Frequently after giving birth, in spite of a woman’s best efforts, there are changes that only surgery can rectify. These changes are most commonly seen in the abdomen and breasts.
Mommy Makeover for the Abdomen
Problem deposits of fat can be removed with liposuction/liposculpture. If the skin has been stretched significantly, it may lose its elasticity. For redundant or loose skin, a mini abdominoplasty or abdominoplasty may be indicated. Commonly, abdominal muscles will loosen, and this is corrected at the time of the abdominoplasty. The hip and waist area may be contoured with Liposuction/Liposculpture.
Mommy Makeover for the breasts
Breasts frequently involute or shrink, leaving an empty skin envelope. In many cases, this can be addressed by Breast Augmentation with a saline or silicone gel implants. If skin has been stretched excessively, a breast lift or Mastopexy may be required to re-contour the breasts. Breast lift may be performed with Breast Augmentation if indicated.
Women may seek consultation as soon as three months after giving birth. Dr. Serure may suggest waiting a bit longer before embarking on surgery. Dr. Serure will evaluate you to determine the optimal procedure for you.
