What Goes Into a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover Scottsdale

Having a child is a turning point in a woman’s life. Although mothers gladly make sacrifices for the sake of their children, mothers also deserve to have a positive self-image. A mommy makeover is a customizable procedure or set of procedures that can help women reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies. If you’re ready to take some time for yourself, you can talk to Dr. Geoghegan about the procedures that may be right for you.

Tummy Tuck
Plastic surgeons often perform tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties, on mothers who are having mommy makeovers. Pregnancy causes extensive stretching of the abdominal muscles and connective tissues. After giving birth, women often try exercise to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. Unfortunately, sit-ups and crunches cannot reconnect separated abdominal muscles. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Geoghegan tightens the connective tissues, repairs the abdominal muscles, and creates a sleek silhouette.

Liposuction is often performed along with a tummy tuck. Dr. Geoghegan can remove excess fat from the abdominal area; however, liposuction is not intended to be a primary method of weight loss. Liposuction can also help target stubborn fat in areas such as the hips, thighs, buttocks, and even the chin.

Breast Lift
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is not the same as a breast reduction or augmentation. However, it may be performed along with reduction or augmentation. After giving birth, many women become dissatisfied with the appearance of sagging or stretched breasts. During a breast lift, Dr. Geoghegan repositions and reshapes the tissues, and removes excess skin. The result is a youthful profile.

Breast Reduction or Augmentation
After pregnancy, women may become dissatisfied with lost breast volume and may choose to increase breast size with implants. In some mothers, the breasts swell considerably during pregnancy, which may cause pain and poor posture. These women may be good candidates for breast reduction surgery.
