Dads Deserve Makeovers Too! Introducing the Daddy Do-Over

“Do I Have a Dad Bod?”

More men have been asking that question lately.

It’s easy to see why.

With our sedentary lifestyles, processed foods, and high-stress lifestyles, it’s no wonder obesity is a common problem around the world.

Men who gain weight can begin to look older than their chronological years.

And while childbirth and breastfeeding do wreak havoc on women’s bodies, men are not immune to the body-destroying nature of raising children. Men with children often have expanding waistlines and form male breasts, otherwise known as gynecomastia, as they grow older.

Men who don’t have children experience these same things, so don’t think you need to have children to qualify for a daddy makeover.

That’s right. We are here to discuss the options you have of regaining your lost youth.

Instead of looking like you have a basketball under your shirt, cosmetic surgery can give you the slimmed-down figure to look great on the court, even during a game of shirts and skins.

Imagine not having breasts anymore and being able to swim at the beach without a shirt and feeling great about yourself in the meantime.

Whether you call it a daddy do-over, daddy makeover, or head-to-toe transformation, it’s time to consider the possibilities. What would you change about yourself if you could with one or more cosmetic surgeries?

Women have the mommy makeover and now men have the daddy do-over. Here’s what a surgery like that entails.

Cosmetic Procedures to Boost Your Dad Bod

Cosmetic surgeries exist to keep you from appearing middle-aged before your time.

Using the right procedures, you can remove the spare tire from around your waist.

Those undereye bags that make you look like you haven’t slept well in weeks? They can become a thing of the past as well.

Cosmetic surgery can make you appear slimmer, more alert, and rejuvenated. Like you just came back from a relaxing vacation in a time machine.

A daddy do-over is a grouping of procedures aimed at helping you achieve tighter, more toned skin and more youthful features.

By having several surgeries at one time, you drastically reduce the risk that comes from using anesthesia multiple times, and you only have to endure one recovery period.

These are only some of the benefits a daddy makeover can yield. The biggest benefit is that you get to look in the mirror afterward and see a million bucks staring back at you

When it comes to boosting your youth and attractiveness, here are a few options to explore.

Facial Surgeries

Blepharoplasty

Otherwise known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery for men.

The procedure removes the fatty deposits from underneath the eyelids. You won’t have that puffy look any longer, nor will you have those heavy undereye bags.

The upper lids can also be reconfigured during eyelid surgery to repair droopiness, making you appear younger and more awake.

Neck Lift

The neck tends to show your age more than any other body part, aside from the face.

As we get older, the thin skin of the neck becomes thinner, leading to a loss of volume, fine lines, and wrinkling.

A neck lift aims to remove excess tissue and tighten the entire neck area. The procedure can erase years from your appearance while smoothing away thin skin folds and wrinkles.

Facelift

Just like the neck lift, the facelift involves the removal of excess skin and the tightening of all facial areas, from forehead to chin and around both ears.

Some say the facelift can erase decades from one’s appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles can disappear instantly after facelift surgery, and the results can last a lifetime.

What Are Some Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Options?

Some Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

For men not ready to commit to surgery, there are several med-spa therapies that can be added to a daddy do-over procedure.

These techniques can repair skin damage, erase blemishes, and contour body areas without surgery.

VelaShape Body Contouring

This FDA-approved technique can be used on all skin types. The treatment recontours problematic areas such as your abdomen, upper arms, or upper thighs.

To qualify for VelaShape, your BMI should be below 30, which indicates you are close to your ideal weight.

The body contouring treatment uses a combination of four separate mechanisms to reduce the circumference of the treated area and tighten the skin. These include vacuum suction, infrared light energy, radiofrequency energy, and mechanical massage.

Each session takes up to forty minutes and leaves you with fewer body toxins, fewer fat cells, an increase in lymphatic drainage, and improved blood circulation.

The results will also leave your skin smoother, and the treatment area slimmer, with no downtime. You may need multiple sessions to achieve your body shape goals.

Renuvion Skin Tightening

This non-surgical treatment is useful for making the skin tighter from nearly head to toe.

Renuvion can be used above the shoulders to treat jowls and a saggy neck.

Renuvion is also useful for wrinkles, age lines, uneven pigmentation, acne scarring, and melasma (a skin condition characterized by grayish patches or multi-freckled spots).

Laser Resurfacing

CO2 fractional laser resurfacing is used to rejuvenate your facial appearance and restore a youthful glow.

The technique uses laser technology to delve deep underneath the skin to repair the damage, minimize scars, treat discoloration, and diminish wrinkles.

