Childbearing is one of the most beautiful times in many women’s lives. Unfortunately, the body goes through so many changes during this time, and women are left with sagging breasts and loose skin and excess fat around the abdominal area that doesn’t respond well to diet and exercise. That’s when they turn to the increasingly popular “Mommy Makeover” surgery to help them get their pre-pregnancy body back. Read on to learn about the procedures that often comprise a Mommy Makeover surgery.
Childbirth and breastfeeding do a number on women’s breasts, which is why breast augmentation is one of the most sought-after procedures for women after childbearing. A breast augmentation procedure uses silicone gel or saline breast implants to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. A breast lift may also be recommended to raise and shape sagging breasts.
A tummy tuck can easily address excess skin and weakened abdominal muscles from childbearing. There are a few different types of tummy tucks—standard, mini and modified—depending on your needs. Unwanted skin, fat and tissue are removed, and abdominal muscles are tightened at this time.
Liposuction removes stubborn, unwanted fat pockets from various parts of the body. Our technology, called VASERLipo™, targets fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue, which is more precise, produces smooth and shapely outcomes and results in much faster recovery time.
A Brazilian butt lift helps address flabby “orange peel” skin or flat or undersized buttocks that don’t match the contours of the rest of your body. This surgical procedure augments and shapes the buttocks with your own fat, producing a more pronounced, voluminous appearance.
As you can imagine, childbirth can lead to a need for vaginal rejuvenation, which consists of surgical and non-surgical procedures to enhance the vaginal canal, labia or clitoris. This procedure can help improve the functionality or appearance of the vaginal area.
