Mommy Makeover – What’s your excuse?
By Michael L. Thornton DO FACOS
Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center
Due to the physical challenges and effects of pregnancy, the goal of a mommy makeover is to restore your body to your pre-pregnancy days, by combining both a tummy tuck with cosmetic breast enhancement and restoration surgery.
Following pregnancy, many women develop laxity and weakness of their lower abdomen (“pooch”) along with the development of stretch marks with loose and flabby skin. Along with changes to the abdomen, the breasts undergo fluctuations in size due to lactation-induced enlargement followed by deflation and atrophy, thus causing breasts to fall and lose their overall shape and volume. The “mommy makeover” is the perfect procedure that can accomplish both goals!
Both the tummy tuck and breast restoration procedures are performed under general anesthesia and are performed in an outpatient setting. On average, both tummy tuck procedure and breast enhancement procedure can be performed at the same time as a single-staged operation. However, clients with more complex anatomy and figure distortion may require a two-stage operation–usually with several weeks between procedures. This determination will be made on an individual basis.
