The "Mommy Makeover" is a combination of procedures to restore a woman's body after pregnancies and child birth. It may include a breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, and/or a tummy tuck based on your individual situation. Dr. Raine has extensive expertise performing this procedure.
After the breasts engorge and the abdomen expands, there is a stretching of tissue which results in several adverse effects including:
- Drooping of the breasts
- Loss of volume in the breasts
- Bulging of the abdomen due to muscle damage
- Hanging skin from the abdomen
The Mommy Makeover, also know as Mommyplasty or triple procedure, can be performed in a single session.
Your breast evaluation will include examining the shape and volume of the breast and the position of your nipple. We may decide to add volume to your breasts. If your breasts are drooping and your nipples are pointing toward the floor, you may require a breast lift. The type of breast lift you may require is based on the extent of lift required and the amount of skin to be removed. There are many kinds of lifts including: crescent lift, vertical lift, lollipop lift and an anchor lift. An implant is often recommended.
Your abdomen will be evaluated for excess tissue and weakness in the abdominal wall. The incision is quite low in the bikini line (just above the pubic area) and the length of the incision will vary based on your individual situation. The incision can be designed to be hidden under the bathing suit. Internal sutures are placed in several areas to firm up the abdominal muscles and flatten the tummy and the excess skin is removed.
