Being a mother is one of the most wonderful experiences in life, but it can take a toll on your body. At MiKO Plastic Surgery, we work with women who have worked very hard to tone and get their body in shape but are not experiencing the results they like with stubborn fatty tissue deposits in the abdominal area and the breasts.
As with all the procedures we provide, Dr. Obeng will meet with you and discuss your goals for the procedure. By answering your questions and helping you to understand the procedures and the expected results, you can determine if the basic Mommy makeover surgery is the right choice or if other types of contouring processes may also be required to create the desired look.
The Breast Area
It is very common for women to have a breast size increase of one to two cup sizes while pregnant and breastfeeding. With multiple children, this creates a greater risk of the breasts sagging or losing volume after lactation.
With Mommy makeover surgery, Dr. Obeng can provide information on his recommendations to reshape the breast area. This may include a breast augmentation to increase volume and plump up the breasts. A breast lift can also be completed to restore the position of the breasts. For some women, a breast reduction can be the best option for restoring a pre-pregnancy smaller cup and breast size.
The Abdominal Area
To reduce excess skin and fatty tissue on the abdomen, a tummy tuck or a mini-tummy tuck may be recommended. The mini-tummy tuck is used to tighten the lower abdomen muscles and remove excess skin that is at or below the belly button.
It is also common to include liposuction in the abdominal area and even in the lower back and inner and outer thighs. Some women are also opting for a Brazilian butt lift to give them a curvy figure.
