Mommy Makeover in Portland, OR
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that helps a mom get her pre-baby body back.
During your mommy makeover, Dr. Urbinelli performs a unique combination of body contouring procedures to correct the physical changes from your pregnancy that you can’t improve with diet and exercise alone.
The goal of a mommy makeover at PNW Plastic Surgery is to transform your body back to its pre-baby state - toned, lifted, and youthful.
Reasons To Have a Mommy Makeover
If you are a woman who has given birth to children, you may have experienced weight gain and weight loss, which contribute to sagging skin and the loss of youthful body contours. A mommy makeover can help you regain your natural curves and enhance your appearance.
What are mommy makeover procedures?
At PNW Plastic Surgery, no mommy makeover is like another. Dr. Urbinelli creates individualized surgical plans that address your specific concerns and needs.
Some of the procedures he may recommend for your mommy makeover include:
Because of the rapid change in breast size during pregnancy and nursing, your breasts may sag and droop due to volume loss and skin changes. Unfortunately, you may not be able to fix your breast changes with diet and exercise alone.
During a breast lift, Dr. Urbinelli removes the excess skin, lifts and positions your breasts to improve symmetry and aesthetics. Due to breast deflation and volume loss, some women may benefit from augmentation with implants or fat grafting in addition to a lift.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, re-establishes abdominal tone and contours to your abdominal area, which has been left stretched and looser after childbearing. During the procedure, Dr. Urbinelli removes excess skin and fat and repositions the abdominal muscles to create a flat, tight, and toned midsection.
In addition to your breasts, the rapid weight gain that occurs during pregnancy may also stretch the skin on your arms or legs. When you lose the baby weight, you may be left with saggy, loose skin.
Dr. Urbinelli offers body contouring to treat these common post-pregnancy problems. During the procedure, he removes excess skin and fat and tightens the tissue. When possible, he uses minimally invasive techniques to keep surgical scars small.
To get rid of stubborn pockets of fat from your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or any other part of your body, Dr. Urbinelli performs liposuction.
What happens during a mommy makeover consultation?
When you visit PNW Plastic Surgery for a mommy makeover consultation, you can expect personalized attention and exceptional care. Before making any treatment recommendations, Dr. Urbinelli spends time getting to know you. The plastic surgeon will discuss surgical options and procedures with you. Our plastic surgeon may recommend:
- A breast lift, augmentation, or reduction to lift sagging breasts and to make breasts appear firmer and more youthful
- A tummy tuck is used to remove excess fat and skin on the abdomen, tightening sagging skin
- Liposuction, to remove excess fat in the abdomen, waist, back, and buttocks
- Labiaplasty, to tighten and recontour labial tissue that has been stretched due to childbirth
He asks detailed questions about your aesthetic concerns and goals, reviews your medical and surgical history, and performs a physical.
Dr. Urbinelli talks to you about the mommy makeover treatment options that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Then, together, you develop your mommy makeover surgical plan.
What To Expect During Recovery From a Mommy Makeover
After a mommy makeover, it’s common to experience swelling and bruising in the surgical area for several weeks. Your plastic surgeon will prescribe pain and anti-inflammatory medication for the first few days after surgery. You will visit our plastic surgeon regularly to check on your healing and monitor your progress.
