The Mommy Makeover is a series of cosmetic surgery procedures that can help women regain a youthful figure after pregnancy and childbirth. For most patients, this involves a tummy tuck combined with breast augmentation, but plastic surgeons can tailor the procedure depending on your specific needs.
Dr. Cusick performs the Mommy Makeover to help moms regain a more youthful figure and renew their self-confidence.
What to Expect
During a consultation, Dr. Cusick will determine which procedures will help you regain a youthful body shape. The doctor will answer any questions you have and discuss the procedure(s) in detail, so you can make an educated decision about your Mommy Makeover.
Patients are typically advised to wait at least 3 to 6 months after childbirth before considering a Mommy Makeover. The doctor can help you plan the procedure, whether it is performed in the near future or several months from now.
The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure that can address a protruding tummy and stretched abdominal muscles. The doctor removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen area, and in some cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating a tighter, more toned tummy.
Breast augmentation can help moms achieve larger, fuller more symmetrical breasts. Saline or silicone implants are used to enlarge breast size for these patients. Through the surgical insertion of implants, the surgery can improve your body proportion, feminine appearance, and self-confidence.
Women seek labiaplasty for a variety of reasons, some for personal hygiene and some for cosmetic reasons, such as protruding labia. If you are bothered by this condition, labiaplasty may be the right solution for you.
Liposuction is often used to target excess fat deposits that are particularly resistant to exercise and dietary changes, and is frequently used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. If needed, the doctor can perform liposuction during your mommy makeover, to help slim down specific areas of your body.
A combined procedure of breast and body contouring can involve more downtime than a single procedure. You will probably need some help at home for about one week after surgery, while complete recovery requires several weeks. As with many cosmetic procedures, it may take about six months or even a year to appreciate the final results of your Mommy Makeover.
