Pregnancy and motherhood bring about many changes in a woman’s life. From the indescribable love for your new child to the renewed since of purpose in your relationship, many changes associated with motherhood are positive. Along with positive emotional transformations, pregnancy and motherhood can permanently change your body as well. Throughout the process, your body acts as a protective barrier between your growing child and the outside world, nourishing and sheltering the baby. While gaining weight in moderation during pregnancy is necessary, losing the pounds and reducing excess inches afterward can be difficult, especially given how busy new moms can be.
Mommy Makeover surgery is Southern Plastic Surgery’s answer to helping moms rejuvenate their bodies to match their new attitudes toward life. Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body. Whether you’re looking to tighten up your waistline or give yourself a complete rejuvenation, a mommy makeover is customized to suit your needs and help give you the body you remember.
Southern Plastic Surgery’s mommy makeover surgery often includes a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), a procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the middle and lower abdominal areas while tightening the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure that produces dramatic results. Women whose abdominal skin and muscles have been stretched from carrying children or gaining and then losing large amounts of weight benefit the most from traditional abdominoplasty.
Liposuction is another viable option for mommy makeover surgery. Often used for areas of stubborn fat that do not respond to regular diet and exercise, liposuction offers results for those looking to target specific areas like the love handles (flanks) or inner thighs. Each woman’s body reacts differently to pregnancy; some women put on pregnancy fat just in their bellies, while others gain all over. For those who have a harder time losing excess fat gained during pregnancy, liposuction offers body contouring to eliminate the deposits of fat that exercise and diet cannot.
The final element of a mommy makeover is a breast procedure. Because breasts are made mostly of fatty tissue, breast size changes with pregnancy and weight fluctuation. Depending on the individual, breast feeding can also have an impact on the size and density of the breast. For those looking to rejuvenate the appearance of sagging or deflated breasts, a breast lift sometimes combined with breast augmentation can be made part of your personalized mommy makeover surgery. Women left with overly large breasts after pregnancy may also benefit from breast reduction surgery.
A breast augmentation can help restore your body to its natural proportions. Dr. David Whiteman specializes in creating fuller, natural-looking breasts that mesh well with your current body size and enhance your overall look. For those looking for younger, perkier, and firmer breasts, a breast lift can provide revitalizing results. By removing excess skin surrounding the breast tissue and lifting the nipple, Dr. Whiteman can reshape the breast to provide more youthful looking results. Breast reduction surgery can be used to condense the breasts to a more proportional size post-pregnancy. Breast augmentation and breast lift procedures, or breast reduction and breast lift procedures can even be combined in a mommy makeover in order to provide the distinct results you desire.
