Mommy Makeovers 101
Nobody ever said having kids was easy, and that is especially true for your body. Mommy makeovers can help with that, however. These procedures combine a few plastic surgeries into one package that is specifically tailored to moms like you in the Dallas area.
What Is A Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers help out with the areas most often affected by pregnancy, including the breasts, stomach, and waist. Every mom’s body is different, so each procedure ends up being slightly different. Many women find that pregnancy leaves their breasts looking deflated and their midsection looking droopy, even after losing the baby weight.
For the breasts, augmentation, lift, or both may be appropriate. This depends on your own desires and what you and Dr. Vennemeyer determine during your consultation at his plastic surgery center in Southlake, TX. You’ll discuss your goals, what you want your breasts to look and feel like, and what combination of procedures would be right for you.
Breast implant options include saline or silicone implants in various sizes and shapes. The exact kind of implant right for you will be determined by you and Dr. Vennemeyer. You will discuss where it would be best to place the implants, what shape you want them to be, what size would be appropriate for you and your body, and more.
A breast lift means making your breasts perkier and more youthful looking. If you do not really want larger breasts, but would like them to be perkier and sit higher on your chest, you can just have your breasts lifted without getting implants. You can also combine a lift with an augmentation if you want breasts that are lifted and larger.
Is It Right For Me?
If you find that despite hitting the gym regularly, eating healthy, and losing weight you are still left with a midsection that is just not flat, you may have diastasis. This condition is when the stomach muscles pull apart during pregnancy. In a tummy tuck as part of a mommy makeover, Dr. Vennemeyer will stitch these muscles back together, giving you a flatter belly.
A Dallas mommy makeover, like mommy makeovers all over the country, may also use liposuction to remove excess fat, but Dr. Vennemeyer uses 360 Lipo to treat fat on the hips and midsection as well, which can lead to even better results. Because pregnancy may also leave you with loose skin around your midsection afterward, a mommy makeover may also involve removing and tightening this loose skin.
Like any form of surgery, including plastic surgery, mommy makeovers have recovery times and side effects that may result. If you have questions about mommy makeovers in Dallas, feel free to contact us and Dr. Vennemeyer would be happy to go over it all with you.
I had a great experience with Dr. Vennemeyer! He, his wife Andrea, and his team are absolutely professional and dedicated. I couldn’t be happier with my results! I was in the best hands throughout the process, from the initial consultation to the recovery and follow ups. I was given detailed information every time, and provided clear and straight forward answers to my many questions. I fully trust his professionalism and skills.
I highly recommend Dr. Vennemeyer to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am thrilled with my tummy tuck and liposuction results! My abdomen is tight and flat and the scar is very low and easily hidden by underwear. My belly button looks very natural and the scar is minimal. My hips curve in naturally on the sides and I don’t have any lumps from the liposuction. Dr. Vennemeyer is a skilled an caring doctor with an excellent bed side manner.
Dr. Vennemeyer was so kind and easy to talk to. He listened to my concerns and what I wanted out of the procedure and helped me figure out the best plan for my body type! The office staff was super nice as well. They definitely made me feel comfortable and explained everything in great detail. I highly recommend them to anyone in search of a plastic surgeon.
There is not enough incredible words to say how amazing Dr. Vennemeyer and his team is. From the first phone call, appointments before surgery, surgery and all my appointments after have been nothing less then amazing. I absolutely love my results! I highly recommend them to anyone.
