Combining Your Mommy Makeover with a Brazilian Butt Lift
If you have had children, you may have noticed that your body has not returned to its pre-pregnancy form. Some women may have difficulty slimming or toning a certain area of the body, or they may have noticed a loss of fat on other areas of the body, such as the breasts or buttocks. At Mesna Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gregory Mesna offers mommy makeover procedures to contour the body after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Some women wish to undergo a mommy makeover and BBL, or Brazilian butt lift, at our Minneapolis, MN practice. If women are already undergoing liposuction as part of their mommy makeover plan, the harvested fat can be injected into the buttocks to add more shape to the rear. Read on to learn more about combining your mommy makeover with the Brazilian butt lift procedure.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
A mommy makeover typically targets the breasts and tummy after pregnancy. However, any area of the body that has changed in response to pregnancy can be recontoured and tightened as part of your unique mommy makeover plan. Dr. Mesna can remove fat from specific areas of the body via the liposuction procedure, and he can remove excess skin during a skin tightening procedure such as tummy tuck or thigh lift. If you are unhappy with the appearance of the breasts after pregnancy or breastfeeding, they can be augmented with implants, lifted, or reduced in size.
Combining Liposuction and a Brazilian Butt Lift
If you wish to remove excess fat as part of your mommy makeover plan, you may be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. However, you must have enough fat in the treated area for re-injection into the buttocks. Dr. Mesna will determine if there is enough fat for the Brazilian butt lift procedure during your pre-surgical consultation.
Excess fat may be harvested from the stomach, thighs, hips, or back. The fat is then purified, and any viable fat tissue can be re-injected into the buttocks. Dr. Mesna will use microinjections that are administered at specific depths and locations to produce the most natural appearance and feel.
Will You Required Two-stage Surgery?
If you wish to undergo several procedures as part of your mommy makeover plan, Dr. Mesna may recommend that your surgeries be performed in two stages. This is because you will need to stay off the buttocks for at least two weeks after surgery. During this time, patients must avoid sitting or lying on their backs. Instead, patients can rest of their side or stomach.
However, patients that have undergone tummy tuck or breast surgery experience discomfort when lying on the stomach. For this reason, if you wish to undergo tummy tuck or breast surgery as part of your mommy makeover plan, we may recommend that you undergo these procedures during a separate, second surgical appointment.
If you are interested in undergoing a mommy makeover and BBL, contact Mesna Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mesna. He can examine your post-pregnancy body and discuss your goals to determine which procedures are right for you.
