A mommy makeover refers to various cosmetic treatments that address the effects pregnancy, childbirth, and aging have on your body and look.
The physical changes that occur during your pregnancy may have long-lasting effects, causing excess skin around your abdomen and saggy breasts. Diet and exercise can’t fix these changes, but a mommy makeover at Plastic Surgery Associates of Long Island can.
The Plastic Surgery Associates of Long Island team customizes your mommy makeover to address your specific aesthetic goals. Your mommy makeover may include any of the following procedures:
The rapid changes in your breast size during pregnancy may change the shape of your breasts. During breast augmentation, your plastic surgeon uses breast implants or fat grafting to improve the shape and size of your breasts.
For saggy breasts, the team recommends a breast lift. During this procedure, they remove the excess skin and tighten the supportive breast tissue, lifting your breasts and enhancing your appearance.
Liposuction removes the stubborn fat under your skin, improving contours and proportion. The team may perform liposuction on any part of your body, including your thighs, buttocks, or abdomen.
Childbirth may stretch the labia, which are the external vaginal lips that surround the opening of your vagina. A labiaplasty removes this excess tissue, improving size, shape, and comfort.
Pregnancy and childbirth may also overstretch the tissue in the vagina, causing vaginal laxity. Plastic Surgery Associates of Long Island offers in-office vaginoplasty to tighten the tissue.
Pregnancy stretches the abdominal muscles and skin, making it impossible to restore your flat, firm tummy. A tummy tuck removes the excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles, improving the look and shape of your midsection.
Buttock augmentation enlarges or reshapes the buttocks, improving contours.
When possible, the Plastic Surgery Associates of Long Island team offers mommy makeover packages that include breast surgery, abdominal procedures, and liposuction they perform at the same time.
Recovery from a mommy makeover varies, depending on the type of procedures you have done. Full recovery can take weeks or months.
You can expect some swelling, bruising, and pain and should plan on some downtime. The surgeons may recommend you avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for several weeks, but most patients return to their usual light activities within a couple of weeks.
