Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, a mommy makeover can restore your youthful figure. The customizable procedure can address loose skin, excess fat, and sagging breasts.
Following your mommy makeover at New Image Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, you will be left with multiple small incisions that will form minor scars once they heal. Dr. Steven Wiener will artfully place the incisions where they will be least noticeable. Patients can take steps to further reduce the appearance of their scars after mommy makeover by following the advice in this blog post.
A mommy makeover uses multiple cosmetic procedures to address aesthetic issues that arise after childbirth and breastfeeding. Pregnancy can stretch the skin and abdominal muscles and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag.
The location of your scars will depend on which procedures Dr. Wiener recommends. Your mommy makeover may include:
In order to remove excess skin and tighten your abdominal muscles, Dr. Wiener will need to make a curved incision horizontally along your lower abdomen.
The incision will be carefully placed so that it naturally remains hidden by your underwear and bikini or swimsuit.
A breast lift is generally performed by making an incision around the nipple (hidden on the edge of the areola) that then runs directly down the bottom of the breast to the chest (a lollipop shape). Some surgeries may require an additional incision along the bottom fold of the best (anchor shape).
Breast implants can be placed through a number of means. Some implants are inserted through an incision made under the areola while others can be placed through an incision that is made along the bottom fold of the breast.
Scars resulting from a breast lift or augmentation will be concealed by a bra, clothing, or swimsuit.
Liposuction can be performed through the tummy tuck incision or via a series of small incisions in the treatment site. These incisions generally heal with minimal scarring.
After surgery, your incisions will appear swollen and bruised. As scar tissue initially forms, it may appear dark and elevated compared to nearby skin. Over the weeks and months following your mommy makeover in Scottsdale, the scar tissue will settle and become lighter in color.
The process may take several months, so we ask patients to be patient while following these scar-reducing tips.
Reclaim your slimmer profile through one comprehensive body contouring procedure. No two patients are the same, and no two mommy makeover procedures are either. Dr. Wiener will customize your mommy makeover to meet your cosmetic needs and personal goals.
