Being a mother is one of the most rewarding and selfless jobs a woman can have, but the physical changes that occur to you can leave some women desiring the body they once had. There has been an increasing trend in women electing a “mommy makeover” procedure: a combination of cosmetic procedures aimed at rejuvenating the breasts and abdominal area to help women achieve their pre-baby bodies.
The beauty of a mommy makeover is the ability to customize a combination of procedures from tummy tucks and liposuction to breast lifts and breast augmentation based on your individual needs. This gives Dr. Hunter Moyer the ability to target and effectively treat problem areas in one surgery. Pregnancy can cause dramatic changes to the body despite healthy diet and exercise routines. Some women experience loose skin, stretch marks, sagging breasts and exercise-resistant fat deposits that can only be corrected with body contouring procedures. The best candidates for mommy makeover are those who have reached a desirable weight and are no longer breast feeding their infants.
Popular mommy makeover components like a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is desirable as it tightens the abdominal muscles to smooth the midsection, remove unwanted fat and excess skin. Stretch marks are reduced while also narrowing the waistline to reveal a more contoured look. In addition to the abdominal areas, pregnancy can affect the breasts. Whether due to breastfeeding or volume fluctuation, the breasts often lose their elasticity and shift downward, creating a pendulous shape. Fortunately, cosmetic breast procedures like breast lift can correct breast position by removing excess skin, reshaping the breasts and lifting them higher. Dr. Moyer eliminates sagging and creates a more proportionate and youthful aesthetic. Breast lifts are often combined with breast augmentation to increase volume, and Dr. Moyer also offers the auto-augmentation lift where some of your excess inferior breast tissue is used as an “implant” during the lift.
