Why a Mommy Makeover Might Be Right for You

Becoming a mom might be your greatest accomplishment. There’s nothing like having a beautiful child who shares some of your physical qualities and personality attributes. But if one thing’s for sure, childbirth isn’t easy. From being pregnant for nine months and to the challenges postpartum, you’ve endured many changes for your little one. 

One of the biggest challenges new mothers experience is the many body changes they encounter. You may no longer have the trim hourglass shape or the perky breasts you once had. While some body changes may get better with time, others may never go away.

L.A. Vinas Plastic Surgery, with three locations in Florida, provides Mommy Makeovers to patients who want to get their prebaby body back. 

Permanent changes from pregnancy 

The female body is beautiful and powerful. Think of how amazing it is that your body adapted to nourish your baby for eight months. But as you go on to the months and years after pregnancy, there are some changes you’ve probably noticed that just don’t seem to go away.

Some permanent body changes include:

Although these changes aren’t hazardous to your health, many women wish to address them for cosmetic concerns.

Address all problem areas at once

Many moms find it incredibly hard to find the time to diet and workout on top of taking care of their kids. Even those who did slim down are often unhappy with their sagging breasts and deflated buttocks.

A Mommy Makeover is designed to improve many of the changes caused by pregnancy in one procedure. Luis Viñas, MD, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has gained national recognition for his ability to transform patients’ bodies in a dramatic, but natural-looking, way. 

During a Mommy Makeover, Dr. Viñas focuses on improving the shape of the breasts and abdomen to give you an hourglass shape. He may do this with procedures like:

If you’d like to improve the shape of your buttocks, Dr. Viñas can remove fat from other body parts and redistribute it into your buttocks.

It’s a personalized procedure

Dr. Viñas tailors each Mommy Makeover to specifically address his clients’ individual needs. Pregnancy and breast-feeding often bring many undesirable changes to the breasts. While some mothers may wish to increase the size of their breasts, others may simply be looking for higher-sitting breasts.

Breasts 

Breast augmentation is for women who want to increase the size of their breasts with implants. It’s important to note that breast augmentation does not change the positioning of your breasts, but can be used in conjunction with a breast lift to give them a more perky position. 

A breast lift can help address sagging skin and give your chest a more supple, appealing shape. Naturally larger-chested women may desire a breast reduction surgery to create a more ideal breast shape.

Abdomen

You may have noticed that your abdomen muscles and skin have stretched and your tummy is more flabby. A tummy tuck removes this excess skin and tightens the abdomen muscles to give you a tighter and flatter tummy.

If you have large or uneven fat deposits, you might need liposuction to get the results you are looking for. During liposuction, Dr. Viñas makes a series of incisions and uses a thin-tube called a cannula to suction away fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs, back or hips.

2-3 weeks to recovery

A Mommy Makeover is usually an outpatient procedure meaning that you will go home after its completed. While a Mommy Makeover usually involves multiple procedures, Dr. Viñas undertands the importance of undergoing a safe recovery in the shortest time possible. Most of his patients are happy and healed in only 2-3 weeks.
