Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women want to reclaim their pre-baby bodies.A mommy makeover combines several cosmetic proceduresto make you look leaner, younger, and more vibrant.
Dr. Ken Smart performs mommy makeovers at ourFrisco, TXpractice. Many of our patients askwhat is included in our mommy makeover packages. Each makeover is fully tailored to the unique needs of the individual. Here, we will explore some of the most common procedures included in this comprehensive treatment.
Over time, the breasts can sag. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can exacerbate this issue. A breast lift can raise the breasts to their original positions, offering a more youthful appearance. Keep in mind that a breast lift can only change the position of the breasts; it cannot change their shape or size.
Breast Lift with Implants
Those interested in altering the position as well as the shape and size of their breasts can combine a breast lift with implants. This is a popular option among our Plano mommy makeover patients.
Sometimes pregnancy and nursing can cause the breasts to lose shape and volume. If you only want to enhance the shape and size of your breasts, but do not need to raise their position, breast augmentation is an excellent option. Dr. Smart can talk with you about your implant options so you achieve the personalized results you desire.
Occasionally, women want to reduce the size of their breasts. This procedure makes the body more proportionate by removing excess breast fat and tissue. Breast reduction not only offers cosmetic benefits, but it can also reduce the amount of physical stress on the body. Women who undergo breast reduction report having more confidence and more freedom to participate in activities they enjoy.
Liposuction artistically reshapes certain areas of the body. It can be performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, back, upper arms, chest, face, and more. During this procedure, Dr. Smart breaks up stubborn pockets of fat and removes them using a slim tube called a cannula. Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss procedure, but it can fine tune areas of your body that you wish to improve.
Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess tissue and fat. During the procedure, the abdominal muscles are tightened as well, giving patients a more toned appearance.
In some cases, women can choose to undergo a mini tummy tuck. This less invasive procedure focuses on the lower abdomen and is a viable choice for many women who have been pregnant in the past. Dr. Smart can help you determine which surgical option is right for you.
If you are considering a mommy makeover, be sure you do not plan on having more children. Cosmetic procedures will not make pregnancy a risk, but your results can be negated if you become pregnant again.
