Mommy Makeover

Returning To Youth With A Mommy Makeover

Having children can be a wonderful experience but not everyone who has experienced the beauty of childbirth looks great in a two-piece bathing suit. Today’s active mothers may not be content with sagging breasts from breast feeding or a protruding abdomen which frequently occurs after having children.

Abdominoplasty and breast augmentation are so frequently requested by women following pregnancies that the combination of procedures is often referred to as a mommy makeover. Getting themselves back into their pre-pregnancy shape can help women feel more comfortable with their shape and allow them to return to their original body contours. Not only can they get their appearance back, many also realize a resurgence in their self-confidence.

The mommy makeover can get rid of the excess skin caused by stretching of the abdominal muscles and the extra weight from bearing children, as well as lift the breasts into their natural position. For some this may require augmentation while others may wish to undergo a breast reduction.

The Mommy Makeover Involves Different Procedures to Achieve The Desired Results

Procedures such as:

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast Reduction
  • Thigh and buttock lift
  • Skin care

The first phase of a mommy makeover at Wells Plastic Surgery, serving the Lexington and Louisville area, usually begins with a consultation on what the person is looking to achieve. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Wells will offer suggestions as well as realistic expectations on what can be achieved from undergoing the procedures. Professionals at the center will also inform the prospective patient what to expect prior to the procedures being performed, what will be involved during the surgeries and recovery expectations.

Being realistic about the outcome is an important aspect to selecting to undergo the mommy makeover process, while returning to their youthful physical appearance is typically the goal. There are certain precautions the patient will be advised of during consultation, but the dreams of achieving a great look through a mommy makeover can also become a reality when performed by the medical experts at Wells Plastic Surgery.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

The patient will stay overnight following the procedure, with recovery essentially the same as with an Abdominoplasty and breast augmentation. The experience can be positive once the final outcome is achieved and the patient finds their appearance restored and improved by undergoing the mommy makeover. Their appearance and self-confidence can be a life-changing experience for many mothers.
