Today, mothers can rejuvenate their bodies from head to toe. A mommy makeover, which is plastic surgery that combines one or more procedures to help moms after they are finished having children, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. After pregnancy and childbirth, it can be difficult for many women to get their bodies back in shape even with a healthy diet and exercise routine. This body makeover treatment can refresh more than one area at the same time, giving busy moms the added bonus of one surgery and one recovery while reaping the benefits of multiple body contouring procedures.
The board-certified plastic surgeons at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Long Island, NY, are mommy makeover experts. Dr. James Romanelli and Dr. John Layliev are highly regarded plastic surgeons who have helped numerous women get their bodies back. Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery offers mommy makeovers when diet and exercise are no longer providing the aesthetic results that women want. Here is a look at the top mommy makeover procedures and why Long Island moms are feeling good again about how they look.
What is included in a mommy makeover?
A makeover for moms is a combination of one or more plastic surgery options. Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body, and a mommy makeover is specifically designed to address the common issues that most moms face after having children. In most cases, a mommy makeover consists of a breast lift with augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Some women are also including nonsurgical options like BOTOX® or dermal fillers to complete their makeover experience. The mommy makeover catchphrase has made its way into mainstream media these days, and it has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed because this customized experience gives moms precisely what they need.
Top five mommy makeover procedures
From stubborn fat and loose abdominal skin to sagging breasts and loss of volume, a mommy makeover can tackle all the issues a mom faces after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Today, women have a variety of cosmetic options to choose from to restore their post-pregnancy bodies and feel better about their appearance. Here is a look at the top five mommy makeover procedures:
Liposuction: Liposuction is a popular option for moms when fluctuating weight during pregnancy has caused stubborn pockets of fat to settle in certain areas. Liposuction can extract fatty tissue from the stomach, saddlebags, love handles, and various other areas to help reshape a mom’s body.
Breast augmentation: Pregnancy brings on fluctuating hormones and weight, which can dramatically affect the appearance of a woman’s breasts. Most moms choose breast implants to restore their natural breasts in size and shape.
Breast lift: When breast size is not an issue, moms dealing with breasts that droop or sag can turn to a breast lift to correct this issue. A breast lift can restore the breasts to a higher location on the chest.
Abdominoplasty: For apparent reasons, the stomach area is highly vulnerable to changes after pregnancy. A full or mini tummy tuck can tighten abdominal skin (and possibly remove a C-section scar or stretch marks) to give moms a whole new look to their midsection. When necessary, a full tummy tuck can incorporate liposuction to provide moms with a flatter, more toned appearance.
Facial rejuvenation: A lack of sleep and fluctuating hormones can leave a mom’s skin looking dull or flat. More women are choosing to include noninvasive treatments like dermal fillers, BOTOX, and microdermabrasion treatments as part of their mommy makeover. A fresh, new look with facial rejuvenation treatments can boost a mom’s appearance with no downtime required.
Customizing your mommy makeover
Every mom’s experience with pregnancy and childbirth is uniquely different. Following pregnancy, women have different aesthetic goals and motivating factors for wanting to get their bodies back. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery will work closely with each patient to fully customize their mommy makeover experience. It is generally recommended that women wait at least 6 – 12 months after their last pregnancy before considering any plastic surgery. For optimal results, a mom’s body needs to be ready for the complete transformation a mommy makeover can provide. A makeover not only can rejuvenate a mom’s body but also her spirits.
One of the main benefits of a mommy makeover is it can be tailored specifically to what each patient needs. At Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Romanelli and Dr. Layliev provide the highest level of care to women in the Long Island area. They will work with each patient to achieve the aesthetic results they are looking for. Every mom deserves to be pampered, and a mommy makeover could be just what you need.
