Dr. David Janssen reports an increase in the number of women who want to combine a breast augmentation at his Oshkosh, Wisconsin practice, one hour north of Milwaukee, with a body-sculpting procedure, a combination sometimes known as a Mommy Makeover.
Oshkosh, Wisconsin – Dr. David Janssen of Fox Valley Plastic Surgery has noticed that as women learn about the option of combining plastic surgery procedures to achieve maximum results with less downtime, more women are choosing a Mommy Makeover. This combination procedure typically involves a tummy-slimming option such as a tummy tuck with a breast enhancement procedure such as breast augmentation.
Dr. Janssen explains that although the Mommy Makeover concept has existed for some time, women considering plastic surgery now are becoming more aware of it because of increased media attention and the fact that people are talking more openly about plastic surgery in general.
“As long as women choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate their bodies and needs skillfully, combining procedures can be very safe,” says Dr. Janssen. “It offers benefits for busy moms in particular, because it minimizes their recovery time and down time. That way, they are back to caring for their many responsibilities more quickly than if they stage the procedures.”
Now is an excellent time to consider investing your time and money in a Mommy Makeover, according to Dr. Janssen. “By scheduling their procedures now, women will have time for surgery and recovery before we’re fully into summer,” notes the board-certified plastic surgeon. There can also be benefits to scheduling a Mommy Makeover before fall. September can be one of the busiest times of year for moms as they prepare their families for back-to-school events and change their schedules for school activities.
Dr. Janssen says that among the procedures frequently combined in a Mommy Makeover are breast enhancement procedures such as a breast augmentation and/or lift with a body-sculpting option such as a tummy tuck, liposuction or CoolSculpting®. Dr. Janssen sees patients benefit from improved self-esteem and confidence in having their pre-baby bodies rejuvenated.
