Body / Mommy Makeover

What is the mommy makeover procedure?

A mommy makeover is a term used to describe the procedures needed to “fix” the breasts and belly of a woman after having children. The mommy makeover can include any or all of the following procedures: tummy tuck, corset-abdominoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation, and/or breast uplift surgery. Extreme mommy makeovers can also include rejuvenation of the vagina and its appearance. The procedures performed depend on the patient’s needs and desires.

A tummy tuck surgically tightens the muscles of the lower abdomen and removes over-stretched skin and some stretch marks. Liposuction maybe used alone or in combination with a tummy tuck. This will be discussed in consultation. Breast augmentation with implants will fill and lift deflated breasts, enhancing the overall appearance. The decision regarding size, style and type of implant will be discussed during consultation. Patients may desire a breast lift over implant enhancement. This too will be discussed during consultation.

Am I a candidate for a “Mommy Makeover” procedure?

You may be considered a good candidate if your answer is yes to any of the following questions:
● Do you have flabby or crepe-like skin on your stomach that weight loss or exercise cannot fix?
● Do you have stretch marks and excess skin you cannot get rid of on your stomach?
● Do you have breasts that have lost their “perkiness” and hence, sag?
● Do you have breasts that have lost volume and appear flattened?
● Is your body completely different than before you had kids?

What are the results?

Results can help improve your-self-esteem by repairing what pregnancy and nursing took away. Breast size and shape is enhanced, and the belly is flattened and/or tightened.

What can I expect?

Because breasts deflate with pregnancy and/or nursing, a large enough implant is needed to effectively change the shape and size of the breast. Imagine the effect of an “egg” in a sock vs a “grapefruit” in the sock. The larger object creates more shape and volume is restored. Liposuction and/or a tummy tuck will help you get back into your clothes and feel good about you! Tightening the belly may increase recovery time, but every patient professes that “it’s totally worth it”!

What are my options?

Breast options include implants, uplift, reduction, fat transfer and a possible combination of the aforementioned procedures. Belly options include liposuction, fat transfer, tummy tuck, corset abdominoplasty, and other skin reduction surgeries. Vaginal rejuvenation can occur with surgery, lasers, and/or injectables. As bodies vary, your needs and options will be discussed during consultation for the best possible outcome!

Dear Future Clients of Dr. C, After I had kids and breastfed both of them, I was left with deflated “dog ears” for boobs. The worst part was I worked hard to get my body back and was actually in the best shape of my life after I had kids, except for my boobs! Since no amount of working out or eating right would bring them back from the sad state they were in, I started looking into what my options were. Deciding to get breast implants was the best decision I could have made! It gave me back what nourishing both of my children had taken from me. I wouldn’t change the decision to breast feed, but I wouldn’t change the decision to have breast augmentation surgery either! I did it for me and couldn’t be more pleased with the results! Dr. Collini gave me back the confidence to wear anything I want and be even happier with my body than I was before having my kids!
Thank you Dr. Collini!!
