Should You Opt For A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is not only a path to a more youthful appearance. As we all know, being pregnant is wonderful but can cause some serious, unwanted body appearance changes.
- Your pregnancies have negatively affected your breasts,
both in terms of size or shape
- Your tummy is sagging, and you cannot reduce it with exercise and diet
- You are distressed about the stretch marks
- Exercise and diet cannot reduce the fat on your abdomen, thighs, arms, and waist
- You have a lot of fat hanging over a surgical scar from a C-section
- Your breasts are out of proportion because they became too large after childbirth, or they lost volume
- Your breasts cause back pain because of their size
Many women are distressed over being unable to reduce the fat on their abdomen, thighs, arms, and waist. You have stretch marks, excess skin, and fat hanging over a surgical scar from a C-section scar and the effects of pregnancy. Are your breasts out of proportion because of the aftermath of pregnancy, or have the appearance of deflation and lost volume? Your breasts cause back pain because they can become too large after childbirth and leave you with uneven breasts.
The good news is that you don't have to go through these issues alone. Dr. Vagotis's body contouring procedures will give you a new appealing appearance. After the surgery, you can enjoy your life as before. You will look younger, healthier, and happier than ever.
What Does Mommy Makeover Include?
Our Mommy Makeover procedures include a combination of cosmetic surgeries designed for the individual patient:
Dr. Vagotis, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, can recommend breast procedures such as breast implants, breast reduction, or a lift for your best breast shape. Also, for a youthful body, liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), buttock lift, and/or thigh lift.
Are You a Good Candidate?
The components of a mommy makeover: The breasts and abdomen are the primary areas of change with motherhood; a mommy makeover will often center around a breast and abdomen procedure. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts will also enlarge, increasing as much as a full cup size or more. However, returning to 'normal' can mean a significant loss in breast volume and noticeable sagging. The abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues stretch throughout pregnancy to safely accommodate the growing baby.
Unfortunately, after childbirth, these layers may not bounce back to their taut, pre-baby shape. However, the criteria here are not too strict, so if you have realistic expectations and are in good general health you would be a good candidate.
