For Mother’s Day, Consider a Mommy Makeover

We all know mothers make many sacrifices for their children, both big and small. As we celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought it appropriate to talk about women’s options post-pregnancy to help them feel more confident about their bodies.

The joys of motherhood are abundant, but the impact pregnancy has on a woman’s body isn’t always so joyful. I see, first hand, the toll that pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on a woman’s body. The great news is that there are options for women who wish to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies with a combination of procedures now commonly known as a Mommy Makeover.

Mommy Makeovers are as unique to each mother as the children who were born from each pregnancy. One woman’s mommy makeover may include a thigh liposuction and tummy tuck, while another’s may focus more on the breasts with a breast lift and/or augmentation.

Some women gain a lot of weight during pregnancy, especially around the midsection. This fat can be incredibly stubborn and unresponsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction provides a wonderful option to help achieve a more desirable contour.

Pregnancy can also leave some women with excess skin and stretch marks once the baby is born. A tummy tuck performed by an experienced and board certified plastic surgeon can help women regain their beach-body confidence by eliminating both excess skin and stretch marks.

There’s no doubt that a mommy makeover can do wonders! If you know a woman who is contemplating a mommy makeover, or if you yourself would like to discuss your post-baby options, please schedule a consultation today. My team and I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about you and your goals.
