Mommy Makeover with Tummy Tuck and Breast Implants
- Posted on: May 5 2020
This 29 year old patient from Cleveland, Ohio came to see Dr. Daniel A. Medalie of Cleveland Plastic Surgery at his Beachwood office to discuss a mommy makeover by tummy tuck surgery and liposuction as well as breast enhancement. She had two pregnancies and also lost around 75 lbs. She is 5’5″ and 145 lbs . On exam she has a great deal of loose skin and muscle of the abdomen as well as some extra fatty tissue. Dr. Medalie proposed an abdominoplasty procedure with muscle plication (tightening) and side and flank liposuction as an outpatient. She agreed and is shown 3 months after her body contouring surgery. She also desired bilateral breast augmentation to help correct her deflated breast appearance. She chose 405 cc silicone implants to be placed in a dual plane technique. In her post op photos, she has excellent reduction of loose skin and stretch marks as well as good tightening of the abdominal wall and is very happy with her body contouring results. Her breasts are fuller and more symmetric and complement her new abdomen.
What Is A Mommy Makeover?
The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia, and buttocks. A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:
- Desired amount of restoration
- Placement of the incisions
- Type of implant used
