A mommy makeover is a great way to reclaim your pre-baby body. When you finish breastfeeding, you may start to pay more attention to your appearance and realize that a regimen of exercise and diet has not been enough to give you the figure you want. A mommy makeover can combine multiple cosmetic procedures in one surgery session in order to enhance different areas of the body. Some of the most common procedures performed include a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation.
A tummy tuck makes the stomach muscles firm and removes loose skin and some excess fat. Depending on the condition of your skin and muscles, you may only require a mini tummy tuck. In some cases, liposuction is used in conjunction with a tummy tuck. It all depends on the unique situation.
Breast enhancement may include a breast lift and/or an augmentation. For most women after pregnancy, the breasts have lost volume and may be sagging. This happens because of the hormonal changes during pregnancy that stop after delivery and breastfeeding, leaving the breast tissue deflated. A breast lift pulls the skin up so the breasts have a higher position.
For many women, a breast lift is not enough to regain the size and shape of their breasts. In this case, breast implants may be recommended to increase the fullness of the post-pregnancy breasts.
If you are done having children, schedule a consultation at the office of Zachary Farris, MD to learn more about how a mommy makeover can benefit you. Some women prefer to spend some time doing their best to improve their appearance through diet and exercise. However, these alone may not produce the results you want, especially in the breasts and abdomen, where the skin has been stretched.
You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if your pregnancy has changed the size and/or shape of your breasts, if your abdomen sags and has excess fat and if diet and exercise have not sufficiently removed the fat from stubborn areas. Of course, the best way to determine if you qualify for a mommy makeover is to schedule an appointment at our office in Dallas. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Farris.
