Mommy makeover, a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to help mothers restore their body’s youthful appearance, is becoming increasingly popular. Mothers often opt for the procedure to get back into shape following childbirth or the loss of significant amounts of weight. By understanding different procedure types and their potential benefits, mothers have greater control over their individualized treatment plans so they can look — and feel — their very best.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a set of cosmetic surgical procedures typically performed to address the physical changes in a woman’s body due to pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The primary objective of a mommy makeover is to help women regain their pre-pregnancy body shape and appearance. The specific procedures included in a mommy makeover can vary depending on individual goals and needs. However, it often involves a combination of the following cosmetic surgeries:
- Breast Enhancement: This may include breast augmentation (implants) to restore volume, breast lift (mastopexy) to address sagging, or breast reduction to reduce breast size if desired.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck removes excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal muscles to address stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) and create a flatter, more toned abdomen.
- Liposuction: Liposuction can remove stubborn pockets of fat from various areas of the body, such as the hips, thighs, or flanks.
The combined procedures in a mommy makeover are tailored to each woman’s specific concerns and goals, and it is typically performed in a single surgical session to minimize recovery time. Mommy makeovers can help women address changes in their breasts, abdomen, and body contours that often occur during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover offers several benefits for individuals who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth, helping them regain confidence in their appearance and address post-pregnancy changes. Some key benefits include:
A mommy makeover combines multiple procedures, including breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and liposuction, into a single surgical session. This allows for a comprehensive body transformation, simultaneously addressing various areas of concern.
Restoration of Pre-Pregnancy Body
Pregnancy can lead to changes such as sagging breasts, stretched abdominal muscles, and stubborn fat deposits. A mommy makeover helps restore the body to its pre-pregnancy shape, improving breast volume and position while tightening the abdomen.
Customized to Individual Needs
The procedures included in a mommy makeover can be customized to meet each patient’s unique goals and concerns. This tailoring ensures that the treatment plan is personalized to address specific areas of concern.
By combining procedures into a single surgery, patients benefit from the efficiency of a single recovery period and reduced overall downtime compared to having multiple separate surgeries.
The results of a mommy makeover are usually long-lasting, provided that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable body weight after the procedure.
Pregnancy and childbirth can cause medical issues like stress urinary incontinence for some women. A mommy makeover can include treatments like vaginal rejuvenation to address these concerns.
How Do We Perform Mommy Makeovers?
At Luxxe Wellness & Beauty, we understand the desire for a mommy makeover and appreciate that there are several approaches to achieving that goal. One option is a non-invasive approach that allows for customized treatment plans tailored to your wants and needs. Instead of undergoing the traditional mommy makeover surgery, our non-invasive mommy makeover incorporates a range of treatments, which include:
Emsculpt NEO is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that combines high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy with radiofrequency (RF) technology. It is designed to build muscle and reduce fat in targeted areas simultaneously. This treatment is beneficial for toning and strengthening the abdominal muscles and the other regions that may have been affected by pregnancy and childbirth.
Emsella is a non-invasive treatment designed to address pelvic floor issues, such as stress urinary incontinence, a common concern for women post-pregnancy. It uses electromagnetic technology to stimulate and strengthen pelvic muscles, improving bladder control and overall pelvic health.
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with RF energy. It helps improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and promote collagen production. RF microneedling can address skin concerns on the face and body, making it suitable for post-pregnancy skin rejuvenation.
3 Deep Contour
3 Deep Contour is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) treatment that targets skin laxity and fat reduction. It can tighten loose skin on the abdomen and other areas and contour the body without surgery.
These treatments target specific body areas for revitalization and renewal, helping achieve the desired mommy makeover results without going under the knife.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover?
If you are contemplating a mommy makeover, you may wonder if you are a good candidate for non-surgical options. To determine eligibility for treatment, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our team. Generally, individuals experiencing urinary incontinence or weakened pelvic floor muscles could benefit from HIFEM treatment.
Those seeking fat reduction and muscle building may qualify for high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy-based fat removal. Radiofrequency microneedling is an option for those wanting tighter, smoother skin or a reduction in a mommy pooch. Results vary for each individual, but a consultation with us is the best way to know if non-surgical options are right for you.
