Expert Mommy Makeover in Memphis

No matter how rewarding the process is, you can’t deny that pregnancy takes a toll on your body. The rapid weight gain and loss as well the birth itself can leave you unhappy with your body. That’s where a Mommy Makeover from Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis comes in. A mommy makeover is a common way to talk about the combination of labiaplasty, abdominal and breast surgery. Since this procedure is a combination of other procedures there are several different techniques that can be used to accomplish your goals. The specific techniques used will be determined by your desired amount of restoration, the placement of the incisions, and the type of implants used.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck part of the procedure involved tightening your abdominal muscles and eliminating andy excess skin. This helps flatten a protruding belly and leaves your whole midsection looking more toned. This makes a big difference in how your clothes fit and how you feel about yourself. A mini-tummy tuck can improve your lower belly with less intensive surgery. If the area below the belly button is what bothers you the most, this less invasive procedure to fix loose skin and stretch marks could be a good option. The technique involves a single incision that is made just above the pubic mound, through which one of our surgeons will tighten the loose muscles and remove the excess skin, giving you a smooth, flat abdominal wall.

Breast Surgery
Depending on the look you’re going for, you can opt for one of several different breast surgeries. A breast lift surgery removes excess skin and tightens the tissue around to raise and reshape your breasts. You can also have breast augmentation surgery can enhance the look of your breast with implants.

Labiaplasty
A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora. It’s the most commonly performed vaginal rejuvenation procedure, and the goal is to reduce the labia minora so they do not hang below, or outside of, the labia majora. This surgery can relieve the physical symptoms of enlarged labia, such as pain, discomfort, itching, and irritation, as well as the emotional symptoms that accompany them.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Not everyone is the best candidate for a mommy makeover. You may be a good candidate if:

  • You’ve put in the work to lose weight: a mommy makeover isn’t meant to help you lose weight but is instead supposed to help fix loose skin and body changes after you’ve returned to a healthy, normal weight. It is also important that your weight loss process was healthy and that you don’t smoke or drink.
  • You don’t intend to have more children: While you can get a mommy makeover even if you do plan on having more children, pregnancy will undo the benefits of the procedure. This means you’ll need to have the procedure redone to enjoy the results.
  • It’s been at least six months since you’ve given birth: Giving birth is traumatic for your boy and you need to give yourself time to recover.
  • You stopped breastfeeding at least six months ago: breastfeeding alters the shape of your breast, and you need to wait until they settle into a more permanent place before determining what kind of breast surgery you’ll need as part of your mommy makeover.
