Mommy Makeover Procedure at Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology
The physical demands of pregnancy and breastfeeding can be particularly difficult to overcome, often resulting in the loss of self-confidence. While there are few things as rewarding as motherhood, even with the right diet and exercise routine, it can be a struggle to tone and restore a pre-pregnancy figure. A mommy makeover usually entails a combination of procedures, customized specifically for the patient to address their main areas of concern. At Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, our patients discuss their goals with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Niki Christopoulos, and begin their path to regaining confidence and positive self-image.
A mommy makeover usually combines several procedures to address specific areas of concern, usually referring to the breasts, abdomen and flanks. Below we detail these surgeries and aesthetic procedures so that you are able to plan the right mommy makeover for your goals.
Breast Augmentation: This procedure involves inserting a breast implant either on top of or under the muscle to enhance the size and shape of the breast.
Breast Lift: Many moms will choose to have a breast lift to restore the perkiness and shapeliness of the breasts, which can make it easier to find clothes that fit. For some women, combining a breast lift with augmentation is ideal, since there may be some lost volume following breastfeeding.
Abdominoplasty: Also known as a “tummy tuck,” an abdominoplasty involves removing the excess skin and fat from the abdomen while tightening the likely separated or weakened abdominal muscles that commonly occurs after pregnancy.
Body contouring: Hormonal fluctuations and changes in weight and body shape during pregnancy can leave behind stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. This commonly settles in the abdomen, flanks and hips for many women. Liposuction is commonly used to address these areas of concern.
Mommy makeovers are a great way to pamper yourself following the stress of pregnancy, and a growing number of moms are choosing to have these procedures. Because so many mothers return to the workplace and maintain active social lives following their pregnancies, it is important for them to remain confident and feel beautiful. Mommy makeovers help to achieve these goals and offer a sense of renewed vitality for moms.
