Motherhood is a time of life when many women take pride and happiness in watching their child grow. However, the aftermath of pregnancy can result in a combination of cosmetic imperfections like stretch marks, deflated breasts, excess abdominal tissue, and stubborn fat deposits. These issues can affect a woman’s self-confidence. A Mommy Makeover combines several surgical procedures at once to help women restore the body they once had or have always desired. Every mother deserves a treat, give Dr. Scott Aaronson a call to schedule a consultation in Palm Springs and find out which procedure is best for you.
What Areas Can a Mommy Makeover Correct?
Mommy Makeover Options
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, can correct changes to the abdomen caused by pregnancy, heredity, aging, or weight fluctuations. This procedure can tighten and firm the abdominal muscles and remove lax tissue to restore definition and contour the tummy.
Standard Tummy Tuck Surgery
- Removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower abdomen
- Tightens separated or weakened abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
- Beneficial after multiple pregnancies
Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery
- Removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen
- Tightens separated or weakened abdominal muscles below the navel
- Beneficial for patients with minimal excess skin whose abdominal laxity is confined to the lower abdomen
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can remove localized fat deposits using a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) to create a more youthful and slender body contour. This procedure can be used on the following trouble areas:
Breast AugmentationBreast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses saline or silicone breast implants to restore volume and fullness to the breasts. It can also improve symmetry and shape to help women who have deflated breasts achieve a more balanced and feminine figure.
Breast LiftBreast lift surgery can restore the breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning remaining tissue for a firmer, more youthful aesthetic. The type of incision required for breast lift surgery will depend on the severity of your condition.
