At Advanced Aesthetic Associates, we often consult with women who have sacrificed a lot for their families, and are ready to do something for themselves. Although the process of becoming a mom is a wonderful event, it often permanently affects a woman's body, leaving many women struggling in vain to get back to their pre-pregnancy shape. Even though you may have lost all of your pregnancy weight, you may be left with body changes that prevent you from buttoning your favorite jeans or feeling confident in a bathing suit. These changes often include:
- Stretched, sagging skin
- Protruding abdomen
- Drooping, diminished breasts
The changes that occur during pregnancy cause the breast and abdominal skin to develop small internal tears called striae or stretch marks, which do not go away without surgery. The breast position, shape and contour, changes from youthful and perky to flat and sagging. The flat tummy that was once there develops a roundness or "pooch," as many women describe it, that does not go away despite diet and exercise.
About Mommy Makeover
A Mommy Makeover at our Phoenix and Scottsdale practice is a set of combined cosmetic procedures that will help return your body to its pre-pregnancy shape. The most common combination is cosmetic breast surgery and a tummy tuck, which may also include liposuction of the hips and flanks. The abdominoplasty and liposuction can give you back your smooth, flat tummy and eliminate the "muffin top" that came with having kids. For breast enhancement, many women opt for breast lift to get back their more youthful looking breasts, in some cases enhancing volume by adding breast augmentation. Women who choose tummy tuck and breast enhancement procedures can eliminate stretch marks, and enjoy a more toned, youthful body contour.
Other procedures are also available for the mom who wants to look her best. Some women choose to undergo facial rejuvenation procedures at the same time as their body contouring surgery. It is not uncommon for women to get injectable treatments to enhance the results of their Mommy Makeover. During your consultation, Dr. Prichard, Dr. Repta, Dr. Andres, or Dr. Bajnrauh will help you decide on a treatment plan that best meets your goals and expectations, and helps you to look and feel your best.
