Mommy makeover has become a popular expression for the correction of changes of the female body occurring after pregnancy and breast feeding. Those changes become more pronounced as the number of pregnancies and breast feeding episodes increases. A mommy makeover is a combination of tummy tuck / abdominoplasty, liposuction / SAFELipo, breast augmentation with or without concurrent breast lift (augmentation mastopexy) and sometimes buttock augmentation with the Brazilian butt lift.
In our Caribbean plastic surgery clinic at Trinidad Institute of Plastic Surgery clients from all over the Caribbean – Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, Grenada – as well as medical tourists from Miami, New York, Toronto and London ask for it every day to revert the effects of child bearing – laxity of the abdominal wall, excessively stretched abdominal skin, diet and exercise resistant “baby fat” particularly in waists and belly, decreased fullness of breast with or without sagging of breasts.
Mommy makeover – a combination of body contouring procedures
Body contouring with mommy makeover plastic surgery systematically addresses all changes from the collar bone to the knees. It follows the aesthetic unit principle fundamental to plastic surgery – the torso is viewed as an aesthetic unit, much like in classic Greek or Roman sculptures, with the subunits breasts, abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
The plastic surgeon then addresses each aesthetic subunit individually – silicone breast implants are placed and a breast lift is performed if the breast are sagging in addition to any loss of fullness, SAFELipo liposuction of thighs, abdomen, waists and lower back is performed, possibly saving some of the aspirated fat for later use in buttock augmentation with the Brazilian butt lift and finally the indicated variant of a tummy tuck procedure (mini abdominoplsty, full abdominoplasty, hybrid abdominoplasty) is carried out.
Mommy makeover – transformative body contouring for you
Mommy makeover plastic surgery is the most comprehensive body contouring procedure to reshape the female body. Optimally it is done once there are no plans for further pregnancies and at least six months after completion of the last pregnancy / breast feeding episode. Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover should be close to their normal body weight and have no underlying medical problems. During the preoperative consultation and education process with our board certified plastic surgeons clients learn about the benefits of the procedure and possible surgical risks.
The recovery period is largely determined by the extent of the tummy tuck procedure – shorter in case of a mini abdominoplasty or hybrid abdominoplasty, longer for a full abdominoplasty. The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia and a requires an overnight observation period in the medical facility. International clients should plan for a five to seven days postoperative stay in Trinidad. All clients contemplating mommy makeover plastic surgery must be prepared for a considerable financial commitment due to the extent of this comprehensive body contouring procedure. It is of course entirely feasible to divide the mommy makeover procedure into separate stages and operative sessions with a reduced commitment of resources (time, money, effort) to each stage, but a higher grand total if all is added up after completion of the final stage. Single stage mommy makeover has a distinct “makeover and get over” advantage and a lower total cost!
