Pregnancy and childbirth change your shape, there’s no doubt about it. For some women, it seems like they can easily bounce back from this life experience. In other cases, restoring the tautness of the midsection and perkiness of the breasts seems all but impossible. Without a little help, this may actually be a true statement. This is why many women do get help in the form of a Mommy Makeover. If you are wondering what cosmetic plastic surgery could do for you, read on.
Reshape the Breasts
Breasts may grow several sizes during pregnancy, and then remain full during months of breastfeeding and continually fluctuating hormones. After life, and biochemistry, has settled into a new norm, the breasts may be left without the fullness you have come to appreciate. One aspect of the Mommy Makeover can be to lift the breasts, or to enhance their shape with implants. Patients of Dr. Trussler can choose between traditional saline or silicone implants, or the innovative new Gummy Bear Implant design.
Restore a Smooth Midsection
Tummy tuck surgery and / or liposuction are integral to the Mommy Makeover process. Liposuction can be performed alongside the tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, in order to remove excess fat cells that are lingering around the midsection, hips, buttocks, and back. The tummy tuck removes excess skin, and it also tightens lax muscles against the abdominal wall. This procedure does more than improve appearance; it can also decrease the risk of hernia and improve urinary incontinence.
Better Body Contours
All in all, the general idea behind a Mommy Makeover, or any body-shaping procedure, is to create symmetry and balance among all parts of the body. Losing pregnancy pounds is only one aspect of getting the shape you desire. Stubborn fat and loose muscles can be an enormous challenge that keeps you from feeling your best. With a little nip and tuck, the pounds and the inches can be decreased for good.