Fractional lasers treat the skin in tiny areas. The laser heats and leaves a pattern on the skin, which allows the skin to slowly regenerate on its own. By invigorating collagen production, the skin that grows back is more youthful and firmer to the touch.

Dad Bod Surgeries

Male Liposuction

When belly fat and excess fatty tissue in other locations plague you, liposuction can slim you down.

Problem areas like your abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, and love handles can be significantly improved with male liposuction or HD-liposuction.

Both techniques effectively suction fat from the treatment area, leaving the area recontoured with a healthy glow.

Traditional liposuction uses a saline solution combined with an anesthetic to emulsify the fat before it is broken up and extracted from the body.

HD or VASER Lipo uses radiofrequency energy to melt the fat, making it easier to remove.

Liposuction is a highly popular daddy do-over procedure, as it can easily be combined with other cosmetic surgeries, such as the tummy tuck.

Male Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck is useful for erasing hanging belly fat from the abdomen. The technique, also referred to as abdominoplasty, can also be used for stomach wrinkling.

Tummy tuck surgery aims to recontour the midsection by removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. The surgeon must recreate a natural belly button before the skin is tightened, leaving you with a flatter midsection, and surging self-esteem.

Male tummy tucks that are part of a daddy do-over are also geared at achieving the ideal male form. With stronger abdominal muscles, you may even be close to achieving a six-pack. Your results may vary.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Daddy Do-Overs, Makeover Surgery for Dad Bod in Los Angeles

Enlarged male breasts can make you feel self-conscious, hindering your quality of life.

Gynecomastia surgery can be added to a daddy makeover procedure to help you achieve a flatter, more masculine chest.

Through tiny incisions, liposuction is first used to suction out fatty tissue.

Excess skin can then be removed before the chest is tightened and recontoured for the final result.

With advances in cosmetic techniques, gynecomastia surgery is minimally invasive and involves minimal downtime.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Daddy Do-Over?

You don’t necessarily have to have a dad bod to have a daddy do-over.

One doesn’t even have to have children to have this procedure.

You merely have to be a man who is unhappy with one or more of their body parts.

You can choose procedures that address your specific concerns, such as wrinkles on your face and fatty deposits on your upper arms.

The suite of procedures can be carefully customized to the severity of your symptoms, your personal anatomy, and your body shape goals.

The best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a grouping of these male-oriented cosmetic procedures is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Babak Moein of Moein Surgical Arts.

Can Cosmetic Surgery be Used to Smooth Away Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are a common concern for many people.

Both men and women can experience these marks.

Women often get the marks during pregnancy, and both sexes can form them after gaining an extreme amount of weight.

While stretch marks can form on any part of the body, the most notable area is the abdomen.

If you have stretch marks and wish you didn’t, you might find yourself wondering if cosmetic surgery can take care of them.

Keep reading to find out.

If you have marks and don’t want to wait, get answers to your questions and information about potential treatment by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Moein of Moein Surgical Arts.

How Do Stretch Marks Form?

How Do Stretch Marks Form?

Stretch marks form on the skin of adult men and women of all skin colors and ages.

While the skin marks don’t usually accompany discomfort or pain, many find them to be a cosmetic nuisance.

Stretch marks have a characteristic appearance that makes them easily identifiable.

The common stretch mark looks like a streak with elongated lines across the skin.

Based on where they are located and how they formed, these unsightly blemishes can go away on their own, but many are permanent.

Stretch marks are caused by the skin stretching significantly and rapidly. This is why the marks traditionally show up during pregnancy or after major weight gain.

Bodybuilders and other athletes who experience rapid increases in muscle mass through weight lifting can also get these marks.

The marks can be different shades ranging from purple and pink to deep red. Over time, the marks can fade to silver or white.

They can be flat or raised above the skin and slightly puffy. For some, they also itch.

Stretch marks can improve over time. There are also a few cosmetic treatments that can help with the marks. Let’s look at those now.

What Cosmetic Surgeries Can Help with Stretch Marks?

Abdominoplasty

An abdominoplasty procedure, also referred to as a tummy tuck, aims to remove excess skin from underneath the belly button.

This can be good news for women who experienced stretch marks during pregnancy. The region between the navel and pubis is the most commonplace for the marks to form.

During the tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon makes an incision across the abdomen and above the pubis.

Excess fat and tissue are removed before the upper flap of skin is pulled down and taught. The result makes the body tight from the breasts down to the pubis.

For many, this surgery is excellent for completely eradicating stretch marks from abdominal skin.

Your surgeon may be able to remove the marks on your hips as well as your abdomen, depending on the extent of the abdominoplasty surgery.

