‘Mommy Makeover’ Key Procedures
Being a mom is a lot of work. With all the time and effort that you put into caring for your children and building a family, it can be all too easy to forget to take care of yourself. A “Mommy Makeover” is something you can do just for you, and is specifically designed for busy moms in San Diego. For liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation or breast lift, or a treatment to refresh your complexion, there’s no better option than a Mommy Makeover to help restore your appearance.
Although being a mother is one of the greatest gifts in the world, pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can take a dramatic toll on your body. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscle walls are stretched out. Later in life, as the muscles slacken more with age and gravity, this can cause a paunch well before middle age. Similarly, breastfeeding causes the breasts to swell with milk for many months. After weaning, many moms find their breasts look lower, saggy or deflated.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
Each Mommy Makeover is individually tailored to your specific needs. One mom may not have had problems regaining her flat tummy, while another mom would benefit from a tummy tuck to tighten abdominal muscles and restore her pre-pregnancy slimness. Some women may only need a breast lift to recover their former silhouette, while other moms will need breast augmentation. San Diego moms can rest assured that Dr. John T. Alexander will arrange for the right combination of procedures to help you feel and look your best.
Common procedures performed during Mommy Makeovers include:
• Tummy Tucks: Through this surgical procedure, also called abdominoplasty, the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened, excess skin and fat are removed, and the skin is re-stretched to become taut and slim again, and suitable even for bikini season in San Diego. A tummy tuck will eliminate the post-pregnancy paunch, which may show up even years after bearing children, and remains despite a healthy and active lifestyle.
• Liposuction: Through liposuction, fat deposits around the abdomen, upper arms and neck can be removed permanently. This helps moms look younger and slimmer, and is perfect for those problem areas that have not been able to be resolved through diet and exercise alone.
• Breast Enhancement: Whether a breast lift to restore the breasts to their former perkiness or an augmentation to improve your natural assets, breast enhancement can help your breasts look full and sexy again, no matter how many children you’ve had. If your breasts have become uncomfortably large following your childbearing years, a breast reduction can help you slim down and eliminate back and neck problems.
