Mommy Makeover

How can you know if you’re the right weight for a mommy makeover in Miami? This popular body sculpting procedure is not designed as a weight loss tool, but to recontour and improve the body you have. Before undergoing any cosmetic surgery, it’s ideal to be at a stable, healthy BMI that you can maintain afterward.

A mommy makeover typically involves combined cosmetic surgeries for the tummy, the breasts and potentially other areas too. The combinations are entirely customizable and may also include liposuction, breast implants, labia rejuvenation and more.

If you think your weight isn’t where it needs to be yet, the question is, how much weight do you need to lose? We recommend an in-person consultation with Dr. Phillip Craft. He’ll listen to your goals, examine you and offer expert advice. In the meantime, consider the following:

Tummy tuck with mommy makeover in Miami

It’s perhaps most significant to plan losing excess fat as it relates to abdominoplasty. Obesity can raise certain risks during surgery. However, from an aesthetic point of view, good tummy tuck results depend on the ability to remove excess skin and tighten up abdominal muscles. This procedure works best for those who have lost weight or carried pregnancies which left them with lax, sagging belly skin.

The plastic surgeon trims away excess, reconstructs the belly button and pulls abdominal muscles tightly together again for a slim waist. If you carry much intraabdominal belly fat, you won’t be able to see the improvement you want. Liposuction can be done to help contour problem spots, but it does not enter behind the abdominal wall to remove the deep, visceral fat that causes bulging tummies.

Weight loss before a breast enhancement

It’s also a good idea to lose the extra weight before undergoing a breast lift or reduction surgery. Most women have a significant amount of fatty tissue in their breasts which shrinks visibly as they shed pounds. This leaves skin sagging and nipples in a lower position. Luckily, it’s these changes that a breast lift is designed to improve; however, if you lose the weight after your surgery, you may lose some results too.
