Mommy Makeover Washington DC

Pregnancy and childbirth can cause significant alterations to a woman’s body causing many Washington D.C. mommy makeover patients to feel insecure over multiple aspects of their figure. This is why a mommy makeover procedure targets both the stomach and the breasts to help women restore their pre-pregnancy figure and confidence.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover procedure combines more than one surgery to restore a woman’s body after pregnancy. This is why Dr. Tattelbaum refers to the surgery as ‘postpartum restoration’ as the majority of patients wish to restore the specific areas of their body that were impacted by pregnancy or breastfeeding. A mommy makeover procedure typically includes a breast surgery and a tummy tuck procedure:

Breast Surgery – typically involves a breast augmentation, breast lift or in some cases a breast reduction.

Tummy Tuck – Dr. Tattelbaum performs a range of tummy tuck procedures including full, mini and fleur-de-lis tummy tucks. During your consultation, Dr. Tattelbaum will be able to advise you on the most suitable technique depending on how lose the abdominal skin is after pregnancy. 

Who is a Suitable Candidate?

Every patient has different concerns and needs which is why Dr. Tattelbaum understands the importance of ensuring each patient is suitable for the procedure they wish to undertake. 

Women who wish to undergo a mommy makeover procedure will have ideally finished bearing children. Mommy makeover patients should also have given birth at least 3 to 6 months earlier to ensure that the patient can safely undergo surgery. Additionally, Dr. Tattelbaum explains that this gives patients time to lose any pregnancy weight and allow for the uterus to return to its normal size. 

To be suitable for the majority of cosmetic procedures it is important that the patient is healthy as this reduces the chance of post-procedure risks occurring and helps a patient to recover well after their procedure. Suitable candidates for the procedure will also be those who are close to their ideal weight, typically being within 30% of your ideal body weight or around 10 pounds from your goal weight is recommended. Even if liposuction and a tummy tuck are being performed as part of the procedure, these surgeries are not designed for weight loss but to help contour the patient’s figure. Additionally, it reduces the likelihood of complications following the procedure and also allows for the best results. 

    What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

    There are many potential benefits that our Washington D.C. mommy makeover patients can experience from having undergone their procedure. The procedure is customizable and each patient is able to resolve specific concerns across multiple areas of their body. This is one of the reasons why previous mommy makeover patients have rated the procedure a 95% worth-it rating on RealSelf. Further potential benefits of undergoing a mommy makeover procedure include:

    • Can treat a range of concerns in one procedure
    • Can help to restore your figure following pregnancy 
    • Increased confidence 
    • Addresses concerns over a patient’s breasts and abdomen
    • Can have long-term or even permanent results 

    Mommy Makeover Surgery

    The surgery itself will completely depend on the individual procedures being performed and the specific surgical technique for that procedure. Generally, tummy tuck procedures are performed by creating an incision line along the bottom of the abdomen so that excess skin can be removed and the abdominal muscles can be tightened. 

    Breast Implant surgeries can be performed by creating an incision line around the areola, under the breast or even in the armpit or the abdomen. Dr. Tattelbaum favors an incision under the fold of the breast as it tends to be the most predictable. Dr. Tattelbaum will show you the exact incision location during your consultation to ensure you are comfortable with both the procedure’s technique and the resulting scar lines. After the incisions have been created an implant can be inserted. The incision site will then be closed with stitches and the breasts tend to be covered with gauze for the first few days of your recovery. 

    Breast reduction and Breast lift surgeries have larger incisions that allow removal of extra skin and breast tissue as needed. Implants can be placed through these incisions as well. The incision site will then be closed with hidden  stitches and the breasts tend to be covered with gauze for the first few days of your recovery. 

    Recovering from the different surgeries will also include individual aftercare instructions, recovery garments and varying lengths of time to heal. Dr. Tattelbaum will walk you through the recovery process and will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding aftercare.

    Mommy Makeover Before and After

    Before and after images of a mommy makeover
    This post partum woman of two children lost the volume of her breasts after breastfeeding. The abdominal wall relaxed and the skin of the abdomen became loose. She underwent breast augmentation and full tummy tuck surgery with tightening of the abdominal muscles. The hips were contoured through power-assisted liposuction. In this particular case, the breast implants were placed through the tummy tuck incision which is under the underwear line.
    This post partum woman had a breast lift and tummy tuck as part of her mommy makeover.
