What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic surgeries that target loose or sagging skin, deflated or droopy breasts, excess fat, and more. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we help Tampa mothers feel more confident about their bodies after completing their families. Dr. Mang’s goal is to create a custom surgery with a combination of techniques to address each patient’s problem areas.
Who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
You are a good candidate for a mommy makeover in Tampa, FL if:
You’re in overall good health
You’ve been within 15 pounds of your goal weight for at least six weeks
You are done having children
A mommy makeover surgery helps patients reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies.
What procedures can be done during a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is customized for each patient’s needs. The areas that Dr. Mang treats at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery include:
Abdomen: Excessive fat, loose and sagging skin, or stretch marks can all be resolved during a mommy makeover. Liposuction and/or a tummy tuck can be used to fix the abdominals too. A tummy tuck can tighten any muscle separation that some mothers experience after giving birth.
Breasts: Loss of breast tissue or volume, drooping breasts, or excess skin can all be addressed by Dr. Mang. He offers breast augmentation, breast augmentation with fat grafting, breast lift, breast reconstruction, breast revision, and breast reduction surgeries.
Lower body: With the help of a lower body lift with liposuction, excess fat or sagging skin in the hips, thighs, or buttocks can be fixed.
Ultimately, a mommy makeover is personalized so that each patient can address the areas they want to improve.
Tips for preparing for mommy makeover surgery
To prepare best for a mommy makeover in Tampa, FL, you should:
Maintain a healthy weight: While mommy makeover procedures do remove excess fat, they aren’t meant to be a weight loss surgery.
Save money: A mommy makeover is expensive and can include many surgeries. The average mommy makeover costs anywhere from $7,500 – $15,000, which is generally not covered by your insurance.
Think about the future: Since your mommy makeover surgery is an investment, you want to decide if you’re done having children. If you are unsure, Dr. Mang recommends waiting to have your mommy makeover as another pregnancy can significantly affect your results.
Be prepared for recovery: Since a mommy makeover oftentimes involves many surgeries, it can take a long time to recover.
Schedule your surgery: You want to wait at least six months after giving birth or nursing before getting any type of plastic surgery. This is because it takes time for your hormones to stabilize. Hormones affect how quickly you heal.
Get pre-surgery testing: Our plastic surgery center requires every patient gets some testing done to be cleared for surgery. During your consultation, we can provide more details on which tests are required.
