Childbirth is a beautiful part of life, but pregnancy can significantly change a woman’s body. Many women find it impossible to get their pre-baby body back through diet and exercise alone. Certain changes, like those that occur in the breasts, cannot be addressed without surgery.
Galanis Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills provides a personalized group of procedures called the “Mommy Makeover” to help moms enhance their figure and get back to the body they had before childbirth. This surgical package can include breast lifts to raise sagging breast tissue, tummy tucks to resolve loose skin around the midsection, or liposuction to remove excess fat. Learn more about what’s included in the Mommy Makeover below.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover at Galanis Plastic Surgery is a series of procedures that aim to address the bodily changes women have experienced after pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover can consist of any combination of the following procedures:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Full tummy tuck
- Mini tummy tuck
Each patient has unique needs and would benefit from a different combination of procedures. For example, many women experience breast sagging due to breastfeeding and the weight fluctuations of pregnancy. These women may opt for a breast lift with a mini tummy tuck. For women mainly struggling with post-pregnancy weight loss, liposuction and a full tummy tuck may be the best Mommy Makeover combination for them.
In some cases, a patient may qualify to add a procedure to their Mommy Makeover. Some common examples include an arm lift, thigh lift, or facial rejuvenation procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Galanis will work with you to determine the best set of procedures for your Mommy Makeover.
Am I a Good Candidate for the Mommy Makeover?
The ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover is any woman who has had pregnancy-related changes to their body. This includes a protruding stomach, stubborn fat, and deflated breasts. You must be in good overall health and pass a pre-surgical medical clearance before your Mommy Makeover procedures,
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Your Mommy Makeover surgical package may be performed all simultaneously or spaced out over several weeks to months. This will depend largely on which combination of procedures you are having and your unique medical needs. Dr. Galanis will determine how your personalized set of surgeries will be performed. Mommy Makeover procedures happen under general anesthesia, and patients often stay overnight before being discharged.
