Each mommy makeover is unique and a variety of cosmetic issues following pregnancy can be addressed with this procedure. Find out what Dr. Casper can do to help you restore your pre-pregnancy body or to improve upon it. He will be happy to answer any questions you have about this innovative combination approach to restoring your figure and boosting your feelings of confidence and self-esteem.
Revealing your body in bikini or tight-fitting clothing does not have to be sacrificed after becoming a mother. Your initial consultation is the first step to learning how you too can enjoy the result this life-changing procedure. The procedure that may be part of your custom makeover include:
Excess fat and skin can accumulate in the breasts after pregnancy, leaving them looking saggy, droopy, or deflated. A breast lift removes and tightens skin and restores the breasts to a youthful position on the chest wall, so they once again appear youthful, plump, and perky.
New moms may experience a loss of breast volume and contour after pregnancy. Breast augmentation with implants can restore your breasts so they look lovely and rounded. Dr. Casper can effectively address loss of volume and firmness by adding fullness to the breasts, making them well-proportioned and attractive, restoring your figure.
Breast reduction is a crucial component of the mommy makeover procedure. This surgery not only addresses physical discomfort and pain associated with overly large breasts but also helps restore a more youthful, proportionate appearance. By reducing breast volume and lifting the breasts, mothers can regain confidence, ease their daily activities, and achieve a well-balanced, harmonious silhouette as part of their comprehensive post-pregnancy transformation.
One of the most noticeable changes to your body during and after pregnancy is, of course, the abdomen. While you are pregnant, the stomach muscles are stretched and may appear split, impossible to re-tighten through exercise and diet. A tummy tuck not only pulls the abdominal muscles taut; it also removes loose, excess skin and gives the abdomen a tighter, more fit-looking appearance.
After pregnancy, there may be excess fatty deposits that accumulate in a variety of areas that are resistant to traditional weight loss methods. Tumescent liposuction will reduce these pockets of fat to restore a trimmer, sculpted look.
A mommy makeover is a comprehensive set of cosmetic procedures designed to address multiple physical changes that often result from pregnancy, childbirth, and the natural aging process. This transformative combination of surgeries can effectively treat a range of conditions, helping individuals restore their pre-pregnancy or youthful appearance.
One of the primary concerns treated by a mommy makeover is the infamous "tummy pooch" or abdominal bulge. This condition is characterized by stretched abdominal muscles and excess skin, which can be corrected through abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck. During this procedure, the abdominal muscles are tightened, and excess skin is removed, resulting in a flatter and more toned midsection.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to breast ptosis or sagging. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a crucial component of a mommy makeover, lifting and reshaping the breasts to a more youthful position. In some cases, breast implants may also be included to restore lost volume, achieving a fuller and perkier breast appearance.
Many women experience a loss of breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. To address deflated breasts, breast augmentation with implants or fat transfer can be performed during a mommy makeover. This procedure increases breast size and enhances their shape, restoring a more youthful contour.
Stubborn fat deposits, often resistant to diet and exercise, can accumulate in various areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. Liposuction is a common mommy makeover component used to target and remove these fat deposits, sculpting a more harmonious body contour.
While facial wrinkles are not exclusive to pregnancy, they are often a concern for individuals seeking a more comprehensive rejuvenation. A mommy makeover can extend to include facial rejuvenation procedures like Botox, dermal fillers, or facelifts to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging, refreshing the facial appearance.
Your Personal Mommy Makeover Consultation
Dr. Daniel Casper will meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss options that will best meet your needs in planning to restore your pre-baby figure. At this consultation, Dr. Casper will explain all aspects of the procedures you are considering, address any concerns you may have, and discuss a custom surgical plan for you.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
As with any elective cosmetic surgery, you should be in good health and be free of medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, bleeding disorders and diabetes. These conditions, and some others, could cause complications while under anesthesia.
You should have finished having children, as a subsequent pregnancy will affect the results of your surgery. You should be near or at an ideal weight, as a mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure.
How Does a Mommy Makeover Work?
This procedure will remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise and will remove excess skin on the lower abdomen where the majority of stretch marks usually appear. A mommy makeover in Los Angeles will also tighten the tummy, raise the breasts and sculpt the waistline among other enhancements. Dr. Casper is a body contouring expert with thousands of surgeries to his credit.
How Long Do I Have to Wait to Get a Mommy Makeover?
You should wait at least six months after giving birth to allow your body to stabilize after the hormonal and physical changes of pregnancy and childbirth. If you were breastfeeding, your breasts must be completely dry to avoid breast implant complications such as capsular contracture. Breast asymmetry can also occur during breastfeeding. If this irregularity doesn’t resolve, the symmetry can be restored in a custom surgery performed by Dr. Casper. A mommy makeover can occur within a year or two of giving birth, or years later and achieve the same beneficial results. Women who have very small children as well as the demands of a job should carefully consider how managing the demands on their time will impact their recovery.
