The mommy makeover is a popular suite of procedures that sculpt and contour the body. However, just because “mommy” is in the name, it doesn’t mean all patients have to be mothers. Different women (and men) from all walks of life can benefit from the procedure’s toning and trimming. Mommy makeover surgeries work for many different Washington, DC, patients who want to lift, tone, or shape many different areas of their bodies at once. However, some may benefit more than others from this particular surgery.
What is a mommy makeover? What procedures are included?
A mommy makeover isn’t a single treatment. Rather, it’s a collection of different popular procedures that can be mixed and matched together for more comprehensive results. Common options include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Some women also like to add vaginal rejuvenation treatments that tighten vaginal tissue affected by childbirth, age, or significant weight loss.
When used together, these procedures flatten the midsection, lift breasts, and contour unwanted curves. The end result is more flattering and noticeable than any single procedure would be.
Who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
The best mommy makeover candidates are those who want to contour multiple areas of their bodies. After all, many women struggle with more than one issue after pregnancy—such as sagging breasts and unwanted belly rolls —and wish to fix both problems at the same time. A mommy makeover can also benefit anyone who has experienced significant body changes. If you have lost or gained a large amount of weight and now have loose skin or unwanted fat, a mommy makeover could be for you.
Are mommy makeovers just for women? What is a “daddy do-over?”
Mothers aren’t the only people whose bodies change over time. Both men and women benefit from body contouring. The “Daddy Do-Over” is a trendy name given to the combination of procedures that male patients choose from. For men, tummy tuck and liposuction are often included to tone the midsection and remove belly fat. And for facial rejuvenation, BOTOX® and dermal fillers can also be used, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
More men than ever are now considering cosmetic treatments. The Aesthetic Society reported a 67% increase in male patients seeking cosmetic procedures from 2010 to 2016, and that number continues to grow.
