Mommy Makeovers in Virginia Beach
Associates in Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach offers the best in “Mommy Makeovers.” Mommy Makeover is a term that is now being used nationally to describe cosmetic surgical procedures, designed to correct some of the unwanted changes to a woman’s body from giving birth.
Mommy Makeovers generally include cosmetic surgical procedures directed at returning the breast to its lifted position, as well as replacing the volume loss sometimes associated with giving birth. In regards to treating the changes in female breasts associated with giving birth and nursing, everything from breast lifts, breast reductions, and breast augmentations or some combination thereof can be a component of the Mommy Makeover.
What Happens After Pregnancy
The skin of the abdominal area, as a consequence of pregnancy, is stretched in an amount that may be unpleasing to the patient. The muscle layer also becomes stretched, losing some of its tone, and leaving the abdomen with a less than flat appearance.
When correcting the abdominal area, the Mommy Makeover can involve liposuction alone, a mini-abdominoplasty, a full abdominoplasty or even lipo-abdominoplasty. Each of these procedures could be the appropriate procedure for a given patient.
A combination of breast and abdominal procedures is tolerated by healthy patients. This allows for a single anesthetic and recuperation period. Breast lifts, breast reductions, or breast augmentations combined with either an abdominal liposuction, a mini abdominoplasty, a full abdominoplasty or even a lipo-abdominoplasty can be provided as an outpatient procedure. For those who would find it more convenient, an overnight stay in our facility with private nursing staff is available.
