Mommy Makeovers Resource for Women looking for the best Mommy Makeovers in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Arizona Introduction: When it comes to makeovers, the concept of beauty comes to our minds, particularly women beauty. In women, makeover is achieved by Plastic surgery. This may be hard to believe but these type of surgeries did not start in the 21st century. In fact, by 800 BC ,reconstructive surgery techniques were already being carried out in India. The techniques made their way into Europe via intermediaries, to Italy and bologna. British medical practitioners traveled to India to see these techniques being performed. Joseph Constantine Carpue spent 20 years in India studying local plastic surgery methods and was able to perform his first major procedure by 1815. The traditional items used in India were later modified in the western world. The father of modern cosmetic surgery was considered to have been Harold Gillies. He worked in London caring for soldiers who had disfiguring facial injuries from the First World War. Through the persuasion of the army’s chief surgeon, a facial injuries ward was established at the Cambridge military hospital which later upgraded to a new facial repairs hospital. Gillies developed a private practice and traveled extensively to promote his techniques. Cosmetic surgery This is an optional procedure performed on normal body parts only to improve appearance and erase the image of aging. In the United States, almost 16 million cosmetic procedures were performed in 2014. 92% of these procedures were done to women. According to the statistics of the American society of aesthetic plastic surgery, there are close to 34 different cosmetic procedures with 19 of these procedures being surgical. Cosmetic surgery is one of the most booming businesses in the world. There are five common cosmetic surgery procedures. They include:

  1. breast augmentation- also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts,
  2. liposuction- also known as lipoplasty, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits,
  3. breast reduction- also known as reduction mammoplasty, is an operation to reduce the weight and volume of the breasts,
  4. eyelid surgery- a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids and
  5. Abdominoplasty-reshaping and firming of the abdomen.

The primary reason to undergo plastic and cosmetic surgery is to improve the appearance of the body. There are many reasons that lead to women deciding to improve their appearance. One of the reasons is mommy makeover. What is mommy make over? A “Mommy Makeover” is a set of procedures designed to restore and empower a woman after her body has undergone the strain of pregnancy. Dr. Zavala a cosmetic practitioner with Ciao Bella Medical Spa says that, Pregnancy, delivery and breastfeeding can create different problems for each woman, and so the mommy makeover will be unique for each patient; it will include things like a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck. Okay truth be told child bearing is the most strenuous thing the body of a woman has to go through. The body gains a lot of weight, the skin expands to cover the extra body growth which disappears after child bearing leaving a sagging skin on some. And of course breast feeding causes the breast to frequently change in size resulting in flat or shapeless breasts. The after effect of child birth leaves the woman in state of “hate for her body”. This results for an option of mommy makeup. Whatever your issues, a Mommy Makeover can leave you feeling restored, refreshed and looking your best.

  • Liposuction can get rid of those extra pockets of fat that were easy to add and impossible to make go away.
  • A tummy tuck will remove all the extra skin on the front of the abdomen, and leave a smooth, lean exterior to match the reduced body mass.
  • And a breast lift will improve the woman’s breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape.

Mommy makeover is a term used to describe women who have given birth and want to undergo surgery to eliminate stretch marks after pregnancy and uplifting their breast which tend to sag after breastfeeding and weight loss. A growing number of women of late have chosen to undergo mommy makeover which involves multiple plastic surgery procedures that restore and improves their post-pregnancy bodies. The Mommy Makeover procedure is tailored to meet a woman’s distinctive needs and goals but often take in some combination of breast lift, breast increase, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Some of the procedures involved in mommy makeover are discussed below: Breast lift A breast lift is also referred as “mastopexy”. It is a surgical process to modify the change of form or figure of the breasts. When the process is being carried out surplus skin is removed and breast tissue is reformed to reinstate firmness and lift up the breasts. A woman may decide to have a breast lift if their breasts sag or have their nipples point downward. A breast lift tends to enhance a woman’s’ self-image and self-confidence. It should be noted that a breast lift does not significantly alter the size of their breasts but it can be done in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction. There are many grounds for breast changes these include:

  • Pregnancy where the tendon that supports a woman’s’ breasts stretches as the breasts get fuller and heavier. This effect adds to drooping of breasts after pregnancy it does not matter whether you breast feed the baby or you do not.
  • Weight variation also causes the breast skin to stretch and lose elasticity.
  • Gravity causes tendons in the breasts to stretch and sag.

Breast augmentation Breast augmentation referred as ‘augmentation mammoplasty’ and is a surgical process to boost breast dimension. Throughout the process of breast augmentation, breast implants are positioned underneath the breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast augmentation for some women is part of breast restoration after surgery for breast cancer or other circumstances affecting the breast. Breast reduction Breast reduction operation referred to as ‘reduction mammaplasty,’ and is a procedure used to get rid of excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts. If a woman has large breasts she might decide to have breast reduction surgery to relieve uneasiness or to attain a breast size impartial to their body. Women who are considering breast reduction surgery should understand what breast reduction surgery involve as well as probable hazards and problems not excluding setting realistic prospects. Breast Revision In breast revision, majority of the women who go through breast augmentation in some cases need to go through secondary surgery to correct complication and produce eye-catching outcome. Women should be informed that breasts continue to grow old after augmentation. Also weight gain and weight loss transform the appearance of the breasts. So in case they become displeased with the appearance of their breasts they can go for a revision operation to right these matters. Tummy Tuck For most women especially mothers who understand that having a baby alter their body in various manners that even going on a diet or even doing exercises cannot expunge the way they appear. In women whose abdomen will not completely withdraw due to the fact that the skin and muscle have been stretched from pregnancy they can undergo a tummy tuck. It is also known as ‘abdominoplasty’ a cosmetic surgical process that perk up the form of the abdomen. During the process excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen. The connective tissues in the abdomen are constricted with sutures. The skin that is left over is then relocated to generate a further toned appearance. Women can decide to have a tummy tuck if their skin has accumulated around the area of their bellybutton and a weak lower abdominal wall. A flaccid tummy is caused by the buildup of fat, poor flexibility of the skin, excess skin and the elongation of abdominal fascia as well as abdominal muscles that expand from the ribs to the pubic bone. The inner girdle holds the internal organs in place and is accountable for the tone and appearance of the abdomen. A tummy tuck is also used to remove stretch marks however it will not correct stretch marks outside the stomach area.
