Bringing a baby into the world is an incredibly exciting journey — in just nine short months, your body shifts and changes to accommodate your growing fetus. While you welcome your new bundle of joy with open arms, you may be less enthusiastic about the aftermath in your body.
Luckily, we have a way (well, several ways) to get you back to your pre-pregnancy body through a Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover is also great for patients that have experienced significant weight loss.
At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, under the expert guidance of Dr. Jeff Angobaldo, we offer an extensive array of cosmetic options — both surgical and nonsurgical — that are designed to bring out the best in your body. As an example, if you’re done having children, we can combine several of our innovative techniques to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy glory (and even make a few improvements over the old model!) with a Mommy Makeover.
If you miss your pre-preggo body, here’s how our Mommy Makeover can help.
Bringing your chest profile back
Some of the most dramatic changes in your body during and after pregnancy occur in your breasts. Toward the end of your pregnancy, your breasts swell in size as they prepare themselves to feed your child. Once your baby is born, your breasts remain enlarged as you breastfeed.
Once your baby is weaned, your breasts shrink again, but they often take on a very different shape and position from when you started. In some cases, your breasts may droop in a condition called ptosis, which is caused by overstretched skin and ligaments.
You may also end up with smaller, uneven, or hollowed breasts as fat is slow to return to these areas. Rounding out the list of problems, you may be left with overly large nipples.
To address these concerns, we offer both a breast lift to reposition your breasts higher on your chest and a breast augmentation to add volume to your breasts. We can also resize your nipples during these procedures. When you come in, we can decide which approach would make the most sense for your total Mommy Makeover plan.
Tackling the belly
Another unfortunate result of pregnancy is a belly that’s far less toned than it once was. For starters, pregnancy stretches your skin and sometimes separates your abdominal muscles. This can leave you with loose skin around your abdomen that no amount of exercise or firming creams can touch.
To restore tone to your belly, we offer a tummy tuck to repair your abdominal muscles and remove excess tissue.
And if your pregnancy has left you with stubborn pockets of fat in your belly, we can perform liposuction at the same time.
Give your butt a lift
During your pregnancy, your muscles shift to better carry the extra weight. This can mean that your once-muscular behind loses its tone and becomes flatter. To restore a little perkiness to your hind end, we offer a Brazilian butt lift, an innovative technique in which we remove fat from where you don’t want it and inject it into your buttocks.
The hidden problem
The last procedure we offer in a Mommy Makeover is a labiaplasty to tighten your genitalia. During delivery, your labia may have been overly stretched and the tissue may not have bounced back properly, This can leave you with excess tissues that are both unsightly and uncomfortable. With a labiaplasty, we remove the excess tissue to tighten your labia.
Every woman goes through different changes during pregnancy, so we tailor your Mommy Makeover to your unique concerns and goals. We make every effort to combine procedures where we can so you can get back to your pre-pregnancy body more quickly. It’s also important that you only undergo a Mommy Makeover once you’re sure you’re not going to get pregnant again.
