We have gotten a ton of questions about what exactly constitutes a “mommy makeover.” So we sat down and spoke with Cheryl who is one of Dr. Khanna’s coordinators at our cosmetic surgery clinic. Cheryl is often the first person that patients will speak with when they are considering having surgery. It also doesn’t hurt that she is a yummy mummy herself! We consider Cheryl to be our very own resident blond bombshell with a heart of gold, who you’ll see here with Laura, Katie and Ashleigh who are also members of our ICLS family.*I’m sure she’ll be blushing at this point in reading the blog!*
Having a female plastic surgeon means that we see many patients about concerns that most moms have with their body after having their beautiful babies. So she helped us set the record straight for all you yummy mummies out there!
A mommy makeover is a series of surgeries designed for women who are concerned that their children did not leave their bodies exactly how they found them. While we know that having our kids was well worth some droopiness here, an extra bulge or two there; but a mommy makeover is designed to get patients closer to their pre-baby bodies. Typically, these surgeries include some combination of breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty or non-surgical fat removal. This is definitely an individualized procedure and Dr. Khanna takes the time to sit down and determine what treatment or series of treatments is going to help you to reach your goal.
