Mommy Makeover

As a mother you have taken care of your children and your household, now it is time to take care of yourself! Feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin is part of living a happy and healthy life. Your goal may be to enlarge and reshape your breast due to the effects of pregnancy and breast feeding. Or you may want to reclaim a balanced size for your breast and abdominal area that can not be achieved alone with exercising and eating healthy. Dr. Gorman has performed hundreds of mommy makeovers and will treat each patient with individual care. When it comes to mommy makeovers experience is a key factor in getting the results you would like.

A mommy makeover can include a variety of procedures, according to the individual's needs. The procedures associated with a mommy makeover are tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. 

As you decided to move forward with surgery you can count on Dr. Gorman and his staff to make this a great experience and smooth recovery. The staff is available to answer questions before and after surgery.

Arm Lift & Arm Reduction (Brachioplasty)

Austin Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. William H. Gorman sits down with every patient for a one-on-one consultation & thoroughly explains all procedures in depth. Here are a few helpful answers in the meantime before your appointment.

 

An arm lift (brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. Aging can cause the skin to become loose and flabby. Our surgeons will discuss brachioplasty with patients who want to tighten this skin and look as good as they feel. Liposuction alone may be recommended or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat.

 

Body Lift

A well-toned body with smooth contours often is a sign of fitness achieved by healthy diet exercise. But exercise cannot always achieve results for individuals who have loose, sagging skin and uneven contours. Aging, sun damage, pregnancy and significant fluctuation in weight as well as genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity and can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and loose upper arms. 

If you desire a firmer, more youthful-looking body contour, then a surgical body lift may help achieve your goals.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Buttock augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "Brazilian butt lift" when fat transfer is involved, uses butt implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of both to increase the size of your behind.

What buttock augmentation surgery can do? Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your butt or buttocks. Improve the balance of your figure. Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
Buttock augmentation surgery is right for someone who does not like the shape of their butt or is looking to balance their body. It is commonly performed in one of two ways, with butt implants or fat transfer. The fat transfer procedure is commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift.

Liposuction (Lipoplasty or "fat modeling")

Even with persistent diet and exercise, some areas of your body may continue to resist your efforts. These stubborn areas, which can include the body (abdomen, thighs and buttocks), face, and neck, may respond better to liposuction. When you remove deposits of excess fat from these areas, a smoother, better contoured body is the result. While not a treatment for obesity, liposuction can improve the look of hips, thighs, and buttock, shape calves and ankles, trim the upper arm and chest area, as well as tighten the abdomen and waist.

How Much Fat Can be Removed?

The amount of fat that can be safely removed in one session is ultimately determined by Dr. Gorman and you. There can be negative aspects to removing too much fat like unusual "lumpiness" and/or "dents" in the skin can be seen in those patients "over-suctioned". Dr. Gorman is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and takes every precaution to not only meet the goals of his patients, but also do so safely.

Thigh Lift

If you often wear loose-fitting clothing, or you'd rather sit than stand in a social gathering simply because you don't like the shape of your thighs and buttocks, a Lateral/Medial Thigh Lift may be a fine option for you. While nothing can completely remove all cellulite, this surgery will remove excess fat and skin to reduce the volume of thighs and buttocks, improve the contours of those areas, and tighten the skin to improve the appearance of cellulite.

Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) - circumfrential & extended

If you can't flatten your stomach with a healthy diet and regular abdominal workouts, you might be in the market for an abdominoplasty. While such lifestyle changes can improve your health, they are often no match for excess fat and loose, sagging skin that some people hold onto after losing a lot of weight or having children. A tummy tuck will firm and smooth the abdomen by removing that excess fat and skin, and may also tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. If you want a leaner and more defined midsection than you have been able to achieve with diet or exercise, speak to Dr. Gorman about a tummy tuck. He is skilled in tummy tuck procedures from the most basic to more extended, circumferential abdominoplasty surgeries.

Vagina Rejuvenation

Vagina Rejuvenation can be any of these procedures listed. 

  • Labiaplasty, procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora.

  • Excess folds of the clitoral hood, or prepuce, can be reduced with a clitoral hood reduction. The procedure is most commonly done along with a labiaplasty.

  • A Labia majoraplasty is a procedure designed to surgically reduce the size of the outer, hair-bearing labia majora.

  • Monsplasty; Some women struggle with a bulge of excess skin and fat in the mons, the upper part of the hair-bearing part of their vulva.

  • Vaginoplasty (also known as posterior colporrhaphy) is a procedure designed to tighten the vagina. An alternative is noninvasive vaginal tightening through heating tissues with radiofrequency waves or laser like the HALO offered by our APSI Skin Care Clinic. Patients with significant laxity may not experience a benefit from these treatments and may be better candidates for surgical tightening with vaginoplasty.

If you are a woman who is in need of any of these surgeries due to childbirth, discomfort, or labia enlargement than discussing your options with Dr. Gorman during a consultation is the first step.
