If you have felt uncomfortable with the changes in your body since giving birth, a Mommy Makeover may be the solution for you. Dr Haque has performed many Mommy Makeovers and can help you regain your sleek, pre-motherhood silhouette.
The Effects of Pregnancy on the Body
The rapid, dramatic growth of the uterus during pregnancy stretches not only the skin, creating stretch marks, but also stretches the abdominal muscles beneath. In spite of diligent exercise after childbirth, the lax, flabby look of the abdomen can oftentimes remain. Even weight loss does not necessarily improve abdominal tone, because the laxness is not caused by fat or lack of muscle tone. Instead, this laxity occurs because the connective tissue that surround the abdominal muscles have also been stretched.
In addition, the breasts grow rapidly and dramatically during pregnancy, with similar cosmetic consequences. Even after you have given birth and are finished nursing your child, the breasts might remain loose and saggy, though they have returned to their original size.
How a Mommy Makeover Works
A Mommy Makeover combines cosmetic surgery procedures to help you get back to your pre-baby figure. The most popular combination of procedures restore firmness to both the breasts and abdomen. However, some people include CosmoPen, injectables and facial procedures as well. A breast lift, possibly combined with a breast augmentation, lifts the breasts and restores their original shape, size and tone. A tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck removes excess skin, repairs stretched or torn muscles and connective tissue, and removes lingering fat from the abdominal area. Some women also choose to have thigh lifts or buttock lifts as part of a Mommy Makeover. Discussing your goals with Dr Haque will help you determine what combination of procedures will be best for you. If you are not ready for the full mommy makeover, then perhaps BodyTite or FaceTite would be a way to tighten skin and remove fat in a less invasive way. Of course the results wouldn’t be quite as good as surgery, but Dr. Haque can review that with you during your consultation.
