About the Mommy Makeover
Las Vegas, NV plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa regularly works with women who wish to have their pre-pregnancy body back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it often will change the tightness and shape of the body that cannot be reversed with exercise and weight loss alone. With the help of Platinum Plastic Surgery, it is achievable to reclaim a slimmer, smooth physique with the assistance of the mommy makeover performed at Platinum Plastic Surgery. Mommy makeover is an all-encompassing term for several body contouring procedures, including to lift and fill the breasts to a more youthful appearance and to tighten the torso and underlying muscles. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape the stomach and breasts, as well as other areas affected by pregnancy — virtually any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc., can be repaired.
Ideal candidates for body contouring and mommy makeover are those who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, and have tried to get a slimmer look through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgical intervention is recommended to regain their pre-pregnancy figure. If you are past childbearing and are unhappy with the imperfections remaining on your body, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could help you. The overall goal of Dr. Costa is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to living life without additional concern.

The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring surgery, tailored for each woman by plastic surgeon Dr. Costa based on the areas of concern to be corrected. A variety of procedures can be paired together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 5 hours depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital might be necessary. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical skin procedures, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface issues.
What to Expect
This cosmetic body contouring procedure is categorized as an invasive process and can surgically cover a large portion of the body. Once leaving the hospital, you will begin to rest and recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply. The recovery period is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first week or so, and a step-by-step, at-home protocol will be required to help the incisions heal properly. Most patients find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within 2 – 3 weeks. Light exercise can be started at three weeks, and most patients are released to full activity at six weeks. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Platinum Plastic Surgery can be an amazing journey for women, allowing them to love the way they look and feel once again.
