If you have researched plastic surgeries before then you have most likely heard the term “mommy makeover.” Although it is a popular term, many wonder what it actually means. The mommy makeover is a surgery that combines various procedures designed to reach your goals. The term is coined because it is popular with women who want to get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies. Dr. Nakamura is an experienced plastic surgeon in mommy makeovers. He will create your personalized mommy makeover based on your individual needs and goals.
What Procedures Are Done in a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers include procedures that will address the main areas of the body, the breasts, abdomen, and waist. Surgical options include breast augmentation, reduction, lift, tummy tuck, waist tuck, and liposuction. A mini tummy tuck can be done in place of a full tummy tuck, depending on your individual needs.
This surgery is done for women who would like larger, shapelier breasts. It involves placing implants into a pocket either under the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue. Implants can be customized to fit your specific goals.
This procedure reduces the size of very large, pendulous breasts that are disproportionate to your overall body. Often times, women with large breasts have many medical concerns like back and neck pain, shoulder pain, and skin irritation. This procedure is done by removing excess skin, fat, and tissue. Also, we will reposition the nipples and areola to a natural placement.
A breast lift helps to reposition sagging breasts to a higher position. It is done by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape the breast contour. This surgery is often combined with a breast augmentation if the patient has lost volume in their breasts.
The tummy tuck procedure removes excess skin and fat that is concentrated in the abdomen. This surgery also tightens the abdominal wall muscles. It creates a slimmer abdomen for those who are self-conscious about their stomach.
Mini Tummy Tuck
If your stomach is already fairly slim, but you have excess skin and fat located in the lower abdomen area, then the mini tummy tuck can help to remove this. The mini tummy tuck is focused on the area under the navel to remove skin and tighten muscles.
The waist tuck is an extension on the tummy tuck to remove fat and skin from the waist and hip area. Women who have “muffin tops” can benefit from this surgery so they have a slimmer waist. During the waist tuck, Dr. Nakamura can slightly lift the buttocks as well for an overall enhanced look.
Liposuction is a very popular plastic surgery procedure done to remove fat. It can be done in multiple areas of the body. Liposuction is often done with mommy makeovers to enhance the overall results and improve contours.
