Your body undergoes many changes during pregnancy and you may be left with stretched skin, drooping breasts, and pockets of stubborn fat after the pregnancy pounds have come off. We offer mommy makeover packages at our practice, an attractive option for many moms that want to get their figure back and feel good about themselves again. The mommy makeover may consist of two or more targeted procedures to address the effects of pregnancy.
Reasons to Undergo a Mommy Makeover
If you have been feeling self-conscious about your appearance after having the baby and are not getting the results you want with your current fitness regimen, talk to Dr. McCluskey about the benefits of a mommy makeover. Many patients undergo a mommy makeover to restore and enhance their figure after pregnancy has taken its toll on the body. You may be an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover if you have:
- Loose and sagging skin around the midsection
- Drooping or sagging breasts
- Stubborn fatty pockets
- Very large or very small breasts
Dr. McCluskey will customize your procedure based on your individual needs and goals. We can discuss different options during your consultation.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
The most common types of mommy makeover procedures include:
Breast Reduction Surgery
Even though you may have lost some weight after pregnancy, your breast size may have increased. If you are uncomfortable with having larger breasts, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction. Breast reduction surgery can alleviate tension and pain in the upper body and help you maintain a more proportionate figure.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
The appearance of the abdomen and midsection may have completely changed after pregnancy. If your stomach muscles have stretched or become weak after pregnancy, you will need surgery to restore the abdominal wall. A tummy tuck can tighten the muscles and flatten the abdomen to create a more attractive-looking midsection.
You may be left with some stubborn pockets of fat after pregnancy-related weight gain around the hips, thighs, buttocks, waist, and arms. We can target these areas with liposuction, a body sculpting procedure that reduces fat cells.
If your breasts have become smaller after pregnancy or you notice they are sagging or drooping, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery. Breast implants can restore the natural contours of your breast and give you a more youthful figure.
