BREAST AND ABDOMEN RESHAPING
A “Mommy Makeover” is a term used when discussing the most common combination of surgeries that many women are seeking to help return their figure after one or more pregnancies. But this procedure is not only for Moms! While pregnancy can leave excess skin in the abdomen, weakened muscles of the abdominal wall, and deflate breasts after breast feeding, this combination may also be found in women as they age, especially those with a history of difficult weight management. A “Mommy Makeover” surgery is an individualized procedure to give back abdominal flatness and the breast size and shape you had at a younger, or pre-pregnancy age.
Depending on your particular case, you will likely need a breast lift, with or without implants, and reshaping of your tummy with an abdominoplasty, with or without liposuction.
Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift
In many cases a simple breast augmentation is enough to restore a breast deflated after breast feeding. The insertion of the implants can improve the volume and the shape of the breast.
Breast lifting is indicated in those cases where the excess of skin is not correctible only with volume but a reshaping with external scar is needed. The lifting can be improved with the insertion of implants to gain more volume and stability to the result.
