Here at Gentera Center for Plastic Surgery, we want to help women live their best, most holistic lives. That can include not only nutrition, exercise and self care for wellness, but also cosmetic surgery, which may be especially indicated after giving birth.
Childbirth can be one of the most transformative and exciting experiences in a woman’s life. But for many women, some of the transformation of one’s body can be unexpected and unwelcome.
A Mommy Makeover at the Gentera Center for Plastic Surgery offers a way to recapture the figure you enjoyed before having children, while committing to your own wellness, confidence and holistic lifestyle.
The Mommy Makeover can restore – and even enhance – your shape. These procedures can make dramatic changes that restore your stomach to its pre-birth contours or address other parts of your body that need attention, including your breasts and vaginal area.
The Mommy Makeover surgeries are not only about looking good and increasing confidence – they will help you feel better, both inside and out.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover surgery typically involves a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation and/or a breast reduction/lift.
The Mommy Makeover procedure provides full-body contouring that helps restore comfort and self-confidence to women in many stages of life. As one of the most comprehensive procedures, it is highly effective at reversing some of the more unwelcome after-effects of childbirth.
Our Mommy Makeovers also address issues such as:
- Loose and sagging skin
- Excess fat and bulging of the abs, hips, thighs and arms
- Sagging breasts or changes in breast size
Well-Woman Wellness Checkup With a Mommy Makeover
If you wish, you may include a well-woman checkup as part of your Mommy Makeover. Our women’s wellness specialist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Astrid Marina Zorrilla, can perform your annual wellness exam. This visit includes your Pap smear, a thermal breast exam and recommended wellness blood tests.
Vaginal Rejuvenation with a Mommy Makeover
After childbirth, skin sagginess can also happen in the birth canal. Many women find that adding a vaginal rejuvenation procedure to their Mommy Makeover provides life-enhancing satisfaction. At Gentera Center for Plastic Surgery, we offer non-invasive and surgical procedures to help address this concern.
Vaginal rejuvenation options include labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, and on-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.
For some women, childbirth changes the size of the labia, or inner folds of the vagina. This can lead to discomfort and pain during intimacy or when engaging in physical activity. Sometimes, the enlarged areas can be visible under tight clothing and might cause self-consciousness and embarrassment.
Labiaplasty, a well-tolerated procedure that can be a key part of the Mommy Makeover, can help restore self-esteem and relieve emotional and physical distress. It is one of our most popular procedures, and we have many reports from women who have loved its results.
Some women may experience skin laxity or sagginess in the birth canal after childbirth. The vagina may feel loose and sex may not be as enjoyable as it was before. With a vaginoplasty, the vaginal canal can be tightened to improve this. A mommy makeover can be combined with a vaginoplasty, all in the same surgery day, providing a complete restoration of your body.
VIVEVE Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal canal skin laxity and urinary leakage can be treated with a non-invasive procedure, the VIVEVE System.
This one-time treatment gently tightens the vagina, leading to greater pleasure for you and your partner. It is especially helpful for those concerned about the effects of aging, or who have had multiple pregnancies.
VIVEVE System for Stress Urinary Incontinence
Some women may experience urinary leakage when they cough, sneeze or with certain movements. This is known as stress urinary incontinence, and can worsen with pregnancy or after childbirth. The VIVEVE System helps tighten the tissues underneath the urethra to prevent leakage of urine.
Benefits of Combining a Mommy Makeover with Vaginal Rejuvenation
Many women find that combining the Mommy Makeover with a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, whether non-invasive or surgical, provides a highly satisfying outcome.
There are a number of benefits when these two procedures are combined. Because they can be done in one session, multiple surgery dates are not needed. What’s more, one recovery time means a faster return to daily life.
Combining a Mommy Makeover With Other Procedures
Your health, function, how you feel and how you look are all treated together at Gentera Center for Plastic Surgery. After consultation with our physicians, women may decide that other complimentary surgeries can be part of the Mommy Makeover. That might include butt augmentation, arm lift and liposuction, as well as facial procedures.
