Pregnancy and giving birth to a beautiful baby are defining moments in the lives of many women. Carrying and delivering a baby is hard work that can leave your body looking and feeling very different from its pre-pregnancy state. Mommy makeover surgery turns back the clock and makes you feel like yourself again.
What is Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Mommy makeover surgery aims to correct some of the less appealing body changes that happen during pregnancy and childbirth. It often includes treatments to the breast and abdomen.
While reversing some of pregnancy’s impacts can increase a person’s self-confidence, there are some medical benefits to the surgery once you’ve finished having children.
Loose muscle tissue and sagging skin are common complaints from people who have experienced significant weight loss or given birth. Time can sometimes improve the appearance of this area. However, when your skin and muscles are stretched past their capacity to snap back, surgical repair may be necessary to regain a flat stomach.
Typical mommy makeover surgery involves adjustments to the abdominal region using options such as a tummy tuck and liposuction. These procedures have been shown to help improve back pain and incontinence problems after childbirth.
It’s no surprise that the hormones necessary to grow and nurture a human being can significantly impact breast tissue. These effects increase if the individual chooses to breastfeed after giving birth.
Lack of breast volume and sagging breasts are common issues addressed with mommy makeover surgery. Some women lose symmetry in their breasts and may find one side is substantially larger. Such issues can affect your posture and cause back pain. Significant breast sagging can also cause problems like skin rashes. Dr. Salzman routinely performs breast augmentation and breast lift surgery to correct these concerns.
Stretch Marks on Hips and Thighs
Stretch marks are scars that result from rapid weight gain and are a familiar aftereffect of pregnancy. Depending on their location, Dr. Salzman may be able to remove them permanently.
Body confidence is a common problem post-pregnancy. The removal of stretch marks is an aesthetic enhancement that boosts the psychological well-being of many patients.
