Mommy Makeover Scottsdale
Mommy makeovers include a variety of procedures that are tailored to the individual. 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. 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 in producing the most possible hour glass shape of the truncal area in the mommy make over.
