Becoming a new mother is an amazing experience but it can also be hard in many ways. The stresses of raising a newborn can be difficult as well as dealing with the changes your body went through during pregnancy and childbirth. Many women experience changes in their breasts, midsection, thighs, and overall weight because of pregnancy. However, at New Image Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside offers a mommy makeover to help you address your body contouring needs and help you restore your figure.
Pregnancy and childbirth can be an amazing time for a woman. It can also be a time of great change for a woman's body. As your unborn child grows, so too must your body to make room for your child's development. On top of physical changes such as weight gain, your hormones also change as your body varies its processes to accommodate your growing child.
After having children, you may find that there are several parts of your body that just aren't the same. Even with diet and exercise, you may have patches of excess fat, bulges that won't go away, and changes to your breasts that you don't appreciate. The good news is that our plastic surgoen, Dr. Roberta Gartside, can perform a mommy makeover to remedy all of these issues. A mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring procedures that will help you love your post-pregnancy body. Please take this quiz to find out if a mommy makeover is right for you:
Which procedures are commonly included in a mommy makeover?
The mommy makeover procedure is designed to address those areas most impacted by pregnancy and nursing. This can include weakened and separated abdominal muscles, stubborn fat deposits in the stomach, buttock, back and thighs, loss of breast volume and lift, and facial sagging and fatigue. Because many of these things are simply a natural part of pregnancy, it is best to wait to undergo the mommy makeover procedure until you are finished having children.
