Mommy Makeover Q & A

Mommy Makeover Ft. LauderdaleWhat is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic procedures to help restore a woman’s body to its youthful pre-pregnancy appearance. It can include tummy tucks, vaginal rejuvenation, liposuction, and breast augmentation. When women find that diet and exercise can only improve so much of their appearances, a mommy makeover can help with the final changes to make women feel more youthful and attractive.

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that eliminates flabby skin in the tummy. When patients lose a lot of weight from around their midsection, the skin on the abdomen can be loose. A tummy tuck removes the extra skin and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles.

A tummy tuck is different from liposuction, although patients may choose to have both procedures done. Whereas a tummy tuck focuses on pulling loose skin taught, liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat below the skin.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical operation that is used to slim, reshape, and contour the body by extracting excess fat deposits. The procedure can be combined with other operations during a mommy makeover. Once the initial inflammation and fluid retention from the surgery have gone down, results will be clear and are long-lasting. Liposuction can be used for removing fat deposits in the: 

  • Abdomen and waist
  • Calves and ankles
  • Cheeks, neck, and chin
  • Hips and buttocks 
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Back 

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Also known as female genital plastic surgery or aesthetic vaginal surgery, vaginal rejuvenation typically combines vaginoplasty, the tightening of the vagina, and/or labiaplasty or vulvaplasty, the reshaping of the vulva or labia which is the outer and inner lips of the vagina. The procedure has become an increasingly popular. For individuals who desire re-contouring following childbirth, dramatic weight loss, aging or injury to genital structures, vaginal rejuvenation can provide increased self-confidence and comfort.
