After giving birth, it can be difficult for your body to bounce back to what it looked like pre-baby. Many women put themselves on harsh diets and unrealistic workout plans, hoping to see dramatic results in their body. With a new baby, you are most likely already sleep deprived and want to spend as much time as possible with your little one. Many of the changes that happen to a woman’s body during pregnancy cannot be fixed with diet and exercise alone. This is why the Plastic Surgery Group offers a special comprehensive plastic surgery package for moms: the mommy makeover.
The mommy makeover is a bundle of plastic surgery and rejuvenation procedures that work to completely restore a woman’s body after she has had children. These procedures can be customized. However, we have a list of some of the most popular procedures women choose to undergo. The benefit of the mommy makeover is that women are able to feel more confident in their body than they did prior to getting pregnant and giving birth. This allows them to focus on life after giving birth and less on unrealistic dieting and unattainable body goals.
One of the most common side effects of pregnancy is droopy breasts. Breast rejuvenation is the perfect answer to this issue, as it will restore your chest to look more similar to the way it did pre-pregnancy (sometimes even better!)
If you are happy with your breast size, we may recommend just a breast lift to create a perkier breast that is similar to your pre-pregnancy breast appearance. Some women may choose to get a breast augmentation and a breast lift to achieve the optimal results.
An abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is one of those most common procedures included in the mommy makeover package. During this procedure, your surgeon will first perform liposuction to remove excess fat (this step is optional). Next, a horizontal incision is made in the lower abdomen, allowing the surgeon to repair the underlying muscles. Finally, the doctor will pull the skin tight and stitch the patient closed, leaving the patient with a smooth, sculpted stomach.
The abdominoplasty procedure is ideal for women who are done having babies, as another pregnancy could stretch out the repaired skin. This procedure is excellent for eliminating belly fat, reducing stretch marks, and achieving a slimmer waistline.
The surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Group use a specialized technique to shorten the recovery from this procedure.
Body contouring encompasses a range of procedures that allow plastic surgeons to sculpt and contour virtually any part of your body. The method chosen will depend on the part of your body that needs work, and the level of results you are expecting.
While some of these are surgical, such as an arm lift, thigh lift, or body lift, we also offer non-surgical body contouring options such as CoolSculpting and Radiofrequency Skin Tightening. Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved procedure freezes and destroys fat cells, and can have incredible results for a patient who does not want or is not a candidate for a surgical procedure. This is perfect for a mom who was fit prior to pregnancy, and wants to lose that extra bit of belly fat. Radiofrequency is another method used at The Plastic Surgery Group to tighten skin, improve the appearance of cellulite, and reduce small amounts of fatty tissue.
If you are feeling self-conscious following the birth of your child, a mommy makeover is the perfect way to get your body back to how it looked pre-pregnancy or better. At Plastic Surgery Group in New Jersey, we love helping new moms get their confidence back and feel like themselves again.
