Reasons

Reasons for a Mommy Makeover Revision Surgery

There are many reasons why patients decide to have a revision surgery after they’ve had a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure.

The most common reasons that patients seek Mommy Makeover revision include the following:

A Desired Change in Size or Shape

One of the most common reasons that women seek revision surgeries after a Mommy Makeover is the desire to change the size or look of their breasts by selecting a different size or shape breast implant. Most breast augmentation revision surgeries are performed for this reason.

Desire for a Breast Lift

In some cases, the original procedure did not include a breast lift and the patient is noticing sagging produced by the weight of the implant. If the original procedure was performed without the lift, this can be corrected during a revision surgery.

Complications with Breast Implants

There are also many possible complications that may affect breast implants over time. The most common of these include:

  • Malposition – when the implant has shifted or moved out of its proper position
  • Capsular contracture – when the scar tissue around the breast implant becomes calcified and hard, causing the breast to become hard and misshapen
  • Bottoming out – when the implant gradually shifts downward along the chest wall and emerges below the crease underneath the breast. This may be a result of implants that are too large and heavy for the patient’s natural breast tissue, or in some cases it may be caused by the surgeon having positioned the breast crease too far down in the original procedure.
  • Double bubble – when the implant drops below the breast and creates the visual effect of one bubble on top of another.
  • Asymmetry – when the two breasts appear noticeably different in size, volume, shape, or in their position on the chest wall. While no pair of breasts is ever identical in appearance, if the differences between the two breasts are significant, particularly if it is made worse by some problem with the original procedure, this can be corrected by a Mommy Makeover revision.

Complications with Tummy Tuck

The Mommy Makeover includes not only breast enhancement procedures such as Breast Augmentation, but it typically also includes a Tummy Tuck or mini-Tummy Tuck procedure. Patients may seek revision surgery to address the following complications or problems resulting from the Tummy Tuck procedure:

  • Persistent abdominal fullness, possibly caused by improper placement of the Tummy Tuck scar.
  • Poor placement of scars, crooked scars, and generally poor scars that need to be revised in order to provide more comfort while also looking more attractive.
  • Unattractive belly button as a result of the Tummy Tuck scar.
  • A bulge in the upper abdomen in cases where only a mini-Tummy Tuck was performed.
Procedures

Mommy Makeover Revision Procedures

Like the Mommy Makeover, the Mommy Makeover Revision is also a customized procedure that is specifically tailored to each patient. This means that any number of procedures within the following range, may be performed as part of a Mommy Makeover revision.

In some cases, you may wish to revise previous procedures, or you may wish to add new procedures to the revision, such as vaginoplasty or labiaplasty.

Typically, the Mommy Makeover Revision will include a combination of the following procedures:

Breast Revision

Breast revision may include any adjustment to the original breast enhancement procedure, such as adding a lift, changing the size or shape of the implant, replacing the implant with a natural fat transfer, or opting for a breast reduction with mastopexy

Tummy Tuck Revision

Tummy tuck revision may include extending the mini-tummy tuck to a full tummy tuck that includes the upper abdomen above the belly button, or it may include the addition of other procedures.

Liposuction

Over time, new fatty deposits may develop in the body. For this reason, you may choose to include liposuction in the revision, to extract pockets of fat from certain troublesome areas such as the hips, abdomen, and thighs. You may even have the option of transferring the extracted fat to another area of your body where you actually want to add volume and fullness, such as the breasts or cheekbones.

Scar Revisions

Some scars don’t age well, and in some cases, the original surgeon may not have positioned the original scars properly or made them as straight and neat as possible. Scar revision surgery can correct those errors and make your scars far less visible and unsightly.

Umbilicus Revision (Umbilicoplasty)

If the belly button was not properly positioned, or was left with an unattractive appearance after the original Mommy Makeover procedure, you may choose to have it corrected so that it looks and feels more attractive.

Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty

Not all Mommy Makeover procedures include vaginal rejuvenation, and perhaps your original procedure did not include this. But after some time, you may wish to include a genital rejuvenation procedure in the revision. A vaginoplasty is a procedure that tightens or reconstructs the vaginal walls, while a labiaplasty is designed to reduce the sike of the labia minora to prevent discomfort when wearing tight clothing and during sexual intercourse.

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.
cathouston

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable.

Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
