Mommy makeover surgery focuses on the areas of the body most impacted by pregnancy and nursing. While each woman is entirely unique, many mommy makeover procedures will include:
- Transaxillary Breast Augmentation
- Breast Reduction with Liposuction
- Breast Lift
- Tummy Tuck
- Lower Body Lift
During your complimentary mommy makeover consultation, Dr. Shuster will listen to your concerns and assess how motherhood has changed your body to ensure your procedure is designed to produce the desired results.
Maintaining Your Results
Some of the procedures utilized during mommy makeover surgery can produce permanent results. These include tummy tuck surgery, which removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, and liposuction, which eliminates fat deposits throughout the body. In addition, body lift procedures can produce permanent results as well.
Breast surgery, on the other hand, is not always permanent. Most women experience pleasing results with breast surgery for several years, but time and gravity can eventually change the breasts’ firmness, symmetry, and lift. Still, it is typical for results from breast surgery to last for 20 years or more, essentially making them permanent for some women.
It should be noted that while body contouring procedures permanently remove excess skin and fat, they cannot prevent new accumulations from forming. As a result, you may need to adjust your activity level and make slight changes to your diet to maintain your mommy makeover results. These adjustments needn’t be intense or unpleasant. Simply taking daily walks and choosing healthier options for meals may be all it takes to retain the contours achieved through your mommy makeover.
Every Woman is Different
The permanence of mommy makeover results is different for every woman. Many techniques utilized during this procedure can create ideal contours for several years, regardless of individual effort, though others can be impacted by factors both within and beyond your control. Dr. Shuster will help you determine what you can expect from your results and how you can help them last to ensure you are prepared to make the most out of your procedure.
