A mommy makeover can restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state when issues like sagging breasts, excess skin, and stubborn fat deposits become difficult to improve through diet and exercise alone. Our mommy makeover at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa can be performed as a single surgery or a combination of procedures based on your needs and goals.
The results of a mommy makeover are life-changing, but it is important to understand what to expect during and after the procedure. Below, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters takes a closer look at how your appearance will change after body contouring. Call our office in New Orleans, LA if you have questions about the process or want to schedule a consultation appointment.
How Does Pregnancy Affect Your Body?
Pregnancy takes a toll on your whole body, but some areas are affected more than others. Common changes that occur during pregnancy include:
- Deflated or sagging breasts: Nursing causes the breasts to lose volume and sag downward.
- Extended abdominal skin: The added weight of pregnancy stretches out the abdominal skin, which may not return to its original state after childbirth.
- Excess fat deposits: Hormone changes during pregnancy lead to stubborn fat deposits in areas like the abdomen, flanks, and back.
Does Mommy Makeover Surgery Address All of These Issues?
A mommy makeover can manage all of the above issues, plus any similar concerns you may have. During a consultation with Dr. Walters, we will evaluate your problem areas and discuss which body contouring procedures are best for your goals. We generally recommend breast implants and lift surgery to improve the breasts, while a tummy tuck removes loose skin and stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen.
Additionally, many women also opt for liposuction to target problem areas, like the back, flanks, and thighs. Dr. Walters can take excess fat from these areas and use it to improve other places, like the breasts and buttocks.
What Do Mommy Makeover Results Look Like?
The results of mommy makeover surgery vary between patients because procedures are personalized to each individual. However, you can expect positive changes in your overall appearance. For example, your breasts will be fuller and more lifted, while your midsection may appear slimmer and toned.
Some results are almost immediately visible after surgery, while others take time to develop. For example, it may take a few months for the swelling to subside around the abdomen and breasts. Our recovery instructions will help manage any discomfort and speed up the healing process.
Many women do feel an increase in self-confidence and body satisfaction soon after their procedures. It can be gratifying to see your body return to its pre-pregnancy state or even better than before. Dr. Walters and our team will set expectations and ensure you are happy with results.
