What is included in a mommy makeover? Well, that depends on you. A variety of procedures can be paired together in any mommy makeover. These are thoroughly customized surgical packages designed to alleviate your specific concerns with your post-baby body. The most popular treatments for mommy makeovers at Plastic Surgery Associates in Santa Rosa are:
- breast augmentation and/or breast lift
- tummy tuck
- vaginal rejuvenation
We will thoroughly discuss your concerns and expectations and educate you on every detail of your different options. Read on for a quick overview of these popular mommy makeover procedures.
Liposuction has been the gold standard of fat reduction for decades. While there are a variety of nonsurgical body sculpting options today, liposuction is the most effective and fastest way to eliminate stubborn fat that just won’t respond to diet and exercise.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
Breast augmentations and breast lifts are popular surgeries for women regardless of whether they’ve had children. A breast augmentation involves adding volume to the breasts via surgical implants. Implants are either silicone or saline, both of which are extremely effective. Our breast augmentation patients at our Santa Rosa plastic surgery center are thrilled with their results and newfound confidence, often remarking they wish they had done it sooner!
Breast lifts can be performed with or without a breast augmentation. In addition, we now can do a fat transfer to the breast for those women who want more volume without the use of an implant. While genetics and weight loss can cause breasts to look deflated, pregnancy and breastfeeding can empty the breasts so little but skin is left. With a breast lift, our surgical experts trim away loose skin and surgically tighten remaining tissue. Most women find a breast lift leaves them feeling more comfortable and youthful. They also feel that they can wear bathing suits and sundresses without constantly tugging or adjusting the straps.
Tummy tucks can be performed on women who have loose or wrinkled skin as well as excess stubborn fat in the abdomen. Some women find that their excess skin and fat remains an issue despite diet and exercise.
When it comes to tummy tucks, there are a few different options depending on your needs and preferences. For example, we customize the incision type based upon the amount of excess skin in the area. For those who have a lot of loose skin, we offer an extended tummy tuck which involves an incision from hip to hip above the pubic area. There are less invasive options available to those who are less concerned about their amount of loose skin.
There are usually three components to the tummy tucks we perform at Plastic Surgery Associates: excision of loose skin, muscle tightening, and liposuction. Before beginning your surgery, we will ensure you have a full understanding of the type of tummy tuck we will perform and that you understand the needed aftercare.
Both the vagina and vulva go through changes during pregnancy and childbirth. During a labiaplasty, we decrease the size of the labia majora (outer lips) and/or labia minora (inner lips). This can improve the look and feel of the vulva, increasing sexual pleasure as well as confidence.
Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas have additional training in labiaplasty—in fact they are international leaders in labiaplasty procedures. Hundreds of plastic surgeons around the world have been trained in their techniques. You know you’re in the best possible hands when you choose Plastic Surgery Associates for a labiaplasty as part of your mommy makeover.
Vaginal rejuvenation comes in many forms, both surgical and nonsurgical. For some women with mild changes, a nonsurgical technique may suffice. For those who have more significant stretching of the vaginal canal, or whose labia are elongated, a surgical procedure is more effective and can be done in one session.
Two of the most common vaginal rejuvenation surgeries we perform during mommy makeovers include vaginoplasty and perineoplasty. These procedures repair damage from childbirth, including damage from an episiotomy. While we cannot surgically tighten the entire pelvic floor, patients have reported significant improvement in vaginal tightness after one or both of these vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
