Choose From Our Experienced Mommy Makeover Surgeons in Iowa:
Did you know that non-plastic surgeons can advertise and perform plastic surgery? All plastic surgeons are cosmetic surgeons but not all cosmetic surgeons are plastic surgeons. Make sure you only find & choose a surgeon is accredited and board certified.
Board-certified plastic surgeons can also become members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), an organization representing over 6,000 board-certified plastic surgeons that have at least five years of surgical training and a minimum of two years specifically in plastic surgery.
Mommy makeover surgery is a combination procedure in which 2 or more cosmetic surgery procedures are performed as a means to revitalize the natural contours of your body. It’s one of the most popular options as it corrects the breasts & abdomen damage from pregnancy.
It may include breast augmentation, tummy tuck or liposuction:
- To boost the shape and volume of the breasts, our plastic surgeons can place saline or silicone implants during breast augmentation. An additional option for breast augmentation is autologous fat transfer, a process in which your surgeon removes your own fat, using liposuction, from a fat-yielding body part (such as your abdomen, thighs, or flanks) processes it and then injects it into your breasts.
- A tummy tuck is most commonly performed on patients who have lost significant weight or have recently had a child. It’s designed to improve the shape of the abdomen by removing excess skin, excess fat, and tightening the abdominal wall.
- The most frequent use of liposuction is is to shape or contour areas that are difficult to exercise directly (think love-handles).
It’s typically performed under general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgery center. The best way to learn about mommy makeover surgery is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with a surgeon.
