WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
The Mommy Makeover is a customized series of surgical procedures tailored to each patient. It is designed to rejuvenate and restore the body after the changes produced by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
CHANGES THAT OCCUR AFTER PREGNANCY
After pregnancy, the skin of the abdomen loses its elasticity and may be saggy with stretch marks. In addition, many times the abdominal muscles that separated in order to accommodate the baby cannot go back to their original position. Many women experience an accumulation of fat deposits in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms.
The breast loses its definition, elasticity, and shape due to weight gain during pregnancy and breastfeeding. All this makes for a challenging situation to return the body back to its previous state, through aesthetic nonsurgical treatments and exercise.

COMPONENTS OF THE MOMMY MAKEOVER
One of the reasons why mommy makeovers are so popular is because there is no fixed set of procedures. Rather, each case is built custom made to fit the unique needs and goals of each patient. The initial approach always begins with the breast and contour of the abdomen, and then adds additional elements according to the needs and aspirations of each patient.
Your mommy makeover could include two or more of the following procedures:
ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK): After pregnancy many women find that their abdomen is permanently altered with saggy skin, excess fat deposits, stretched marks and a rounded contour. The STIMA tummy tuck works to eliminate the accumulation of fat in the abdomen and flanks. It also removes excess skin and restores the firmness of the muscles of the abdomen, not only restoring but improving and embellishing the woman’s silhouette and body contour.
LIPOSUCTION: It is common after pregnancy to find residual deposits of fat in the abdomen, flanks , arms and inner thighs. These fat deposits often do not respond to diet and exercise, giving off an appearance that does not improve no matter how much time you spend in the gym. When this happens Dr. Astudillo will perform a liposuction to remove these unwanted fat deposits, creating a slender and youthful silhouette.
BREAST ENHANCEMENT: After pregnancy and breast feeding , many women lose the shape of their breasts, describing them as deflated and drooping. Dr. Victor Astudillo repositions the breasts to be centered on the chest , while rounding and correcting the changes of the areola and nipple through an intervention called Mastopexy or breast lift. In some patients this technique is combined with the placement of breast implants to correct the loss of volume, breast augmentation replenishes lost breast volume and produces a more prominent bustline . Depending on the particular needs of each patient,these two surgeries can be performed individually or together.
BREAST REDUCTION: For some women, breasts do not return to their normal size due to weight gain and the increase of breast tissue, after breastfeeding. This causes the breasts to be more swollen and enlarged than desired. Dr. Astudillo will add to your mommy makeover a breast reduction to restore smaller breasts in balance with the rest of your body.
ARMS AND THIGH LIFT: After pregnancy many women find that their thighs and arms have loose skin with excess fat, instead of a toned and shaped figure. Dr. Astudillo will permanently remove excess skin and fat and restore a more slender appearance through an arm and/or tigh lift.
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT: Many patients opt for this procedure as one of the elements of their mommy makeover in order to define, improve, restore the contour and give their buttocks and hips a natural and fuller shape. Using a lipofilling technique Dr. Astudillo can accentuate the curves of the female silhouette by transferring your own fat from unwanted areas. The gluteal augmentation with infiltration of own fat is a new technique that offers natural and aesthetic results to those patients who want to improve the shape and increase the projection and the volume of their buttocks without the placement of implants.
