The Mommy Makeover was engineered to restore the beautiful figure you one once had prior to pregnancy. Usually, it involves a combination of procedures, including: smoothing out your abdomen with a tummy tuck, removing stretch marks and hanging skin, lifting and augmenting sagging breasts, and rejuvenating your skin with chemical peels and dermal fillers. After a Mommy Makeover, you may well discover a new zest for life and, maybe, bikinis!
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) after Childbirth
If you are like most women, you looked forward to having your flat stomach back once your pregnancy was behind you. But you may have been surprised when that did not happen. After your abdomen rapidly expands during pregnancy, you may be left with many tummy, hip, and thigh stretch marks. Your pregnancy may also have stretched your abdominal muscles and resulted in a loss of abdominal wall integrity and tightness. The changes are physical and dieting and exercise alone cannot reverse them. A tummy tuck tightens your abdominal muscles, removes the excess skin folds and stretch marks, rejuvenates your belly button, and can even tone your upper thighs and buttocks. The combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction can also help restore your former figure.
Breast Enhancement after Childbirth
Remember how lush and full your breasts felt while you were pregnant? Did you finish breastfeeding and suddenly realize your breasts no longer look like the ones you remember? During pregnancy, your breasts enlarge and the skin, areola, and the supporting ligaments stretch as your body prepares to feed your baby. But after breastfeeding, breast tissue shrinks and loses volume, and breasts sag and appear empty. Dr. Davidson can help your breasts look young again through a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift. While saline or silicone implants will help to restore breast shape, the breast lift will tighten your skin, diminish the size of the areola, and lift your breasts, all in one surgery.
Rejuvenating the Skin
The Mommy Makeover can also include facial rejuvenation. Dr. Davidson’s Medical Spa offers many different ways of restoring your skin’s smooth and youthful appearance. Chemical peels can restore its natural glow, and injectable dermal fillers can diminish the appearance of “crow’s feet” and deep folds from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
