Mommy Makeover


The after-effects of pregnancy can result in a combination of imperfections such as sagging and deflated breasts, weakened abdominal muscles, loose skin, and the accumulation of fat deposits in various areas of the body. When this happens, many women can begin to feel discouraged about their appearance and long for their pre-pregnancy body. Mommy Makeover surgery is a combination of surgical procedures that can address the undesirable effects that pregnancy leaves behind to help women restore the youthful figure they once had.

Achieved With Mommy Makeover Surgery

Procedure Options


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.

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.

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

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.

Concerns


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.
