Procedures included in the mommy makeover for patients in the Orange County area
Women who have gone through one or more pregnancies and weight changes may feel as though their body is less than perfect. However, women can feel great in their own skin with plastic surgery procedures.
Dr. Thuan Nguyen and the team of Orange County’s The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery work closely with women to help them understand procedures such as the “mommy makeover.”
What is a mommy makeover?
Women who want to address various parts of their body in one surgical procedure often discuss with their doctor the benefits of the mommy makeover. A mommy makeover is a combination of treatments, which may include liposuction, breast lift, breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck.
When done together, patients can save money, time, and reduce overall healing and recovery needed.
What procedures may be included?
The procedures most often included in a mommy makeover are:
- Liposuction – fat can be removed from various areas of the body, more specifically in the thighs and stomach area for most of our patients.
- Tummy tuck – after excess fat has been removed, skin laxity may become an issue. Patients may want a tummy tuck, which removes excess skin and sutures the tummy area so that it is firmer and tighter.
- Breast lift – breasts that are sagging may look as though they have lost volume. Women happy with their breast size but who want to lift them may benefit from this procedure.
- Breast augmentation – most of our patients like to include breast augmentation. This varies from woman to woman based on her specific desires in changing the shape and contours of her body.
Dr. Thuan Nguyen and his team believe that patients should look and feel their best, so after motherhood, many women want to consider cosmetic surgery for themselves. This can be a great way to obtain a more youthful body after all the changes that have naturally occurred.
