Getting your beauty and well-being back on track.
Few words can describe the overwhelming feeling of joy mothers experience when holding their little miracle for the very first time. Pregnancy may take a significant toll on your body however. The damage mostly involves the breast and abdomen. Changes of the breast include droop, loss of size and widening of the areola, Seperation of the stomach muscles, stretchmarks and loose skin are some of the changes seen in the stomach area.
In the world of cosmetic surgery, Mommy Makeovers are giving women their confidence and physical beauty back. Procedures such as breast lift and tummy tuck can be combined or performed individually. When to proceed with these procedures varies and a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon should be able to determine the best timing and combination of procedures for you.
What is included in the Mommy Makeover?
Breast Lift – Mastopexy involves lifting and reshaping your breasts. During the procedure, the nipple is lifted to its original position and the breast tissue is elevated to restore your cleavage. The areola also can be reduced if enlarged. If needed, a breast implant can be placed to create additional fullness and reliably maintain the volume of the upper breast. The incision for a breast lift may be placed only around the areola (“Donut” or Periareolar lift), around the areola and a vertical incision (“Lollipop” or Vertical lift) or around the areola, vertical incision and in the crease (“Anchor” or Wise pattern lift). Prior to proceeding with a breast lift, you should consider the resulting scars and that you may not be able to breastfeed your child following your breast lift.
Breast Augmentation – For some women, a breast augmentation may adequately correct breast changes following pregnancy. Volume loss and a small degree of droop may be corrected by placing a breast implant. There are several types of implants you can choose from, Dr. Samimi and his staff can advise you of your best choices..
Tummy Tuck – For some women, their tummy will never be the same after pregnancy. Even after losing all the pregnancy weight, stretchmarks, loose skin and separation of the rectus muscles can continue to persist. These all can be repaired with an abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck). Dr. Samimi performs liposuction at the time of the abdominoplasty to provide you with the best results for your procedure.
Liposuction – Liposuction alone may fix some fo the pregnancy changes. The benefit of liposuction is that there is a quicker recovery, no significant incisions and relatively little pain. Smaller amounts of liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia. Results should be long-lasting as long as your weight remains stable.
Butt Lift – This procedure involves transferring fat from one section of your body to lift your buttocks for a fuller and rounder look. Butt Lifts can be combined with liposuction to tighten the waist and thighs at the same time.
The good news is that you have many options and the procedures are more affordable than ever before. The results are long lasting and many procedures can be performed with little downtime. As there are plenty of options, you should consult with an experienced and Board-Certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Samimi to find the best choice for you.
