How Can You Get The Best Mommy Makeover Results?

05/04/2022

Mommy makeover surgery helps to improve physical comfort and overall appearance following pregnancy. Many changes, including the accumulation of additional fat, stretching of the skin, and temporary enlargement of the breasts, can result in lumpy and uneven portions of the body, areas with loose and hanging skin, stretch marks, and deflated and asymmetrical breasts.

Mommy makeover surgery combines specific procedures to help enhance the entire frame. In the hands of a qualified and experienced surgeon, the procedure can have a profoundly positive impact on your self-esteem and confidence.

Choosing the Best Practice for Your Procedure

The first step in obtaining the best mommy makeover results is choosing the right plastic surgery practice for your procedure. Before you commit to a surgeon, do your research to make sure that:

  • The surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)
  • The procedure will be performed in an accredited surgical facility
  • The techniques used are advanced and efficacious, and as minimally invasive as possible
  • Follow up visits are included in the cost of your procedure

When you are selecting a surgeon, take time to ask all of your questions and carefully gauge the surgeon’s responses. Be sure also to look at before and after photos and to read patient reviews, both online and on the doctor’s website, to get a better understanding of the way they treat their patients and their overall skill.

If you feel at all dissatisfied or uncomfortable with a surgeon, move on. Mommy makeover surgery is a big commitment. Selecting the right surgeon helps to ensure the most comfortable experience.

Breast implant revision is designed to address issues that may arise in the months or even years following breast augmentation. In some cases, these issues are aesthetic, such as asymmetrical results or dissatisfaction with the size, shape, or projection of the implants. Others are related to comfort, such as in cases where capsular contracture has occurred. While much less common, some implants may also require replacement due to developed imperfections like wrinkles and ripples, folds, and deflation.

Five Procedures You Can Have as Part of Your Mommy Makeover

09/09/2021

Mommy makeover surgery is designed to address those areas most commonly impacted by pregnancy and nursing. Because pregnancy can have different effects on different women, it is important that each Mommy Makeover procedure be customized to meet the specific needs of the individual.  Also keep in mind that you do not have to have been pregnant or nursing to have a Mommy Makeover, any person who had more than one body area they are working on qualifies for a Mommy Makeover.

When you choose Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics for your procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ravi Somayazula, will take time to understand your desires and fully assess your areas of concern before recommending which procedures will be most suitable for your needs.

Combining Procedures

While each mommy makeover surgery is customized, some procedures are more common than others. Five of the most common are:

  • Breast Augmentation. This procedure uses implants to restore volume to the breasts. Dr. Ravi also offers Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation for women who would prefer to avoid implants.
  • Breast Lift. This procedure addresses sagging breast tissue and nipple displacement, helping to restore a perky and ideally positioned breast mound. This can be performed with or without breast implants.
  • Liposuction. With liposuction, Dr. Ravi can remove stubborn deposits of fat from the thighs, hips, low back, abdomen, arms, and other areas holding weight from pregnancy. We offer the latest liposuction technique, including VASER liposuction to meet the specific needs of each individual
  • Abdominoplasty. Tummy tuck surgery is used to eliminate excess skin around the belly. It can also be used to trim the waist and reattach abdominal muscles that have become separated due to pregnancy
  • Arm Lift. Brachioplasty removes sagging skin and excess fat from the underside of the arm, helping to restore both form and comfort to the upper arms

In addition to these procedures, some Mommy Makeover surgeries can include other body procedures such as a Thigh Lift to remove excess skin from the upper legs, a Brazilian Buttock Lift to improve symmetry and restore volume in the buttocks, Labiaplasty for improved comfort in the vaginal area, and more.
