Having children is a joyous experience, however, many mothers are left with unwanted changes to their bodies for years to come. After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the entire body can be affected. However, with a mommy makeover, Dr. Hardesty can perform several plastic surgery procedures at once in order to help you restore your pre-baby body and confidence! The mommy makeover is highly customizable, but here are some of the most common procedures to include:
The abdominal area is one part of the body that is highly affected by pregnancy, as it stretches to make room for your growing baby. However, after childbirth, you may have a hard time restoring your midsection despite dieting and exercise. With a tummy tuck included in your mommy makeover, Dr. Hardesty can remove stretched skin and tighten the underlying tissue to help you achieve a toned appearance. There are some potential risks, however, we offer techniques to reduce tummy tuck risks.
Weight gain is essential during pregnancy, but after childbirth, you may experience lingering pockets of stubborn fat. This is why many women add liposuction to their mommy makeover procedure. Liposuction can be used on virtually any part of the body and can be used to optimize the results of other contouring procedures. Using tiny incisions and the use of a cannula, stubborn fat is removed for precise contouring.
Before & After
The breasts are another area highly affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Many women experience some volume loss and sagging that can be addressed with a breast augmentation. The breast augmentation provides breast implant options to restore breast size, shape, and symmetry.
Your breasts become larger during the pregnancy process, and for some, their natural breast size is never restored. Following pregnancy, some patients wonder how to reduce breast size. With a breast reduction, we recontour the breasts to achieve a more balanced figure.
The breast lift can be performed alone to address sagging, or can be combined with the breast augmentation or reduction. With a breast lift, Dr. Hardesty returns the breasts to a youthful position, removing excess skin to eliminate sagging.
