A Guide to Mommy Makeover Breast Procedures
- Posted on: May 29 2014
Pregnancy and early motherhood is a time of great change in a woman’s life, and those changes take a heavy toll on a woman’s body. For those women that are done with child-bearing and looking to restore their body, Mommy Makeover procedures offer a customized solution. There are number of options available to women who wish to revitalize their breasts.
Here is an overview of the Mommy Makeover Breast Procedures available to mothers.
Mommy Makeover Breast Lift
The breast lift procedure, formally known as a mastopexy, restores breast volume and rejuvenates breasts to a more youthful shape. This corrects breasts that are sagging or droopy following pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. Breast lifts after pregnancy can also reduce enlarged areolas and reposition downward-pointing nipples.
The surgery works by trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissues to achieve an uplifted contour. Following a breast lift, the breasts sit higher on the chest and firmer to the touch.
The results of each breast lift procedure is tailored to the patient, depending on their needs and desires. A woman’s breast size does not change after a breast lift, nor does the fullness in the upper part of the breast. Women who desire larger, smaller or more rounded breasts may consider combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation or breast reduction.
Mommy Makeover Breast Augmentation
A post-maternity breast augmentation involves placing silicone or saline implants to restore or enhance breasts that have become “deflated” in appearance due to the after effects of breastfeeding or age.
During your consultation, your surgeon will help you decide between using saline or silicone implants, and whether the implants will be placed beneath or above the muscle. These choices depend not only on the physical features of each woman, but her goals for surgery as well.
Many women choose to combine a breast augmentation with a breast lift to achieve maximum results and restore their appearance to the way it looked pre-pregnancy.
Mommy Makeover Breast Reduction
Some women experience swelling of the breasts that does not go away after pregnancy and breastfeeding. This increase in breast size can lead to discomfort or even pain. A breast reduction is a possible solution for these issues.
During the breast reduction procedure, fat and glandular tissue are removed, and skin is tightened, forming smaller, lighter breasts. The goal of the surgery is to achieve breasts that are in better proportion with the rest of your body.
