Mommy Makeover Procedures

Mommy Makeover procedures often involve a combination of aesthetic enhancement options that can be performed in tandem, or over a series of appointments with Dr. Christine Petti. At your initial consultation at her office, Dr. Petti will discuss your goals with you and, together, you will decide which options will be the best to meet your needs. Dr. Petti will explain all aspects of the procedures with you, including details on risks and benefits, and recovery after the procedure.

Here are just some of the options you can choose from to include in a Mommy Makeover:

Smartlipo Triplex Liposuction

Smartlipo Triplex is a minimal-downtime liposuction technique that not only removes pockets of fat from virtually anywhere on the body, but also tightens the skin for a smooth appearance. Smartlipo Triplex uses fiber optic laser technology, which allows for extremely small incisions and virtually invisible scarring after the procedure. Dr. Petti is one of the first plastic surgeons on the West Coast to use this revolutionary method of liposuction.

Breast Lift

After pregnancy, many women experience sagginess and extra skin in the breasts. Dr. Christine Petti can address this with a breast lift as part of a Mommy Makeover. By removing excess skin and redraping the skin of the breasts, Dr. Petti can tighten the area and lift the breasts to a more desirable position, giving you a more youthful, ’perkier’ bustline.

Breast Augmentation with Implants

In addition to a breast lift, Dr. Petti can place silicone or saline implants inside the breasts to add fullness to the bustline. Dr. Petti is extremely skilled and experienced with breast enhancement procedures, tailoring procedures to suit your goals. Breast lift with implants can rejuvenate and enlarge your breasts after pregnancy with beautiful, natural-looking results.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Of course, the most obvious area affected by pregnancy is the mid-section, and for many people, it is particularly difficult to lose the appearance of extra fat in this area even with rigorous diet and exercise. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) allows Dr. Petti to tighten the underlying abdominal muscles that are often pulled apart during pregnancy. The extra skin is removed, and the remainder is pulled taut to give you a flatter, more fit-looking stomach.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

The Brazilian butt lift procedure can add volume, shape, lift, and firmness to the buttocks, while also slimming and contouring areas of the body with excess fat. To achieve soft, natural-looking enhancement of the buttocks, the BBL procedure involves the collection and transfer of fat from other areas of the body. First, fat is harvested using liposuction techniques, then it is purified to retain the healthiest possible fat cells. Finally, the high-quality fat is reinjected into the buttocks to create the desired shape and size. Dr. Petti draws upon her exceptional surgical skill and keen artistic instincts to create optimized contours that balance and accentuate the natural beauty of your overall figure. Many women decide to include BBL as part of their mommy makeover to restore and enhance their youthful curves, while also redistributing unwanted fat that has collected in the abdomen, hips, thighs, and other areas of the body. Mommy makeover patients are typically thrilled with their BBL results and experience renewed confidence in their figure.

Injectable Facial Rejuvenation

BOTOX® Cosmetic and an array of injectable dermal fillers such as collagen, JUVEDERM, and Restylane® can provide significant rejuvenation to facial signs of exhaustion, stress, and aging. Dr. Christine Petti can also plump up the lips and add volume to facial features for new moms who want to enhance the contours of the face.
