An ideal candidate should have realistic expectations about the results of a mommy makeover, and should not plan on having any more children. Dr. Raskin will go through your medical records and discuss your aesthetic goals before creating your personalized mommy makeover plan.

Patients should note that a mommy makeover is not a weight loss program, and is not suitable for addressing obesity. In addition, patients who plan on losing a significant amount of weight are not good candidates for this treatment. Ideal candidates will be at a stable weight and in good overall health.

Commonly Combined Procedures

Each mommy makeover is unique and is designed to meet the patient’s individual requirements. Treatment commonly involves breast and body procedures, but can also include other surgeries. Your personalized selections may include options such as:

  • Tummy Tuck - to tighten loose and sagging muscles and skin of the abdomen and the midsection
  • Thigh Lift - to smoothen flabby or loose thighs by removing excess fat and skin
  • Butt Lift - to create a perkier shape and enhance the contours of the buttocks
  • Body Lift - a combination of different procedures including a tummy tuck, a thigh lift, or butt lift, to completely enhance the contours of your body
  • Breast Lift (mastopexy) - to lift sagging or drooping breasts and refine the bust line
  • Breast Augmentation - to augment and enhance the shape and size of your breasts using saline or silicone gel implants
  • Liposuction - to remove fat deposits and refine the shape of your figure
  • Labiaplasty - to address enlarged or elongated labia post pregnancy

These procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia and Dr. Raskin can combine procedures as long as it is safe to do so. Depending on the number of procedures included in your treatment, you may have to undergo one or more surgeries.

Post-surgery Recovery and Benefits

Post-surgery recovery depends on the number and extent of procedures you undergo for the makeover. The day of your surgery you should make arrangements to be driven back home. If you undergo only a tummy tuck or breast procedure, you can expect to take at least one to two weeks off work to recover. A full body lift and different combinations of procedures will increase the amount of recovery time you require. Inflammation, irritation, and pain will subside with time, and you can start experiencing the results of your makeover.

Patients can also experience significant benefits from this procedure. Many women notice a significant boost in their confidence after a mommy makeover, finding they can once again fit into clothes and styles they wore pre-pregnancy. When you feel more confident in your body, you can experience lasting improvements to your quality of life.
