Mommy Makeover Procedure Overview

A Mommy Makeover can provide you with a complete rejuvenation of a number of body areas affected by pregnancy. Procedures involved can include:

Breast Augmentation with Implants

For an even greater rejuvenation of the breasts, breast augmentation with implants adds volume and fullness to the bustline by making them larger and more proportionate to your body frame. Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and types, giving you a more contoured bust and a more sensual appearance. Dr. Pritchard will go over all aspects of breast enlargement with you and help decide what type of implants and what size will best meet your specific needs.

Breast Lift

After delivering children, the breasts often begin to sag, losing their "perkiness" and taking on a more aged appearance. Breast lift surgery lifts the breasts and nipples to a higher position. Excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened for a more youthful, fit appearance.

Tummy Tuck 

Over the course of a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are under pressure from the uterus, getting pulled apart and often permanently separated. Dr.Pritchard can tighten these muscles and pull the surrounding abdominal skin taut, getting rid of excess tissue and giving the abdomen a flatter, more toned appearance.

Liposuction 

Many areas of the body can store fat deposits that are extremely hard to get rid of, even with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a commonly-performed procedure designed to target these specific areas of fat and eliminate them. Liposuction can be performed in body areas including the thighs, hips, love handles, arms, abdomen, chest, and buttocks.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Recovery from a Mommy Makeover will depend on the types of procedures you will undergo. Patients should expect some degree of bruising and swelling in the treated areas, and should plan to rest at home for a period of time after surgery. At your initial consultation visit, Dr. Pritchard will talk with you about the areas of the body which you would like to target for rejuvenation, and the procedures which will be best for your needs. He will also give you all the details of recovery and what you can expect in the weeks following surgery.
