Childbirth can be one of the most important experiences in a woman’s life. Giving birth is truly amazing, but it can take a significant toll on a woman’s body. After pregnancy, a mother may try to restore her pre-baby body through diet and exercise, but this can sometimes feel impossible to achieve. Sagging breasts and a protruding midsection may not respond to healthy lifestyle changes. Occasionally a surgical intervention is necessary to obtain the results that you desire.
More mothers than ever are choosing a mommy makeover to rejuvenate their physique. This personalized treatment plan addresses the areas of the body most affected by pregnancy and breast-feeding, including the breasts and torso. Dr. James Lowe performs mommy makeover treatments at his Oklahoma City, OK, practice to improve your appearance and body image. Reach out to us today to schedule your mommy makeover consultation.
A mommy makeover is different for each patient. Each individualized treatment plan takes into account your unique needs and aesthetic goals. A mommy makeover usually includes a procedure that enhances the breasts and slims the waist, including:
A pregnant woman’s breasts grow to accommodate milk production. When a woman is done breast-feeding, the breasts lose volume, especially in the upper area of the chest. A breast lift is a surgical procedure that repositions the breast tissue and nipple higher on the chest mound, while also removing excess tissue and skin. This procedure can make the breasts perkier and more youthful looking.
Some women may want to add lost volume in addition to repositioning the breasts. These patients often choose to combine a breast lift with implants. Women who have lost significant breast volume can improve the size, symmetry, projection, and firmness with implants. Conversely, women who do not have sagging breasts and simply want to recover lost breast volume can benefit from a breast augmentation procedure.
During pregnancy, the mother’s abdominal muscles weaken and stretch, causing the midsection to protrude even after childbirth. This part of the body can be very difficult to tone and define. Pockets of abdominal fat may be resistant to natural weight-loss techniques. Additionally, abdominal muscles can be difficult to tighten effectively even with a rigorous training and exercise routine. The skin along the abdomen can also be stretched during pregnancy to the point that it losses elasticity, causing extensive bulging and sagging. A tummy tuck, also called adominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that tightens weakened abdominal muscles and removes excess skin. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with liposuction as a highly effective way to achieve a flat, toned midsection. Some women also opt to have liposuction performed on the arms, thighs, flanks, and other areas of the body that are prone to weight gain during pregnancy.
