Naturally, pregnancy is such a beautiful time for a woman. Bringing your precious bundle of life and joy into the world is one of the most life-changing experiences. At the same time, the physical toll it takes on her body is especially taxing. While some are able to bounce back to their pre-preganancy look, others are left with changes that cannot be reversed through diet and exercise. Otherwise confident about themselves and the way they look before having kids, some women feel embarrassed and self-conscious afterwards. Pregnancy's effects, stretch marks, fat deposits, and a weakening of the abdominal wall, can adversely affect the self-image of some women.
At Southern Surgical Arts, The Mommy Makeover is a combination of several procedures designed to restore the look of a woman's body to what she had before pregnancy. The procedures commonly combined include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation with lift (if necessary) and SmartLipo-laser body sculpting. The first and simplest way to address loose skin after pregnancy is through a tummy tuck. In addition to removing the skin and stretch marks during the abdominoplasty, the surgeon may tighten, if necessary, the abdominal muscles if they have been weakened by your pregnancy. Using FDA-approved implants, a breast augmentation restores fullness and perkiness to your breasts. Another increasingly requested procedure among moms today is the labiaplasty, for moms who have stretched, enlarged, or asymmetrical labia due to childbirth. Consult with our physician to see if this procedure is right for you.
Deciding to have any kind of surgery on your body after becoming a mom can be an exciting process. Dr. Deal, Dr. Gardner, and Dr. Nease are sensitive to every concern and issue you may have in considering a Mommy Makeover. Every consultation is completely confidential, and they listen to your needs and goals. They are all fellowship-trained, board-certified cosmetic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Nease is also a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. They have performed more than 14,500 cosmetic surgery procedures combined over the past 11 years. An in-person consultation with one of our surgeons is one of the best ways to help identify your goals and discuss your treatment options and likely outcomes. You will also learn what you can expect during the recovery time after the procedure. The latest, proven technology is used to give you the best artistic results from the procedure. Sometimes the choice to elect for a procedure comes down to the particular surgeon you choose, so we invite you to take a look at some of the before and after photos of our satisfied patients.
Although the total, final cost will depend on factors and your particular goals, the Mommy Makeover at Southern Surgical Arts has typically averaged between $8,000 and $16,000. Our total cost covers the procedure, anethesia, materials/supplies used, and all routine follow-up visits (lab work and medications are excluded). There are no hidden fees or hidden costs.
