What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a popular procedure for women that provides a range of benefits and positive results from different procedures, all achieved in one surgical session. Benefits will vary from patient to patient depending on which procedures they choose for their customized mommy makeover procedure.
General mommy makeover benefits generally include the following:
- A more youthful physique that restores the pre-pregnancy figure
- A curvy, appealing, feminine figure
- A flatter, tighter abdomen and sculpted waist
- More shapely, lifted, symmetrical, and attractive breasts
- Overall physical enhancement and revitalization
- Reduced anesthesia time, as multiple procedures are performed in one session
- Reduced overall downtime, as the recovery period for multiple surgeries is done at once
Am I the Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Most women are prepared for the changes that their body will go through during pregnancy—the weight gain, the larger breasts, the dreaded stretch marks—yet most of us are shocked and surprised when we realize that the body simply isn’t going to pop right back into shape once the pregnancy is over. Unfortunately, even with an excellent diet and regular exercise, some areas of the body prove frustratingly resistant to recovery from the physical toll of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. If you are at or close to your ideal weight and are not considering any additional pregnancies, but are still frustrated by unappealing aesthetic changes to your body, you may be a candidate for a Mommy Makeover!
Your Mommy Makeover Consultation
During your initial consultation, Dr. Sundin will conduct a thorough medical assessment to ascertain your physical health, determine the root cause(s) of your aesthetic concerns, and learn about your personal cosmetic goals. You’ll also have the chance to ask any questions that you might have for Dr. Sundin. He will then work together with you to develop a custom-tailored treatment plan involving the surgical procedures most appropriate for achieving the shapely, contoured figure you want. He may also recommend additional non-surgical procedures to help with scar reduction and skin tightening.
The specific details of your Mommy Makeover, as well as the pre- and post-operative instructions and information about the potential for surgical risks and complications, will depend on the procedures you select, the extent of required surgical correction, and your body’s unique healing capacity. Each patient is different, so each treatment plan is highly unique and customized. Well in advance of your surgery, you’ll be given a thorough understanding of what you can expect from your procedure, along with detailed aftercare instructions and a thorough timeline.
Addressing Your Personal “Problem Zones”
The mommy makeover is a highly customizable combination of surgical procedures (and potentially non-surgical ancillary treatments) that will be performed simultaneously. Not only does this address each of your “problem areas” in a single procedure, but it will also reduce the need for multiple healing periods. Your mommy makeover in Richmond, Northern Virginia with our team will be completely unique and tailored to your needs, with the exact combination of procedures depending on your unique concerns and aesthetic goals. Most mommy makeovers include some combination of the following procedures.
One of the most popular surgeries in the country, breast augmentation increases the size of your breasts to replace the natural volume loss that can come as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding, through the use of customizable breast implants.
Some patients experience drooping and sagging after breastfeeding. This procedure lifts and tightens your breast tissue to correct sagging and drooping, so you can enjoy a more pert bust and a generally more pleasing bust and body silhouette.
Breast Augmentation and Lift
This dual procedure works to simultaneously lift drooping breast tissue and reduce the presence of excess skin, while also working to add perfectly-sized implants that will increase your breast size and volume, for your ideal bust.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Childbirth can have a significant impact on an individual’s midsection. The tummy tuck targets excess fatty tissue; corrects weak, damaged abdominal musculature; and reduces stretched and sagging skin for a flatter, more contoured abdomen.
If pregnancy has left you with excess deposits of fatty tissue, liposuction can help. This procedure reduces bulges, “love handles,” and other unwanted curves in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and other areas for a more sculpted figure.
Keeping You Comfortable with Extensive Experience
The surgical procedures usually included in a Mommy Makeover are safer, more comfortable, and more effective than in previous years, but as with all surgical procedures, they require a high degree of expertise, precision, and accuracy to ensure naturally-beautiful results while minimizing discomfort and the potential for surgical risk and complications.
In addition to offering patients their combined 30 years of experience and expertise, board-certified brothers Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin remain committed to the most cutting-edge technology available. Your procedure will be carried out in a state-of-the-art environment, and you’ll be cared for by a team of passionate professionals.
