When most people hear the term “mommy makeover,” what comes to mind is the standard trio: a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and liposuction. After all, affects to the abdomen and breasts are the most common complaints of women post-pregnancy.
And while this trio of procedures often meets the needs of most women seeking a mommy makeover, there are additional options to consider to achieve empowering results with little to no downtime added to your recovery.
In fact, these procedures, on their own or together, can create a mommy makeover effect you feel inside and out.
As women age, our bodies face a litany of changes, including the physical impact associated with vaginal childbirth and changes in hormones often cause changes in elasticity, lubrication, and sensation. If you’re struggling with these changes and their effects on your daily life and intimate relationships, be sure to ask about Image Surgical Arts’ confidence treatment using Viveve technology. It’s a non-invasive procedure that uses a gentle and localized radio frequency specifically for the vagina. It promotes the type of collagen growth that results in increased tone to reduce pain during sex. It also improves tone and sensation which helps sexual and urinary function.
Liposuction to the mons area of the pelvic region is a relatively small procedure with maximum results. Experienced surgeons often recommend this procedure to prevent an over-accumulation of fat just below the tummy tuck incision scar. Many people seek liposuction of the mons area because they are bothered by unattractive fat bulges in that area. When this extra fat is removed, you will see aesthetic improvements both in and out of clothing, undergarments, and swimsuits.
Many women following pregnancy, and especially vaginal child-birth, will be unhappy with their labia minora (AKA “inner lips”). They will often feel that they hang lower than they did prior to having children. Oftentimes, the increase in size of the inner lips can make sexual intercourse difficult or painful. Some women just do not like the appearance of protuberant inner lips. This is from having full outer lips and reduced inner lips. Each woman has a different idea of what she desires in the appearance of her vagina. We are here to listen and help you choose the best options to obtain your ideal aesthetic look.
Fat transfer, also known as fat injection or fat grafting, is a procedure utilizing one’s own body fat tissue to increase the volume of fat in another area of the body. Excess fat in one area--commonly the abdomen or thighs, is removed by way of liposuction and placed into a centrifuge environment so that blood and other unwanted ingredients are removed. The prepared fat is then transferred to the patient’s desired area, most commonly the breasts, face, or buttocks. But two lesser known areas are the hands and even labia majora! Just a little extra fat to those areas takes years off their appearance.
