Many mothers in Kona have undergone the Mommy Makeover. The exact procedure varies from woman to woman but the confidence and happiness it brings each mother is uniform across the board. After having children, women can experience substantial body degradation, which is still a small price to pay for a beautiful baby. However, now thanks to your local Kona plastic surgeon and the mommy makeover, moms can get their pre-baby body back in no time!
The top half of a mommy makeover usually involves a breast augmentation to correct ptosis and improve the overall aesthetic of the breast. Depending on the women, this can include a breast lift, reduction, or implant. The three most common complaints regarding breasts after pregnancy is a stretched appearance, loss of shape and a loss of volume.
The midsection is another target of a mommy makeover. Usually a tummy tuck is used to remove the exercise resistant fat and skin that may be sticking around after a pregnancy. Your Kona plastic surgeon will help you decide which tummy tuck technique is best for you. The three main techniques include a ‘mini’ tummy tuck, a standard tummy tuck, and an extended tummy tuck. Each technique has its own unique pros and cons to be discusses with S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS. You can undergo your mommy makeover in two stages. One procedure shortly followed by another, or you can have them done simultaneously.
Mommy makeovers are not just for mommies. A patient who has experienced extreme wait lost, either naturally or after a bariatric surgery, is also a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Extreme weight loss has a similar effect on the breasts, skin and mid-section as a pregnancy does.
