There are very few things that are as life-changing as having a child. While there is a lot of joy involved in having a child, dealing with the changes that happen to your body throughout the pregnancy and birth experience can be a challenge. Excess fat and skin can hang on, as well as loosened abdominal muscles. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, your breasts will grow. However, once you no longer need to breastfeed, your breasts may look deflated. You are happy to be a mother, but it can be disheartening to see the changes that pregnancy and giving birth have made to your body. This is where a mommy makeover can be beneficial. This is a powerful procedure that can help you look and feel your best again.
The mommy makeover procedure is designed to completely revolutionize the way that your body looks. The goal is to get you as close to your pre-baby body as possible. It may even make you look better than you did before you became pregnant! The procedure is customized for you. It may include liposuction, a tummy tuck, as well as breast augmentation procedures.
When it comes to the deflation of your breasts, our surgeon may decide that it’s best to augment their size as a way of addressing the stretching of the skin. Or our doctor may recommend a breast lift. In some situations, she may actually recommend both procedures. The thing about a mommy makeover is that the entire procedure is tailored for you.
So, how can you tell if a mommy makeover is the best choice for you? Talk with our double board-certified plastic surgeon, who has experience performing this procedure. It is important to understand that a mommy makeover is a body contouring procedure. It is not designed to be a weight loss solution.
Thanks to a mommy makeover, you no longer have to be disappointed about the way your body looks after having a child. During a consultation at the office of Beth Collins, MD in Guilford, you can learn more about how this procedure can help you reclaim your pre-baby body. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
