The mommy makeover procedure is a combination of plastic surgical treatments designed to address physical changes brought about by pregnancy. The most common procedures that are combined for mommy makeover are:
- Breast augmentation to address volume loss and asymmetry in the breasts
- Breast lift to firm and contour the breast mound and improve nipple position
- Liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits from legs, hips, waist, back, arms, neck, and face
- Tummy tuck to address diastasis recti, stretch marks, and excess skin in the abdominal area
Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Panchal may recommend other or additional procedures for your mommy makeover like labiaplasty or ThermaVa to reduce vaginal wall sagging for restored comfort and sexual response. During your initial consultation at one of our Oklahoma City area offices, we can provide you with information about all treatment options and help you plan for those that will best produce the look you desire.
Am I Too Old for a Mommy Makeover?
If changes that your body underwent during pregnancy have failed to correct through diet and exercise, you may be the perfect mommy makeover candidate regardless of age. The truth is, the right age for any plastic surgery procedure is the age you are at when you decide to do it. The surgical options most common in the mommy makeover procedure have been safely and successfully performed on women of various ages.
Young mothers, too, can benefit from this body and breast makeover, but should wait to undergo surgery until they have finished having children. Subsequent pregnancies can exacerbate issues like diastasis recti (the separation of abdominal muscles) and may result in breast sagging, stubborn fat accumulation, and other issues dealt with during your initial procedure. If you become pregnant again, you may need to have another mommy makeover to restore results.
The best candidates for mommy makeover surgery are women who are satisfied with the size of their families who are also:
- In generally good health
- Nonsmokers or willing to quit well in advance of surgery
- Able to take some time off from family responsibilities to recover
- Willing to closely follow pre and postoperative directions
- Realistic about the results mommy makeover can produce
The mommy makeover procedure can produce a better contoured, more defined, and more symmetrical body. It probably won’t make it look as if you never had children.
Dr. Panchal is a board-certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience. He will make every effort to ensure your results look natural, enabling him to enhance your figure without making you look over-done or comically disproportionate. During your initial consultation, you can get a good idea of what these results will look like with the help of the 3D OCULUS Crisalix, a virtual plastic surgery planning tool that allows patients to see how different surgical options will look on their bodies. This allows you to see your results before committing to them and can help in determining which options will best meet your needs.
