Although having children is a joyous time in one’s life, pregnancy and breastfeeding often leave women with certain aesthetic concerns, including loose abdominal skin, separated abdominal muscles that have lost their tone and sagging and / or deflated-looking breasts.
At South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we offer patients in Fort Lauderdale mommy makeover surgery to correct the aesthetic concerns that typically develop as a result of having children. However, we realize that not all moms share the same cosmetic complaints. That is why we often customize mommy makeover surgery to address each patient’s specific concerns. Here are our top three mommy makeover combinations.
Tummy Tuck + Breast Lift Surgery
With abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, your board-certified plastic surgeon makes a horizontal incision across the lower abdomen. The incision is strategically positioned in the pubic area, where it can be concealed by the underwear or bikini line. The surgeon eliminates any excess skin before repairing the underlying tissues including the damaged abdominal muscles. The remaining skin in then re-draped over the new flatter, toned abdomen before the incision is closed. The navel is repositioned so it is aligned with the new abdominal contour, using a second incision in the belly button.
Breast lift surgery is performed to raise drooping breasts to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall. The surgeon again removes any excess skin, if needed, before repositioning the breast tissue higher up on the chest wall, thereby improving the look of sagging breasts.
Tummy Tuck + Breast Lift + Breast Augmentation Surgery
Sometimes, breast lift surgery is not enough to restore a beautiful appearance to the breasts. If you have lost a substantial amount of breast volume due to nursing, you may require surgical breast augmentation in your mommy makeover. We offer saline implants, silicone implants or natural breast augmentation (a technique that uses your own fat taken from another area of your body to enhance your breasts) to restore volume to deflated-looking breasts.
By combining tummy tuck, breast lift and breast augmentation procedures in your mommy makeover, we can address the cosmetic concerns that most often occur as a result of having children.
Tummy Tuck + Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
Perhaps your breasts did not suffer any aesthetic damage from breastfeeding, but you desire a lifted, curvier derrière. In this case, we can include Brazilian butt lift surgery in your mommy makeover procedure. With Brazilian butt lift, fat is taken from another area of your body that typically has an excess of fat cells, such as your hips or thighs. The fat cells are purified and then re-injected into the upper quadrant of your posterior to enhance the “S” curve that most of us desire. The aesthetic outcome is a more elevated, voluptuous derrière that other moms will envy!
The most important thing to note with mommy makeover surgery is that it can be customized specifically for you! During your consultation, your surgeon will listen to your aesthetic concerns, evaluate your anatomy and suggest an appropriate treatment protocol that best suits your specific needs.
