Surgeries Included in Mommy Makeovers
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take their toll on a woman’s body, particularly her breasts. Breasts may become less full and the tissue may lose its elasticity, resulting in tissue that sags and hangs lower than it did before having children. There are three common types of breast surgeries that may be considered during a Mommy Makeover:
- Breast augmentation: designed to restore shape and fullness
- Breast lift: designed to lift sagging breasts
- Breast reduction: designed to remove excess breast tissue
You can share your concerns about your breasts during your consultation with Dr. Swail, and he will work with you to come up with a surgical plan that will work best for your needs.
The human body is amazing in its ability to adapt to certain circumstances. A woman who normally has a 30-inch waist may see that measurement creep closer to 50 inches as she gets closer to delivery. While this is an amazing part of pregnancy, it often results in stretch marks, loose, sagging skin in the midsection, and overstretched abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is often included in a Mommy Makeover to address these concerns. There are three primary types of tummy tucks, including:
- Mini-tummy tuck: tightens loose muscles in the lower abdomen and removes excess skin below the belly button
- Full tummy tuck: tightens loose muscles in the upper and lower abdomen and removes excess skin from above and below the belly button
- Extended tummy tuck: tightens loose muscles throughout the entire abdomen and removes excess skin from the flanks, as well as above and below the belly button
The type of tummy tuck that Dr. Swail recommends will take your body composition and your individual concerns into consideration in order to deliver optimal post-surgical results.
After having one or more children, women often struggle with excess fat deposits around their abdomen, thighs, and hips. Some of these fat deposits are so stubborn that not even a healthy diet and moderate exercise can get rid of them. Liposuction offers a surgical solution for women who are unhappy with baby weight that just won’t budge, as it is breaks up and removes deposits of fat. During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Swail will remove excess fat and he will sculpt and contour the area of concern to restore a flatter, more youthful appearance. If you would like to learn more about this procedure, our surgical team is happy to speak with you about the procedure and the recovery involved.
