Mommy Makeover Vs. Liposuction

Liposuction and Mommy MakeoverHaving a slim body is something that most of us want, but that many of us don’t have. Even though eating healthily and working out regularly can help you get to an ideal weight, it doesn’t’ always do the trick. In fact, a lot of people have a hard time getting rid of the last 10-15 lbs on their own, which is why body contouring procedures like liposuction have started to gain more and more popularity. But, even though liposuction is still really popular, a new type of method has taken the industry by storm: the mommy makeover. As two different procedures that give you great options, some patients aren’t’ sure how to determine the difference between a mommy makeover and liposuction. Let’s take a closer look.

Liposuction

Liposuction is ideal for patients who have a little bit of stubborn fat to get rid of. During this surgical procedure, we will make small incisions in the skin, scrape off excess fat, and then suction it out with a vacuum-like device called a cannula. Whether you want to get rid of fat on your upper arms, abdomen, buttocks or thighs, liposuction gives patients real, long-lasting results.

Mommy Makeover

The unique thing about a mommy makeover is that it combines a variety of different procedures into (usually) one surgery. Typically, patients choose from liposuction, a tummy tuck, a breast lift, and breast augmentation. If you feel like you not only want to get liposuction done, but you also want to tighten the skin on your abdomen or enhance your breasts, then a  mommy makeover may be the way to go. During your mommy makeover consultation, we will discuss all of the options that you have and then create a customized surgical plan to give you the results that you want.

Whether you get liposuction or liposuction in conjunction with other surgeries as part of the mommy makeover, you really can’t go wrong. To learn more about both of these surgical options, contact our Guilford office today and call us at (203) 453-6635.

How to Tell If You Need a Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover | Tummy Tuck Guilford, CTBeing a mom is one of the most rewarding things you will ever go through, but it’s also one of the most tiring. Not only can pregnancy be beyond exhausting, but as soon as your newborn enters the world, you can kiss any amount of sleep goodbye. Once your body has healed from delivery, you will likely notice that your body simply isn’t what it used to be. Luckily, Dr. Gary J. Price offers a combination of procedures that make up the mommy makeover including a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast enhancement, and breast lift. So, how can you tell if you need a mommy makeover? Read on to learn more.

Your Boobs Hang Low

You may have heard elementary school kids singing the song about “Do your boobs hang low,” and laughed. But when your boobs hang low, that song is less funny and more of reality. After breastfeeding, your breasts can become deflated and hang a lot lower than they once did.

Your Breasts Are Smaller

If you breastfed, one thing you will lose afterward is your breast size. After being stretched day after day to meet the milk supply, your breasts can become deflated and lose volume. Thankfully, with some breast implants, we can give you fuller, perkier breasts.

Your Stomach Has Lost Elasticity

Even though you might be down to your pre-pregnancy weight, your skin may never look the same. After your stomach has been stretched for so long, it can make your skin lose elasticity. Luckily, with a tummy tuck, we can lift and tighten the excess skin around your belly to give you that taut stomach that you had before baby.
