Has pregnancy and/or motherhood changed your body? Are you frustrated by fat or sagging skin? The mommy makeover may be a safe, effective solution for you. This cosmetic surgery procedure is performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis on residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights and surrounding Illinois communities.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover is a term used to describe a variety of procedures targeting common problem areas for moms. The mommy makeover surgery combination is designed to improve women’s self-esteem and body image following one or multiple pregnancies.
What is the Procedure for a Mommy Makeover?
The body goes through many changes during pregnancy, the stomach stretches, and the body retains higher amounts of fat. And unfortunately, after pregnancy, stretch marks, and fat may not go away with exercise. For this reason, women turn to Dr. Kotis for a mommy makeover package. At his Chicago practice, Dr. Kotis can reshape a post-baby body to its pre-baby state. A mommy makeover package includes a few different procedures for optimum results. Liposuction, abdominoplasty and breast augmentation can all be included in a mommy makeover package. Performed during a single appointment, these combined techniques can remove excess fat, tighten loose skin or contour breast appearance.
- Liposuction – eliminates excess fat from the flanks (love handles) and stomach. Both tumescent and ultrasound-assisted liposuction can slim the body and create new contours. Any area where there is excess fat can be eliminated with liposuction.
- Abdominoplasty – for sagging skin around the stomach, an abdominoplasty can help. Dr. Kotis can create a more toned appearance by removing excess skin. Certain stretch marks can also be improved by an abdominoplasty procedure. After a pregnancy, the rectus abdominis muscles can split and create an uneven appearance; Dr. Kotis can retighten these muscles for a toned appearance.
- Breast Augmentation– breastfeeding can cause ptosis or drooping breasts. To lift and create a perkier appearance, breast augmentation can be performed. Dr. Kotis can place implants and remove tissue to create a more round or lifted appearance.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
After patients have opted for a procedure, they can expect to take time off from work and other activities. Patients will need a few weeks to heal from their combined procedures. Depending on the number of procedures chosen, and the overall results, patients can expect differing recovery time periods. Dr. Kotis serves patients in the Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, and Elgin areas. He will provide guidance through the healing process for all his patients and will help you get the most out of your mommy makeover.
Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Many women can benefit from the mommy makeover procedure. Women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth, one or multiple times, may be frustrated by the appearance of their body, specifically in the stomach, hips, groin and/or breast area. The effects of motherhood and pregnancy on the body can be long term. However, a mommy makeover can help diminish those long-term effects. Because pregnancy can change the body, it is best suited for individuals who do not plan to have any additional children in the future.
