Having children can be one of life’s greatest gifts; however, the physical changes many women go through during pregnancy and child-rearing can be difficult to reverse with diet and exercise alone. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can help you get back to your pre-pregnancy figure with a combination of procedures called a Mommy Makeover. Options such as breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, and more can help recontour your body, rejuvenate your skin, and restore your self-confidence about your appearance. Injectable facial rejuvenation is also offered for women who may see signs of exhaustion, stress, and aging in the face. Cosmetic injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give your facial features a more refreshed look.
What Are the Mommy Makeover Options?
A Mommy Makeover is a grouping of procedures custom-designed for your specific goals. Mommy Makeover treatments can typically be performed in combination as one operation, or in a staged series of treatments. Candidates for Mommy Makeover treatments are typically mothers who are experiencing:
- A sagging or drooping appearance in the breasts due to excess skin and fat deposits
- Excess fat and skin in the abdomen
- Fat deposits in virtually any body area that are resistant to diet and exercise
- Stretch marks
- Signs of premature aging and exhaustion
There are a variety of aesthetic enhancement procedures offered by our experienced plastic surgeon that can reverse these effects and renew your body and skin. Some of the most common treatments included in a Mommy Makeover are:
After pregnancy, women may lose volume in the breasts, causing them to appear smaller. Breast augmentation can effectively address this by adding fullness and new contour to the breasts with saline or silicone gel breast implants. With breast augmentation, you can restore lost volume and enhance the breasts for a fuller, more sensual appearance.
The breasts can take on a sagging appearance after pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, losing their “perkiness” and giving off a more aged look. Breast lift surgery can correct this by removing excess skin and lifting the breasts to a higher position, making them look more firm, smooth, and youthful.
Pregnancy and child-rearing can ultimately result in excess fat deposits appearing in a variety of body areas. These pockets of fat can often be hard to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction can remove excess fat in the abdominal region, love handles, hips, and other areas.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The abdomen is obviously the most noticeable physical change before and after delivery. During pregnancy the muscles in the abdomen are pulled apart, and sometimes permanently separated. Dr. Jon can give you a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) as part of a Mommy Makeover that can pull these muscles taut, remove excess skin, and give you a tighter, firmer abdominal area.
Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
With the physical rigors of pregnancy and raising children, you may experience some changes in your facial aesthetic as well. The formation of extra lines, wrinkles, and creases may give you a tired, stressed appearance that can make you look older than you really are. Injectable facial rejuvenation treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections can smooth out signs of age and stress or add volume to facial features such as the lips and cheeks.
What Should I Expect from Mommy Makeover Recovery?
The Mommy Makeover recovery process will depend on the number and type of procedures you decide to undergo, and whether you have the procedures performed in tandem or staged over a series of visits to our practice. More invasive procedures such as tummy tuck surgery or breast lift can require a recovery period of at least one to three weeks, while less invasive options such as injectable facial rejuvenation typically involve much shorter periods of downtime. Dr. Jon will go over all aspects of the surgery and recovery process with you as you consider which procedures you would like to have as part of your Mommy Makeover.
