If the mommy makeover procedure involves a tummy tuck, the surgeon will make a hip to hip incision right above the pubic region. The patient may need liposuction for the improvement of the contours in particular areas. The surgeon will make small incisions in discreet locations during liposuction to remove fatty pockets.
In some cases, breast enhancement and breast lift may also be an element of the mommy makeover. The surgeon will aim to hide the incision lines within the natural breast creases.
If the woman suffers from volume loss following pregnancy, the surgeon will insert saline or silicone implants via the incision made around the breast. In case the breasts are drooping heavily, the loose skin from the breasts may be excised to perform a moderate breast lift with breast implants.
This helps develop tighter and more youthful-looking breasts. Additionally, the patient may undergo liposuction in the hips, abdomen, thighs, flanks, or hips. Generally, a tummy tuck is performed along with liposuction to develop a tighter, smoother abdomen, and reduce stretch marks.
The surgeon cautiously closes the incisions with sutures once the procedure is complete. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for mommy makeover.
