After pregnancy and breastfeeding, it is common for women to have deflated breasts, sagging breasts, stretch marks on the lower half of the tummy, weak abdominal muscles, excess tummy skin, and/or stubborn fat deposits. To combat these unwanted changes brought about during the process of becoming a mother, Dr. Robert Spies offers the Mommy Makeover. The Mommy Makeover includes a customized set of procedures that are designed to improve your body shape in the ways that you need after pregnancy and nursing.
Procedures Commonly Included in the Mommy Makeover
Tummy tuck surgery targets the abdominal area. During the procedure, Dr. Spies removes excess skin and fat deposits left by pregnancy. He also tightens the underlying abdominal muscles that were loosened by pregnancy so that they are firm and taut as they likely were before you became a mother.
- Do I Need a Tummy Tuck? Like many mothers, you may need a tummy tuck to tighten loose stomach muscles and eliminate excess skin after pregnancy. If your stomach has retained its muscle strength, has little or no excess fat or skin, and has an appearance or shape you are satisfied with, you may not want to undergo tummy tuck surgery as part of your Mommy Makeover.
Breast augmentation can improve breast volume for women whose breasts have deflated after breastfeeding or pregnancy. Dr. Spies inserts breast implants into the breasts to fill in lost volume and create rounder, more attractive, and more youthful feminine curves.
- Do I Need Breast Augmentation? You may need breast implants if your breasts look deflated and lack youthful roundness and firmness. If you have always wished for larger breasts, this may be an excellent time to take advantage of the opportunity to undergo breast augmentation as a part of your Mommy Makeover.
A breast lift improves the shape, appearance, and position of breasts that have become saggy due to the pressure and weight of nursing. Dr. Spies performs breast lift surgery to restore youthful perkiness so you can look and feel more attractive and sexy with or without clothing.
- Do I Need a Breast Lift? You may need a breast lift if your breasts are sagging after pregnancy and nursing. If your breasts have not begun to sag or if you did not breastfeed your child(ren), you may wish to consider other procedures for your Mommy Makeover.
Liposuction eliminates excess fat from the body. Dr. Spies can perform liposuction nearly anywhere on your body to improve your body contour. During the procedure, he will use a suction device and a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to extract unwanted fat from the abdomen, back, thighs, buttocks, hips, flanks, and/or other areas of your body.
- Do I Need Liposuction? You may want to include liposuction as a part of your Mommy Makeover if you have pockets of stubborn fat on your body. This unwanted fat should be resistant to diet and exercise.
Tummy tuck surgery, breast augmentation surgery, breast lift surgery, and liposuction are commonly included in Mommy Makeover procedures.
