The pregnancy is over. The baby is healthy and well. Now you want to reinvigorate your body’s shape and contour. Many women think this is an impossible goal.
The seemingly impossible is possible with the help of the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul M. Parker has helped numerous mothers achieve the results they desire with a “mommy makeover.” The term “mommy makeover” encompasses one or more procedures to rejuvenate the breasts, abdomen and torso. This may include a breast augmentation and/ or breast lift, liposuction of the abdomen, hips and thighs, and/ or a tummy tuck.
More and more women are discovering that they may regain a more youthful figure by improving the shape and size of their breasts as well as contouring their abdomen, hips and thighs. In other words, the combination of procedures called a ”mommy makeover” is designed to reverse the signs of your body’s transformation following pregnancy. Patients not only look better after these procedures, but feel better about themselves as well. Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to lose your sex appeal or healthy-looking physique. Dr. Parker and his team at the Parker Center can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
For instance, breast augmentation procedures are one of the most frequent surgeries Dr. Parker performs. In fact, it’s one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the nation. Roughly 300,000 such surgeries were performed last year, many as part of a mommy makeover. Pregnancy and subsequent breastfeeding can alter the shape and size of your breasts. During a with Dr. Parker, he will discuss options with you to improve the appearance of your breasts with breast augmentation and/ or a breast lift procedure.
Mommy makeover procedures typically also include rejuvenating the abdomen after it has been affected by childbirth. The abdomen is usually the one to experience a change first. During your consultation with Dr. Parker, he will discuss options with you which usually include liposuction or a tummy tuck, depending on your individual anatomy and your desires. Liposuction may be performed if you have excess subcutaneous tissue beneath the skin, good skin elasticity and have not overly stretched your rectus abdominus muscles, or “abs.” On the other hand, if you have lost your skin elasticity and/ or stretched your abs, a tummy tuck will probably be needed to rejuvenate them. Also known as an abdominoplasty, this procedure will remove excess skin, tighten loose abs, and flatten your abdomen. This will shape and contour your body to deliver results not achievable on your own.
Finally, the Parker Center’s mommy makeover can include liposuction to finish your body’s incredible transformation back to its pre-pregnancy form. Liposuction targets various fatty areas of your body including the thighs, buttocks, neck, back of the arms, and elsewhere. In essence, we remove the fat that has built up during the course of a pregnancy and cannot be lost on your own. Liposuction allows us to contour and shape these areas to recreate a healthier, more beautiful you.
A mommy makeover helps you reclaim the body you once had or deliver the body you have always wanted. While many women get a mommy makeover shortly after pregnancy, many also get the procedure done years later.
