Being able to bring life into this world is one of the greatest miracles of womanhood. Raising children can be an absolute joy, but the process of a pregnancy often causes a great deal of damage to the mother’s body. At Park Plaza Plastic Surgery, we aim to help mothers reclaim their bodies after having children. Dr. George Lefkovits offers the Mommy Makeover to help women repair damage caused to their bodies by pregnancy and from substantial weight gain/weight loss.
On average, women gain between 25 to 50 pounds during a pregnancy. This weight gain causes significant effects on the body, including stretching of the skin and muscles and a drooping of the breasts, as well as keeping additional unwanted weight on the breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs and buttock.
Typically, the mommy makeover incorporates a combination of the three primary areas:
Of all the areas impacted by pregnancy, the abdomen experiences the most changes. The abdomen experiences extreme stretching of the skin and abdominal muscles. After giving birth, the abdomen often remains loose. If you find yourself bothered by your abdomen, our plastic surgeon may recommend that you get a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and stretch marks, as well as tighten the abdominal muscles.
The extensiveness of your procedure depends solely on your individual needs. Typically, we recommend that women only pursue this procedure after having finished their last pregnancy.
The breasts are another part of the body that struggles after pregnancy. While pregnant, the breasts fill with breast milk, causing them to stretch and sag. Breastfeeding can also cause changes to the breasts, occasionally leaving them uneven and asymmetrical. The breasts can also become loose and somewhat deflated after having children. After giving the gift of life to your children, you may wish to restore and enhance your breasts. Our plastic surgeon can treat you to a breast augmentation or breast lift to enhance the breasts, renewing their shape, position and fullness on the chest.
Some women have found that their buttocks lose volume or become saggy after having children. The skin can loosen around the buttock, leaving you with an area you don’t feel confident in. If you are interested in boosting your buttock in a natural-looking way, we recommend trying the Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure can leave you feeling more attractive in your skin.
