Mommy Makeover - Overview
There is no exact definition of what a “Mommy Makeover” entails. For most women, having a child or several children, definitely takes a toll on their body. For most women, it means loose skin on their belly. In addition, the fascia, which is the thin leather like structure over the abdominal musculature, stretches. Think of a nice leather suitcase which is stuffed full of clothes for months and does not regain its tight original tone. This most likely requires a Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty.
For some women, their breast volume decreases, leaving their breasts looking more like deflated balloons. Sometimes the shape is good but they just need volume and a Breast Implant will do a great job. Other times, the breast become ptotic (droopy) and they will require a Breast Lift at the same time. There are different types of lifts but basically it comes down to a circum-areolar incision or a circum-areolar incision plus a vertical incision. This vertical scar fades very nicely with time and allows Dr. Berman to actually tuck up the breast tissue, which is necessary for those women with a more serious degree of droopiness or who have more substantial breast tissue hanging down.
Sometimes after having babies, there is a shift in a woman’s fat distribution and they may find that it is very difficult to get rid of stubborn fat in the love handles, their saddle bags or sometimes the abdomen. Occasionally fat accumulates under the chin and in the neck area. These areas are usually very nicely treated by SmartLipo or Tummy Tuck.
The Mommy Makeover can treat all of these concerns in one sitting and for other women it makes more sense to stage these procedures over different sittings. I would encourage you to come in for a free cosmetic consult. When you schedule this appointment, please tell me office to give me 45 minutes of your appointment.
I had a mommy makeover done with Dr. Berman which included a breast lift with implants and a tummy tuck. I have been wanting to do this for a while now, with my second grandchild about to be born, I was ready. Dr. Berman made me feel comfortable and explained to me the procedures that I was interested in doing. He recommended that I do everything all at once so I wouldn't have to go under twice. I am two weeks out and everybody has been asking me who I went to for my surgery. I look and feel fantastic. I recommend Dr. Berman to anyone who is looking to make the leap.
I went to Dr Berman for a mommy make over because after 3 pregnancy my body needed some help. Dr Berman understud what I wanted and he deliverd it. I love my new belly and breast.. Thanks to Dr Berman and his team. ???? Also want to mention that they have a Portuguese speaking person on they're team. I felt so at home been able to speak my home Language.
It took me a long time to finally take the plunge and get my TT and breast lift. Dr. Berman and his staff made me very comfortable with the entire process. Realistic expectations and how to prepare myself for before and after. Dr. Berman has made himself available for all my questions (silly as they may be) and made me feel like his only patient. I'm VERY pleased with my results and know that he went above and beyond for my surgery. I feel amazing and am sooooooo glad I did it. I feel like a brand new woman. The process was seamless and I was back to the gym 6 wks postop. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!
