You’ve probably heard of mommy makeovers, which address areas of the body most affected by pregnancy by combining surgical procedures including breast augmentation, tummy tuck surgery, and liposuction. Our Albany patients are often surprised to learn that mommy makeovers don’t just have to be about cosmetic surgery; non-surgical procedures can complement or take the place of surgery for custom results.
CoolSculpting® is a popular option for women who want a non-surgical solution for stubborn pockets of fat around the waist and midsection. This is the perfect accompaniment to a breast enhancement procedure, and a trained professional can determine how many CoolSculpting sessions are needed to achieve a person’s cosmetic goals.
Customizing a mommy makeover isn’t just about incorporating nonsurgical treatments. I often combine breast enhancement procedures such as breast lift and breast augmentation to address multiple concerns. Also, it’s important to understand that procedures such as liposuction and tummy tuck surgery aren’t performed using the same methods for every patient. These procedures are tailored to a patient’s exact body type, which means the extent of surgery varies from person to person.
You’ve probably also heard of the importance of choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for cosmetic treatments. I can’t stress enough how important this is for patients considering multiple procedures. Finding a qualified plastic surgeon is crucial to creating a custom, safe treatment plan.
