Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. Pregnancy and nursing can cause significant changes to a woman’s breasts, leaving them deflated or sagging. The breasts may swell and then shrink after breastfeeding 
is complete. They might also lose elasticity and appear droopy. Breast augmentation addresses these issues by using saline, silicone, or “gummy bear” implants to add volume and lift the breasts. Another approach 
is to transfer fat from the patient’s own body to achieve more natural results. When combined with other procedures, breast augmentation can restore 
a woman’s pre-pregnancy body contours and rejuvenate her appearance.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. During this procedure, the nipple and areola are repositioned to a more youthful height. The goal of a breast lift is to remove loose skin and create a rounder, perkier, and better-proportioned breast shape. It can rejuvenate sagging breasts affected by weight loss, pregnancy, gravity, and aging.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, flattens the belly by removing excess skin and tightening muscles. During a tummy tuck, an incision is made below the bikini line to remove much of the unwanted tissue and stretch marks to make the abdomen more fit. The belly button is surgically repositioned if necessary. A tummy tuck is performed as a component of a mommy makeover to help restore a woman’s figure after pregnancy and childbirth, which can stretch the abdomen and separate muscles. This surgery creates a flatter, firmer, and more toned abdominal contour.
Liposuction is also a crucial mommy makeover procedure. It involves using a cannula (thin tube) connected to a vacuum device to remove excess fat deposits from specific body areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and flanks. During liposuction, small incisions are made in the skin, and the cannula is inserted through these openings to target stubborn fat pockets that have not responded to diet and exercise. The fat cells are then suctioned out, which results in a more contoured appearance. Liposuction is often combined with a tummy tuck, breast lift, and augmentation to help women regain a more youthful body contour.

Brazilian butt lift has become a popular procedure for patients looking to restore their pre-pregnancy shape. During childbearing, it is common for women to lose volume in the buttocks area. A Brazilian butt lift uses the patient’s own fat, harvested from areas like the flanks, abdomen, or lower back, to plump and lift the buttocks. The transferred fat cells help to create more projection and contour.

Labiaplasty is an operation that reduces and reshapes the labia minora (inner vaginal lips). It is performed to reduce discomfort caused by elongated lips. Women with this condition often experience pain during physical activities, sexual intercourse, or when wearing tight clothing. Labiaplasty can enhance both aesthetic appearance and comfort. Carried out under general or local anesthesia, this surgery involves trimming excess tissue and carefully suturing the area to achieve a natural look.

Dr. LaBarbera aims to help each woman get into the best possible shape after pregnancy. He provides insightful guidance on all mommy makeover procedures to make the patient fully informed about the available options.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Initial recovery after this procedure usually lasts several weeks. Patients are advised to take at least 7-14 days off work and avoid strenuous activity for a month after the plastic surgery. Swelling and mild bruising are common during this period, so compression garments are needed to reduce symptoms. Pain medication is typically prescribed for the first week to manage post-surgical discomfort. Patients also need assistance standing up, sitting down, and moving around while restrictions are in place. For proper healing, it is important to follow all post-operative care instructions from our plastic surgeon.
