Mommy Makeover in the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs Area
We understand that the physical changes post-pregnancy brings can have lasting negative effects on a woman’s quality of life. Most women find it difficult, if not impossible to return to their pre-pregnancy shape and health. Our Mommy Makeover program consists of a combination of procedures that help women return to their pre-mommy bodies and get that much needed “Reset”.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is not a single procedure, but rather a customized cosmetic treatment program that involves different procedures designed to target the different effects of post-pregnancy, such as, sagging or abnormally shaped breasts, excessive weight gain, and damaged unsightly skin.
Different women have different reactions to pregnancy, so the procedures included in a Mommy Makeover will vary. Most procedures include, liposuction, tummy tuck and a breast enhancement procedure such as a breast augmentation or breast reduction with a breast lift. Most recently, it’s been more popular to add thigh and butt lift and skin rejuvenation procedures.
Each Mommy Makeover treatment program will be customized to each patient. The procedures chosen will target areas to bring her to the pre-mommy state or better. Weight gained will be removed, sagging deformed breasts will be corrected, flabby skin will be toned and stretch marks will be reduced. All of these physical changes bring back a woman’s self-confidence and get her feeling back to herself.
Since a Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures, patients should expect to undergo a recovery period. As with any cosmetic procedure, the recovery period will vary by patient. During the consultation, Dr. Sofonio will discuss the recovery process and give the most accurate and relevant information on what each patient should expect.
