Mommy Makeover Surgery in Richmond
Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but it can eventually have an impact on a mother’s overall physical appearance. Excess fat pockets, loose skin, stretch marks, and breast volume loss or gain are some of the common concerns that may occur after pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover plastic surgery procedure is a comprehensive solution to help a mom restore her pre-pregnancy figure.
The surgeon will identify the areas that may require cosmetic procedures as a part of a mommy makeover. An elaborate surgical plan will be prepared after considering the patient’s health, anatomical needs, and her personal aesthetic goals.
Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin are board certified plastic surgeons providing mommy makeover and other procedures to patients in Richmond, VA and surrounding communities, including Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, and Chevy Chase.
If a mom is bothered by the adverse aesthetic effects of pregnancy in multiple areas of her body, she may make a suitable candidate for a mommy makeover plastic surgery. Moms who have received a C-section surgery will also make equally good candidates as the ones who have given a natural birth.
The surgeon will choose a candidate who does not have plans for another pregnancy in the foreseeable future. The general health of the woman, medical history and past surgeries, and the woman’s unique aesthetic goals will also be taken into account while deciding her candidature for a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is one of the most customizable procedures, and the best surgical plan will be finalized in close consultation between the plastic surgeon and the patient. Two or more of the following procedures are generally included as a part of a mommy makeover:
• Breast Implants
• Breast Lift
• Breast Reduction
• Body Lift
• Body Contouring
• Cellulite Reduction
• Stretch Mark Removal
• Non-invasive Treatments
Breast augmentation may be a part of a mommy makeover if the candidate has lost considerable breast volume following pregnancy or breastfeeding. If the breasts are heavily sagging, a breast lift may be included. In some cases, the woman may develop excessively large breasts, which can be corrected with breast reduction surgery.
One of the most popular procedures that is included in mommy makeovers is liposuction, which can help enhance body contours with less invasive techniques. Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from in and around Richmond, VA and other areas such as Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, and Chevy Chase for mommy makeover surgery.
Non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures may also be included as a part of a mommy makeover.
Recovery and Results
Depending on the number and extent of surgical procedures involved, a patient’s initial recovery may take about two to four weeks. Most patients are usually able to resume their normal routine or return to work in about two weeks. Lifting of heavy weights and vigorous exercises should be avoided for one to two months. The results with a mommy makeover will establish gradually over several months as swelling and bruising subsides entirely.
