The joys and rewards of pregnancy and breastfeeding are often accompanied by effects on a woman’s body that are unable to be reversed by diet and exercise alone. Many times pregnancy and breastfeeding will negatively affect the size and shape of the breasts causing them to lose their youthful shape and firmness. Pregnancy may also result in a loss of skin and muscle tone on the abdomen and stretch marks. There may also be persistent pockets of fat on your waist, abdomen, arms, or thighs which do not improve with diet and exercise.
A Mommy Makeover is a newer term to describe a combination of cosmetic procedures that are “tried and true” since they have a long, successful, and safe track record. Also known as post-pregnancy surgery, the mommy makeover procedure focuses on procedures designed to address the areas that are affected most dramatically with pregnancy and breastfeeding, specifically the abdomen and the breasts.
Each mommy makeover procedure is individualized by Dr. DiBello, tailoring the procedure(s) to your needs and goals. The combination of procedures offered to you by Dr. DiBello and that you have elected to undergo will dictate whether these will be done as a single procedure or in stages. Whether the procedures are performed as a single procedure or in stages, Dr. DiBello’s primary concern is your safety while trying to provide you with the optimum outcome. A typical makeover might include a combination of the following procedures:
- Tummy Tuck (Full or Mini Abdominoplasty)
- Breast Augmentation (Lift, Augmentation with Lift, or Reduction)
- Liposuction of the legs, arms or trunk.
To restore a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance of the face, a mommy makeover for some women may include non- surgical enhancements including BOTOX®/Fillers or Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures as well.
Dr. DiBello and his staff are there to consult with you, listen to your needs or concerns, provide thorough answers, and always do it with the level of care and attention. A consultation with Dr. DiBello will help you determine if you are a candidate for a Mommy Makeover. At that time, Dr. DiBello will discuss his personalized approach to your surgery as well as important considerations involved in Mommy Makeover surgery.
