One of the most popular procedures at our Newport Beach plastic surgery offices is the mommy makeover. The procedure is quickly gaining popularity, as more and more women seek to regain their youthful bodies post pregnancy.
Introduction to Mommy Makeovers
The term “mommy makeover” is not actually the name of a specific procedure. Rather, it is the name of a team of complementary procedures that are all designed to provide a more youthful, pre-pregnancy body. The Newport Beach mommy makeover specifically targets the areas of the body that are most affected by pregnancy, which are traditionally:
These are the two areas that tend to change the most after pregnancy. Other areas of the body, such as the inner thighs, back, and buttocks may also be affected by weight gain and body changes, but the stomach and breasts often have noticeable changes after pregnancy. That is why the two primary components of the mommy makeover are breast enhancements and tummy tucks.
Where Did Mommy Makeovers Come From?
Cosmetic surgery has always provided a variety of individual services for women that were looking to regain their former, pre-pregnancy bodies. For years, women would come in for breast implants, tummy tucks, and other procedures after giving birth when diet and exercise alone were not working. Many women found themselves coming in for one procedure, then back for another procedure to target a part of their body the first procedure did not cover, etc.
Eventually, the world of cosmetic surgery started to notice a trend, and found that it would be both easier and potentially safer to complete all of the procedures together, since each one is complementary and can help achieve a better overall look. Eventually the “Mommy Makeover” was born.
Each procedure targets a specific area of the body. While these procedures have been performed millions of times, not all surgeons are created equal, and it’s important that you seek out a trained Newport Beach Mommy Makeoverplastic surgeon with experience and skill in each area of the procedures.
Tummy Tucks – Tummy Tucks require a very steady hand, and a surgeon that understand show to craft a beautiful stomach. Excess skin and fat is removed, the walls of the abdomen are tightened, and the stomach is shaped to help provide a natural “flat stomach” appearance.
Breast Enhancement – Between breast lifts and breast augmentation, there are a lot of options for the surgeon and the patient. The breasts are by far one of the parts of the body most affected by pregnancy, especially once you stop producing, and so a breast enhancement to bring back a youthful shape becomes an important part of the mommy makeover procedure.
Other – Remember, “Mommy Makeover” is simply a term used to describe an overall combination of procedures to bring back the pre-pregnancy look. So you and your surgeon may discuss complementary procedures to add to the overall look. For example, liposuction may be used in the buttocks and thighs so that your body looks a bit more natural after the tummy tuck. These are all decisions that will be made between you and your surgical partner.
