More about Mommy Makeovers
When a Mommy Makeover Is Right
One of the most common cosmetic concerns for women after having kids is the appearance of their breasts. There’s no doubt that pregnancy and childbirth bring plenty of changes to your body. In addition to the breasts, a mommy makeover can also enhance the appearance of the abdomen, hips, thighs and even the face. Each mommy makeover Dr. Castellano performs is custom tailored to the individual person’s needs. A mommy makeover may include procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, tummy tuck and facial treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or injectable fillers.
What to Expect
No two mommy makeovers will be exactly alike. Here are the procedures that are commonly included as part of a mommy makeover for Tampa moms:
Breast augmentation increases the fullness of the natural breast. Whether you are interested in a little boost or more dramatic results, Dr. Castellano has the skills and expertise to give you the figure you’ve always wanted.
A breast lift restores breasts to a more youthful placement and restores perkiness. Dr. Castellano is able to re-sculpt the breast tissue and adjust nipple placement in order to bring the breasts more front and center.
A tummy tuck will tighten stretched out abdominal muscles, and also removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. This helps moms regain their young, trim waistline. An incision will be made across the lower abdomen, through which Dr. Castellano is able to restore tautness to the abdominal muscles. Once the framework is back in place to offer proper support, any excess skin and fat are removed and the incision is closed.
For stubborn fat deposits elsewhere on the body, liposuction can further sculpt problem areas and create a more slender silhouette. Lipo is not a substitute for weight loss, although it can be used to remove excess fat in areas which have remained unaffected by diet or exercise.
After childbirth, many women experience unwanted changes in their vaginal area. Excess tissue can sometimes cause discomfort and loss of self-confidence. Vaginal rejuvenation or labiaplasty can improve the external appearance of the genitalia by removing the excess tissues and restoring appearance.
Not every mom will want or need all of these treatments, although it’s very common to schedule multiple procedures during a mommy makeover.
Recovery and Results
Recovery time will vary depending on the procedures which Dr. Castellano performs, according to your desired results. All surgical procedures will provide a fresh new look for years to come.
With Other Procedures
In addition to the surgical options listed above, there are several non-surgical enhancements which complement the mommy makeover. For example, laser resurfacing improves skin texture and can remove sun damage which contributes to premature aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to slow down the advancement of certain facial wrinkles. Other fillers are able to minimize deeper lines, or plump up lips for an extra boost.
