What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancies bring with them many changes to your body. Breast volume is decreased, and abdominal skin becomes stretched. Sometimes it is difficult to lose all of the body fat that you gain while pregnant. Dr. Gregory Diehl, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Port Jefferson, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, can give you your pre-baby body back, in fact even better, with a Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover surgery mainly consists of Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation and Liposuction. Tummy Tuck tightens the loose skin on the tummy, Breast Augmentation rejuvenates the breasts, and Liposuction eliminates the unwanted fatty deposits from weight gain due to pregnancy. After Mommy Makeover surgeries, patients can enjoy wearing the types of clothes they want and yes, even bikinis!
At your consultation Dr. Gregory Diehl will discuss all aspects of a Mommy Makeover Surgery with you and also determine whether you are a good candidate for the Mommy Makeover Surgery.
TUMMY TUCK (ABDOMINOPLASTY):
Pregnancy pushes out on your abdomen and stretches the skin and muscle wall. This is quite variable, with different degrees of looseness. Two types of Tummy Tucks may be chosen, depending on the skin quality in relation to the belly button. If the skin is loose mainly below the belly button, then a mini Tummy Tuck tightens this skin and the lower abdominal wall, allowing you to retain the natural shape of the belly button and using a smaller incision. If the skin above the belly button is loose and the belly button itself has lost its youthful appearance, then a full Tummy Tuck is planned, with extra skin tightening, and the belly button is given a more youthful shape. The scar is designed to lie low, within your panty or bikini bottom. All scars will be treated with various methods to keep them as smooth and thin as possible. At your consultation Dr. Diehl will discuss which tummy tuck would be ideal for you. With a full or mini-Tummy Tuck you will enjoy your smooth, flat tummy again and look great in clothes!
BREAST AUGMENTATION/ BREAST LIFT/ LOLLIPOP LIFT:
As you know, your breasts enlarge during pregnancy, and then shrink afterward, often with an overall loss of volume, especially in the upper area. That makes it difficult to fill out certain clothing, especially dresses and bathing suits. Breast implants, both saline and silicone, can replace that volume. If the breasts are stretched and lower than they used to be then a Breast Lift might be necessary. This procedure is often referred to as a “Lollipop Lift“. Breast Enlargement alone will not necessarily be able to restore the breasts to its original shape. At your consultation Dr. Diehl will discuss with you what is ideal for you. With Breast Augmentation and/ or Breast Lift you can, again, have full youthful looking breasts.
Baby fat is cute on the baby, but it’s not as cute when it’s on mommy too. If you can’t seem to get rid of the weight gained during pregnancy, Dr. Diehl can help you trim down. Your hips, tummy and legs can benefit from Mommy Makeover Liposuction. Liposuction has been refined to a point where the results are natural (and permanent)! Once the fat is removed from an area with Liposuction it’s gone forever.
