You may have heard or read this catch-all phrase, and you may not know exactly what it means. Mommy Makeover is a set of various custom-tailored Aesthetic Surgery procedures, aimed to return to your body the appearance it had before you become a mother. It is a combination of plastic surgery techniques with which you can return the shape to your waist, remove the belly, eliminate sagging skin from the abdomen, remove excess fat from the flanks, hips, thighs, and even rejuvenate your genital area.
The latter is one of the parts of the body that is the most important for women, either because of its aesthetic modification during pregnancy and childbirth or, above all, because of problems of functionality after a delivery.

When can you have a Mommy Makeover done?
Mommy Makeover can be performed six months after a delivery. It is advisable to lose the weight you gained during the pregnancy.
What are the components of Mommy Makeover?
It consists of a series of interventions that are performed after pregnancy. The following are the most common:
Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck
The elasticity of the skin reaches its maximum level during pregnancy, but it does not always return to its initial state. Excess residual skin in abdomen, distended muscles, accumulated fat, and stretch marks are problems that abdominoplasty treats.
To achieve an optimal result at the Instituto Perez de la Romana, we combine the abdominoplasty with the latest techniques of liposuction HD Vaser Lipo, which is perfect to remodel the abdominal area completely, getting a flat belly, improving the appearance of stretch marks and defining the waist, hips and back.
High Definition Liposuction Vaser Lipo
It is a technique that reshapes the body contour by eliminating fat and defining the waist, hips, back, flanks and abdomen, thus achieving a general beautification of the whole silhouette. The liposculpture Vaser Lipo also allows to transfer a part of the fat that has been removed to other areas that we want to enhance, such as buttocks.
We say that the treatment is custom-talored, because in some cases only liposuction is enough, but in most cases it will be necessary to combine abdominoplasty with liposuction and buttocks fatgraft.
Mammoplasty: one of the top specialties at the Instituto Pérez de la Romana is a breast surgery. Another possible consequence of a pregnancy and breastfeeding is that the breast loses its firmness and shape, becoming sagging and emplty. To sort it out we perform different techniques that manage to improve the shape, volume, projection and symmetry of the breast achieving a natural result in a harmony with the rest of the body.
To achieve this, we combine personalized techniques. In some cases it will be indicated to elevate the mammary gland only and in other cases, it will be necessary to use implants and reduce the areola, repositioning the nipple. With this procedure we manage to correct the sagging breast, remove excess skin, recover the firmness, leaving a nice and harmonious breast.
The important thing about this intervention is that in a single intervention all body silhouette is corrected.
In our Female Intimate Surgery Unit we treat alterations in the intimate area, that may appear with the passage of time or after pregnancy and delivery, these can produce discomfort, lack of sexual satisfaction, urine loss, etc.
What are the solutions to recover the intimate area after a childbirth?
Labioplasty, the most common procedure that consists of the correction of the protruding labia minor or labia major, that cause hygiene problems, infections and discomfort, in addition to discomfort when having sex.
Vaginoplasty or vaginal narrowing is also very common procedure to solve the vaginal hyperlaxity that remains after a delivery and causes sexual dissatisfaction, among other problems. Laser treatment reduces the vagina muscle by improving the tone and muscle elasticity.
Another technique of vaginal rejuvenation surgery is perineoplasty, which returns the elasticity and original function to the perineum and corrects its muscles. Perineoplasty is ideal in situations when physiotherapy is not capable to correct the pelvic floor.
Ultimately, the final goal is to achieve a vaginal rejuvenation so that your genitals look like they did before a childbirth and you could resume your sexual relations with complete satisfaction and normality.
Now all these changes are much more easier to achieve, thanks to the state of art Plastic Surgery techniques. That is why “Mommy Makeover” is so popular and we recommend it to young and middle-aged mothers.
