At Northwestern Specialists in Plastic Surgery, it pleases us to see our patients achieve the results they want from their selected treatment. The ease with which a satisfactory outcome can be achieved is often surprising to patients. Many express that they would have acted sooner had they known how easy their process would be. One of the processes that has a profound effect on many women is the mommy makeover. Here, we discuss a few things about this treatment that many people don’t realize.
- You can have a mommy makeover even if you’re not a mom.
The term mommy makeover is used when a woman wishes to refine the parts of her body that have been affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, as you may know, the breasts and belly naturally change over time. They may increase and decrease in size with weight fluctuations just as easily as they would during pregnancy. Therefore, the combination of procedures commonly involved in a mommy makeover could suit any woman interested in better body contours.
- Tummy and breasts are just the beginning.
Mommy makeover protocols don’t have to be limited to any given area. Many women who undergo procedures like liposuction or abdominoplasty also express an interest in thigh lift surgery. Women who undergo breast and abdominal procedures to address their aging body also desire a facial refresher and include blepharoplasty or a facelift into their course of treatment. Understanding this, you can enter into your makeover journey with a big picture idea of what you wish to achieve.
- A mommy makeover doesn’t have to begin and end with surgery.
We pride ourselves on conducting a thorough consultation and evaluation for every patient. Those interested in a mommy makeover can explore nonsurgical options that can maximize their appearance. For example, laser treatments may remove spider veins or stretch marks and tighten skin that is lax but not in need of surgical tightening. A popular inclusion in today’s mommy makeovers is nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, which can refine the labia and also restore youthful behavior in the vaginal mucosa, improving firmness as well as lubrication.
The staff in our Chicago plastic surgery practice is here to help you plan out the best mommy makeover process for your needs. To learn more, call 312.266.6240.
