The Mommy Makeover is an operation that can be absolutely fantastic, by enhancing and improving a woman’s breasts and stomach area. The procedure involves work on both the breasts and stomach during the same surgical operation. By doing them at one time the results can be even more dramatic and successful, with many women having amazing success.
The Mommy Makeover is typically a breast augmentation or breast lift combined with a tummy tuck and/or liposuction. The woman choosing this procedure has often had children, hence the name “mommy” in the title. Other patients might do this procedure if they have had aging of the breasts, weight loss, and other operations on the body. By combining the results of breast surgery and stomach surgery, the overall effect and results can be even more dramatic. This is because as the breasts become fuller and perkier, the stomach area is simultaneously getting more flat and thin.
The Mommy Makeover results depend on the exact operation that is done and can vary from woman to woman. Breast augmentation or enlargement can give different results than breast lift surgery. This is an important topic reviewed more in depth here. Either operation combined with a flat and thin stomach looks great together.
The tummy tuck or abdominoplasty part of the Mommy Makeover tends to be the harder procedure to heal from because of the muscle tightening preformed. Dr. Saunders uses a “Pain-Buster” to help with this recovery. In his opinion it has revolutionized the recovery, by making it less painful and easier. The Pain-Buster is a device that trickles lidocaine into the muscle area of the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). This machine has had fantastic results with decreased pain. It is the greatest advance in this operation in the last decade. The days of hospitals and morphine products are a thing of the past.
Dr. Saunders does extra muscle tightening which he calls the “California Corset”. He trained for almost ten years at the renowned University of California, hence the name “California Corset”. He tightens the muscles from the rib cage to the pubis bone twice. This reinforces the repair and gives a more tight and attractive result to the operation.
The Mommy Makeover costs will vary from person to person depending on their particular procedure. For more information, please make sure you read more about Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction.
