Achieved With Mommy Makeover Surgery

  • Youthful Contours

    The older we get, the more changes our bodies experience that can make a person look and feel older than they are. Mommy Makeover surgery can sculpt and refine the contours of your body to provide you with a more youthful figure.

  • A Slimmer Appearance

    After pregnancy or significant weight loss, excess fat deposits can remain in hard to reach areas of your body and can be difficult to get rid of. Mommy Makeover surgery can address this issue by removing stubborn fat to give you a slimmer appearance.

  • Enhanced Self-Esteem

    Sagging breasts or a protruding belly can make a woman feel insecure about her figure. Mommy Makeover surgery will not only restore the body to its once youthful shape, but it can also provide you with a boost in self-confidence.

Procedure Options

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to restore fullness to the breasts while also improving the size and shape to produce a more balanced and feminine figure.

There are different breast augmentation incision techniques available. These include periareolar (around the areola), transaxillary (in the armpit), and inframammary (in the breast crease). Through the chosen incision, Dr. Reichner creates a tissue pocket and then inserts the implant. Incisions are then closed with stitches.

Dr. Reichner does not offer the transaxillary option when performing a breast augmentation because it has a higher degree of implant malposition.

Breast Lift

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to develop loose, sagging skin, making them droop and look deflated. Breast lift surgery is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat while lifting the breasts to a more youthful position. This procedure can also be performed alongside breast augmentation.

Just like with breast augmentation, many breast lift incision techniques can be performed. These include donut (two circles around the areola), lollipop (a circle around the areola and a vertical line down to the crease), and inverted-T (a lollipop incision with a curving line across the length of the crease). After the breasts are reshaped, the incisions are sealed using dissolvable stitches.

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, can repair a weak and protruding stomach caused by pregnancy and weight fluctuations. This procedure tightens and rejoins the abdominal muscles while also removing excess skin and fat to restore definition and contour the tummy.

The incision for this technique is made low across the abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and is curved so as to be hidden under the bikini line. A second incision may be made around the bellybutton to provide greater access. After the tissues are tightened and the abdomen is contoured, these incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures.

Liposuction

After pregnancy and childbirth, many women may begin to notice stubborn fat deposits that are very difficult to target even with a strict diet and exercise. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from the arms, back, abdomen, hips, and thighs to help boost a woman’s self-esteem and can be combined with tummy tuck surgery to eliminate stubborn fat.

During liposuction, Dr. Reichner makes a small incision in the treatment area. A thin hollow tube called a cannula is inserted and used to loosen stubborn fat from the surrounding tissues. The fat is suctioned out of the body using vacuum pressure.

Concerns

  • Recovery
  • Scars
  • Pain
  • Following your Mommy Makeover surgery, patients will need someone to drive them home and will require assistance for 24 to 48 hours. Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve within a few weeks. Most patients will feel comfortable resuming their normal activities after two weeks. Make sure to avoid all strenuous activities and exercises for at least six weeks.

  • Depending on the number of procedures you have undergone, some scarring may be present. Incisions are made in inconspicuous locations and can be hidden underneath clothing as the scars continue to fade over time.

  • Although some discomfort is expected after your procedure, this can be controlled with pain medication that will be prescribed to you by Dr. Reichner.
