In Houston, Texas, board-certified plastic surgeon Olga Bachilo, MD says the trend for Mommy Makeovers at her practice is not only focused on lifting the breasts and tightening the abdomen, but also vaginal rejuvenation treatments for moms after childbirth, significant weight loss or simply aging.
“A Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to restore and rejuvenate a woman’s body,” explains Dr. Bachilo. “Typically, this involves a breast augmentation or lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck. But today, we are looking at the patient’s needs from head to toe. Very commonly, women want to add other surgical and nonsurgical procedures, including labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, monsplasty, Emsella or Ultra Femme 360.”
For patients who want to restore their youthful bodies, a vaginal rejuvenation procedure may help with appearance, sensitivity and comfort, says Dr. Bachilo. “I approach these delicate concerns with care and empathy, as a mother myself I know many women may be shy discussing these topics openly. However, these procedures can relieve discomfort, enhance and rejuvenate the appearance of the genital area, and dramatically improve patient’s overall quality of life, which is why they have become so popular.”
Vaginoplasty or labiaplasty rejuvenates the appearance and restores the healthy function of the female genital region. Dr. Bachilo says vaginoplasty may be done to reconstruct the vagina, tighten vaginal walls, and alleviate urinary stress incontinence, while labiaplasty enhances the appearance, tone, and texture of the vulva and labia.
“Today, Mommy Makeovers are much easier on the patient to undergo,” explains Dr. Bachilo. “I perform drainless tummy tucks and use a multi-modal pain management protocol, which aids in enhanced recovery after surgery. For my patients who want to undergo surgery just once, it makes sense to include vaginal rejuvenation so they can emerge from their procedure with their full-body restored.”
For Dr. Bachilo, patient satisfaction rates say it all. “Many of my patients come from other patients’ referrals, which is a true measure of success,” she says. “While I know they love their hourglass figures, them recommending me to their friends and family is a testament to how much they love their results.”