A tummy tuck costs around $6,154, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Thigh Lift

Some people can form stretch marks on their inner thighs. A thigh lift aims to tighten and tone the upper thighs.

Similar to the tummy tuck, many find the thigh lift procedure useful for eradicating stretch marks.

A thigh lift can be performed on the inner or outer thigh. During the surgery, excess fat and skin are removed.

The surgeon first makes an incision down the groin line. This is where the thigh meets the pubic area.

The skin is first pulled tightly before the excess is removed. That’s for an inner thigh lift.

For an outer thigh lift, the incision extends around the outer thigh all the way to the hips. Once the excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is pulled taught and sutured into place.

Your surgeon may be able to erase all of your stretch marks with a thigh lift while also making your legs slimmer and more youthful at the same time.

Breast Lift

Breast Lift to Remove Stretch Marks in Los Angeles, LA

Weight gain and pregnancy can cause stretch marks to form on the breasts.

When the breasts have become saggy and stretched out, a breast lift is just what the cosmetic surgeon ordered.

Rapid breast growth causes a breakdown of the skin, which is already on the thinner side. Stretch marks can be the inevitable result.

A breast lift can raise the breasts back to a normal position on the chest.

This lift also simultaneously tightens the skin of the breast and eradicates the marks for a smoother, younger-looking appearance.

A breast lift costs $4,816, on average, according to CareCredit, a popular medical financing provider.

Mommy Makeover and Daddy Do-Overs Can Also Erase Stretch Marks

If your stretch marks are in areas that are commonly treated with a mommy makeover or daddy do-over procedure, you may be in luck.

In a single surgery, you may get a complete transformation and help with your skin blemish issue.

A mommy makeover combines several surgeries in one. You may get a breast lift, abdominoplasty, and thigh lift, for example.

In one session, you get to have all those areas tightened, and your stretch marks removed while enduring a single downtime recovery.

A daddy do-over works the same way. You may have an abdominoplasty, thigh lift or arm lift, and gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction for stretch marks on your chest).

The cost of a mommy makeover or daddy do-over is between $10,000 and $20,000.

Are There Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments for Stretch Marks?

Non-invasive treatments that can also be found at your cosmetic surgeon’s office can work for stretch marks.

Traditionally, treatments like chemical peels, IPL treatments, and laser skin resurfacing have been used to treat scars and other blemishes like age spots. Your surgeon may also decide to use these med-spa techniques in treating your stretch marks.

Can Stretch Marks be Prevented?

The best way to prevent these marks is to keep your skin moisturized.

Keeping your weight stable can keep your skin from stretching.

Pregnancy may cause stretch marks to form. Talk to your doctor about creams, lotions, and other treatments that may help to keep “tiger stripes” at bay.

Getting rid of marks can make you feel better about yourself if they currently get you down.

However, surgery is not something you should jump into.

Will Insurance Cover a Mommy Makeover/Daddy Do-Over?

When considering a major procedure like a mommy makeover or daddy do-over, it’s understandable to want to know all your options.

While savings are available for cosmetic surgery patients who pay cash, and medical financing can help you have surgery now while worrying about payment later, having your insurance pay for your procedure is always the best choice.

A mommy makeover or daddy do-over can be expensive, but insurance could take the burden of paying for your procedure off your shoulders.

Imagine looking your best, with more attractive contours, and boosted self-esteem, while having your insurance provider pick up the tab.

Let’s look into what procedures health insurers are likely to pay for and other options you may want to know before scheduling your cosmetic reinvention.

What is a Mommy Makeover/Daddy Do-Over?

Mommy Makeover/Daddy Do-Over

A mommy makeover is a multi-component surgical procedure that is customized to meet the goals of the patient.

These makeover surgeries are popular with women who have had children. Although, mommy makeover procedures can also be beneficial to women looking to transform their figures following significant weight loss or for aging patients who wish to recapture their youthful appearance. You can remove stubborn fat, gain smoother body contours, and restore lost breast volume. Most of all, you can look younger and more rejuvenated with a mommy makeover. It can do wonders for your self-esteem.

Daddy do-overs are becoming increasingly more common as more men flock to cosmetic surgery centers nationwide. More than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures are performed on men each year. This suite of procedures includes both surgical and non-surgical options. Men can choose between body contouring and facial rejuvenation to fend off dad bod. They can keep age at bay for at least a bit longer.

What Does a Mommy Makeover/Daddy Do-Over Include?

The mommy makeover and daddy-over procedures include multiple procedures and treatments. Each is designed to target a specific area.

Mommy Makeover Procedures

Your mommy makeover could include breast augmentation if you are insecure about the size of your breasts. Or it can include a breast lift if you worry about age-related sag.

