The Mommy Makeover rejuvenates both the breasts and the belly. After pregnancy, or weight loss, the breasts and the belly may lose their youthful contours. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures such as Breast Augmentation and Abdominoplasty designed to restore a more aesthetic appearance and help the way clothes fit.
Mommy Makeover Combinations
The Mommy Makeover is a combination of both Breast Enhancement and Tummy Flattening. The most common combination includes Breast Implants to restore lost breast volume, and a Tummy Tuck to repair the abdominal wall, but other combinations are used whenever needed.
Possible Tummy Tightening Procedures:
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
- Mini Tummy Tuck
Possible Breast Enhancing Procedures:
- Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
- Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)
Here are a few examples illustrated with before and after pictures.
Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation & Vertical Breast Lift
Breast Augmentation alone is the most common Breast Enhancement half of the Mommy Makeover. 40% of the time, however, a Breast Lift is necessary, in conjunction with breast implants, to create more aesthetic breasts. Whether to remove excess skin, lift sagging breasts or raise low nipples, Breast Lifts are a workhorse for restoring breast shape.
In the case above, a Vertical Breast Lift was used to:
- Tighten saggy breasts
- Remove excess lower pole breast skin
- Raise the nipple to a more central position on the breast mound
- Reduce the size of the areolae
A Tummy Tuck was used to:
- Tighten the loose abdominal wall skin
- Remove most of the lower abdominal stretch marks
- Remove excess abdominal fat
- Tighten the abdominal wall muscles
The result is the creation of desired curves and the reduction of unwanted curves for a happy patient
Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation Lift
Here is another example of Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) combined with Mastopexy Augmentation (Breast Augmentation Lift). Her breast goals included:
- Increasing the size of her breasts
- Raising the nipple to a more ideal position
- Increasing upper breast fullness
Her Abdominal goals where to:
- Remove the redundant skin that hung below her waist
- Remove lower abdominal stretch marks
- Remove disproportionate abdominal fat
- Tighten the abdominal muscle to create a flatter stomach
Some of these details were present before pregnancy and were lost. Others were never present and were provided by the Mommy Makeover.
Comparing these Mommy Makeover before and after pictures we can see the improvement in her breast to belly aesthetics. After this Mommy Makeover her breasts are enlarged and lifted, while her abdomen is reduced and flattened.
Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation & Inverted-T Breast Lift
In this case a larger Breast Lift was needed to reshape her pendulous, tubular breasts and reduce the size of her areolae. This type of lift is like a Vertical Breast Lift with the addition of incisions hidden in the fold under the breasts. These photos are composites of the Breast Augmentation Lift and Tummy Tuck,
An Augmentation Mastopexy was used to reshape and enlarge her breasts, while a Tummy Tuck was used to flatten her abdomen and reduce the circumference of her belly. Liposuction was also performed to reduce fat on the lower back, significantly improving the way her clothes fit.
