Mommy makeover

NEAMAN PLASTIC SURGERY | SALEM, CORVALLIS, EUGENE, + PORTLAND, OREGON

The mommy makeover, or mommy surgery, is a highly tailored surgery that usually involves a tummy tuck and breast procedure. However, since every mommy is unique, every mommy makeover is customized. This popular post-partum procedure can also include a thigh lift, butt augmentation, upper arm lift, and liposuction in various areas. Pregnancy and childbirth, followed by weight loss after childbirth, can do a number on your body. Few moms have the time to commit to hours in the gym to restore their body—and even if they did, the stretched and saggy skin post-pregnancy cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone.

If you’re considering a mommy makeover, ask yourself what you’d like to change. There are a number of body shaping and contouring procedures available at Neaman Plastic Surgery.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE IN A BODY LIFT AND ABDOMINOPLASTY?

A body lift usually focuses on the lower half of the body, while a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) focuses solely on the belly area. However, the two are often combined.

USING LIPOSUCTION DURING TUMMY TUCK SURGERY

Liposuction is often used in conjunction with a number of surgeries including a tummy tuck and mommy makeover. It permanently removes pockets of fat to help in body contouring.

LIPOSUCTION VERSUS TUMMY TUCK SURGERY

Liposuction is fat removal while a tummy tuck is the removal of excess belly skin often combined with fat removal. It’s rare for a tummy tuck not to include liposuction.

BREAST IMPLANT PLACEMENT

A major perk of a mommy makeover is the restoration of full breasts. However, there are options for both breast size and placement. Placement is either below or above the chest muscles, and placement below the muscles offers a more natural appearance with more upper volume.

BREAST IMPLANT INCISION TYPES

There are three major incision types for breast implants, and they will be dictated based on the patient body and desired breast implant size. However, all incisions can be hidden and are very discreet.

MAMMOGRAMS AND BREAST AUGMENTATION

Patients can still have mammograms after getting breast implants. Special techniques and tools are required, but OBGYN clinics are highly adept at working with breast augmentation patients.

MINI TUMMY TUCK VS. FULL TUMMY TUCK

Most tummy tuck patients receive a full tummy tuck—only one percent of patients are candidates for a mini tuck. Mini tummy tucks focus on ab contouring to remove skin and tighten post-pregnancy muscles exclusively around the bellybutton.

TECHNIQUES FOR BUTTOCK REJUVENATION

Three butt rejuvenation procedures are available including the Brazilian Butt Lift (which injects your own fat into the buttocks), circumferential abdominoplasty with butt augmentation (a tummy tuck with butt implants), and buttock implants. You can find out more about these procedures during a consultation.

TUMMY TUCK RECOVERY TIME

Every tummy tuck and mommy makeover recovery time varies, although the base recovery is usually 2-3 weeks.

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY

Breast reconstruction may or may not include implants depending on the patient’s goals. There are benefits to every type of reconstruction, which are discussed during consultations.

BREAST IMPLANT TYPES FOR A BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY

The two major types of breast implants are saline and silicone. Each have different benefits, such as silicone feeling most natural and saline being a natural resource in the body. Discover more during your consultation.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A MOMMY MAKEOVER SURGERY?

A mommy makeover is as unique as the mommy herself. It usually focuses on the tummy and breasts, but you can customize this procedure to suit your goals.
