At Webb Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we know that being a mom, whether again or for the first time, can bring indescribable joy – and lots of sleepless nights! Though you might be willing to lose sleep, we also understand that being a mom can impact the shape of your body, which you may not want to lose.
Board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Shayne Webb has the ideal solution for you – a mommy makeover. This is not just any makeover, however, this is one that is tailored specifically for you, as your body may have undergone changes that another mother may not have experienced.
Pregnancy’s Effect On Your Body
Nine months of carrying precious cargo have left your stomach and breasts stretched and loose. Your breasts have further lost their shape from breastfeeding. Stubborn pockets of fat have appeared where there weren’t any before. Even your face may be showing a few effects, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
What can really be disheartening is when no amount of exercise or eating right helps you regain your former shape, firmness, or skin elasticity.
That’s where the Mommy Makeover comes in.
What Is the Mommy Makeover?
It is a combination of treatments that can include some or all of the following:
A rhytidectomy, as it is medically known, can rejuvenate your face by reducing signs of fatigue, lifting saggy jowls or cheeks, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Because it addresses the underlying structure of the skin, your face will be firmer and smoother and reclaim its contour.
Known medically as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can help you regain your previously flat, taut stomach. If you’re like many women, you’ve tried to flatten your stomach after giving birth with exercise and diet, but to no avail. We know how frustrating this can be.
A tummy tuck can deliver the results you want. It helps reduce excess skin, remove unwanted deposits of fat, and tighten your stomach muscles for the flatter stomach you’ve been wanting to have back.
A breast lift can help restore your breasts to their former shape, size, suppleness, and tautness. With or without implants, a breast lift can reduce the effects of the major changes your breasts undergo during and after pregnancy.
Sagging breasts can be elevated, the volume and shape can be restored in flattened breasts, and nipples can be realigned if they are pointing downward as a result of breastfeeding. A breast lift is particularly effective if you have larger breasts that have lost noticeable lift and firmness.
It is important to note that some breast augmentation procedures may not be recommended if you intend on having more children in the future.
Although many people think that liposuction is a weight loss procedure, it’s actually a solution for unwanted deposits of fat that develop in various places while you’re pregnant. Common parts that are addressed during a liposuction for a Mommy Makeover include:
- Love Handles
- Lower Back
Benefits of the Mommy Makeover
A Mommy Makeover can be done all at once or in phases, depending on your aesthetic goals and overall health. Typically, though, it’s a one-day procedure done under general anesthesia. However, since your health is of the utmost concern, this is decided on a case-by-case basis.
Once your procedure is complete, here’s what you can expect:
- A refreshed, more youthful appearance
- Smoother, sleeker features
- Restored contour, and shape
- Tighter, fresher-looking skin
It is a safe, effective solution for new moms and previous moms alike, especially if you’re in otherwise good health, exercise regularly, and eat right.
