Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Offers Mommy Makeover

Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center, based in Mansfield, TX and under the directorship of Dr. Michael L. Thornton, offers Mommy Makeover procedures. The Mommy Makeover is performed by combining abdominal and breast cosmetic surgical procedures simultaneously during one operation including, tummy tuck, liposuction, buttock fat transfer, breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction. The Mommy Makeover designed to help rejuvenate areas of your body that are typically affected by pregnancy and childbearing. More about this can be gleaned from Dr. Thornton’s Mommy Makeover webpage.

It should be noted that after pregnancy, women may develop mild to moderate muscle weakness and laxity of the abdominal muscles otherwise known as a rectus diastasis. In addition to stretching or separation of the abdominal muscles, your abdomen may also develop skin excess and stretch marks. Furthermore, after pregnancy your breasts may remain enlarge because of breast feeding, which will be followed by atrophy and breast deflation. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic breast surgery can allow moms to undergo a Mommy Makeover that will correct and rejuvenate the abdomen and breasts at the same time.

Dr. Michael L. Thornton, a double board-certified cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery explains, “The extent of the mommy makeover is directly related to the amount of excess skin, subcutaneous fat, laxity of the abdominal muscles and the amount of breast atrophy and post-pregnancy breast deflation. So, in circumstances where there is minimal abdominal muscle weakness and minimal skin excess, a mini tummy tuck may be all that you need.” He further explains, “however, for mothers requiring more extensive abdominal and body procedures, then a full abdominoplasty with or without liposuction of the abdomen and flanks would be recommended. In addition, there are also circumstances when liposuction harvested fat can be grafted to your buttocks for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure during the mommy makeover experience.”

A “mini” Mommy Makeover means that by using minimally invasive and less invasive plastic surgery procedures, such as the mini breast lift, mini tummy tuck, or liposuction, body and breast contouring could be achieved with faster recovery and less scarring.

Dr. Thornton also wants to clarify that a Mommy Makeover procedure is not intended for weight loss although you may lose a few pounds after the procedure, especially if liposuction is performed. However, most moms will drop one or two dress sizes because the mid-section and stomach will be flatter and slimmer.
