Congratulations on your new baby and adding to your family! Currently raising 2 children of my own, I know first-hand the pure joy and exuberance we mothers share when bringing a new life into the world. Having a child is one of life’s true fundamental gifts and is certainly a challenging yet equally rewarding venture. As women and mother’s we possess an inherent nature to constantly sacrifice our time and well-being for the greater good of our family. It is without question that the rigors of pregnancy, child birth and breast feeding can have an adverse and unflattering effect on our bodies. Typically, the impacted areas of concern to most mothers tend to be located in your: abdomen, breasts, and skin. Helping women to resurrect their pre-pregnancy figures is an area of particular interest to me. Using my refined skills as a plastic surgeon, I will formulate a customized treatment plan to address your areas of concern. Mommy makeover surgery is a combination procedure in which 2 or more cosmetic surgery procedures are performed as a means to revitalize the natural contours of your body.
Common Areas of Concern
- Loss of breast volume
- Breast sagging
- Loose abdomen skin
- Stretch marks
- Excess fat in the hip and thigh area
We are all aware of the abundant advantages that breast feeding presents for both mother and child. It is common, however, for your breasts to lose volume and contour after breastfeeding your child. Breast augmentation is a procedure that restores volume to your breasts by placing silicone or saline implants either above or underneath the pectoral muscle. The results can leave you with larger, natural-looking breasts that restore contour and fullness to the breasts.
Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift
In some cases, a breast lift is recommended in conjunction with breast augmentation. This treatment option is usually performed on patients who are concerned with loss of volume, contour and loose skin in and around the breast region. A breast lift eliminates excess fat and redrapes the skin to form a tighter, “perkier” bustline.
Liposuction is a dynamic procedure that serves to remove fatty deposits that have gathered onto virtually any body area as a result of pregnancy. Typically, areas that respond well to liposuction include: the hips, waist, “love handles,” thighs, legs, chin and ankles. Liposuction can eliminate the excess fat and give you a more contoured appearance.
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to flatten the abdomen or stomach area. Tummy tuck surgery is a popular surgical choice among mothers, as it is an effective method of tightening the skin in the stomach region and eliminating loose skin and stretch marks.
Liposuction & Abdominoplasty Combination
In some cases combining liposuction and abdominoplasty surgery is a great treatment option for women who wish to restore contour and curve to their bodies.
