A mommy makeover can help you restore your shape, your confidence and your beautiful skin tone if you have undergone one or more pregnancies that have left your body tissues sagging and that have given you stubborn pockets of fat that you cannot seem to diet away. Rather than just addressing a single problem, this makeover can combine four popular procedures for women so that you can experience the benefits of all simultaneously. Plus, you will only have to go through one recovery time. Here, you can learn more about each of the main parts of this makeover to discover if it may be the right solution for you.
Consider a Breast Lift or Augmentation
A breast lift raises sagging breasts that may have stretched-out skin and hanging tissues. You may even notice that your nipples point down and hang lower than your breast crease. A breast lift can give you a perkier shape, raise your nipples and get rid of excessive tissues. Although this is not a procedure for increasing the size of your breasts, you are able to add a breast augmentation if you so desire. This is a great option for lifting your breasts as well as increasing their size, two things that many women want after breastfeeding.
Liposuction is a very popular procedure because many people deal with unwanted fat despite their healthy lifestyles. This procedure can work wonders on certain areas of the body that are difficult to tone, such as the lower abdomen, the lower buttocks, the inner thighs and even the backs of the arms. Our surgeon can perform liposuction nearly anywhere on your body. However, the love handles, abdomen, hips and thighs are the areas most frequently treated as part of a mommy makeover.
Consider a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck will pull your new look together by getting rid of the extra skin and tissues that are hanging from your abdomen over your pelvis. You may notice that you have a muffin top or that your pelvis is nearly hidden by these extra tissues. During the tummy tuck, our surgeon will remove these tissues. They can also pull your abdominals back together, which can be helpful after pregnancy.
If you feel that you would look your best with some of these procedures and you are done having children, then a mommy makeover may be just what you need to restore your body fully. Although it does not stop aging in its tracks, it can restore much of the youthfulness and perkiness that you feel your body has lost. In your consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Katerina Gallus, we can also discuss other noninvasive and minimally-invasive procedures that can further improve your looks, available here at Restore SD Plastic Surgery.
