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. Every mommy makeover is custom tailored to fit each patient’s unique desires and needs.

Causes Of Drooping Breasts

By | Breast Lift, Breast, Mommy Makeover | No Comments
Droopy, saggy breasts often serve as a source of insecurity and annoyance. Not only can they make buying bras and clothing difficult, sometimes overly large, saggy breasts can cause chronic pain. There are many causes of sagging breasts and discovering the cause can allow your plastic surgeon to devise the best plan for your Bellevue breast surgery.    First off, saggy breasts can run in families. Breasts come in all shapes and sizes and genetics plays a role. Some women may be predisposed to developing droopy breasts later in life, or others may have fuller breasts that naturally droop. In these cases, either a breast lift or reduction may address these concerns.    Secondly, pregnancy and breastfeeding can result in a loss of breast tissue as well as the stretching of the skin on and around the breast. Another common cause of drooping breasts, this stretched, excess skin sometimes combined with less breast tissue can cause breast ptosis. Normally, a breast lift can resolve these issues and for women who have given birth can be part of a mommy makeover surgery that targets the breasts and abdomen.   Finally, general aging and lifestyle can cause breast sag overtime. Smoking can increase the chances and amounts of breast ptosis. Other times, aging simply causes the breasts to sag as skin loses laxity. Depending on the specifics of your breasts, a breast lift, reduction, or breast augmentation may benefit you.   Determining the cause of drooping breasts at your consultation, will help Dr. Jonov plan the perfect breast lift for your needs.

When seeking out plastic surgery, you may hear the term “mommy makeover” floating around. Unlike other procedures like breast augmentation or facelift, the name does not describe the procedure or the exact results you can expect. This is because it is a highly customizable procedure that you and Dr. Jonov will cater specifically to your body and needs.

The procedure carries the moniker “mommy makeover” because women’s bodies change drastically after childbirth, however, you do not have to be a mother or have had children to be a candidate for the surgery. Generally, it simply refers to a grouping of procedures that rejuvenates the body. Most often, a mommy makeover includes a breast and body procedure. Some patients choose to add on a facial plastic surgery, Brazilian butt lift, or other cosmetic surgery.

Every mommy makeover surgery that Dr. Jonov performs is different because everybody has different anatomy and every patient has unique goals. During your consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, you can discuss what you want to achieve with your mommy makeover and determine if you are a good candidate. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
