Mommy makeover surgery is designed to address the physical changes caused by carrying and having babies. Because every woman experiences these things slightly differently, the techniques used for individual surgical procedures must be customized to her exact needs. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Brueck takes the time necessary to understand the needs and desires of each patient, enabling him to focus each mommy makeover procedure on those areas that have caused the most concern.
Following pregnancy, excess fat, loose and sagging skin, stretch marks, and similar issues are common. So too is a condition called diastasis recti, in which abdominal muscles separate, increasing risks for hernia and chronic low back pain. Tummy tuck surgery addresses all of these things.
During tummy tuck surgery, liposuction is used to eliminate stubborn fat deposits, separated abdominal muscles are reattached, and unnecessary skin is removed to produce a toned, shapely, and attractive physique. What’s more, stretch marks are often eliminated in the process, helping to restore a smooth and unblemished appearance to the belly, hips, and waist.
Pregnancy and nursing can change the size, shape, symmetry, volume, and lift of the breasts. Some women may also experience nipple shifting as the breasts change size. There are several procedures to address these issues.
Popular options include:
- Breast Augmentation to restore volume, improve symmetry, and enhance the size and shape of the breasts
- Breast Lift to address ptosis, produce a firm and lifted breast mound, and address nipple placement
- Breast Reduction to restore comfort and symmetry to overly-large or pendulous breasts
Fat grafting for breast augmentation has grown increasingly popular in recent years. With this method of breast enhancement, your own fat is used to produce a fuller and more symmetrical bust. Safe, effective, and long-lasting, fat transfer breast augmentation is often a good fit for women who desire a natural look and would prefer to avoid breast implants. It pairs well with mommy makeover surgery, during which fat is likely being removed already.
