A “mommy makeover” is a popular term that describes a series of plastic surgery procedures that are designed for women who have experienced childbirth. The procedures are always individualized for each patient, but they often include a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures.
In Houston, Dr. Young Cho of Integrated Plastic Surgery provides these surgeries for women are bothered by the unwanted body changes that have occurred during their childbearing years.
About the Mommy Makeover in Houston
If you’re considering plastic surgery for a mommy makeover in Houston, you should first meet the following criteria for best results as well as safety:
- Stable body weight
- Realistic expectations
- Not planning future pregnancy
- Motivated to improve appearance
A consultation is the best way to determine suitability for plastic surgery. During your personalized consultation with Dr. Cho in Houston, you can learn detailed information about the mommy makeover and determine if this is the right option for you.
Cosmetic breast surgery is a common part of the mommy makeover. With a breast lift or breast augmentation, Dr. Cho can restore fullness to the breasts or elevate them for a more youthful position. Breast augmentation requires placement of a saline or silicone breast implant, while the breast lift requires surgical tissue tightening to correct breast sagging.
Abdominoplasty, or the tummy tuck, is another procedure that can benefit women who have undergone childbirth. The tummy tuck can help to create a flatter abdomen and repair the stretched muscles on the abdominal wall. There are variations in technique that Dr. Cho may recommend, including a mini-tummy tuck that involves a shorter incision.
Liposuction makes it possible for a plastic surgeon to remove persistent areas of localized body fat. Areas such as the arms, thighs, tummy, back and neck are treated. For safety, a limited amount of fat can be removed with liposuction. This procedure is not a weight loss procedure, but a proven method of selective body fat removal.
