“Mommy Makeover” is a term used for a combination of body contouring procedures to overcome the effects of childbearing and nursing. While a tummy tuck can tighten the abdomen, many post-pregnancy women have several areas of their body that have changed from pregnancy, breastfeeding, childbirth and other factors associated with having children. At Vantage Plastic Surgery NYC, we offer a suite of procedures combined into a “Mommy Makeover” to combat these effects on the female body.
Customized Post-Pregnancy Body Shaping
While becoming a mother is a wonderful experience, many women long for the body they had before they became mothers. A “Mommy Makeover” is an individualized approach to address any or all of the following that can occur with pregnancy and motherhood:
- Loose skin of the abdomen, hips, buttocks (lower body lift) and breasts
- Stretch marks on the abdomen and breasts
- Loose abdominal wall muscles or diastasis recti
- Breast volume loss or sagging
- Fat accumulation
Each patient has different trouble areas they want addressed, which is why every “Mommy Makeover” is customized. Genetics, age, number of pregnancies, lifestyle and many other factors impact how pregnancy and motherhood affect the body. Some common procedures that may be included are:
- Breast lift, augmentation or both
- Tummy tuck or diastasis recti repair
- Hernia repair
At Vantage Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shteynberg has ample experience performing all of the possible procedures that may be included with a “Mommy Makeover.” He will discuss with each patient the most appropriate procedures for the individual based on the unique circumstances and desired outcomes. The procedures can be done one at a time or multiple surgeries may be combined to reduce the recovery time.
Pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood can take a noticeable toll on the body, but it is possible to reverse many of these changes with plastic surgery. If you want to learn more about a “Mommy Makeover” or any individual body reshaping procedures, contact us at Vantage Plastic Surgery in Manhattan or Brooklyn.
