Mommy Makeover Scottsdale
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers include a variety of procedures that are tailored to the individual. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Lille can create a personalized surgical plan for your mommy makeover in Scottsdale that can restore the pre-pregnancy appearance of your body.
Following pregnancies, women often present with a spectrum of clinical findings. They can have as little as a loss of breast tissue and only require a breast augmentation. However, more than likely, multiple procedures will be required.
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
When you come in for your mommy makeover consultation in Scottsdale, Dr. Lille can examine the areas of your body that you want to correct through surgery so that he can create a custom surgical plan. Dr. Lille will also go over your relevant medical history and perform some tests to determine if you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover. It is important to note that you should no longer plan on having children after your mommy makeover.
Options for a Mommy Makeover
During your consultation, Dr. Lille will go over the options available to you for your mommy makeover. Some of the options include.
The breasts, besides restoring lost volume could also require a lift. The type of lift depends on the degree of descent of the nipple below the bottom breast fold. If the nipple is at or slightly below the breast fold, a donut lift can be performed. In contrast, if the nipple is significantly below the fold, then a full breast lift with an inverted T-scar is required.
The back rolls where fat protrudes when the bra is placed and excess fat in the flank and hip areas displaying what we call the “muffin tops” that are areas resistant to loss of weight. Vaser Liposelection is the most advanced form of Ultrasound and a procedure that Dr. Lille uses to provide the least traumatic method of contouring the most optimal amount of fat.
In addition, the abdominal wall and skin lose its ability to contract after stretching from pregnancy. The lax skin and abdominal wall can be addressed by a full or an extended tummy tuck where excess skin is removed, and the muscles tightened in different areas of weakness.
A critical area for Dr Lille is the upper abdomen. It is contoured by removing the deep fat to allow the abdomen to be more like a natural belly that’s in shape rather than the artificial, post-tummy tuck look of a completely flat appearance. The belly button is a very important component of the natural look and a carefully crafted “inny” is placed.
Often times, the pubic area requires contouring by surgically removing fat and lifting the region during the tummy tuck procedure. Pulling the skin flap in various directions and the other techniques discussed all contribute to producing the most possible hourglass shape of the truncal area in the mommy makeover.
Recovering from a Mommy Makeover
Recovery time will vary between patients based on the extent of the work performed during their mommy makeover in Scottsdale. One of the benefits of a mommy makeover is that there is only one recovery period required as multiple procedures are performed during one session.
Issues like swelling, bruising, and some discomfort are to be expected. Surgical compression garments may need to be worn throughout the recovery process. Medication can be provided to manage pain and discomfort. Details post-surgical instructions will be provided to help you through the recovery process.
The Cost of a Mommy Makeover
When you come in for your mommy makeover consultation in Scottsdale, Dr. Lille will go over the details of your procedure including the cost. Price will be based on the procedures performed during your mommy makeover and other factors like anesthesia fees.
