WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

A mommy makeover is just like what it sounds like! It is a procedure to makeover moms from head to toe. The treatment can be customized to address each of your unique cosmetic concerns, from sagging, deflated breasts, and enlarged areolas to weakened six-pack muscles and an accumulation of fat on the hips. A typical mommy makeover involves breast surgery, liposuction, abdominoplasty, labiaplasty, and facial rejuvenation with injectables and dermal fillers.

Of course, Dr. Delgado can add a thigh lift, arm lift, blepharoplasty, or brow lift into the mix if you request. It’s all about achieving your individual goals for improvement so that you feel confident and secure in your appearance once again.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON PROCEDURES INCLUDED WITH A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

Breast surgery – Breast augmentation or breast reduction can be performed to help restore a more youthful breast appearance, while a breast lift is undergone to elevate drooping breasts and relocate the nipples in a more attractive location.

Tummy tuck – Abdominoplasty can help restore weakened or separated six-pack muscles after pregnancy while also reducing excess sagging skin and stubborn fat.

Liposuction – Liposuction works to sculpt and trim areas of fat that are especially resistant to dieting and exercise.

Labiaplasty – Labiaplasty restores both form and function to the vaginal region, trimming the excess skin and tissue that causes discomfort and inhibits sexual response.

Facial rejuvenation – Facial rejuvenation can be performed surgically or non-surgically to wipe away lines, creases, wrinkles, and folds, restore facial fat volume, and create a more appealing and inviting facial expression.

WHAT WILL MY RECOVERY ENTAIL?

This helps to minimize the risk of blood clots, improve your circulation, and elevate your mood.
