Breast Augmentation as Part of a Mommy Makeover
After pregnancy and breast feeding, most new mothers lose breast volume when their breasts deflate back to their original state. The volume loss and changes in skin elasticity can create empty-looking breasts that may hinder a woman’s self-esteem and performance of her motherly duties.
At the Broadway Center for Plastic Surgery, Denver plastic surgeon, Dr. David Broadway can restore the look of your pre-pregnancy breasts and renew your self-confidence.
Mommy Makeovers after Childbirth
If your body has undergone significant changes during pregnancy that have made you feel less attractive or hindered your self-esteem, a mommy makeover may be right for you. A mommy makeover consists of multiple procedures to restore a youthful, attractive appearance. Some mothers opt for liposuction, a tummy tuck and breast enhancement surgery or some combination of these procedures.
Breast Surgery Options
A breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to create fuller, more youthful-looking breasts. Breast augmentation during a mommy makeover will be performed the same as if the procedure was done alone.
An age-defying breast lift, or mastopexy, is often combined with breast augmentation surgery to restore the youthful fullness in your breasts and re-position drooping nipples and stretched areolas.
If your breasts have swelled during pregnancy, and you want smaller, more rounded breasts, a breast reduction can help correct large, sagging breasts. This procedure can also help alleviate pain associated with large breasts, such as improper posture and back pain.
Risks and Benefits of Breast Surgery During a Mommy Makeover
There are several factors to keep in mind if your breast augmentation is performed as part of a mommy makeover. Keep in mind that your surgery will be longer, since a mommy makeover involves more than one procedure. A longer surgery means more time under anesthesia and an increased risk of complications.
On the other hand, breast surgery in conjunction with a mommy makeover means only one surgery and one long exposure to anesthesia as opposed to multiple exposures. A single surgery also means a single recovery, which helps reduce the risk of post-operative complications.
