Mommy Makeover Q & A

Mitts Plastic Surgery

What is a mommy makeover?

It sounds like something that might happen if you let your toddler loose with your cosmetics, but a mommy makeover is actually an umbrella term for a collection of surgical procedures designed to lift and tighten areas of the body associated with childbirth.

Women frequently notice that parts of their bodies look different after they’ve given birth, but this is unsurprising considering the amazing feat their body performs during pregnancy and labor. Postpregnancy exercise and a nutritious diet can resolve these issues for some women, but others find there is no improvement.

If you aren’t seeing positive changes in your body despite making efforts to lose weight and improve muscle tone, a mommy makeover can be an effective option.

What areas of the body are included in a mommy makeover?

When he carries out a mommy makeover, Dr. Mitts makes adjustments to areas of the body that may be stretched or sagging to take away the less attractive after effects of having a baby. Dr. Mitts can improve many areas of a woman’s body in a single procedure, which typically includes restoring the appearance of:

  • Breasts
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Genitalia
  • Buttocks

At your initial consultation, you can discuss with Dr. Mitts which of these areas are causing you concern, and he advises you on the most appropriate technique to use to achieve your desired outcomes.

What kinds of procedures might form part of a mommy makeover?

The procedures in a mommy makeover usually involve the areas of the body that suffer the most from the stresses of pregnancy and childbirth, so typical procedures are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Combined breast lift and augmentation
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

The procedures vary for each patient, and Dr. Mitts is very careful to ensure all his patients have a full understanding of what is achievable and any risk of complications involved in the surgery.

Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?

Dr. Mitts follows professional guidelines to ensure that anyone who asks for a mommy makeover is a suitable candidate for the procedure. He assesses your current health and medical history and discusses what you wish to accomplish with the surgery. It’s also important to bear in mind that if you undergo a mommy makeover, you’ll need someone to take over the care of your children for at least two weeks following your surgery.
