What is a mommy makeover - pregnant women

Dr. Adam Angeles and his team will work closely with you to create an individualized plan based on your concerns.

The physical changes associated with pregnancy and motherhood are often significant and can impact self-confidence and body image. The “Mommy Makeover” has become increasingly popular as a comprehensive way to address multiple post-partum body concerns in one surgery. Surgical intervention can jump-start a solid diet and exercise plan to help recent and/or long time moms feel confident in their bodies again.

Mommy Makeover services at Bend Plastic Surgery typically include one or more of the following: breast lift and augmentation, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, and vaginal rejuvenation. Our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Adam Angeles, and his team will work closely with you to create an individualized plan based on your concerns.

Common Cosmetic Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover at Bend Plastic Surgery

Liposuction

After a liposuction treatment, most people are ready to go back to full activity after just a few days of rest.

Even with a healthy diet and exercise, some areas of excess weight will be resistant to change. Liposuction is designed to target stubborn areas to remove extra fat deposits. Results of liposuction include a more toned appearance and customized body contouring for your appearance goals. Liposuction may be performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips and love handles. After a liposuction treatment, most people are ready to go back to full activity after just a few days of rest. This makes it an ideal solution for patients looking for a quick procedure and recovery in time to enjoy the summer.

Breast Lift and Augmentation

Pregnancy, along with breastfeeding, can cause a loss of breast volume and leave breasts feeling saggy or stretched out. Breast lifts and/or augmentations are a great solution for restoring the fullness and lift of your pre-pregnancy breasts!

Breast augmentations involve inserting an implant to enhance or restore the size and shape of your breasts to achieve the desired breast shape. Breast lifts are ideal for correcting dropping, and there are multiple surgical approaches depending on the volume and level of lift needed. Sometimes a combination of both a lift and implant can achieve the most youthful and full-volume results.

Whether your goal is a subtle lift or something more dramatic, our customized approach will target results tailored to your goals. Rest time for a breast lift generally requires 2-3 weeks while an augmentation can be up to 4-6 weeks before return to full activity.

Abdominoplasty/Panniculectomy

Whether your goal is a subtle lift or something more dramatic, our customized approach will target results tailored to your goals.

The abdominal and stomach area, in most cases, undergoes the most noticeable changes during and after pregnancy. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is designed to remove any excess skin around your abdominal area. It will also tighten your abdominal muscles, creating a firmer midsection. In cases of intense extra skin, sometimes with overhang, a panniculectomy may be preferred to remove the excess skin. Most patients that get an abdominoplasty or panniculectomy are ready to return to normal activity after just six weeks.

Labial Rejuvenation

Childbirth, weight loss and aging can lead to vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, labial sagging or largening, and other conditions that affect everyday comfort. A labial rejuvenation procedure will help reduce, reshape, and tighten the labial area. Recovery is typically 3-5 days to go back to work and 2-3 weeks to return to exercise.
