I Want My Body Back After Baby: What Can I Do?
Chubby baby cheeks are irresistible, but the loose abdominal skin and saggy breasts that remain with Mom’s body post-baby are a little less cute. If you want to get your body back into pre-baby shape after pregnancy, come see Dr. Waldorf. She’ll work with you to create a personalized plan to restore your body to its pre-baby glory. Having a baby doesn’t mean you can’t have a great body, too. Mommy… it’s time for a makeover.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take their toll on the body. A Mommy Makeover uses a customized combination of cosmetic treatments to reverse some of the negative aesthetic effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Your treatment plan will be customized to your specific needs and concerns. We’ll do our best to minimize the number of surgeries needed and to combine procedures when we can safely do so.
A mommy makeover can consist of several different cosmetic treatments including:
- Tummy Tuck: Stretched out abdominal skin and muscles are common after pregnancy. A tummy tuck can tighten the skin and muscles for a flatter stomach. We can also remove excess skin and fat from this area. Many patients notice a decrease in the number of stretch marks they have after surgery, since some may be removed as Dr. Waldorf removes excess skin.
- Liposuction: Many women find that they develop localized pockets of stubborn fat during and after pregnancy. We can use liposuction to remove this fat and to reshape and sculpt the body. The thigh area and the abdominal area are both popular liposuction sites during a mommy makeover.
- Breast Surgeries: Pregnancy and breastfeeding forever alters the breasts. We can address these changes with various breast surgeries. A breast lift can reduce sagging and reshape the breasts for perkier, post-pregnancy breasts. Breast augmentation can increase your breast size and restore breast volume. Breast reduction can reduce the size of the breasts in women with large natural breasts. We can combine any of these surgeries to create your ideal result.
- Labiaplasty: The labia can become stretched out and misshapen after pregnancy. Labiaplasty can create a more attractive shape for this area. This surgery can help women to regain confidence in their bodies after baby. Our all-female staff understands that this is a delicate topic and will help you to feel comfortable throughout the process.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover can transform your body after baby, but it isn’t for everyone. You’ll want to wait until you’ve finished having children. The results from surgeries will be reversed if you have a pregnancy after your Mommy Makeover. Dr. Waldorf can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for surgery.
