Taking Care of Mommy With A Mommy Makeover
For many women, pregnancy and childbirth bring an unmatched sense of joy and accomplishment. And while having children and being a mother is incredibly rewarding, a mother’s body pays a price to bring a new bundle of joy into the world. Pregnancy and breastfeeding force a woman’s body to change, stretching muscles and skin as the baby grows. The resilience of a woman’s body and its ability to return to its pre-pregnancy shape are based on several factors including genetics, diet, exercise before and after pregnancy, and health conditions during pregnancy. While the resilience of each woman’s body varies, many women experience drooping or deflated breasts, enlarged areolas, severe stretch marks and loose, saggy skin, or a bulging tummy where abdominal muscles remained separated. Women that deliver via C-section may have additional troubled areas such as the “shelf” of extra skin that hangs down over the incision scar. Unfortunately, these changes can be embarrassing and extremely frustrating to moms that aren’t getting results with diet and exercise. Fortunately, Dr. Shapiro can help women reclaim their pre-pregnancy body with a Mommy Makeover.
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of complementary procedures that address the common trouble areas that result from pregnancy and nursing, helping moms regain their self-confidence and restoring their youthful, pre-baby bodies. A Mommy Makeover is one of the most customizable cosmetic surgery procedures available because it combines multiple procedures into a complete restorative operation. The typical Mommy Makeover consists of a breast lift, tummy tuck, and body contouring. However, while some women prefer to achieve their pre-baby body, others choose to add procedures that make them feel even better about their bodies than they did prior to pregnancy! A woman may elect to add a procedure such as a breast augmentation to restore volume and youthful position to the breasts.
The results of a Mommy Makeover are truly transformative as these combined procedures are highly effective for restoring a post-pregnancy body to its pre-pregnancy condition. The breasts will sit higher with youthful shape and fullness, the abdominal muscles will be pulled tighter, stretch marks will be reduced, and loose skin and stubborn fat deposits will be a thing of the past. Most importantly, Dr. Shapiro creates beautiful, natural looking results, which means no one will know how you look so amazing unless you want them to!
In general, patients can return to work and resume normal activity 10 to 14 days after surgery and exercise and more strenuous activity may be resumed in approximately six weeks.
You’ve happily made plenty of sacrifices for motherhood, but your self-confidence doesn’t need to be one of them!
