Many mothers know all too well the physical toll that childbearing can take on the body. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight fluctuations may leave you with loose abdominal skin, a tummy bulge that just won’t budge, stretch marks and sagging, deflated, misshapen breasts. These issues can contribute to a lower self-image and self-esteem. Fortunately, an all-over transformation is possible with the mommy makeover!
Instead of improving just one part of your body, the mommy makeover provides a more complete physical restoration that may inspire significant emotional and psychological changes. Typically, a mommy makeover includes breast surgery, a tummy tuck and liposuction but can involve other procedures as well.
Breast Augmentation: Using breast implants, breast augmentation aims to boost breast fullness, enhance shape and reverse volume loss caused by pregnancy and nursing.
Breast Lift: A breast lift reshapes and lifts the breasts, removing excess skin and correcting breast sagging or other breast changes caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Breast Reduction: Breast reduction surgery reduces the weight of the breasts to give them a smaller and shapelier contour after excessive breast swelling during pregnancy and nursing. It can also correct breast asymmetry, improve body proportions, and alleviate the discomforts and physical irritations that can accompany large, cumbersome breasts.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck procedure tightens, firms and improves the contour of the abdomen by removing the excess, stretched skin and fat, and tightening the weakened muscle wall.
Liposuction: Liposuction eliminates the excess stubborn fat pockets that can accumulate all over the body during pregnancy.
The mommy makeover is a personalized approach to body contouring after pregnancy and breastfeeding and can be completely customized.
Because this procedure can be personalized for every patient, and because it is so versatile, the mommy makeover can truly give you the body you want. Based on your desires and realistic expectations, Dr. Nickodem in Annandale can help you choose which procedures to include in your mommy makeover to achieve your desired aesthetic results.
