Mommy Wants a Makeover
- Posted on: Mar 15 2020
Having children is rough business. And that’s only counting the effect on your wallet and sanity. The effects on the mother’s body are as dramatic as the colors thrown around at ColorPalooza next month in Lewisville.
The gain and loss of weight from pregnancy and breastfeeding simply aren’t kind to mothers. Here some of the issues that face a woman afterwards:
- Droopy or deflated breasts
- Reduced volume in the breasts
- Excess fatty tissue in the abdomen
- Stretch marks
- Weakened and separated abdominal muscles
But nothing says a woman has to put up with this stuff. Putting up with a small child is enough! A mommy makeover with Dr. Lipton can give you back the body you used to have, and maybe even then some.
What procedures are involved in a mommy makeover?
As with all of his surgeries, Dr. Lipton approaches each procedure as unique to that patient. Every mommy makeover will have some adjustments based on the individual needs of the patient, but these are the basic procedures typically involved.
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Pregnancy and breastfeeding lead to sagging breasts. A breast lift brings the breasts back up to their former higher position on the chest, removing excess sagging skin.
- Breast Augmentation
Though not all women opt to have augmentation as part of their makeover, most do because breastfeeding and a breast lift usually take volume from the breasts. After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breast contour is simply less full. Adding implants after the incisions are made for a breast lift is a simple extension of the surgery, as Dr. Lipton can use the incisions already made for the lift to place the implants.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
When the stomach area stretches with pregnancy, in more cases than not the skin never recovers to its previous state of tightness. Known colloquially as a stomach pooch, it’s a common aftereffect of pregnancy and a tummy tuck removes it. In many cases, the stomach muscles actually become separated, and Dr. Lipton returns them to the center and re-attaches them.
No matter how much you exercise and watch what you eat, people are prone to pockets of fat in certain spots like the inner thighs, abdomen, even under the chin. Liposuction removes those pockets permanently.
