Mommy Makeover in Temecula
With all of the joys that motherhood brings, there can be one negative: pregnancy changes a woman’s body. Often, breasts deflate and sag, and the abdomen loses its firm contours. For women experiencing the adverse effects of pregnancy and childbirth, a Mommy Makeover can restore the body to its pre-pregnancy form. A Mommy Makeover in Temecula is a specialized procedure that involves a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and/or breast lift, and liposuction. Together, these procedures allow women to regain their confidence, self-esteem, and body contours after having children.
How Can a Mommy Makeover Help You?
Flatten &Tone Your Abdomen
Following pregnancy, regaining a firm and toned midsection will be more difficult than ever before, and a healthy lifestyle isn’t always enough to accomplish it. Your Mommy Makeover address abdominal dissatisfaction with liposuction and tummy tuck surgery. Regain your pre-baby form with a tighter, firmer, and more sculpted midsection.
Once your body “heals” after having children, most women experience breast volume loss or a breast appearance that is elongated, misshapen, or asymmetrical. Your Temecula Mommy Makeover addresses these breast changes through breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination of both to restore full, firm, lifted breasts.
SculptYour Body Contours
The abdomen and breasts are not the only regions to experience changes after having children. Excess, localized pockets of fat can develop on any area of the body, and often appear in locations that you’ve never experienced fat before. Liposuction tones and sculpts the body so that you can restore your self-esteem and confidence.
Customizing Your Mommy Makeover
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
After pregnancy and childbirth stretch the abdominal muscles and skin, tummy tuck surgery can be performed to restore a pre-baby midsection. This procedure removes excess abdominal skin, repairs diastasis recti (loose or separated abdominal muscles), and reshapes the waistline and flank areas to create balance and harmony in your body contour. This procedure:
- Uses an incision made from hip to hip beneath the bikini line
- Tightens abdominal muscles
- Trims excess abdominal skin
- Reconstructs the belly button
Breast Augmentation (Mammaplasty)
The breasts experience some of the most significant changes during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Often, breasts lose a substantial amount of volume during this time. Breast augmentation restores lost volume while enhancing the shape of the breasts. This procedure:
- Improves firmness and breast shape
- Enhances breast volume
- Achieves results by inserting a saline or silicone implant
- Offers different options for incision location and implant placement
While breast augmentation is enough for some women to restore a pre-baby appearance to the breasts, other women need additional help. Breast lift surgery is performed with or without augmentation for women suffering from drooping or sagging breasts. This procedure is designed to:
- Restore breast symmetry, position, and shape
- Remove excess skin
- Improve nipple position and areola size
- Return youthfulness to the breasts
Liposuction and Skin Tightening
Liposuction is used to reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat on the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, and buttocks. This technique restores slender body contours while skin tightening removes excess, sagging skin to restore smooth body contours. This procedure:
- Makes small incisions near the targeted sites
- Eliminates localized pockets of fat
- Tightens skin laxity for a more youthful appearance
- Improves body shape and contour
Easing Your Concerns
RecoveryAs your Mommy Makeover is personalized to you, the recovery period is variable, and you will be provided detailed recovery instructions based on which procedures are performed. After the operation, drains may be placed that will require extra maintenance for the first few days. Instructions on how to maintain these will be given if needed. Compression garments should be worn over all incision sites to increase blood circulation, reduce swelling, and promote healing. Most women return to work and their normal activities within two to three weeks. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least six weeks, depending on your combination of procedures.
PainYour Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthesia for a painless operation. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are common afterward. If you experience discomfort, prescribed pain medication can remedy this. This discomfort should dissipate after a few weeks.
ScarsScars are likely to form at all incision sites. While Dr. Batra does his best to minimize the extent of scarring during the operation, you can do your part afterward. Patients are advised to use silicone scar sheets and minimize tension and tugging at the incision sites. Sun exposure should be avoided until the incisions have completely healed. As with all scarring, surgical scars will fade with time.
CostYour Mommy Makeover is hand tailored to you. The cost of this procedure will reflect that. Factors such as the types of procedures, implant costs, anesthesia fees, surgical fees, facility fees, and physician’s fees are included in the final cost. You will be provided a detailed price estimate during your consultation with Dr. Batra in Murrieta.
