At our practice in Manchester Mommy Makeovers are offered by Dr. Abel Mounir to help you restore or enhance your youthfully feminine contours. A Mommy Makeover is a personalized surgical treatment designed to eliminate excess tissue and sculpt beautifully smooth curves.
Dr. Mounir is a board-certified Manchester plastic surgeon delivering beautifully personalized results. Mommy Makeover surgery often involves such procedures as abdominoplasty and breast augmentation, though many patients choose to incorporate a wide variety of procedures into their surgery, reducing overall recovery time and costs.
Mommy makeover surgery is a term used to reflect the unique surgical treatment that combines different plastic surgery procedures that Dr. Mounir performs to address the changes that often occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
A mommy makeover means different things to different people, and the surgery is a unique and comprehensive cosmetic procedure designed according to each patient’s aesthetic concerns. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause significant changes in the abdomen and breasts. This includes excess skin, especially in the lower part of the abdomen, and stubborn excess fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.
With regard to breast changes, there is usually a loss of fullness from the upper pole of the breasts (bottoming out) and sagging of the whole breasts. Manchester plastic surgeon Dr. Mounir has extensive experience with mommy makeovers and has prepared this web page as a resource, so you can make an informed decision about this major surgical procedure. We also encourage you to contact us and book your face-to-face consultation to explore your candidacy.
After pregnancy, many women have trouble returning to their pre-baby bodies. As described above, weight gain, stretch marks, and loss of fullness of the breasts are natural body changes following pregnancy. Mommy makeovers most commonly include a tummy tuck with liposuction and breast enhancement. However, Dr. Mounir can also perform these procedures in stages through multiple surgeries, as well as other procedures, such as breast reduction and abdominal liposuction. During your initial consultation for a mommy makeover Manchester plastic surgeon, Dr. Mounir will help you plan your surgery to suit your needs and meet your expectations. A mommy makeover usually combines at least two of the following treatments:
A combined mommy makeover treatment can improve your natural curves and restore the fullness of your breasts. This very efficient procedure reduces stubborn fat deposits in your waist and hip areas. At the Manchester Cosmetic Centre, we use the most modern surgical techniques to leave you looking rejuvenated.
If you are presenting at least two of the following body changes, then you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover:
You Are Not A Good Candidate If:
During a mommy makeover, liposuction can reduce stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. The best candidates for liposuction are usually young patients with good skin quality and elasticity that have already achieved their target body weight. Overweight women with unstable body weight may achieve better results through an alternative treatment.
Excess fat and tissue removal are staples of mommy makeover surgery. A tummy tuck is the best procedure for reducing excess fat and skin and correcting diastasis recti to create a smoother and flatter. A reduction in post-pregnancy stretch marks and a flat and reshaped abdomen are generally what patients are wanting to achieve with abdominoplasty.
The rate of infection and bleeding is overwhelmingly low when performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, such Dr. Abel Mounir. However, there are still a few possible, although rare, complications of one or more of these procedures that are beyond the surgeon’s control, such as:
Many mommy makeover procedures include breast augmentation and a breast lift, depending on the condition of the patient’s breasts and their aesthetic goals. While breast enlargement involves silicone implants to increase volume, a breast lift (or mastopexy) removes excess skin and sculpts the breasts for a firmer, lifted appearance. Some women may also choose to include a breast reduction in their mommy makeover.
The recovery from your mommy makeover will depend on the type of procedures involved. For our Manchester mommy makeover patients that received breast enhancement combined only with liposuction, you can expect to take two weeks off from work. However, for more complex procedures like a breast lift and enhancement combined with abdominoplasty, the recovery time will be longer. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mounir will discuss the overall length and the various stages of your recovery. To understand each combined procedure that is involved in your mommy makeover, please visit the individual guide pages for each procedure. One of the most important advantages of a mommy makeover is the ability to minimize recovery time with combined procedures.
