For many women, there is no gift greater than the gift of motherhood. Unfortunately, the modern mother’s busy schedule makes it difficult to get into shape after childbirth, and some mothers find that they are bothered by stretch marks, drooping breasts, excess fat, and other physical after-effects of pregnancy. The mommy makeover gives new mothers the chance to recapture their pre-childbirth appearance with a single surgical visit, where once a series of separate procedures and recovery periods would have been required. Every mommy makeover procedure incorporates a suite of the most advanced cosmetic surgery techniques, and the end result is healthy, stunning, natural beauty.
The hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy sometimes cause stubborn fat deposits that are difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. To help mothers experiencing these problems, the mommy makeover includes a variety of advanced body contouring techniques such as liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), thigh lift, and arm lift.
During liposuction, Dr. Potter makes discreet incisions and uses suction to remove excess fat. The tummy tuck procedure involves tightening the stomach muscles and removing extra skin in order to create a flatter abdomen. Thigh and arm lifts entail trimming away extra folds of skin and tissue that hang from the arms and legs, making them slimmer and more attractive. In combination, these procedures can be used to restore the patient’s pre-pregnancy figure.
Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation
Pregnancy and breastfeeding may leave a mother’s breasts stretched and drooping. As a part of the mommy makeover procedure Dr. Potter offers a combination of breast procedures, including breast lift surgery and breast augmentation surgery, to restore the breasts to their pre-pregnancy state.
During breast lift surgery, Dr. Potter will reshape and reposition the breasts in order to restore them to their pre-pregnancy location on the chest. For mothers who have also experienced a reduction in breast volume as a result of breastfeeding, breast augmentation with implants can restore the breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape, size, and firmness. Breast augmentation surgery also offers mothers the opportunity to increase their breast size if they wish to do so.
The mommy makeover gives new hope to mothers who want to highlight their beauty by returning to their pre-pregnancy weight and shape. If you would like more information on mommy makeovers, contact Graystone Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery.
