Breast Augmentation as Part of Your Mommy Makeover  

Breast Augmentation as Part of Your Mommy Makeover

Just like there is no one-size-fits all mom, there are no one-size-fits-all mommy makeovers. Nevertheless, one of the most popular mommy-makeover procedures our San Antonio board certified plastic surgeon performs each year are breast augmentations. And again, while no two mommy makeover breast augmentations are the same, breast augmentations are still the most popular procedure requested by moms. Hard-working moms usually come to Dr. Baumholtz with similar body image complaints:

  • Saggy, exhausted-looking breasts
  • Excess flab around the tummy and waist
  • Stubborn fat deposits on hips, back, arms, etc. that just won’t respond to diet and exercise

There are many other concerns moms talk with us about, but those are the most common. Not to put to fine a point on it, but moms want their bodies back—and they more than deserve it. And while diet and exercise are essential to achieving this ultimate goal, sometimes mother nature isn’t as obliging as we wish she could be in regards to body shape, particularly with post-pregnancy and post-breastfeeding breasts. This is where breast augmentation as part of a mommy makeover can help moms reclaim their bodies and feel more confident and self-assured.

During a mommy makeover in San Antonio, Dr. Baumholtz can women address each body image concern in a personally-tailored way to fit their lifestyle and desired goals. He individually consults with each mom who comes in for help regaining body image confidence to address her needs individually. But without question, the breast augmentation is an absolute essential that most women want to address through plastic surgery. A mommy makeover may include one or more of the following procedures in varying combinations depending on what you need and desire:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Butt lift or augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

After discussing your needs with Dr. Baumholtz and going through a complete consultation, you can come to a conclusion on the collection of mommy makeover procedures that would best benefit your needs and desires. Combining procedures at the same time is especially helpful for busy moms because many of these procedures can be done more cost effectively at once than several procedures over a longer period of time. This is why mommy makeovers are becoming so popular.

What You Need to Know about Your Mommy Makeover Breast Augmentation

The first step in returning your post-baby breasts to your pre-baby breasts, or something even better, is to think about what your ultimate goal is in a breast augmentation. Breast augmentation can accomplish the following goals:

1. Restore saggy post-pregnancy breasts to fuller, firmer breasts

During pregnancy, women experience changes like breast growth as their bodies prepare for breastfeeding. During breastfeeding, the breasts swell and the skin stretches. After breastfeeding for several months, and after weaning, the size and shape of the breasts may change significantly. Instead of projecting outward as they did before, breasts may sag downward as the tissue changes, even appearing flatter. So many changes can happen to a woman’s breasts during pregnancy and breastfeeding! Depending on what combination of changes you experience, these can dent your self-esteem and body image at a time where confidence is critical.

To improve fullness, shape and projection of the breasts, San Antonio’s board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Baumholtz breast augmentation with saline or silicone breast implants, sometimes providing additional shaping with fat transfer from other areas that may be included in the mommy makeover.  Make sure to do your research on different breast implants so you can discuss your options with Dr. Baumholtz during consultation.

2. Improve the symmetry of breasts (so both are the same size and shape)

Sometimes the changes in the breast tissue during pregnancy and breastfeeding are unequal, leaving one breast larger or smaller than the other. Sometimes the nipples even point different directions. These are very common concerns women express when coming in to discuss a mommy makeover. By using our VECTRA 3D imaging system, we can combine the correct sizing for breast augmentation implants, as well as any other changes needed to make breast shape, size and projection the same for each breast so that the end result is ideal symmetry.

3. Increase breast size

Post-breastfeeding breasts can shrink considerably, and many women miss even the breast size they used to have, not to mention those women who would like to have go up a cup size from their pre-mommy bodies. Again, the goal is balance in any augmentation. Your board-certified plastic surgeon in San Antonio will give you a full evaluation, again using the VECTRA 3D imaging system, and can recommend a size increase that will help balance your body while giving you the body image boost you are looking for.

For women who experience other changes that make their breasts larger and more difficult to manage than they would like after pregnancy and breastfeeding, Dr. Dr. Baumholtz can also perform expert breast reduction surgery to improve body balance and restore much-needed confidence.

Breast Augmentation and/or Breast Lift

One point of confusion many people have over breast augmentation as part of a mommy makeover is the difference between breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. Some women do well with just one, while some women would benefit with both surgeries.

A breast augmentation surgery is primarily meant to help improve fullness, symmetry, projection and size. It cannot, however, lift severely drooping or sagging breasts. For that, a breast lift is needed, and can also be part of your mommy makeover if you desire.

Breast lift surgery removed excess sagging skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to pull sagging breasts up into a better, higher, more youthful profile.

Mommy Makeover Breast Augmentation – Important Considerations

As essential as educating yourself about mommy makeover procedures including breast augmentation is choosing an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon in San Antonio. Only a board-certified mommy makeover surgeon is qualified and understands all of the aspects necessary to minimize surgical risks and help you achieve your desired results.

Dr. Baumholtz is a board certified plastic surgeon with the expertise and experience qualifying him to do excellent mommy makeovers. He is an active member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeon (ASPS), and frequently lectures, consults and teaches other physicians in plastic surgery matters.
