A mommy makeover is a unique and custom-designed plan for patients looking to use elective cosmetic procedures to attain their personal body goals. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee of Huntington Station, NY, can educate patients on the surgeries that might be used in their personalized plan.
What are the different elements of a mommy makeover?
Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee creates a treatment plan for patients based on their unique body troubles and needs. Below are a few of the commonly performed surgeries added into a patient’s mommy makeover plan:
- Breast augmentation – small breasts or breasts that have lost volume due to changes in weight or pregnancy can be increased in size with breast augmentation. This is the addition of a breast implant to restore volume and improve the size of the breasts. In situations where women have breasts of different sizes, implants can rebalance them for a more attractive appearance–and better-fitting bras!
- Breast lift – gravity, weight loss, and age can impact the position of the breasts on the chest. Women experiencing drooping or sagging breasts can resolve this issue with a breast lift procedure, during which excess skin is removed, and the breasts are repositioned on the chest wall.
- Tummy tuck – many area women struggle with a pouch near the front of their stomach after pregnancy and giving birth. Even with diet and exercise, women might still struggle with excess fat and skin in this area. A tummy tuck is effective at tightening the abdominal muscles, removing excess fat, and excising excess skin for a tightened and flatter appearance to the stomach area.
- Liposuction – liposuction is a specialized procedure designed to remove unwanted fat cells from specific areas of the body. In a mommy makeover, it is commonly used in the thighs, abdomen, flanks, and upper arms to contour the body and eliminate stubborn fat from the body.
