What is a Mommy Makeover?
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women find that their bodies look very different. As thrilled as they are with their children, these mothers are often not so thrilled with the stubborn fat, skin laxity, cellulite, stretch marks, and sagging breasts that remain. Luckily, Dr. Lewis provides a Mommy Makeover to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy appearance.
A Mommy Makeover with Dr. Lewis is a customized series of procedures that target the specific areas of concern of each individual patient. Some surgeries can be performed concurrently, such as liposuction and a tummy tuck. Others must be done separately, allowing your body time to recuperate in between the procedures.
Typical Mommy Makeover procedures include:
Liposuction – This surgical procedure suctions excess localized fat from areas of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise. Read more about liposuction.
Tummy Tuck – A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen to firm and tone this area when it does not reduce from diet and exercise efforts. Read more about abdominoplasty.
Brazilian Butt Lift – In this surgery, donor fat is removed from areas with excess, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and back. That fat is then injected into the buttocks for a rounder contour. Read more about the Brazilian butt lift.
Breast Lift – When the breasts sag after pregnancy and breastfeeding, a breast lift can raise them to a perkier position. Read more about breast lifts.
Breast Implants – Some women find that their breasts have deflated after breastfeeding, or they simply want to increase the size of their breasts as part of their makeover. Breast augmentation can be performed separate from or in conjunction with a breast lift. Read more about breast implants.