Your cosmetic session might include breast augmentation and breast lift combined to add volume and perkiness to your breasts.

To make your abdomen firmer, your mommy makeover might include a tummy tuck.

The surgeon may employ Labiaplasty to tighten and rejuvenate your feminine parts.

And liposuction could give you the hourglass figure you’ve always wanted, or slimmer arms and legs, whatever you desire.

Daddy Do-Over Procedures

Daddy do-overs have a different set of surgeries since men don’t have to undergo the bodily changes associated with pregnancy like women do.

The daddy do-over procedure might include eyelid surgery and brow lift to make you look refreshed, alert, and younger than your chronological years.

Your surgical session might have a facelift to erase wrinkles and fine lines.

A neck lift can give you a more chiseled jawline with reduced jowls.

Kybella non-surgical injectable cosmetic can eradicate your double chin and contribute to improved jaw definition.

If you are a man with a lesser degree of aging, you can use injectable neurotoxin (BOTOX). It will temporarily reduce forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

And like mommy makeovers, daddy do-overs can include the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and liposuction. They will give you a tighter midsection and slimmer frame.

While you wouldn’t normally associate breast surgery with men, gynecomastia surgery is gaining in popularity as an inclusion into the daddy do-over. With male gyno surgery, excess breast tissue is removed, contributing to a more masculine chest shape.

Both men and women can include skin tightening Renuvion, which uses J-Plasma technology to add firmness and definition to more youthful-looking skin. Another technique that you can include is HD-liposuction, which takes traditional lipo to the next level. With HD-lipo, otherwise known as Hi-Def lipo, the superficial layer of fat is removed under the skin, which allows your hard-earned gains to show through.

Whereas regular liposuction is good for removing stubborn pockets of fat, HD-lipo is excellent for gaining more definition to various areas of the body. You can virtually use HD-liposuction everywhere from head to toe with almost no downtime or scars.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover/Daddy Do-Over Cost?

Mommy Makeover/Daddy Do-Over Cost

Because these procedures are highly personalized, it is tough to nail down an average cost for both the mommy makeover and daddy do-over procedures.

A consultation with a bariatric surgeon can provide you with an accurate quote for the procedures you have in mind.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you can expect to pay between $10,000 and $20,000 for a mommy makeover or daddy do-over.

At Moein Surgical Arts, Dr. Babak Moein will give you an estimate for surgery and any associated fees you can expect. Based on the estimation, you can make the appropriate financial decision.

Will Insurance Pay for a Mommy Makeover or Daddy Do-Over?

As you will learn during your initial cosmetic surgery consultation, the answer is it depends. Insurance providers normally cover procedures that are medically necessary. They do not typically cover procedures that are elective. Unfortunately, many of the techniques included in the average mommy makeover or daddy do-over are elective in nature.

There may be instances where your heavy breasts cause friction and rashes, which could lead to infections. The insurance company may be willing to pay for a breast lift in that case.

That can at least offset some of your costs for the entire makeover procedure.

The same goes for a tummy tuck if hanging skin causes problems on your abdomen. Bariatric surgery might be another whole-body surgery whereby insurance companies may be apt to cover the costs since weight loss surgery can save your life.

While bariatric surgery is not cosmetic in nature, it does involve reinventing yourself. Therefore, you should consider it with a mommy makeover or daddy do-over. You might opt to save the cosmetic body contouring and facial rejuvenation for after you’ve lost the excess weight, which is known as post-bariatric body contouring.

While insurance is unlikely to cover a majority of the procedures usually included with a mommy makeover or daddy do-over, medical financing is available. Companies like CareCredit let you have surgery now so you can worry about payment later. The repayment terms are reasonable and affordable and give you peace of mind while your procedure boosts your self-confidence.

Schedule your initial consultation for a mommy makeover or daddy do-over by calling Moein Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, California. This holiday season, give yourself the gift of creating a whole new you. Dial (310)694-4486.

The best body contouring surgeon can mold your body like clay, transforming those parts about yourself you happen to dislike.

From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, any body part is fair game. If you want better contours, and a more attractive frame, a body contouring surgeon can make your aesthetic goals come to life.

Here are fifteen reasons you should call Dr. Moein if you have an aspect of yourself you don’t like, and want to see a totally new, more attractive you staring back at you in the mirror.

1- A Variety of Cosmetic Specialties

Dr. Moein is highly skilled and trained in the following cosmetic surgery techniques.

  • Vaser Liposuction: When troublesome areas of your body seem to be holding onto too much unwanted fat, VASER Lipo can remove that fat and tighten your skin when diet and exercise fail to work.
  • Tummy Tucks: A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to help you achieve your fitness goals, giving you a flatter abdominal area.

