Mommy Makeover Edmonton

Looking to restore your pre-pregnancy body? A Mommy Makeover includes a number of transformative surgeries such as a breast augmentation & abdominoplasty to help rejuvenate your appearance.

A ‘mommy makeover’ is a combination of cosmetic surgeries including breast augmentation and abdominoplasty designed to help women rejuvenate their bodies after pregnancy.

Combining multiple plastic surgery procedures into a single operation is a cost-effective way for patients to achieve their cosmetic goals with a single recovery period. This is especially convenient for patients with young children at home.

When To Consider a Mommy Makeover

The body undergoes many changes after childbirth: breasts lose volume, abdominal muscles stretch and excess weight accumulates in the hips, thighs and buttocks.

Plastic surgeons often recommend this cosmetic procedure to patients who have:

  • Sagging or uneven breasts
  • Stretched areolas
  • Decreased breast volume
  • Buildup of extra fat deposits around their abdomen, thighs and waist which are resistant to diet and exercise
  • Abdominal muscles which have stretched and separated due to pregnancy
  • Had a C-section, resulting in excess fat around the surgical scar
  • Breasts that have become so large during pregnancy that they cause back pain & a disproportionate figure

A board-certified plastic surgeon can help determine the right combination of cosmetic procedures to fit your needs and lifestyle, providing the most effective aesthetic results.

What’s Involved in a Mommy Makeover?

One of the great advantages of a Mommy Makeover is that it can truly be customized to your aesthetic needs. Most patients tend to concentrate on three areas: breasts, abdomen and hips.

The top 3 Mommy Makeover Procedures are:

1. Breast Augmentation

For some patients, their breasts can decrease significantly in size after pregnancy, especially if they have been breast feeding.

A breast augmentation will increase the size of your breast and give them a naturally rounder and firmer appearance. This can be accomplished either by using a saline or a silicone implant.

A breast augmentation can have many benefits for new moms including:

  • It is a long-term solution for achieving an ideal figure
  • It results in a more youthful looking figure
  • Allows your clothes and swimwear to fit better

2. Abdominoplasty

A pregnancy can cause your abdominal muscles to stretch and separate, leaving you with stretch marks and extra soft tissue around your middle.

Plastic surgeons often recommend an abdominoplasty for new mothers as it can remove loose/excess skin and fat as well as tighten the muscles in the abdominal wall. In addition, this procedure can remove stretch marks.

An abdominoplasty has many benefits including:

  • Creation of a flatter, tighter and more contoured abdomen
  • Long-lasting results
  • More youthful appearance
  • Eliminates stretch marks

3. Liposuction

During pregnancy, your body accumulates and retains fat deposits which can become very difficult to get rid of.

Even though diligent exercise and a healthy diet can help you reach your target weight, these pockets of fat often remain, compromising the overall look of your figure. For this reason, many plastic surgeons recommend liposuction as part of the Mommy Makeover treatment plan.

Liposuction can be a great enhancement to a breast augmentation and abdominoplasty and provides many benefits including:

  • Can be performed on many areas of the body
  • Long-term results
  • Firmer, more contoured appearance
  • The results of liposuction are almost immediate

4. Breast Reduction

A breast reduction is a common choice for Mommy Makeover patients. If your breasts grew significantly during pregnancy and are creating pain or a disproportionate figure, this may be the right option for you.

This procedure involves remove excess breast tissue and reshaping the breast to the right size and proportions as determined by your plastic surgeon.

A breast reduction has many benefits for patients including:

  • No more physical discomfort such as neck or back aches
  • Makes participating in physical activities easier
  • More proportional figure
  • Smaller, lighter and firmer breasts
