A mommy makeover with a tummy tuck and breast lift with implant augmentation is a mommy makeover surgery specifically for patients that desire a drastic body transformation. An unfortunate side-effect of the pregnancy process combined with increasing age is the accumulation of stomach fat and skin looseness.
Throughout this process, you may also notice breast sagging once you are finished breastfeeding. In order to create a beautiful, youthful appearance, both the excess fat and skin looseness must be treated in the same procedure.
High Definition Mommy Makeover: Abdomen
The difference between a traditional mommy makeover and a high definition mommy makeover is the ability of a high definition body contouring master to bring every treated area to a 9 or 10 on the HDL Body Scale.
Arian Mowlavi MD FACS, developed the HDL protocol to grade each body part on the basis of skin and fat during an initial consultation. If you fall between a 2-4 on the abdominal area, you need a full abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, to address all the extra skin.
This will bring your stomach to a 7-8 on the body scale. In early 2020, Dr. Mowlavi developed a high definition tummy tuck protocol that allows him to be the first surgeon to combine a full tummy tuck with VASER liposuction to bring your abdomen all the way to a 9 or 10 in one procedure. However, most post-pregnancy patients have stomach diastasis, meaning their stomach muscles are loose.
If that is the case, muscle plication must also be included in your tummy tuck surgery which prevents the possibility for simultaneous VASER liposuction. In that case, you would need to wait 3-6 months after the initial surgery to get abdominal etching with HD liposuction. This 36-year-old patient was happy with her stomach contour after her full tummy tuck and opted to only have the one surgery.
Mommy Makeover: BLI
Breast surgery is another major key in mommy makeover procedures. If your breasts are sagging post-pregnancy and you desire a rounder, fuller appearance, a breast lift with implant augmentation is performed to completely transform your breast appearance. However, a mommy makeover with breast lift implant augmentation should not be considered until 6 months after you finished breastfeeding.
This allows the glands to dry up and shows your true breast appearance. If you do a breast consultation while breastfeeding, the surgeon will not be able to fully grasp what your breasts will look like after surgery because they are working with an unstable canvas.
