What is a mommy makeover? A mommy makeover is a group of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed to improve a woman’s appearance. It is typically done after a woman has finished having children. A mommy makeover can involve any of the following procedures: • Liposuction • Abdominoplasty • Breast surgery • Thigh lift The first three procedures are the most commonly performed in a mommy makeover. Breast surgery usually involves breast augmentation or breast reduction, and they may or may not be paired with a breast lift. A mommy makeover can be performed all at once, or it can be done in stages as several different operations. Liposuction is a common surgical procedure used to remove fat. One common type is tumescent liposuction in which Dr. Katzen injects a solution containing an anesthetic into the treatment area.
The solution makes the fat cells swell and become firm, so they are easier to remove. In ultrasound-assisted liposuction, Dr. Katzen uses ultrasound or VASER to liquefy the fat before removing the fat with a suction. Both types of liposuction can be used in abdominoplasties or breast reduction surgeries. A breast lift is a procedure done to give sagging breasts a perkier appearance. Dr. Katzen tightens the breast tissue and removes any excess breast skin. The size of the breasts are minimally altered unless Dr. Katzen is performing a breast reduction or breast augmentation. In a breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Katzen will insert implants either in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. With Dr. Katzen’s guidance, you will be able to choose from a large variety of implants. To see if you would benefit from a mommy makeover, contact the office of Dr. Katzen today.
