Mommies, You Deserve a Makeover! (part 2)
The breast augmentation part of the mommy makeover helps moms achieve larger, fuller, more symmetrical breasts if they were left with saggy, deflated ones after having kids. Saline or silicone breast implants are used to enlarge the breast size for these patients. Breast augmentation or breast lifts can improve your body proportion, feminine appearance, and self-confidence.
In addition or instead of breast augmentation, some of our clients choose to undergo a breast lift. Breast lift surgery lifts and reshape sagging breasts by tightening loose tissue. At the same time, the areola size can be reduced. It’s very common to do a breast lift with a breast augmentation to restore breast volume as well.
The tummy tuck is the part of the mommy makeover that addresses a protruding tummy and stretched out abdominal muscles. During the procedure skin from the abdominal area are removed, leaving behind a tighter, more toned tummy. In addition to the tummy tuck, liposuction can be used to target fat deposits that are stubborn and resistant to exercise and dietary changes. We often use liposuction during our mommy makeovers in Boston to help slim down specific areas of the body.
Last but certainly not least, many women are not thrilled that their labia have changed with age or due to childbirth or other issues. Many people are surprised that it is more of a common concern than they think. A labiaplasty is a relatively simple operation that can make a woman’s genitals look younger.
Because it is a combined procedure of breast and body contouring, a mommy makeover involve more downtime than a single procedure. We advise all our Boston plastic surgery clients to recruit some help at home for about one week after surgery. Complete recovery typically requires several weeks. As with most cosmetic procedures, it may take about six months or even a year to appreciate the final results of your mommy makeover.
