Mommy Makeover or Tummy Tuck

Let Ederra Bella Help You Decide on the Best Procedure So You Can Look and Feel Your Best

Are you looking to slim down after pregnancy? Have you struggled to lose those extra pounds you put on? Do you need help shedding weight around your abdomen? If so, you may be considering a tummy tuck or a total mommy makeover, two of the most popular procedures here at Ederra Bella in Johns Creek.

But how do you decide between these two procedures? Do you know whether the mommy makeover is the right choice, or the tummy tuck? The team at the top plastic surgery office in Johns Creek wants to help you decide. In this article, you can read about the benefits of each procedure, as well as learn more about down time and recovery, so that you can determine the best surgical procedure for your needs.

Mommy Makeover in Johns Creek

All mothers know that, after having a child, their bodies change. Ederra Bella highly recommends mommy makeovers for those who are unhappy about how pregnancy has changed their bodies. If you are done having kids, the mommy makeover treatment may be right for you!

Mommy Makeover Procedures Included

A mommy makeover is a complete makeover that is customized for each patient and features several treatments that contour your body, tighten the tissues and muscles, and reshape the breasts. These surgeries may include a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction and more.

Mommy Makeover Downtime and Recovery

Recovery and down time following a mommy makeover in Johns Creek depends entirely on the procedures each patient undergoes. More invasive surgeries, like breast augmentation, may require at least one week of downtime and a limit on strenuous activity and exercise.

Ederra Bella will make recommendations to customize your mommy makeover treatment and to ensure that you have the optimal results and recovery period.

Tummy Tuck

If you can’t lose stubborn fat on your lower abs or sides, you may be a candidate for a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck will remove excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen.

Types of Tummy Tucks and Recovery Time

There are two types of tummy tucks:

• A complete abdominoplasty near your navel that extends from hip to hip.
• A mini abdominoplasty only requires a small incision above your pubic bone.

Recovery times can vary from one to four weeks, and Ederra Bella recommends planning to take time off from work to heal.

Best Candidates for a Tummy Tuck in Johns Creek

Tummy tucks are ideal for those who have struggled to lose weight with traditional diet and exercise. They may have loose or sagging skin as a result of multiple pregnancies or losing a substantial amount of weight.

If you plan on having more children or lose more weight, we do not recommend having a tummy tuck. Either of these actions could ruin the results of a tummy tuck.

Choosing Between a Tummy Tuck and Mommy Makeover

Whether you get a mommy makeover or a tummy tuck is a personal choice. The mommy makeover is ideal for those who want to tone up multiple areas of the body, like the arms, breasts and stomach, while a tummy tuck only focuses on the lower abdomen and hips.

Kimberly E.

Dr. Bennett is absolutely amazing! From the very beginning, I felt incredibly comfortable and at home. She is highly skilled and top notch with everything she does. The results of my liposuction were incredible and my skin has noticeably been transformed by Dr. Bennett's facials and skincare line. She is a highly skilled, extraordinarily gifted doctor with the most beautiful spirit and genuinely cares about each one of her patients. I give Dr. Bennett and her staff my highest recommendation. Her staff is always kind, courteous and professional.

Gwen R.

Love the family like environment. My experience with the doctor and everyone in the office began with the follow up phone call from the online inquiry. Felt like I have known each of them for years. They made my experience so much easier than I thought it would have been. Just being in the office is a comforting beginning to my procedures. With the procedures that I did have I am quickly seeing some results. I would definitely recommend anyone to this establishment.

Let me first say that this place is so cute! The ambience is amazing. Amanda and her staff are extremely friendly, attentive and professional. Chanel performed a hydra facial with light therapy and I immediately saw results. I have been receiving compliments on my skin daily and I give all credit to Dr. Myla’s PrettyRX skincare line! Try Chanel and Dr. Myla out, you won’t regret it! Plus there’s plenty of free parking!

Karen A.

The Royal Treatment! From the moment you walk in the staff make you feel special. The Hydrafacial was beyond amazing and far exceeded my expectations. I'm still glowing! Chanel who did my facial was a complete joy, knowledgeable and very professional. Dr. Myla is a true Boss lady and rockstar physician. I can't wait to book my next appointment.

Dr. Myla Bennett is great. I found her on Instagram! After seeing many of her cases, I decided to make an appointment for a virtual consultation. I'm in NH where we don't have plastic surgeons that specialize in ethnic skin. Making that appointment was the best decision ever. She developed a regimen for me that I followed diligently. I never had horrible skin but Dr. Myla definitely put my skin on another level. I get compliments all the time...and I NEVER wear makeup. Her products are great too! Definitely give Dr. Myla a call, and don't hesitate if you are outside of GA.

Porscha S.

Ederra Bella is the best! Dr. Myla is very knowledgeable and she goes well beyond the call of duty to make sure her patients are well-informed. The staff is very friendly and the second you walk into the office, you immediately feel like you’re part of the family. I have and will continue referring Ederra Bella for anyone seeking services related to skin care and plastic surgery. I do want to add, Dr. Myla has just launched her skin care line, PrettyRx and it is absolutely amazing. I’ve gotten so many compliments, from random people I see during the day to make-up and skin professionals, telling me about how great my skin is. The products are light, gentle and, most importantly, they work! If you want clear, pretty and youthful skin, PrettyRx is what you need.

Towanda D.

Dr. Myla, is absolutely amazing, I trust her with my life. I had surgery and it ended up being two surgeries because of a issue she identified and made sure it got taken care of. Dr. Myla goes above and beyond to make her clients feel beautiful and important. I called and text her and she always answered and assisted with any questions, no matter the time. I would recommend her for any services, because she is very professional and knows her stuff. Thank you and your team Dr. Myla, for making me preserve my pretty!.
