If you are past your childbearing years and find yourself avoiding mirrors or feeling completely dissatisfied with your body, a “Mommy Makeover” may be right for you. A “Mommy Makeover” is a term used to describe the surgical work to correct the common physical changes that can occur during and following a pregnancy. Most often this includes procedures for your breasts and abdomen to lift, tighten and tuck where needed.
Specifically, when it comes to your breasts, a Mommy Makeover here in Lubbock can help you with these:
After nursing for months to years, breasts can lose their volume and can be deflated looking. A Mommy Makeover with a breast lift can remove excess skin, shift the location of your nipple, and reduce the size of your areola. The breasts can be “lifted” to better shape and position.
If you have a significant reduction in breast volume, an implant may be your option to increase your breast size. Implants can be paired with a breast lift.
Some women find that as a result of pregnancy hormones and nursing that their breasts have increased in size, often resulting in discomfort. Your Mommy Makeover may include a breast reduction to return to a more comfortable size and shape. A reduction can also be done in tandem with a breast lift.
If you are ready to come into our office in Lubbock to plan your Mommy Makeover, here are a few things to remember:
- You will achieve the best and longest-lasting results if you are past your childbearing years.
- If your Mommy Makeover also includes working on your abdomen, the surgeries on your breasts and abdomen can be completed in one or two appointments. Consult with your doctor on the approach that is best for you.
- Smokers should avoid nicotine for at least six weeks before and post surgery for the best healing.
