Dr. Baccaro on the Infamous Mommy Makeover
Hi. I’m Dr. Baccaro, and today I wanted to talk to you about the Mommy Makeover. The Mommy Makeover is actually a generic term that refers to a series of procedures to improve different portions of the body that may have been affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
Very typically we talk about procedures of the breasts, and the body, and even vaginal rejuvenation. Some patients take the opportunity to start using Botox and other injectables which may be used to enhance different areas, particularly of the face.
So talking a little bit about breast procedures it’s not a cookie cutter technique not one size fits all. Some women may want a breast augmentation, while others may want a breast lift. Others may want a lift with an augmentation, and other patients may have developed large breasts and may need a breast reduction. The breast procedure is really varies from patient to patient and we work together to figure out exactly what procedure would be best for you.
By the same token, the belly procedure is going to vary from patient to patient. Some patients may need a tummy tuck, some patients may not need a full classic tummy tuck, but may need a mini tummy tuck, which is a variant of the tummy tuck, or an extended mini tummy tuck. Some patients may only need some liposuction, so again, it’s a very variable situation in which we have a very personal conversation to discuss your goals and to figure out what the best procedure is for you.
What’s not talked about enough is vaginal rejuvenation. A lot of mothers request vaginal rejuvenation for discomfort, sometimes from sitting down, riding a bicycle, or just general discomfort in clothing, and they request vaginal rejuvenation to help address these concerns.
Mothers also take this opportunity to start using Botox and fillers, and that way it improves their confidence by improving a little bit of wrinkles or fine lines they may have developed over the years.
If you’d like to start a conversation about your Mommy Makeover journey, make sure to make a consultation where we can discuss the issues that are concerning you and we can figure out together what procedures are right for you.
