As the years have passed, some mothers have noticed that multiple pregnancies have packed on the pounds and negatively transformed their bodies. The breasts are left sagging and lifeless. The stomach develops loose, hanging skin and weak abdominal muscles. There is unwanted fat along stubborn areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, and hips. Many women have trouble getting rid of the havocs following childbirth with traditional weight-loss methods. When diet and exercise have failed to provide you with a post-childbearing tune-up, it may be time for a Mommy Makeover. By combining one or more Mommy Makeover procedures, mothers can regain their pre-pregnancy bodies to look and feel better and restore their confidence.

How Can a Mommy Makeover Help You?

A Mommy Makeover can be individually designed to fit a woman’s goals and anatomy. Different areas of the body can be addressed to create a more attractive and youthful physique. One or more procedures can be performed in-office under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, and patients can go home within 90 minutes after the completion of their surgery. Most patients can drive within nine days and can resume exercise within a month. Once fully recovered, patients often experience amazing results and are happy to show off their body, whether underneath clothing or unveiled.

Before and After Breast LiftRestore the Breasts

One aspect of the body that can make a woman feel like a woman are the breasts. Breast augmentation surgery and/or breast lift surgery can be performed to create a more flattering breast size and shape that is complementary to the entire body. Breast lift surgery can be performed to remove excess skin and tissue to lift and reshape the breasts. Women who have lost breast volume can restore their size and shape with breast augmentation surgery. Saline or silicone breast implants are inserted above or beneath the chest muscle through an incision around the areola, within the breast crease, or within the armpit. Patients can be happy knowing their breasts look more youthful and attractive.

Flatten the Abdomen and Tighten the Abdominal Muscles

Due to the abdomen expanding to make room for a growing baby, many women find that their abdomen is never the same after pregnancy. Some women present bulging fatty tissue and sagging skin in the abdominal region that is impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise. Tummy tuck surgery is an ideal procedure for flattening the abdomen. By tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess fat and skin, Dr. Taranow can reshape and recontour the abdomen. Mothers can improve the overall appearance of their midsection and improve the firmness of their abdomen.

Remove Stubborn Fat

When a woman is carrying a baby, she will begin to store excess fat. The majority of the unwanted fat can be targeted without surgery. However, the older a person gets, the harder it is for them to lose weight and achieve their ideal body size. Liposuction is commonly performed on the abdomen but can be used to target nearly any area of the body post-pregnancy.
