Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful and unique phases in every women’s life. However, many women experience changes in their body post-partum which can be difficult to correct with diet and exercise alone. Changes to the volume and appearance of the breast, stretch marks and sagging abdominal skin and fat accumulation on hips, thighs and love handles are commonly seen after pregnancy.
A Mommy Makeover can correct these deformities in patients who are dissatisfied with these changes and provide them with an opportunity to restore their body to a pre-pregnancy state. If you are dissatisfied with your post pregnancy body changes, then consider Mommy Makeover by our expert Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Mansher Singh, based out of Manhattan, New York.
A Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of plastic surgery procedures that have been chosen by you and your surgeon to address your post-pregnancy body changes. The most common procedures performed in Mommy Makeover include Breast lift with or without implants, Abdominoplasty and Liposuction of abdomen flanks. However, there are many additional procedures such as Breast Augmentation, BBL, Thigh Lift that can be performed as a part of Mommy Makeover. The procedures are generally done in one setting but can also be staged based on patients’ preference and the number of procedures performed.
A major advantage of Mommy Makeover is that it can address multiple areas of your body simultaneously and can have a dramatic improvement towards the goal of getting you to your pre-pregnancy state.
The most common procedures involved in the Mommy Makeover include:
Sagging of breast skin and drooping of the breast tissue commonly occur as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast lift with or without implants can help in addressing the redundant breast skin while also lifting the breast tissue and the nipples to a pre-pregnancy state. Additionally, the breast lift procedure reshapes the enlarged nipples, enhances the cleavage resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Stretch marks, loose and sagging abdominal skin, and rectus diastasis are hallmarks of pregnancy due to constant stretching for a long period of time. This can make the abdomen disproportionate to the rest of the body. Abdominoplasty a.k.a tummy tuck can restore the appearance to a firmer, flatter abdomen.
Weight gain during pregnancy can be difficult to lose afterward even with diet and exercise. It is common to have excess fat accumulation in the hips, flanks, and thighs. Liposuction works by removing excess fat surgically and can result in improved contour in desired areas.
Dr. Mansher Singh the expert of Mommy Makeover in Manhattan and Beverly Hills says that every woman has a unique body size and shape, hence adopting a cookie-cutter approach isn’t appropriate. He and his team believe in “customized patient care” to bring the best results of a mommy makeover to the table.
