Are You a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is an individualized procedure that can help new moms reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies. You should not undertake any of these procedures until you are done having children. This is simply because having another child after the procedure can impact the final results of the makeover and not have the desired results.
The ideal patients for a mommy makeover are in good physical health, with their ideal body weight, and have realistic expectations. Ideal candidates are non-smokers, because smoking negatively affects skin health, which can lead to surgical complications. Smokers will need to quit several weeks before the surgery.
If you’re considering the procedure, it all begins with a consultation to find out if you’d make a good candidate. Dr. Sonny O will work with you to explain the various mommy makeover procedures he offers in his Charleston, SC office. Having performed hundreds of these procedures in his state-of-the-art office, Dr. Sonny O and his team will create a customized plan designed to make you look and feel better about yourself, which may include:
- Breast Augmentation – This procedure involves the placement of saline or silicone breast implants, which restore volume to the patient’s breasts after breastfeeding.
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy) – Pregnancy can often cause breasts to sag after they are no longer producing and storing milk. A breast lift helps reduces breast sag and makes breasts perkier.
- Liposuction – After pregnancy and childbirth, many parts of the body are often left with stubborn stores of excess fat that won’t go away despite regular diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove those stores of fat to help moms restore their curves.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – Loose excess skin on the abdomen following a pregnancy is fairly common, as are sagging abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). With a tummy tuck, we can remove excess skin and fat and tighten ab muscles to give patients a tighter tummy.
A physical examination will be performed, and patients will be asked questions about their medical history. Photographs may be taken for the patient’s medical records.
Scheduling a consultation allows patients to learn more about the steps involved in a mommy makeover, including preparation and recovery. If the patient has any questions or concerns, they can bring them up during the consultation.
