Babies are miracles, but pregnancy and childbirth definitely leave their mark! As a part of the process, women’s bodies naturally undergo various physical changes. And for many moms, regaining their pre-baby confidence means getting back the taut, toned figure they had before becoming a parent.
That’s why we take pride in providing the best Mommy Makeovers in Washington DC, helping our patients feel confident and empowered. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about this service.
The “Mommy Makeover” is a collection of plastic surgery procedures that address common concerns mothers often have after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Think of a mommy makeover as a flexible toolset – you can use all the tools at once or just pick the ones you need:
Here’s a breakdown of the different techniques that, when combined, make the best Mommy Makeover in Washington DC:
Our surgeons address the trouble spots in your abdomen during a tummy tuck. They do this by liposuctioning the stomach, tightening weak muscles to create a smaller waist, and removing extra skin beneath the belly button. For an hourglass shape, you can also apply this to your back or flanks (love handles).
Want fuller breasts? Breast augmentation uses implants under the breast tissue or muscle to achieve your desired size. Surgeons simply make a discreet incision, create a pocket for the implant, and gently tuck it in. And subtle sutures and supportive bandages complete the straightforward process!
A breast lift (mastopexy) reshapes the appearance of your breasts. Removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue can give your breasts a more youthful and supported shape. It is not the same as breast augmentation – which enlarges the breasts. Lifts only reposition breasts that have started to sag or become less firm!
You guessed it: breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, aims to decrease the size of your breasts while maintaining symmetry! In order to reduce each breast, the surgeon will make incisions to remove tissue, fat, and skin.
Liposuction reshapes the body! This procedure sculpts by removing unwanted fat deposits, giving you a trimmer waist, more defined curves, and a smoother back. Imagine saying goodbye to love handles and hello to an hourglass figure! And liposuction isn’t just for the abdomen area; it also enhances your back profile by minimizing any unwanted curves.
A thigh lift can be a helpful solution for women who experience sagging in their outer thighs after pregnancy. This procedure trims away excess skin and tightens supportive tissues, leaving you with smoother, firmer upper legs.
Pregnancy changes women’s bodies significantly, affecting the skin, muscles, and tissues. Patients often choose this package to address concerns such as deflated breasts, larger-appearing nipples, or downward-pointing nipples. They might also experience split abdominal muscles, stretch marks, and excess skin, tissue, and fat on their stomach or thighs. The Mommy Makeover can address all these changes!
Mommy Makeovers come in different forms. For a thorough transformation, you can mix and match procedures. Alternatively, you can concentrate on just one. The choice is yours! Additionally, each method typically involves different correction levels (depending on your desired intensity).
You may be a candidate if your body changed drastically after having children and you want to look more youthful. Additionally, these procedures can benefit anyone dealing with body issues resulting from significant weight loss, aging, or genetics.
First, we will conduct a thorough examination, medical history review, and talk to understand your goals. Then, we will arrange and schedule your surgery appointment! It may take one appointment or two – depending on the amount of techniques.
The recovery period for a Mommy Makeover is the most intense directly after the procedure. You’ll need to plan some recuperation time into your schedule (take off work).
Everybody recovers in a different timeframe – returning to work between one to three weeks post-op. But rest assured, there are follow-up appointments to ensure you’re healing correctly! Additionally, you’ll receive aftercare instructions and medication to manage the pain.
The cost of this package differs based on the number of treatments you choose. But the range varies anywhere from $6,500 to upwards of $20,000.
Here are a few common questions associated with the package:
While it is technically possible to do so, it’s important to note that your body will experience additional stress, potentially undoing the progress you’ve made.
