Top Body Parts Enhanced by a Mommy Makeover Surgery
Have you decided to take some much needed and well-deserved time to focus on yourself now that the kids are a bit older? There’s nothing wrong with that, after all, having children can change your body in ways you never thought possible before you got pregnant. These concerns can be a thing of the past once you undergo a mommy makeover. Whether it is your breast, stomach, or thighs, or your skin over areas affected by childbirth, the results from a mommy makeover can leave you looking better and feeling great.
The plastic surgeons with Austin-Weston located in Reston, Virginia, have compiled a list of the most common procedures that are requested during a mommy makeover procedure. Learn just how much a mommy makeover can dramatically transform your body.
Since a good amount of physical changes during pregnancy take place in the tummy area, it’s only normal to want to improve this area after having children. Stretch marks, loose and excess skin, isolated pockets of fat, and that new “pooch” are all frequent complaints women post-pregnancy. A C-section can also make these problems more complicated because the abdominal muscles are separated, making it harder for you to bounce back after childbirth. A tummy tuck procedure consists of removing the excess skin and then tightening and restoring the weakened or separated muscles. The goal of a tummy tuck is to flatten and shape the abdomen leaving it firmer and more toned. There are a number of different types of tummy tuck procedures depending on the condition of your abdomen and your personal aesthetic goals.
Cosmetic Breast Surgery
A woman’s breasts can change drastically after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. A breast augmentation procedure is one of the most popular procedures requested in our Northern Virginia office during a mommy makeover. Breasts are often left looking deflated and begin to sag or droop, especially after breastfeeding. Implants can help make the breasts appear fuller, while a breast lift can also reposition the breasts to regain that perky appearance they once had. Some patients also consider a breast reduction procedure after having children. This is common in women who have gained excess weight during pregnancy and their breasts are larger and starting to cause other issues like back and neck pain, and painful rashes under the breast crease.
One of the best ways to remove stubborn, post-pregnancy fat is through a liposuction procedure. This cosmetic surgery focuses on removing excess fat deposits and contouring the body so it appears slimmer and more proportionate. The abdomen, lower back, thighs, hips, and buttocks are some of the most popular areas that women in Northern Virginia and metropolitan Washington DC request to have liposuction performed on. This procedure is also a good alternative for women who otherwise cannot get rid of the stubborn fat through diet and exercise alone.
Labiaplasty is a procedure that can correct many issues that arise after undergoing a vaginal delivery. Many women experience significant stretching and tearing during pregnancy and childbirth, which leads to many changes in the labia including the size and the amount of excess skin or vaginal tissue that is present. A labiaplasty will correct the size and shape of the labia and help the inner and outer labia appear more symmetrical. Numerous patients who have undergone this procedure have commented that sex is no longer painful and they no longer experience discomfort when working out or wearing tight fitting pants. Labiaplasty is one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgeries and is quickly become a part of many mommy makeovers we perform.
Brazilian butt lift
A backside that has started to become wider, flatter, or has even begun to sag and become deflated is another common “side effect” of pregnancy. Excess fat from pregnancy may reside on another area of the body, but in many cases, it can disappear in the buttocks. A Brazilian butt lift solves this problem by adding volume to an otherwise flat rear end. A Brazilian butt lift is performed by using liposuction to remove excess fat from other areas of the body, such as the thighs, and then re-injecting the fat into the buttocks to create a fuller, shapelier, more defined look. Alternatives to a Brazilian butt lift require the use of implants to give you that plumper effect or scars related to a skin tightening procedure.
Many women notice a big change in their skin after having kids. The skin can appear less smooth as blemishes, and lines often become more prominent. Sometimes, women who come to our Northern Virginia plastic surgery office specifically request to have their face appear brighter and less tired. The surgeons at Austin-Weston offer multiple treatments that can solve these issues and leave your skin looking rejuvenated and vibrant. Laser treatments, peels, BOTOX, and fillers are available to help reduce lines and wrinkles, or add some much needed volume to the face. Best of all, these treatments are nonsurgical and provide quick results.
If any of these procedures sound like something that you’re interested in, then give our Reston office a call to schedule a consultation. You’ll be able to meet with one of our highly skilled surgeons and discuss your problem areas and desired results. Your surgeon will perform a physical examination and give you possible solutions, individualizing your treatment plan with details, potential risks and recovery time.
