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.
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.
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.
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.