2- He Also Specializes in Weight Loss (Surgical & Non-Surgical)

Weight Loss (Surgical & Non-Surgical)

Dr. Moein offers two primary types of weight loss procedures at Moein Surgical Arts. The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve), and intragastric balloon (gastric balloon), can both help you lose weight when obesity has threatened your health and life.

Obesity often brings with it associated illnesses like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Obesity can also make you susceptible to cancer and early death. Both the gastric sleeve (surgical) and the gastric balloon (non-surgical) can help you reverse obesity, attain your dream figure, and eliminate all those associated illnesses for a longer and healthier life.

The gastric balloon, on the other hand, offers a non-surgical and gentle approach to rapid weight loss. The procedure works by endoscopically placing an empty silicon balloon into your stomach through your esophagus. The balloon is filled with a saline solution and effectively fills up a large portion of your stomach so you feel fuller after eating less food.

Once you have reached your goal weight, the balloon can be easily removed to allow you to return to a completely normal lifestyle.

3- Travels Worldwide Doing Volunteer Work

 

Dr. Moein is often seen traveling to all four corners of the world, where he provides volunteer surgery for the unfortunate among us. He doesn’t do this out of obligation or acclaim. Dr. Moein loves what he does, and he loves meeting and helping people, so he goes out of his way to give back as best he can. By doing so, the doctor helps to improve the world with every new smile he helps to shape with his highly attuned surgical techniques.

4- Dr. Moein Offers Med Spa Services, Too

 

In addition to being an excerpt in cosmetic and minimally-invasive surgery, Dr. Moein also provides a number of med spa services that focus on your body, skin, and hair.

  • Body: Want firmer skin? Dr. Moein can help with a procedure known as Forma laser skin tightening. The doctor can also help you achieve a more attractive frame without surgery using non-surgical body contouring. And when it comes to giving you more attractive legs, ask Dr. Moein about his effective cellulite treatment. These med spa techniques are becoming more popular all the time, and now you can have them all done at Moein Surgical Arts.
  • Skin: Renuvion can give you more attractive skin while removing blemishes like redness and sunspots, even small scars. Botox and fillers can give your face and other body parts improved contours using Dr. Moein’s artistic touch. Or choose laser resurfacing to make your skin smoother and blemish-free the next time you schedule a med-spa appointment.
  • Hair: Dr. Moein encourages you to toss out your razor and choose laser hair removal instead. Get a smoother upper lip, bikini area, or hair-free underarms, or legs without having to shave for long-lasting results.

The procedure is unique in that it has no set operations attached to it. A woman could choose to get a partial or full tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Or she could go on to have liposuction, a butt lift, tummy tuck, and breast lift. These are just some of the possibilities to consider.

Cosmetic Options to Consider with a Mommy Makeover

When you schedule a consultation with a body contouring surgeon, they will ask you which areas of your body you wish to improve. Thanks to advances in cosmetic and plastic surgery, you now have access to a range of surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. These procedures aim to improve the look of your breasts, abdomen, buttocks, waist, or genitalia. Choose a few or combine them all into a super procedure conducted in a single or a few surgical sessions.

What procedures would your ideal mommy makeover consist of?

Breast Augmentation/Reduction/Lift

Having a baby and breastfeeding can lead many women to become unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts. When the breasts experience significant sagging or drooping, there are a few plastic surgery procedures to consider. A mommy makeover can include them.

A mommy makeover can include breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a breast lift.

A breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) involves using breast implants or the fat transfer procedure to increase the breasts’ size. The cosmetic surgery is a popular addition to the mommy makeover. It helps to restore breast volume that the mother has lost following childbirth and the loss of the post-pregnancy weight.

Breast augmentation using saline implants or your natural fat can also improve your natural breast size symmetry or give you a noticeably rounded shape. With larger or rounder breasts, your breast-to-hip contours will balance out, giving you a more attractive body frame.

A breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) can help to remove excess breast tissue, especially if you are experiencing back pain or find the breast tissue cumbersome, such as when exercising.

We can use breast lift (mastopexy) to help with droop, sagging skin, and extra breast tissue. Breast lifts have grown in popularity by 70% since 2000, with the plastic surgery outpacing breast implants two to one. In some cases, the areola will become enlarged after childbirth and breastfeeding, which the breast lift can also correct. The overall effect of a mastopexy is to rejuvenate your figure with a youthful and uplifted profile.

We can add any of these breast surgery procedures to your mommy makeover. It will boost your appearance and self-confidence.

