Custom Surgery- The Adaptability of Mommy Makeover Surgery

As a fresh school year begins, all parents hope that their children will have teachers who can commit to paying an adequate amount of time and attention to their child’s individual educational and developmental needs.  As a plastic surgeon, Dr. David Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery recognizes this same need in parents (and patients): the need for individual care and a customizable treatment plan.

This is why, with every surgery; Dr. Whiteman emphasizes the variable nature of combination cosmetic procedures like mommy makeover surgery.  As described in a previous blog post, Dr. Whiteman performs mommy makeover surgery to remedy the effects of pregnancy and child birth on a woman’s body.
Every woman’s body responds differently to pregnancy: some women experience significant weight gain, some are more reactive to the hormone fluctuation and experience more breast changes, and some have very limited physical changes from pregnancy.  Every woman also has a different opinion about her desired aesthetic result.  The best cosmetic surgery is one that is performed by a board certified plastic surgeon who is able to clearly understand your surgical expectations and work with you individually to formulate a plan for surgery and after-care to optimize your results.

If you’re a mom who is ready to let yourself look as good as your kids do going back to school this year, contact Dr. Whiteman’s office to schedule a consultation for mommy makeover surgery or review his website and blog for additional information.

Helping Women Reclaim Their Bodies After Pregnancy with Mommy Makeover Surgery

As most new parents will attest, having a baby is life changing. As most mothers will also attest, being pregnant and having a baby are also body changing experiences (some of those changes are little less welcome than others.) After listening to the stories of several post maternity patients, Dr. David Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery is now spotlighting his surgical skills with mommy makeover surgery.

While all mommy makeover surgical plans must be custom tailored to each mother’s concerns and health histories, Dr. David Whiteman’s mommy makeover surgery often consists of tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty), to tighten the abdominal muscle and/or remove skin that is stretched with the baby’s growth, liposuction of small areas of fat, and breast augmentation or breast lift procedures to remedy the effects of breast feeding and to restore mothers’ bodies to their pre-baby appearance.

As evidenced by his previous blogs, Dr. Whiteman is a major proponent of responsible, health-oriented life changes– not quick fixes. He understands the extreme pressure on new mother’s to instantly bounce back to their pre-baby appearance, but emphasizes the fact that major physical changes take time stating:

“It takes nine whole months for a baby to fully develop. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect that reversing the effects from those changes could be instantaneous.”

Also important to note, mommy makeover surgery is only suitable for women who are done having children; as additional pregnancy could reverse surgical results. To schedule a consultation, call Dr. Whiteman’s office or visit his website to develop a plan to get you back to your pre-baby best!
