The Three Standard Mommy Makeover Procedures
There are three basic procedures included in the mommy makeover:
Breast Lift / Breast Augmentation
One of the most affected parts of a woman’s body after pregnancy are the breasts. In addition to the enlargement of the breasts due to the secretion of milk from the mammary glands, breasts may naturally grow larger as compared to their prenatal size. As the breasts enlarge over time, the skin often loses its elasticity, and then can sag as the tissue softens. To make the breasts firm again, women undergo a breast augmentation which in many cases includes a breast lift. This can be done either with or without breast reduction. After the breast lift, your breasts will regain their previous firmness and definition.
At times, excess skin and fat may build up in different areas of the body such as arms, legs, and tummy. An excellent solution for eliminating fat deposits in these areas is liposuction. Dr. Roth’s liposuction technique focuses on first understanding his patient’s body proportions and then balancing where to remove the displeasing areas of fat storage. By creating a tiny incision on areas of localized fat deposits, Dr. Roth can insert a narrow tube or a cannula under the skin.Once the tube is in place, he uses a vacuum pump to suck out the excess lipids under your skin.
After giving birth, mommies often develop excess abdominal stretching and loose skin around the stomach region.This combination of loose skin and excess fat can make many mothers feel self-conscious about their appearance. One proven way to reverse these concerns is to get a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, involves removing the excess skin and fat from the tummy area. After creating an incision in the area above the pubic hairline, from hipbone to hipbone, Dr. Roth will lift the tummy area back to its original position. — You can opt for either a regular or mini version of this procedure. While these three are the most common surgeries, you may talk to Dr. Roth for additional procedures and other questions specifically regarding Mommy Makeover.
