Choose the best mommy makeover for you.
There are 3 major variations of the mommy makeover we offer to our Arizona plastic surgery patients at the Guerra Plastic Surgery Center including:
A mommy makeover at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center is performed in one stage and consists of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and a breast enhancement with breast implants and breast lift (mastopexy). A mommy makeover can also include a tummy tuck with a breast reduction. Some patients chose to split their surgery into two operations. A true mommy makeover, however, occurs when all the surgery is completed in one stage. Each mommy makeover surgery is unique and is tailored to your individual needs.
Tummy Tuck +
The most popular mommy makeover procedure at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center is the tummy tuck wtih breast augmentation. After child birth, patients consider a mommy makeover to help restore their body. Dr. Aldo Guerra uses his advanced techniques including a very-low tummy tuck incision, the latest silicone breast implants and saline breast implants and more.

When you are ready to rejuvenate your body.
Mommy makeovers are very popular in our practice because patients are very impressed with Dr. Aldo Guerra and his advanced techniques. With pregnancy, We all know the changes that can occur on the body. The body of a woman who has been through pregnancy is never the same. Just about everyone who has given birth develops the same problem areas: the breasts, the tummy, and the fat pads. Many women cannot recognize themselves and others feel like their body no longer belongs to them. Unfortunately, the body does not easily snap back into shape. As women attempt to regain their previous lifestyle, they find this to be a significant challenge.

Get back to you.
There is no doubt that having a child is one of the most fulfilling experiences a woman can have in life. Some women, however, feel self-conscious about the effects of that can happen after pregnancy. Pregnancy takes its toll on a mother’s body, especially the breasts and tummy area. Stretching of the stomach muscles and tummy skin is normal with pregnancy and is variable depending on each individual. The breasts are sometimes affected by increasing elasticity and softness. Areas like the hips, back and thighs may accumulate fat that may not dissipate completely after pregnancy.

Learn what happens to your tummy.
Typically, the tummy area changes the most with pregnancy. The combination of growing uterus and pregnancy-related hormones allows you to stretch and increase the abdominal girth. These changes are normal and serve to allow the abdominal wall muscles to stretch allowing your baby to grow comfortably. This phenomenon typically creates a separation of the abdominal muscles, called rectus diastasis, in order to accommodate your baby. The skin of the tummy also stretches and becomes more elastic under the same influences, and may develop stretchmarks. In some women, the abdominal tissues affected return to their pre-pregnancy state, but most do not. Many women have loose, sagging skin, and disfiguring stretch marks, with a bulging abdominal wall to varying degrees post pregnancy. If a C-section was performed, the hanging skin may be quite pronounced. Diet and exercise typically do not help with these changes, which are often permanent, and cannot be reversed without cosmetic plastic surgery.
Learn how your body stores fat after pregnancy.
Weight gain is an expected outcome of pregnancy. Not all women are able to lose the weight they gained during pregnancy. Some need a little help via liposuction or lipo to erase the evidence of pregnancy. With liposuction many of these fat pads are reduced. Normal hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy create permanent effects on the ability of the body to store localized fatty deposits on the hips, back, tummy, love-handles, buttocks and thighs. Depending on how much weight you gained, you may continue to store sizeable fat pockets in undesirable areas. The result from this weight gain may never go completely away and the fat pads can remain long after the birth of your child.
Body contouring with liposuction.
Liposuction is recommended for these stubborn fat pockets. Liposuction is the removal of fat from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow tube, called a cannula, with the assistance of a vacuum device. Liposuction can be performed under general, IV sedation, and/or local (tumescent) anesthesia. Dr. Aldo Guerra prefers to use a modified version of tumescent liposuction which combines tumescent anesthesia and add some systemic anesthesia (general or IV sedation), administered by an anesthesiologist, to increase your comfort and make your experience better. The modified tumescent Scottsdale liposuction refers to a technique that uses large volumes of dilute local anesthetic medication and adrenaline, injected into the targeted fat pads until we see the tissue swollen and firm. This technique allows for safe, maximal fat removal with minimal blood loss.
