After nine months of pregnancy, your body can significantly change in appearance, leaving you feeling self-conscious. Being a new mom to a beautiful baby is rewarding, and mothers are often frustrated when their body doesn’t respond to exercise, and they are left with areas of unwanted fat, excess skin, and a saggy tummy area, covered with stretch marks. You’re juggling a lot – naptime, feeding time, changing diapers, and all the responsibilities and joys of motherhood, while trying to have time available to share with your significant other, work, or activities you enjoy. Pregnancy can bring many insecurities when the body changes, with sagging breasts, tummy, or excess fat that often has a negative impact on your feelings of self-confidence.
When the body does not respond to diet and exercise, it may be time to consider a Mommy Makeover. Dr. Kevin Rose is an experienced plastic surgeon who understands your post-pregnancy concerns and will help you restore a youthful firmness to your body.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover usually combines three different procedures that address a woman’s areas of concern. Combining three separate procedures into one surgery session makes restoring your body more convenient than having three different procedures. The surgical treatments most commonly performed during our Salt Lake City Mommy Makeover are:
A Mommy Makeover performed by our surgeon at The Rose Clinic will yield natural-looking results that can restore your body and give it the youthful look it had prior to pregnancy. After breastfeeding, many women are dismayed to see the condition of the breasts, which look deflated, saggy, or stretched. Restoring the breasts to that plump, youthful look, as well as trimming excess fat and saggy skin can restore your feelings of self-esteem and confidence.
In some cases, patients look better after our Utah Mommy Makeover procedure than they did before having kids.
Get a Flatter Stomach with a Tummy Tuck
The stomach area is often heavily affected by pregnancy. After the size and weight of the baby stretches the skin, the tummy area can sag, the muscles can split, or the skin is left baggy with unsightly stretch marks. A tummy tuck tightens and trims the tummy area, and restores the flat, trim look you want. Tummy tucks are performed to remove excess skin, fat, and tissue from the stomach area. An incision is made near the pubic bone, and our surgeon will tighten the muscle structure when needed, and then trim away excess skin, often the area with stretch marks. You can still receive a tummy tuck even if you had a Cesarean section, and the C-section scar can be removed during the procedure. There are a few different types of tummy tucks, and our surgeon will work with you to determine which procedure is most appropriate for your situation.
Enhance Your Breasts with a Lift or Implants
After the ups and downs of hormones during pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s breasts can sag and lose their fullness. Many women want to restore the full, plump look of their breasts, or even enhance them after breastfeeding has left them looking saggy and deflated. Enhancements can include one or both of the following procedures:
This type of procedure is for women who want to lift their breasts and reduce sagging, but do not want to add volume. An incision is made from the nipple down to the breast crease, and in some cases, along the crease beneath. Excess skin is removed, and some tissue may be repositioned to enhance the shape of the breast and reposition the breast tissue into the pre-pregnancy position. The incision is then closed and bandaged. Many women require a lift along with an augmentation to prevent the droopy breast from sagging with the implant.
Some women want implants to make their breasts larger and fuller. The procedure will give you added volume. Implants are available in both saline and silicone, and the latest generation are more natural-looking than ever. Our plastic surgeon will help you decide which size, shape, and type will be most appropriate to achieve the desired look and feel.
Dr. Rose and his staff are well known for their natural, high-quality results for breast enhancements. Our helpful staff is always there to help you make the right decision about restoring your breasts.
Contour Your Body with Liposuction
After receiving a tummy tuck and breast enhancement, many women also have liposuction to enhance the final look. Liposuction involves fat removal in various parts of the body using a special suction device. Most women have the procedure on the midsection to enhance the final results of a tummy tuck and achieve a youthful, lovely, slimmer figure. The other procedures remove skin and tighten muscles, and liposuction may be used to extract excess fat in a custom Mommy Makeover.
