Let’s face it: Having a baby changes your body. Moms are affected differently based on their unique physiques, but common physical changes post-pregnancy include:
- Excess, stubborn fat, especially on the midsection
- Deflated, puffy skin around the midsection
- Sagging, deflated breasts
A Mommy Makeover is an umbrella term referring to a custom approach. First, you will discuss the changes you would like to make, and then Dr. Farris will recommend a procedure or combination of procedures that will accomplish those goals. It’s called a “makeover” because the intention is to restore the physique that feels 100 percent you: your vivacity, beauty and spirit.
After pregnancy, many women feel like they can’t get back down to their original weight despite diet and exercise. Even if you can reclaim the body weight, you may find that areas of your body have pockets of fat or puffy skin that won’t go away. Some women experience changes to their breasts that they’d rather do without, such as sagging and drooping. All of these issues and others can be addressed with a comprehensive Mommy Makeover.
A Mommy Makeover is often 2 or more procedures together. The idea is to address the whole body, not isolated areas. Common combinations include some of the following:
- Breast lift
- Breast lift with implants
- Tummy tuck
Your treatment plan could of course include other rejuvenating procedures. The whole point is to produce the customized results you want most.
The only way to know if you are a good candidate is to discuss the procedures with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Farris. He wants to listen to you first, to get to know your goals and concerns. Only then can he determine whether cosmetic surgery is a good fit for what you want to achieve.
