Pregnancy can bring great joy, but it can also bring some changes to your body that you may not feel so excited about. Loss of breast volume, loose abdominal skin, and stubborn fat can make getting back to your pre-baby body challenging. A mommy makeover can help you reclaim the body you had before pregnancy, and sometimes even better.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Each mommy makeover is different since you will have your own unique concerns and goals. Dr. Vitolo uses the most advanced technology and surgical techniques available to give you the best possible results. This includes Scar Less breast augmentation and ultrasound-assisted liposculpture. The most common parts of a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and breast lift, augmentation, or both. However, Dr. Vitolo can add a variety of other procedures to your mommy makeover to achieve your goals.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
You may make a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you have no major health problems and do not smoke or are prepared to quit. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations about the results they can expect to see. If you plan to have another pregnancy, you may not want a mommy makeover now since pregnancy can undo many of your results.
What Is Included In a Mommy Makeover?
Most mommy makeovers include a combination of procedures, beginning with a tummy tuck to correct the effects of pregnancy on the abdomen. Pregnancy often causes the breasts to lose volume and sag, so mommy makeovers usually include a breast lift, augmentation, or both.
A tummy tuck uses an incision across the lower part of the abdomen and removes loose skin and fat. Dr. Vitolo will also repair abdominal muscles that often become separated during pregnancy, giving you a tighter, firmer stomach.
If you have breast volume, but it has sagged, a breast lift may give you the results you want. A breast lift uses an incision under the breast to remove excess skin. Dr. Vitolo will lift and reshape the breast tissue to give you perky, attractive breasts.
Dr. Vitolo specializes in Scar Less breast augmentation. This procedure uses a small incision hidden inside the belly button to place saline breast implants. It causes minimal disruption to the breast tissue and allows faster recovery with fewer complications.
Stubborn areas of fat can prevent you from getting back to your pre-baby body. Dr. Vitolo performs external ultrasonic-assisted liposculpture. This special liposuction technique uses harmless ultrasound energy to visualize the layers of tissue.
You can add a wide variety of other procedures to your mommy makeover. Talk to Dr. Vitolo about your other areas of concern. Having the entire mommy makeover at once means you only need one recovery period.
