Patient Study

Mini Mommy Makeover

Written by:
Beverly Hills, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

The below example is a typical case of a patient who presents for a mini mommy makeover. She has had a cesarian section, has involutional upper pole atrophy, loss of upper pole fullness of her breasts, has lipodystrophy adiposity of the iliac crest rolls, and rectus diastasis. Her desire is to improve the fullness of her breasts. She has Grade I ptosis and will do well with straight augmentation mammoplasty procedure without the need for a breast lift, high profile saline implants as well as a mini abdominoplasty with tightening of and plication of the rectus sheath from the umbilicus to the suprapubic region as well as lipo-sculpting from the lower flank down to the iliac crest roll regions.

Post-Op Front View Mini Mommy Makeover

On frontal view, please note the flattening of the lower abdominal area. Notice the natural projection of her breasts using the high profile saline implants in the dual plane. In the oblique you will notice the hips have been smoothed down beautifully with a much more elegant contour, less bulkiness above the jean line and a smoothening of the lower abdominal wall. The mini mommy makeovers can be performed with implant lifts concurrently with mini abdominoplasties and lipo-sculpting of the hips as well as the inner and outer thighs. Patients who have mini abdominoplasties normally have redundant skin of the lower abdominal wall; however, have good tissue and good skin tightening of the abdominal area and hypogastrium, not requiring a full extensive abdominoplasty.

We look forward to taking care of you for your mommy makeovers after you have finished having your children and finished breast feeding.
