Combining Procedures to Create a Total Mommy Makeover
Having children is one of the most wonderful things a woman can experience, but it can also result in changes to your body that cannot be reversed through diet and exercise alone. Many women would like to have a number of surgical procedures performed to restore their bodies to their pre-pregnancy appearance, but do not know where to begin. For these women, we offer the total mommy makeover at our Pittsburgh-area practice. Dr. Dennis Hurwitz is a world renowned surgeon known for his innovative techniques and the level of care and attention he gives to each of his patients. If you would like to learn more about the procedures we can perform as a part of your mommy makeover, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.
A mommy makeover is a completely customized treatment plan made up of multiple procedures. Every plan is unique and is designed to address each individual's concerns and treatment goals.
When you come in for your initial consultation with Dr. Hurwitz, you will discuss your objectives and receive recommendations on how best to achieve these results. Procedures that are commonly performed as part of a mommy makeover include:
- Breast Augmentation - During pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman's breasts can go through many changes in size and shape. A breast augmentation procedure can restore your bust line to your desired specifications.
- Breast Lift - The skin of the breasts can become stretched throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, and a breast lift can remove excess skin and restore more youthful contouring.
- Abdominoplasty - More commonly known as a tummy tuck, this procedure can remove excess skin from your abdominal area that has been stretched out during pregnancy. A tummy tuck can also repair damaged abdominal muscles. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles often separate and fail to regain their previously flat, toned appearance.
- Liposuction - This body contouring procedure is typically used in conjunction with a tummy tuck, but can also be applied to virtually any area of the body to remove stubborn fat deposits that have accumulated during pregnancy.
- Fat Transfer - Minimally invasive fat transfer is becoming more popular as part of a mommy makeover. Excess fat removed during liposuction can be used to augment or enhance another area of your body. This cleansed, purified fat is most commonly placed in the breasts, buttocks, or face to improve youthful contouring in those areas.
Additionally, many women choose to combine facial procedures as part of their mommy makeover treatments. In most cases, as long as you are in good health and not combining a large number of procedures, your surgeries can be performed during the same appointment. This means you will only need to undergo one recovery period, and may even enable you to save money on related surgical fees.
