A mommy makeover is one of the most popular combination plastic surgery procedures among moms in Wichita today. Many women want to see significant change in their bodies after going through pregnancy and childbirth and long for the bodies they once had. One reason this combination plastic surgery is so popular is because Dr. Voge of Plastic Surgical Specialists is able to customize each procedure to meet the needs of each individual patient.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
“Mommy Makeover” is a catch-all phrase which refers to a combination of surgeries designed to contour a woman’s body to improve the physical changes that tend to stay around long after childbirth. The breasts and abdomen are typically the main areas of focus in a mommy makeover, as these are the areas that go through the most change during pregnancy. A mommy makeover can address sagging breasts that have lost their volume, C-section scars, separated abdominal muscles and fatty deposits that don’t seem to go away no matter how many hours you’re at the gym. A mommy makeover typically includes a combination of any or all of the following procedures:
- Breast Augmentation – Many moms in Wichita who visit Dr. Voge of Plastic Surgical Specialists are often discouraged with their post-baby breasts because they seem smaller and lack the volume they had before. For women who are experiencing this problem, a breast augmentation is the best way to restore the breasts to their previous glory. During your initial consultation with Dr. Voge you will have the opportunity to express your desired size and shape. She recommends bringing in magazine clippings or pictures from the internet of women who have the look you want so she can better know what your desired results are.
- Breast Lift – Oftentimes, women who choose a breast augmentation also choose to have a breast lift. Moms who chose to breastfeed their children often experience deflated breasts that also sag. In these cases it is best to include a breast lift procedure in your mommy makeover so you will be able to achieve the look you once had, and that you’re longing for in your new stage of life. Dr. Voge is able to make your breasts perkier, remove sagging breast skin, and reposition or reduce the size of your nipples by performing a breast lift during your mommy makeover at her Wichita clinic.
- Tummy Tuck – A tummy tuck is often chosen as part of a mommy makeover by most moms in Wichita. This is because their once flat tummy was stretched beyond recognition during pregnancy and did not “bounce back” like they had hoped. Other times, moms are left with stretch marks or a C-section scar that keeps them from showing their midriff, even in intimate situations with their partner. Remember, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. Rather, a tummy tuck is meant to recontour and redefine a woman’s abdomen and restore separated abdominal muscles if necessary.
- Liposuction – Another common procedure performed during a mommy makeover is liposuction. Liposuction is meant to provide a smoother contour and should not be considered a weight loss procedure. Instead, Dr. Voge of Plastic Surgical Specialists recommends that women in the Wichita area who chose liposuction as part of their mommy makeover be at or near their ideal weight before undergoing liposuction.