Buttock Augmentation

Buttock Augmentation

The buttocks can also sag or become flatter following pregnancy, childbirth, and after fluctuating weight gain and loss. We can combine buttock enhancement surgery with a mommy makeover to put a little more meat in your seat.

Butt augmentation has other names such as gluteal augmentation or gluteal lift. It is a plastic surgery which will enhance the buttocks’ size, contour, and shape. There are several surgeries you can take advantage of when a toned or rounded posterior is your goal.

  • A buttock lift improves the tone of the underlying tissue in the buttock area. This surgery is good to add if you experience excess sag in your buttock and wish to have tighter skin back there.
  • A Brazilian butt lift aka #BBL is a common cosmetic surgery procedure. It involves the fat transfer technique to provide you with natural enhancement. Your surgeon will remove the fat from another area of your body, such as your abdomen, before using that fat to boost the shape and roundness of your behind. Since we use your own fatty tissue, you get trimmer in one area, and naturally more rounded in another. This surgery has become very popular lately, especially among celebrities and social media influencers.
  • Buttock implants use silicone-filled implants that are implanted surgically into the deep tissues of the buttock. This surgery is ideal if you have a flat behind and want to add a natural roundness to your butt, especially if you have no fat anywhere in your body to harvest for a BBL procedure.

Adding any of these buttock augmentation techniques to your surgical plan can help you fill out your clothes better. It will add more eye-pleasing contours to your frame.

Liposuction

Liposuction is another common mommy makeover inclusion that involves the slimming and reshaping of various areas around the body. The surgery uses a liquid solution to break up the fat underneath the skin, whereby it is sucked out using a wand-like device known as a cannula. The procedure is useful for removing large or small quantities of stubborn fat in the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, back, upper arms, inner knee, chest, cheeks, chin, neck, calves, and ankles.

VASER Lipo

Some certified surgeons like Dr. Moein in Los Angeles offer VASER assisted liposuction. It can be combined with a mommy makeover to give you a more toned and athletic look.

Whereas we use traditional liposuction to suck out large amounts of fat, VASER is more precise. VASER Liposuction uses ultrasonic sound waves that shake up the fat before it is removed with a handheld device. It makes it possible to etch out areas of fat to let your body’s musculature show through.

Liposuction can make you slimmer but VASER Liposuction can make your body truly stand out by defining muscle groups. Ask about this surgery during your mommy makeover consultation.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) removes excess fat and abdominal skin from the midsection. The procedure also restores weakened abdominal muscles to create a smoother and firmer abdominal profile.

The tummy tuck is a widely popular addition to the mommy makeover procedure. It can correct issues such as loss of skin elasticity that can occur during pregnancy. As the growing baby pushes against the abdomen from the inside, the muscle can separate from the abdominal wall. The only way to correct this separation is through surgery.

Meanwhile, the skin continues to stretch to accommodate the little one, often to limits that make it difficult to bounce right back after the birth of your child.

While the tummy tuck should never be used as a weight loss solution, it can help you get a flatter tummy and stronger abdominal muscles for a midsection that is more youthful and attractive.

We can combined abdominoplasty with traditional lipo or VASER Lipo to help you remove belly fat in addition to getting a flatter stomach.

Keep in mind that the tummy tuck cannot mitigate stretch marks on the lower abdomen and around the belly button. However, if the stretch marks are in an area where the skin will be removed, you may have the marks removed entirely as a side benefit of your tummy tuck surgery.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

The term “vaginal rejuvenation surgery” actually describes a range of procedures. All of these procedures are designed to improve the appearance or function of your genitalia.

We refer to this subcategory of procedures by terms like genital plastic surgery, female genital rejuvenation surgery, or Designer Vagina Surgery. All of them have the same general goal. It is to enhance what nature gave you in a more aesthetic and functional way. The surgeries include labiaplasty, labia majoraplasty, clitoral hood reduction, vaginoplasty, and monsplasty (which reduces the fatty tissue above the vagina).

Things to Consider Before You Begin Scheduling a Mommy Makeover

Scheduling a Mommy Makeover

If you are of sound health, have decided not to have more children, and are at your ideal weight, you might be an excellent candidate for mommy makeover surgery.

Good health and a healthy weight are only the physical requirements of surgery. Any plastic or cosmetic surgeon you work with will also want to assess your mental health, which includes having realistic expectations on the final outcome.

If you meet all the requirements and you have more belly fat, wrinkles, sag, or loose skin than you would prefer, and you want it all gone, schedule a mommy makeover and finally transform your face and body to the ones you want.

