Mommy Makeover: What are my surgical options?

Mommy Makeover: Great Results with Cosmetic Procedures

Has pregnancy caused your body to change in a way you have never experienced before? You have probably thought about a mommy makeover, and have no idea where to start.  A mommy makeover can help restore your confidence and make your body look even better than before! Dr. Rudderman, a board certified plastic surgeon, has over 25 years of experience and loves helping his patients achieve pleasing results.

Pregnancy can change the shape and size of the breasts leaving you self-conscious about the current condition of your breasts.  Maybe nursing your bundle of joy has left your breasts with a lack of volume or a deflated appearance. A breast augmentation is the key to obtaining the full breasts you once had or have always desired. Some other mothers may experience another effect where breasts have become droopy.  A breast lift is a solution to droopy breasts, and will reposition the breasts for a perky appearance.

The abdomen often changes during pregnancy and regardless of diet and exercise does not return to its original state.  Two surgical options would be either abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or liposuction.  A tummy tuck will tighten and lift relaxed muscles and can remove excess skin and fatty tissue. With proper diet and regular exercise, the best results can be maintained.  Liposuction is another option for mothers who desire a better body after baby.  Liposuction can reduce fat from the abdomen, and get rid of unsightly bulges.

Some tips to remember before embarking on your mommy makeover:

  1. Make sure you are no longer breast feeding.
  2. Mommy makeover is not recommended if you are planning a pregnancy in 9-12 months
  3. Have a great support team of family or friends who will provide transportation for surgery and appointments.  Help with childcare and household chores is also recommended.

The benefit of a mommy makeover is multiple procedures at one time which means one explanation to friends and family.
