Starting the New Year Right: Mommy Makeover Benefits

With 2016 right around the corner, you might be considering a few self-improvements in the upcoming year. Why not start with a surgical procedure that will give you back the body you have been missing since you had kids? A mommy makeover at Umansky Plastic Surgery might be just the thing you need to restore your youthful figure and your self-confidence.

What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures designed to restore your pre-pregnancy body. The specific procedure combination will vary from patient to patient, based on each woman’s specific needs and desired outcome. The most common procedures to include in a mommy makeover include:

  • Breast Lift – restores the breasts to a youthful position on the chest, while removing loose skin and excess tissue that leads to the sagging appearance. This is often combined with a breast implant to replace loss volume
  • Tummy Tuck – removes excess skin and tissue from the midsection to sculpt a sleeker waistline. The abdominal wall muscles are tightened to reverse the stretching effect of pregnancy
  • Liposuction – used to remove isolated pockets of fat from different areas of the body that have not responded to diet and exercise

Other procedures that might be included with the mommy makeover might include facial enhancements like an eyelid lift. Non-surgical treatments, such as laser skin rejuvenation might also be performed at the same time as the mommy makeover to further enhance results. As a general rule, plastic surgeons like to limit surgeries to six to eight hours to reduce the risk of complications. As long as your combination of procedures falls into this timeframe, it is likely you will be able to have your choice of procedures performed in a single surgical session.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
There are a variety of reasons to consider a mommy makeover as your New Year’s resolution for 2016:

  • One procedure means dramatic results with just one time under anesthesia and one recovery period to worry about
  • Combining procedures saves on some of the expenses associated with plastic surgery, including anesthesiologist fees and operating room fees
  • Removal of loose skin during the procedure can actually improve the appearance and health of the skin by reducing your risk of rashes and other skin conditions
  • Experienced plastic surgeons like Drs. William and Jeffrey Umansky are accustomed to performing these procedures in combination, ensuring your procedure is both safe and successful
  • Mommy makeovers offer significant improvement in your body contour, which can increase your self-confidence
  • A mommy makeover gives you the opportunity to take a break from focusing on others to focus on your own needs and desires for a short period of time

Take the Next Step!
Mommy makeovers are usually recommended for women that are not planning to have any more children, since pregnancy can alter the results of the procedure.
