What Does a Mommy Makeover Entail?
A Mommy Makeover at Aesthetically Yours involves 2-3 procedures to tighten and rejuvenate skin as well as regain volume and shape in your breasts. Enhancing your current breast size is also possible. This includes breast revision or breast implants and reconstruction.
Carrying a child for 9 months can present major changes to the skin and surrounding tissues of your stomach. More commonly known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen areas in order to create a contoured, toned stomach. This one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States, tummy tucks are requested for a variety of reasons such as post-pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and in conjunction with diet and exercise. Typically, a tummy tuck has long-term, lasting results.
Both pregnancy and breastfeeding can prove to be detrimental to the shape and volume of breasts. With a mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, your figure can appear rejuvenated or more youthful. Excess skin is removed and surrounding tissue is tightened in the breast areas, providing elasticity and shape. Results are typically seen immediately, but the benefits of the surgery can be fully enjoyed once swelling goes down and the incision lines fade.
Breast Augmentation (optional)
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also directly affect breast size. A breast enhancement, or augmentation, is possible with a Mommy Makeover but is an optional choice. The breast implant procedure uses either implants or fat to increase breast size and volume, improve your body’s overall balance and make you feel better about your breasts. Augmentations are also commonly performed on those who have lost breast shape and fullness due to significant weight changes or for individuals who simply want a breast size increase.
During your consultation, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anne Nickodem will meet with you to discuss your expectations for these procedures as well as the possible risks and side effects or abominoplasty and breast implants. Care at Aesthetically Yours is individualized and focuses on your entire well-being, not just your immediate concerns. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and get back the body you love, serving Annandale, Reston, and Chevy Chase.
As a result of childbirth and the natural aging process, changes in the muscle tone of the vagina can lead to uncomfortable symptoms such as incontinence, loss of libido, pain during intimacy, and more. It can also lead to a sagging appearance and cause self-consciousness.
