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 working on both the breasts and stomach at 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. Please see the before and after photos of this operation linked here.
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.
Dr. Saunders uses the latest surgical techniques to achieve the best results. He will personally review in extensive detail the woman’s desires and goals. The consultation is thorough, extensive, and extremely informative. Dr. Saunders will work closely with you to understand your wishes and wants.
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 by an educational writing linked here. But either operation combined with a flat and thin stomach looks great together.
Satisfaction and results for this operation tend to be extremely high. Although no doctor can promise a prefect result, the woman having a mommy makeover with Dr. Saunders has a high success of feeling that the result was highly successful and rewarding.
The recovery is important to understand. The tummy tuck or abdominoplasty tends to be the harder procedure to heal from because of the muscle tightening usually done. 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.
