Both pregnancy and breastfeeding can have a negative effect upon the aesthetics of your body. Physical and hormonal changes can lead to the breasts sagging, as well as a stretched abdomen, leading to loose and hanging abdominal wall skin and muscles. Another unpleasant change is the development of stubborn fat pockets in different local parts of the body, having a decidedly negative impact upon your body contours.
Women who experience unpleasant cosmetic changes to their bodies after multiple pregnancies typically would like to regain their Hourglass shape. Fortunately, a procedure called the Hourglass Mommy Makeover can create this look for you.
What is an Hourglass Mommy Makeover?
An Hourglass Mommy Makeover is a type of cosmetic procedure helpful for those who would like a contoured, hourglass shape after they have been through pregnancy and childbirth. This is actually a combination of treatments referred to as the Hourglass Mommy Makeover.
Some areas that can be addressed by an Hourglass Mommy Makeover include:
- Breast enhancement
- Abdominal enhancement
- Elimination of unwanted fat pockets
- Buttocks enhancement
What is the difference between an Hourglass Mommy Makeover and a standard Mommy Makeover?
The Hourglass Mommy Makeover procedure combines two elements: the wonder breast procedure and the Hourglass procedure. Depending upon your individual treatment goals and current body contours, your surgeon may advise you to undergo certain Hourglass procedures commonly performed under an Hourglass Mommy Makeover. Hourglass Mommy Makeover procedures that are commonly performed include the tummy tuck, liposuction, wonder breast lift or breast augmentation.
The main difference between the two procedures is that the basic Mommy Makeover does not include fat transfer to the hips. In contrast, the Hourglass procedure uses a liposuction procedure to transfer some of your own body fat for widening the hips. The removed fat is taken from the waist area to help create the so-called ‘hourglass’ shape.
As far as breast enhancement, Hourglass Mommy Makeover results are known for being more sustainable. Rather than relying upon your skin to retain your new shape, your skin, muscles, and tissues are used to offer long-term results.
Would I make a good candidate for an Hourglass Mommy Makeover?
The most appropriate candidates for this procedure are women who have gone through multiple pregnancies and do not plan on getting pregnant again. If your body has developed a poor shape because of pregnancies, the Hourglass Mommy Makeover procedure can be very helpful in restoring your youthful body contours, specifically the hourglass shape.
The Hourglass Mommy Makeover may make an appropriate treatment for you if you currently have a stable weight, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations about your results. Your surgeon will be examining your body during your initial consultation and offering their recommendations of the most appropriate set of procedures for your individual goals.
Your plastic surgeon will also assess your health, go over your medical history, and learn of any medications that you’re currently taking so that there are no negative interactions between prescribed medications. Women with diseases like diabetes, hypertension, blood disorders, respiratory issues, or heart problems may be advised to avoid the procedure.
Although an Hourglass Mommy Makeover can definitely enhance your appearance, it cannot transform you into some sort of celebrity. As a result, it is important to maintain realistic expectations regarding your procedure outcome.
Undergoing a consultation for your Hourglass Mommy Makeover surgery is a great chance to share your concerns and ask any questions that you may have of your plastic surgeon. They will determine if you make a good candidate for the procedure and recommend individual procedures so that you can achieve your aesthetic goals.
Once you have received general anesthesia, your surgeon will begin performing your Hourglass Mommy Makeover. They will first perform the wonder breast lift or augmentation. If you have sagging breasts, they can be made more firm and perky with the wonder breast lift. This procedure involves removing some saggy, excess skin from the breasts, as well as excess fat.
If your breast muscles were damaged or separated, they can be tightened and repaired. Your areolas and nipples can also be raised into a better position. Finally, your chest wall muscles, skin, tissues, and ligaments will be used to secure your breasts.
The second part involves performing the tummy tuck procedure, which means that excess, loose abdominal skin will be excised surgically. Your surgeon will also tighten your abdominal wall muscles at this time. They will reconstruct your belly to give you a sexier and more youthful tummy.
Next, your surgeon will perform a fat transfer procedure, involving liposuction to remove stubborn areas of fat from different places around your body for use in contouring certain body areas. The suctioned fat can then be transferred into your hips, leading to wider hips and fuller buttocks. The tummy tuck and Hourglass liposuction will also contribute to making your waist slimmer.
The combination of the Hourglass tummy tuck, wonder breast lift, and Hourglass fat transfer/liposuction can help to dramatically improve the curves of your body, achieving the goals of the Hourglass Mommy Makeover procedure. You will enjoy a dramatic increase in your self-esteem due to your sleeker and more youthful appearance.
How much does an Hourglass Mommy Makeover cost?
Since this procedure is made up of individual procedures that vary from patient to patient, it is impossible to provide a solid answer to this question. However, the cost of the procedure tends to range between $11,000 and $25,000. But it normally comes down to your plastic surgeon and their individual pricing schedule; so inquire about the cost during your initial consultation to determine what your individual procedure would cost.
Hourglass Mommy Makeover Before and After
You should prepare to spend about two weeks of post-procedure downtime. After that, you should be able to resume most of your normal routine if given the go-ahead by your surgeon.
Some things to expect after your Hourglass Mommy Makeover include:
- Sleeker, tighter, hourglass figure
- Flat and firm abdomen
- Improved contours and tighter muscles
- Removal of excess fat deposits
After Your Hourglass Mommy Makeover
Following your procedure, expect to spend around 12 hours in the facility while you are being monitored. Antibiotics and painkillers to prevent infection and to make you as comfortable as possible.
You may be advised to get up and take a slow walk to minimize the risk of blood clotting.
If everything checks out and your health remains stable, you will be sent home to recover. You may need to return for a follow-up appointment in a few days so that your plastic surgeon can check on your progress and recovery.
