Mommy Makeovers Q & A

What are mommy makeovers?

Mommy makeovers are individualized procedures using multiple popular cosmetic surgery techniques. The main goal is to restore your body’s shape after the many changes that come with pregnancy and childbirth. 

During your consultation at Diamond Surgical Institute, you can speak with a highly experienced practitioner regarding your specific goals and the features you want to change. They decide on the techniques to use during your single-stage mommy makeover surgery.

Which procedures are available in mommy makeovers?

There are numerous surgical techniques that work well in a mommy makeover, which can target your abdomen, buttocks, breasts, and other areas that childbearing has impacted. Specific options include:

Liposuction

Liposuction is a fat removal procedure involving a long thin tube called a cannula. Your surgeon loosens the fat through an incision before contouring your body by suctioning it out. You can target your thighs, abdomen, hips, or any other area with excess fat deposits.

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is a highly sought-after procedure that enlarges your breasts by adding implants beneath the skin. Your provider can talk to you about various options for implant sizes and shapes, or about using fat transfer instead. 

Breast lift

Breast lift is a surgical technique to remove some of the excess skin from sagging breasts to elevate them and make them perkier. 

Breast reduction

If childbearing makes your breasts larger than you would prefer them to be, a breast reduction can remove some of the excess fat and glandular tissue to make their size more manageable. It can also correct asymmetrical breasts if one is larger than the other. 

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck is a technique that removes excess fat and skin from your abdominal area to give you a firmer and flatter tummy.

Liposculpture

Liposculpture is similar to liposuction, but it targets smaller areas. The goal is to give you the appearance of having better muscle tone. 

Brazilian butt lift

Brazilian butt lift enhances your buttocks’ shape, size, and proportion. Your surgeon transfers fat from your hips, thighs, lower back, or abdomen into your buttocks. 

What is recovery like after mommy makeovers?

Recovering after a mommy makeover takes time and patience, but the practitioners and staff at Diamond Surgical Institute offer all the support you need. They give you highly specific instructions for self-care as you heal, including the care of the surgical sites. 

You can expect to heal for a couple months after a mommy makeover as the swelling goes down, especially if you get a tummy tuck. You’ll need someone to care for you at home for the first few weeks, but soon you can enjoy the full effect of your personalized mommy makeover. 

A customized mommy makeover can make a major difference for your self-image after childbearing. Consult with Diamond Surgical Institute today by calling the office for an appointment or by booking a visit online.