The Cost of the Ultimate Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover costs vary depending on a few factors. The mommy makeover procedure is typically charged as a single fee. Your session may consist of multiple procedures in one though. The cost includes the surgeon’s fees, the hospital or surgical facility costs, fees for anesthesia, medication prescriptions, post-surgical garments, medical tests, X-rays, implants, and potentially others. The overall cost of a mommy makeover surgery can range anywhere from $9,000 to $20,000, on average. The only way to get an accurate total for the procedures you have in mind is to schedule a consultation with a qualified body contouring surgeon near you.

Will Health Insurance Cover a Mommy Makeover?

Health Insurance is unlikely to pay for a majority of mommy makeover procedures because they are in the category of aesthetic improvements. Only when surgery is designed to repair a medical issue, like hernia repair, will insurance usually cover the surgical costs.

When you set up a consultation with a surgeon for a mommy makeover procedure, you can discuss payment options at that time to offset the costs.

Medical financing is one such option. With companies like CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending, you can finally get the means to pay for surgery with extended and easy-to-manage payment terms. If you have the means to pay for your mommy makeover with cash, many surgeons offer a cash pay discount. Ask your surgeon during your consultation for details.

What is Recovery Like Following a Mommy Makeover?

Recovery Like Following a Mommy Makeover

There is no one-size-fits-all recovery plan for mommy makeover surgery because there are so many variable parts. Your surgery may involve a few days of rest at home and then it’s back to your typical routine. That might be the case for a minor procedure like facial fillers.

For more involved surgeries like the Brazilian Butt Lift or breast enhancement, along with a tummy tuck and leg lift, you may find yourself resting and recovering over the span of a few weeks. If you are under general anesthesia during surgery, the effects of the numbing solution may take time to recover from, as well.

Healing Plan

Your surgeon will give you a healing plan. It includes risks to look for like excess bleeding and discomfort that can sometimes follow aesthetic surgery. You will discover how much recovery time you’ll need before engaging in heavy lifting, exercising like normal, or returning to work. Don’t worry, you will have ample time to anticipate and plan for any recovery time you can expect.

You may be required to wear a compression garment, wear surgical drains, or take prescription pain medication following surgery, depending on all that was combined with your single-surgery session. Whether you had extra skin removed, implants put in, or fat removed from your body, the healing process will be over before you know it. That’s when the full results of the surgical treatments will begin shining through, along with your inner beauty.

However, your surgeon is responsible for minimizing operative pain and ensuring you experience a restful and successful recovery period. Ask about the specifics of the recovery period during your initial consultation. You can also ask about mommy makeover scars (which are often minimized or hidden within the natural folds of your body), and to have the best time possible while out of commission following the contouring procedure of your choice.

Are There Any Risks to a Mommy Makeover?

All surgeries come with risks, and body contouring procedures are no different. There is a risk from general anesthetic, risk of infection, and of excessive bleeding. We can be mitigate all of these ill side effects of surgery by selecting a skilled surgeon. Your surgeon will discuss potential complications that can come with the various surgical treatments you want as part of your makeover surgery.

How Long Do Mommy Makeover Results Last?

You can get a long life out of your mommy makeover results. It becomes possible by living a healthy lifestyle, eating a balanced diet, and drinking plenty of water. The longevity of your surgical effects depends on your skin’s ability to retain elasticity, and proper hydration and nutrition can help.

What is the limitation of a Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Certainly, any procedure has risks and benefits, and when combined together there is always careful consideration that needs to be made in order for your surgeon to recommend the procedure. These include the time under anesthesia, the vectors of incisions, and the degree of pain, and the extent of recovery. Keeping in mind that the best surgical combination will balance safety, effectivity, and cost.

MOMMY MAKEOVERS FOR BEAUTIFUL MOTHERS

Childbirth is one of life’s miracles, and giving birth is a true honor. If only giving birth didn’t wreak so much havoc on your body!

Following childbirth, and after breastfeeding, many women fondly remember the bodies they used to have. Somewhere along the line and during the childrearing process, many women experience sagging hips, a surge of belly fat, love handles, and other bodily imperfections.

A mommy makeover can help you feel better about your body again. The term “Mommy Makeover” describes several procedures in one. There are many benefits to having this incredibly popular surgery, and the results can give you your pre-baby body back!

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover combines several procedures aimed at restoring the shape and proportions of your body. The surgery is popular with mothers after childbirth and breastfeeding. You should be finished having children by the time you start considering a mommy makeover. You should also be around your ideal weight. The procedure can help you fulfill your body shape goals by transforming your body nearly all over.

Popular Surgeries Combined with the Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover typically includes the following cosmetic surgical procedures.

