Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover is a term that can mean a lot of different things to different people.  Pregnancy creates many changes to a woman’s body; some women can completely recover with almost no signs of a previous pregnancy; some women are left with issues that can not be corrected by diet and exercise.   Body issues that can be addressed with Mommy Makeover procedures include deflation or loss of volume of the breasts, breast sagging, areola stretching, sagging of the abdomen, and stretch marks of the abdomen.   Procedures aimed at correcting these problems include breast augmentation, breast lift (mastopexy), combination breast augmentation and lift, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and liposuction.   Pregancy can sometimes cause small hernias around the belly button which can often be corrected during a tummy tuck procedure.  A Mommy Makeover can include one or a combination of any of these procedures.

Breast implants can be filled with either silicone gel or saline, and there are a variety of breast implant profiles, shapes, and silicone gel fillers available to choose from.  Breast Implants manufactures include Allergan, Mentor, and Sientra, and each makes a variety of implants to choose from.  Allergan round breast implants include Natrelle Inspira, Natrelle Inspira Soft Touch, and Natrelle Inspira Cohesive. There are anatomic, or “shaped” options to choose from as well.   Mentor silicone gel implants include Memorygel and Memoryshape.   Saline breast implants are an option as well.   Breast implant shells can be smooth or textured.   Breast Lift can be performed with or without placement of a breast implant, and when combined with an implant can oftentimes be done as a single procedure.  Some individual circumstances can require that a breast augmentation and lift be separated into two procedures.  All of the available choices can be overwhelming.  The best way to sort out which of these procedures and breast implants may be most appropriate for any particular woman would be through a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon highly experienced in Mommy Makeover procedures.

Mommy Makeover Testimonial September 2017

Dr. Weinrach  & Jelena: There are no words to convey my gratitude for all you have done for me!  I love being a mom and wouldn’t give that up for anything in the world, but the sacrifice and toll motherhood took on my body left me feeling so uncomfortable.  When I looked at myself in the mirror I was so frustrated at the image reflected back at me and had contemplated surgery so often.  Fear, finances etc. kept me from taking that step.  When I finally decided and met the two of you in the office I KNEW you would be able to help me and that I was absolutely making the right choice.  I can not believe the results and I feel like myself again.  Thank you for giving me back my pre-mom body 🙂 and the confidence to not only stand in front of the mirror and love the image reflected back at me, but to sit on the beach in a crowd of people wearing a bikini for the first time in EVER and not feel one bit self conscious!  From consultation to surgery to post-op follow-ups you both have been WONDERFUL and my only regret is waiting so long to FINALLY take the steps to get my body back! Kindest Regards,
