Mommy Makeover Breast & Body

During pregnancy, a woman experiences an increase in the size of her breasts and abdomen. Her skin is not only stretched, but her body actually grows more skin.  Following delivery, a woman’s ability to return to her pre-pregnancy physique depends upon how drastic these changes were and how resilient her skin is.  Breast feeding may lead to significant changes in the breasts.  Often this results in small, sagging breasts and excess skin and fat of the abdomen.  These problems may be corrected by a combination of the following procedures.  For many patients, the breast and abdominal procedure may be performed at the same time.

Mommy Makeover

Mommy Breast Augmentation

Women who desire breast enhancement following childbirth and breast feeding face different challenges than women who have never experienced significant changes in their breast size.  Mothers who have had an increase in breast size, followed by a loss of breast volume post-partum are often left with small breasts that appear to sag. With breast augmentation surgery, an implant may be used to restore breast volume and give the breasts a lifted appearance.  Excess skin may be removed and the nipple position may be elevated at the time of the augmentation, in a manner to conceal the scar.  Overall, the breasts are fuller, lifted, and rejuvenated.

Mommy Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Many women experience dramatic changes in their breasts during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.  After delivery and breast feeding, the breasts may not return to their pre-pregnancy shape and size.  Often, the breasts lose volume and the skin becomes loose.  Some women will develop stretch marks of their breasts.  Other women may experience an increase in the size of their breasts, which remains following delivery.  This may lead to problems with neck, back and shoulder pain.

Following pregnancy and breast feeding, some women develop small, deflated, sagging breasts.  During a breast lift (mastopexy), the breasts are raised to their original position by removing excess skin, correcting the position and size of the nipples, and internally supporting the breast tissue, to create firm and perky breasts.  Breasts implants may be used with a breast lift to increase breast fullness.

Mommy Breast Reduction

Many women experience dramatic changes in their breasts during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.  After delivery and breast feeding, the breasts may not return to their pre-pregnancy shape and size.  Often, the breasts lose volume and the skin becomes loose.  Some women will develop stretch marks of their breasts.  Other women may experience an increase in the size of their breasts, which remains following delivery.  This may lead to problems with neck, back and shoulder pain.

Some women develop larger breasts during pregnancy and never loose the excess weight of their breasts following delivery.  These large, pendulous breasts may cause health problems, including back pain, deep grooves in their shoulders, from heavy bra straps, and severe rashes under the breasts.  With a breast reduction, excess breast tissue is removed to create smaller, lifted, rejuvenated breasts.

Mommy Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Throughout pregnancy, the abdomen expands to accommodate the baby’s growth.  This process is greater with twin and triplet pregnancies.  The body not only stretches the abdominal skin, but women actually grow more skin.  After delivery, the expanded skin does not always contract back to the pre-pregnancy waistline and the extra skin remains.  It is very common for women to struggle with trying to lose the “baby weight”.  However, the extra skin cannot be lost through diet and exercise alone.  The following surgical options help restore the body.

With pregnancy, the abdominal skin and muscles are stretched and the body grows more skin.    A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is the most efficient way to restore a flat abdomen and waistline.  In this procedure, the abdominal muscles are tightened and the excess fat and skin are removed.  For many women, this removes all of their stretch marks and creates a younger appearance of the abdomen.  During a tummy tuck, the scar of a caesarian section is removed.  Liposuction is used to contour the waist.

Mommy Modified Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

It’s common knowledge that no two pregnancies are the same.  The same principle is applied to abdominal contouring.  Women who have experienced minor changes in their bodies with pregnancy may require smaller procedures to restore their bodies.  This allows us to rejuvenate the body with minimal scarring.  Dr. Stiles is able to customize the traditional abdominoplasty to meet the unique needs of each patient. Read More Here.

Mommy Smartlipo with Liposuction

Liposuction may be performed to remove excess fat, when the skin is in good condition.     Traditional and power assisted liposuction remove fat cells between the muscles and skin with vacuum pressure.   Smartlipo laser lipolysis uses laser energy to destroy fat cells so that the liquefied fat may be easily removed with liposuction.  The combination of Smartlipo and liposuction causes less bruising and less trauma to the surrounding tissues, which helps our patients recover faster.  Smartlipo also helps to tighten the skin to create a smooth appearance to the skin.