Breast Lift:

The breasts are a major part of a woman’s overall physical appearance. The breasts can undergo dramatic changes, whether it is due to aging or experiences like pregnancy. Some women are dissatisfied with the amount their breasts sag. Those looking for a way to rejuvenate their breasts may be ideal candidates for a breast lift.

A breast lift can restore your breasts to pre-pregnancy conditions following breastfeeding. The act of breastfeeding can cause the tissue on and around the breasts to sag. The breast lift secures the breast at a higher position on the chest for a natural appearance. The breast lift can also involve the repositioning of the nipples and areolas to match your newly lifted breasts.

The procedure is a versatile one, and there are several different techniques used depending on the severity of sagging and the patient’s anatomy. After the procedure, patients can generally return to their daily activities within a week.

Breast Augmentation:

Your breasts can be boosted in size, shape, and symmetry with breast augmentation surgery. This procedure involves breast implants to add volume to your breasts and correct asymmetrical differences. The implants are made of saline or silicone and are placed under the chest muscle for a natural-looking size boost.

Natural Breast Augmentation:

While breast implants use saline or silicone to add size, natural breast augmentation involves the implantation of your own fat into your breasts. The fatty tissue is first extracted from a donor site on another area of your body. You may have fat taken from your abdomen, hips, buttocks, or another area where excess fat is present. This fat extraction process gives you the added benefit of slimming another area of your body while your breasts get a subtle volume boost. The results look extremely natural and will help to accentuate your curves.

Liposuction:

Liposuction is used during the natural breast augmentation process to extract fat from your donor site. You can also use this procedure on other areas of your body to improve your natural silhouette. Common lipo sites include the neck, back, flanks, hips, upper thighs, and upper arms.

Tummy Tuck:

Pregnancy can cause you to build up belly fat on your abdomen. You might also experience sagging skin in this area. Many women discover that this fatty tissue and excess skin can’t readily be exercised or dieted away. Surgery is the only option, and the tummy tuck is the surgery to save the day. The tummy tuck can give you a flatter tummy once the swelling from the procedure goes down. You will also have stronger abdominal muscles. You might even have more prominent ab muscles once you’ve fully healed.

Breast/Arm/Body Lift:

Body lift procedures let you tighten and tone various areas of your body, such as your upper arms and upper thighs. You can also have your bra area lifted, depending on how much fat is present and how much the skin hangs. If you have bat-wings or bingo-wings, an arm lift might be right for you. Flabby thighs can benefit from a thigh lift. And excess fat that catches on your bra or that becomes uncomfortable for you can be eradicated with a back lift or bra lift. These surgeries give you younger, more rejuvenated skin. Ask your cosmetic surgeon about the scarless body lift, which uses Renuvion J-Plasma technology for safe and effective skin tightening.

5 Things to Consider Before Undergoing a Mommy Makeover Procedure

1- Are You a Good Candidate?

Before you undergo a mommy makeover, you should be in good health with no plans to have future children. If you smoke, you might want to consider quitting before surgery for your safety and to improve your aesthetic outcomes.

2- What Do You Want to Improve?

You might be tempted to choose a head-to-toe mommy makeover. For safety reasons, your cosmetic surgeon will likely limit the number of surgeries you can have during any given session. Your surgeon will do whatever is best for your aesthetic goals while ensuring your safety. Definitely tell your cosmetic surgeon about any areas of your body that cause you stress or discomfort. Examples could include a saggy neck, saggy breasts, too much belly fat, a saggy bottom, a flat bottom, saggy thighs, and flabby arms.

3- Do You Have Realistic Expectations?

While a mommy makeover can help you look better and younger, even, your surgeon is not a miracle worker. You should not expect perfection once you wake up from your surgical procedure. If you can manage to have expectations like firmer, more youthful skin, you’ll be more likely to be satisfied with your results. Your cosmetic surgeon will help you manage your expectations by showing you before and after photographs and by discussing the outcomes you can expect.

4- Are You Educated About the Mommy Makeover?

By now you know a little more about what the mommy makeover entails. What you may be asking about is cost. How much are the fees associated with the mommy makeover? The cost of a mommy makeover can range from $9,000 to $20,000 and may or may not include surgeon fees, surgical facility fees, and other surgery-related expenses.

5- Have You Scheduled a Cosmetic Surgery Consultation?

The first step to undergoing a mommy makeover is to select the best cosmetic surgeon you can find. A quick Google search may point you to several cosmetic professionals in your area. When choosing a cosmetic surgeon, you want a professional with experience and years of clinical training. Most of all, you want a cosmetic artist with before and after photographs and testimonials from happy patients. This lets you know that the surgeon has an excellent track record. Most importantly, it lets you know the cosmetic surgeon can give you the aesthetic results you want.
