Can I Pick and Choose What’s Part of My Mommy Makeover?

Submitted by Dr. Fasching on Thu 07/07/2016 - 22:14


Forget those late-night feedings. What many new moms hate even more than sleep deprivation are the physical changes that linger after pregnancy. If stretch marks and saggy breasts aren’t your cup of tea, come see Dr. Fasching for a Mommy Makeover. You can have it all: a sexy body and your sweet babies, too.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover isn’t a single surgery but, rather, a combination of procedures that result in a full-body transformation. It can restore your post-baby body to a more youthful, pre-pregnancy appearance (or even better!). Dr. Fasching will custom-tailor your Mommy Makeover, choosing procedures to target your problem areas. These surgeries can often be performed at the same time to speed recovery and get you to your best body sooner. A Mommy Makeover is not recommended until you’ve finished bearing children and breastfeeding.

What Procedures Will Be Included in My Mommy Makeover?

This isn’t one-size-fits-all. During your consultation, Dr. Fasching will discuss your areas of concern and will help you choose procedures to address these issues. Your surgery will be designed specifically for you.

Although each makeover is customized to your needs, many moms choose to include a tummy tuck and breast surgery in their transformations.

Why Are Tummy Tucks a Common Addition to a Mommy Makeover?Mommy Makeover

Do you have a “mommy tummy”? Pregnancy or multiple pregnancies can take their toll on the abdomen. Loose abdominal skin and stretch marks are common. Many women experience weakness or separation of the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can reverse many of these changes. During the surgery, excess skin and fat are removed. The muscles are tightened and stitched together, correcting any separation. If you always look slightly pregnant even though you’re not, a tummy tuck may be an essential addition to your Mommy Makeover.

Why Are Breast Surgeries Commonly Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Has pregnancy changed your breasts? Many women experience breast sagging for the first time after pregnancy. Breastfeeding can leave the breasts looking flat and deflated. The nipples may droop and point downward. Breast surgeries can correct these changes, restoring a perky, youthful breast appearance.

  • Breast Lift– A breast lift repositions the breasts, raising them to a higher, more youthful position on the breast wall. This can be performed on its own or paired with implants.
  • Breast Augmentation– Breast augmentation surgery can increase your breast size by placing a silicone or saline implant inside of the breast.
