Mommy Makeover //
Having children can be one of the greatest gifts of life. Unfortunately, the changes your body goes through can often take their toll on your skin and overall shape, making it very difficult to regain your pre-pregnancy figure. That is why Dr. Smtih offers the “Mommy Makeover” for our post-pregnancy patients – to provide you with the means of restoring your body.
So exactly what is a “Mommy Makeover”?
A mommy makeover is a combination of patient specific plastic surgery procedures that target and correct the changes of your body that occured as a result of having children, notably involving your abdomen and breasts. The goal is to help you to return to a more pre-pregnancy figure. Pregnancy affects to varying degrees your breasts, abdomen and even the distribution of body fat and so these are the areas that can be addressed. Other cosmetic procedures can also be performed at the same time to help you obtain the appearance that you have always desired.
Many women lose the youthful firmness, shape and volume of their breasts and acquire stretch marks and drooping with pregnancy. Breast feeding, including the total duration and the number of children, can make this impact significantly worse. Some women will actually experience a permanent increase in breast size though they become very droopy and the shape suffers. Cosmetic procedures that can effectively address these changes include a breast augmentation, a breast lift with or without implants and a breast reduction.
Changes in the appearance of the abdomen following pregnancy can range from minimally perceptible to marked laxity with considerable protuberance, loose hanging skin, diffuse stretch marks and an increased quantity of fat. In order to give you back a more sculptedand firm abdomen, cosmetic procedures such as a tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, and liposuction can be considered. Liposuction can also be performed on other areas of your body as well such as the hips, thighs, knees and back to allow you to obtain even more rewarding results.
The combination of cosmetic procedures of the breast and abdomen that are most appropriate for you with or without liposuction performed at one surgical setting constitutes the “Mommy Makeover”. Of course, you can elect to have other procedures done at the same time such as eyelid surgery. This rejuvenation of one’s body back to a more desirable shape can do wonders for your psyche, self-confidence and sense of attractiveness.
