How Much Weight Do You Lose With A Mommy Makeover?

Many patients who undergo a mommy makeover have experienced changes in or struggled with their weight. They often seek out this procedure to correct the damage or changes in their body due to weight fluctuations. Therefore, some patients sometimes still carry some weight when they come in for surgery. Does this mean you cannot have surgery? Will it eliminate all of this weight? How much weight do you lose with a mommy makeover? Let’s answer these questions.

Weight & Mommy Makeover

People who have had children do tend to carry extra weight due to this for various reasons. Hormones, age, genetics, having a C-section, and many other factors all contribute to this extra weight. Due to this, post-baby weight can be especially difficult, if not impossible to lose.  At your mommy makeover consultation, Dr. Jonov will evaluate if you are healthy enough to undergo a mommy makeover surgery. Typically, as long as you are not obese and fairly healthy, you may be a good candidate. That said, it is recommended that patients be between five and twenty-five pounds of their goal weight before surgery. Why? A mommy makeover is not a weight loss surgery. While it may include procedures that remove fat such as liposuction and a tummy tuck, these procedures do not remove large amounts of fat. Most of the time during any plastic surgery, patients do not lose more than ten pounds during surgery. Mommy makeover surgery can be a motivator to lose weight–both before and after the procedure. Many patients do not need to lose any or a significant amount of weight before surgery. However, if it is necessary, Dr. Jonov will discuss this with you during your consultation.

Mommy Makeover Surgery

The exact outcome of a mommy makeover depends on the procedures involved. A mommy makeover is an extremely customizable procedure. Traditionally, the surgery is a combination of breast surgery (like breast augmentation) and a tummy procedure (like a tummy tuck). Though, a mommy makeover is not limited to two procedures or to breast and stomach surgeries.  A mommy makeover can include nearly any combination of procedures. However, it usually contains at least one breast and/or tummy surgery. Some of the procedures that can be a part of a mommy makeover are: Dr. Jonov will discuss your options for mommy makeover and what procedures will help you reach your cosmetic goals.

During the procedure, Dr. Jonov liposuctions fat from one or more areas of the body and transfer it into the buttocks. At a consultation, many patients ask, “What are side effects of a Brazilian butt lift?”  The side effects of a BBL are similar to that of other fat transfer surgeries. Swelling at the liposuction site and the transfer site is normal. Some discomfort and pain are expected after surgery. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medications to manage this and an antibiotic to prevent infection.  Bruising is another side effect some patients see.

Non-Invasive BBL: The Best Bellevue BBL

By | Brazilian Butt Lift | No Comments
A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure that transfers fat from one area of the body and into the buttocks. Dr. Jonov performs liposuction on one or multiple areas to sculpt new contours and enhance the size and shape of the booty. Most cosmetic surgery patients desire the least invasive surgery possible. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jonov performs non-invasive BBL surgeries and provides non-surgical options.    For surgical options, Dr. Jonov uses a minimal incision for the liposuction cannula and injects the fat with precision. In most cases, a BBL is a fairly non-invasive surgery overall. Liposuction encompasses the most invasive aspect of the surgery in most cases.   Non-surgical BBLs have become more popular and usually do not require general anesthesia like a surgical Brazilian butt lift. Non-surgical Brazilian butt lift procedures typically use Sculptra, natural growth factors, or a combination for non-surgical butt augmentation. These are some of the least invasive BBL methods.  Dr. Craig Jonov of The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery performs many Brazilian butt lift procedures every month and is among one of the best Bellevue cosmetic surgeons.

Types Of Brazilian Butt Lift: Surgical & Non-Surgical Options

By | Brazilian Butt Lift, Sculptra, Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift | No Comments
Butt augmentation with surgical and non-surgical methods are one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures in the country. Dr. Craig Jonov performs many of these procedures every year and offers many different options for Bellevue butt enhancement.

Surgical

The surgical Brazilian butt lift procedure liposuctions fat from a donor area of the body and transfers it to the backside. This can dramatically change your body’s contours because it can remove excess fat while refining the shape of the booty. The amount of fat transferred depends on the amount of viable fat and your personal goals for your Bellevue Brazilian butt lift.

Non-Surgical

There are various types of non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. A common non-surgical method to augment the butt is to use the dermal filler Sculptra. This long lasting filler stimulates collagen and is easy to combine with other injectable materials.   Non-surgical Brazilian butt lifts provide a butt enhancement option for people who do not want surgery, or may not have enough fat to liposuction. Dr. Jonov can discuss which non-surgical options are best for you. All of the options are natural or completely biodegradable, while stimulating collagen production in the body to promote natural augmentation.

The Wide Variety Of Fat Transfer Procedures

By | Liposuction, Fat Transfer, Brazilian Butt Lift | No Comments

Fat transfer procedures have revolutionized the cosmetic surgery industry in recent years. While cosmetic surgeons have used fat transfer for over a hundred years to correct major scars and disfigurements, usually from wartime injuries, fat grafting has continued to see advancements as fat harvesting saw improvements. Today, fat grafting, liposuction, and subsequent transfer have become among the most popular body contouring procedures. 

Firstly, like the original uses of the procedure, facial fat transfer can fill in facial hollows, correct acne scarring, and address other facial scarring. Normally, the fat is injected through a small cannula. This can rejuvenate the face for a younger appearance and for reconstructive purposes.

As liposuction saw advancements, fat transfer procedures did also. Fat transfer to the breasts and Brazilian butt lifts are among two of the most popular procedures. During these procedures, Dr. Jonov  harvests fat from one site of the body, often the abdomen or thighs. Then, he transfers it via injection into the butt or breasts. 

Fat can also be used as a filler, adding volume to targeted areas. Sometimes fat harvesting can happen on a smaller scale to fill in the tear troughs, augment the lips, or as cheek filler. There are many options for your fat transfer in Bellevue.
