Common Mommy Makeover Procedures for the Abdomen & Breasts
Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a plastic surgery procedure that removes loose skin and excessive fat from the lower abdomen, as well as tightening the abdominal muscles for improved contour, tone and function of the abdomen. It is usually best to postpone surgery until you plan no more children and your weight is stable.
After pregnancy and breast-feeding, it is common for women to lose breast volume, leaving breasts smaller and “deflated”, with skin looseness and drooping or “sagging” of the breasts. Breast Augmentation, through the use of breast implants, allows fullness of breasts being restored, regaining shape and volume.
Known as mastopexy, breast lift plastic surgeryis an ideal post pregnancy cosmetic procedure to correct saggy, loose breasts where you were happy with the size of your breasts prior to pregnancy and are merely looking to make them appear firmer.
Liposuction, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat areas, reshaping and contouring your body. The hormonal changes that come with pregnancy and lactation cause women’s bodies to store excess fat, particularly in the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. It is important to note that Liposuction is not a weight loss tool, and is best done close to your ideal weight and fitness. It is often performed in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries to improve body contour such as Tummy Tuck or cosmetic Breast Augmentation.
Quality Skin Care Treatments
Anti-wrinkle injections and cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers: Lines and wrinkles can be effectively addressed with little or no down time with anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Anti-wrinkle injections work by reducing facial muscle activity and dermal fillers work by restoring volume to fill depressions and hollows.
