Why Might Someone Consider a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers are an effective option for anyone who has had children and wants to regain their pre-pregnancy body. Typically, Dr. Gray sees patients who have issues in two areas: breast and body.

Breast

Due to factors seen in pregnancy and childbirth, many women have lost volume in their breasts. Other women notice that their breasts have begun to droop or sag.

Body

Weight gain is another common condition seen after childbirth, particularly around the abdomen and hips. Pregnancy can also cause loose skin, stretch marks, pockets of fat, and stretched abdominal muscles that lead to a bulging tummy.

What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

As the term mommy makeover is broad, the benefits of the procedure are also broad. The intent is to provide a tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking figure. Patients who undergo a mommy makeover will likely see a drastic boost in self-confidence, body image, and desire to be healthy.

What Exactly is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is an umbrella term for a set of procedures that addresses the problems listed previously. The mommy makeover’s methods do not have to be combined in one single way, as each plan will meet the patient’s unique needs.

For example, a patient could choose breast augmentation, 360 liposuction, and fat transfer to the buttocks. Other patients may choose breast augmentation with a breast lift, liposuction, and tummy tuck. The possibilities are plentiful, and it is up to you and Dr. Gray to come up with a plan that best suits your goals and concerns.

What Mommy Makeover Procedures Can I Choose From?

Dr. Gray offers a variety of surgical procedures that you can choose from, including:

As the most popular cosmetic surgery option in the U.S., Breast augmentation uses breast implants to increase the size, fullness, and projection of the breasts. Breast augmentation can restore volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. This can be done on its own or combined with a breast lift.

Many postpartum women experience deflated and droopy breasts after breastfeeding. Breast lifts raise the breasts to a more youthful-looking position on the chest. This can be done by tightening or removing excess skin and tissues. It can also reposition or reshape large areolas. Dr. Gray offers a variety of breast lift techniques and will help you determine your best options.

Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat from the midsection, tightens loose abdominal muscles, and recreates a natural looking belly button. Dr. Gray’s methods allow for a short, easily concealable scar and a natural looking belly button.

Dr. Gray uses liposuction to remove sections of excess fat throughout the body. Liposuction is great for mommy makeover patients who have fat that can’t be reached through exercise and diet alone. The extracted fat can also be transferred to contour other areas of the body.

Patients who do not necessarily need tummy tuck surgery may opt for liposuction with BodyTite skin tightening of the abdomen. This can reduce fat and tighten the tummy without the downtime of a tummy tuck.

When Dr. Gray removes fat with liposuction, he can carefully place it into other areas such as the buttocks or breasts. His methods allow for the body to reestablish a blood supply with the transplanted fat, making the results smooth, long-lasting, and natural-looking.

Bay Area Mommy Makeover FAQ

Mommy makeovers take between one to two days, depending on the demands of the procedures that you’ve selected. Dr. Gray can explain this to you after you’ve decided on the procedures that you’d like to undergo.

Because of the combined nature of surgeries, a mommy makeover is considered an invasive procedure. Any time a combination surgery takes place, the overall risks increase. For this reason, patients must find an experienced plastic surgeon that has the training and skill to perform multiple procedures in one setting. Under the hands of a skilled surgeon, the risks greatly decrease, and complications are rare.

Each of our patients is given a complimentary Biocorneum scar cream as part of the surgery package. For most patients, surgery incisions will heal into a thin line and will fade over time.

The cost of your mommy makeover in the Bay Area depends on a variety of factors. The price will primarily be determined by the procedures you choose and the amount of time it takes. We can provide you with an estimate after you are seen by Dr. Gray in consultation.

It is recommended that all pregnancies are completed before a patient decides to have a mommy makeover. While a mommy makeover won’t affect pregnancy, a pregnancy may compromise the results of a mommy makeover. Additional skin stretching and weight gain is inevitable. Patients who are uncertain if they will have additional children should consult with Dr. Gray to discuss the best approach to take.
