The number of women turning to mommy makeovers is on the rise, as more women discover the benefits of plastic surgery to gain back their pre-baby appearance. A mommy makeover is a series of plastic surgery procedures, combined at once. Dr. Ali regularly treats women who are looking regain their appearance and self-confidence once they have finished having children.
Multiple plastic surgery procedures can be used to improve or restore the post-pregnancy body. Typically, a mommy makeover features some combination of a breast lift and/or augmentation, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
The benefit to the patient is that the procedures can be performed during one surgery, meaning there is only one recovery time for the busy mom to contend with.
A mommy makeover is not intended to be a weight loss procedure, so prior to the plastic surgery, the patient should be at or near her ideal weight. It should also not be done until a woman has completed having children, as a subsequent pregnancy will alter the results.
The breasts, abdomen and other areas of the body go through significant changes during and after pregnancy. And when diet and exercise aren’t enough to give the patient back her pre-baby body, Dr. Ali can offer a gorgeous, natural looking option to get back the look you may thought was lost.
As a new mom loses the weight she gained during pregnancy, she may often find that she’s left with excess, sagging skin in the belly area. A tummy tuck is a great way to remove this excess skin, while also tightening the muscles of the tummy that may have become separated during pregnancy. Even with a flat tummy, women may still have separated abdominal muscles that can only be repaired through surgery.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, women may be left with breasts that look much different than they did before. They may be smaller, larger or saggier than before. Women who have had multiple pregnancies or who breastfeed for longer may notice even more significant changes in their breasts. An augmentation and/or lift is a great way to reshape the breast area, giving you increased confidence in the days ahead.
Liposuction can also be added to smooth and contour areas where stubborn fat deposits remain.
The major advantage to a mommy makeover is that they are done in one plastic surgery operation, which means only one recovery time for busy Michigan moms. While the recovery time may be slightly longer than if only one area was worked on, patients love that the recovery periods are combined into one.
Michigan moms love the results Dr. Ali can provide, giving them back their more contoured and confident bodies.
