Becoming a mother is an amazing, life-changing event. But for most moms, it’s also a body-changing event.
Those body changes feel insignificant when welcoming a new life into the world. However, when lifestyle adjustments like exercise and a healthy diet don’t restore your pre-baby body after a while, you may consider a mommy makeover.
Premier Liposuction in Las Vegas, NV, knows that you shouldn’t stop loving how you look when you become a mother. Our surgical team specializes in giving our patients the sculpted, shapelier bodies they deserve.
While many plastic surgeons provide mommy makeovers, Premier Liposuction offers mommy makeovers with fat transfer and our Renuvion skin tightening treatments so that you achieve optimal results with one procedure.
Undergoing a mommy makeover can be a big decision, and knowing your options is essential. The Premier Mommy Makeover uses different methods to achieve the same goals as a regular mommy makeover.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is considered an all-in-one procedure to augment the body after pregnancy. A typical mommy makeover includes breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. The procedure intends to address the body areas most impacted by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
How Is a Premier Mommy Makeover Different?
At Premier Liposuction, our Premier Mommy Makeover addresses the same areas of concern but with a minimally invasive procedure that offers a shorter recovery time.
The Premier Mommy Makeover includes multiple sites of Vaser liposuction, Renuvion skin tightening, and a fat transfer to the breasts or buttocks.
Vaser liposuction is a form of liposuction that’s less invasive, based on the way fat cells are broken up. In traditional liposuction, the surgeon inserts a cannula (tube) into the deep fat layer. The cannula moves back and forth, breaking the fat away from the skin tissues before the fat is vacuumed out of the body.
In Vaser liposuction, a probe transmits ultrasound energy to break up unwanted fat. The probe’s vibration loosens fat cells and emulsifies them with an injected saline solution. The liquefied fat is then suctioned out, leaving the remaining tissues with significantly less damage and requiring less recovery time than traditional liposuction.
Our Premier Mommy Makeover includes Vaser liposuction in the upper and lower abdomen, the back and the hip rolls, flanks, or love handles.
Renuvion Skin Tightening
Renuvion is a skin tightening treatment that inserts helium gas and electrical energy under the skin to heat and cool the skin at once, creating a tightening effect.
Renuvion’s dual thermal treatment converts helium into cold atmospheric plasma, then combines the plasma with radiofrequency energy. The Renuvion skin tightening device heats and immediately cools the targeted skin, tightening it without damaging the tissue and delivering up to 40% retraction of excess skin.
When combined with the Vaser liposuction procedure, patients see dramatic results. Renuvion skin tightening in the upper and lower abdomen is part of the Premier Mommy Makeover.
As part of the Premier Mommy Makeover, patients can include a fat transfer to the breasts or buttocks.
In a fat transfer, the team at Premier Liposuction uses the fat extracted from the Vaser liposuction treatment, then processes and injects the fat into preferred areas of the body. For example, in breast augmentation, fat injections into the breasts offer a subtle increase in size and produce natural-looking results.
A fat transfer to the buttocks is also called a “Brazilian butt lift.” In this procedure, the fat transfer improves the proportions of the lower body, reshaping the buttocks and the surrounding areas.
Is Recovery from a Premier Mommy Makeover Different?
Yes. A Premier Mommy Makeover is a minimally invasive version of a traditional mommy makeover, so the recovery time is significantly different.
In a traditional mommy makeover, the recovery time ranges from one to four weeks. However, it’s recommended that patients have at least one week of help caring for children or going about everyday activities.
Most patients need two to four weeks off work post-surgery if they work a desk job and must wait a month or longer before resuming heavy lifting.
In contrast, a Premier Mommy Makeover requires about 48 hours of recovery time before you can return to work or school. Patients can resume light to moderate exercise about a week after their procedure and will see their initial swelling subside at around two weeks.
Both types of mommy makeovers require using a compression garment to optimize results and reduce swelling. After a Premier Mommy Makeover, patients can expect to see full results about three to four months after their procedure. In a traditional mommy makeover, full results can take six months to a year.
How Does Scarring Differ in a Premier Mommy Makeover?
One of the most significant benefits of a Premier Mommy Makeover is the lack of scarring. Since all of the procedures involved use tiny incisions or none at all, patients only see minimal, if any, scarring.
In a traditional mommy makeover, the procedures result in extensive scarring. For example, a tummy tuck usually results in a scar that runs hip-to-hip or longer to cut out extra skin and repair muscles. Similarly, scarring from a breast augmentation often runs under the natural curve of the breast, but the location can vary.
A skilled plastic surgeon will work to hide the scars from a mommy makeover, so they sit below the underwear line on the stomach and under the breast curve in augmentation, but both procedures leave extensive scars.
