If you've recently given birth you know that your body has gone through many changes. To accommodate your growing child, your body expands to make room for your unborn child. During this time your hormones also change as your whole body works to supply your child with everything it needs. Unfortunately, however, all this change can lead to an unflattering figure which can be hard to remedy after childbirth.
The time after giving birth is filled with a myriad of stresses. Adjusting to your baby's erratic sleep schedule, the lack of sleep, and the complete alteration of your normal routine all make it extremely difficult to find time to work on yourself, especially your figure. Many women find it next to impossible to get back to their pre-pregnancy form but at the office of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Bogue, he offers a mommy makeover procedure to help women who have experienced dramatic changes to their body.
A mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring plastic surgery procedures customized to your specific needs to help you regain your figure after having children. Each woman experiences bodily changes differently but nearly every woman's body undergoes changes in certain areas. Because of weight gained during pregnancy and your breasts enlarging to prepare for breastfeeding, many women find that they want to address:
- Changes to breasts including sagging or enlarged breasts
- Excess fat around the body
- Loose skin in areas of the body after losing the baby weight
What makes a mommy makeover a great procedure is that it can be tailored to your unique needs. While some women may want to address excess fat and loose skin, others may want to also address issues with their abdomen and breasts. Whatever your needs, Dr. Bogue will work with you during your comprehensive consultation to address your concerns and customize the procedure to help you get your body back.
At our office, Dr. Bogue can use a combination of the following procedures to help you:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Body contouring
For a mommy makeover procedure, it's recommended that you hold off for around six months, if not more, after having your child before considering this treatment. This is because it's paramount that you let your body and hormones stabilize. We also recommended waiting to have this treatment until you're finished having children. Another pregnancy after your procedure can undo any or all of the improvement made by your mommy makeover. There are a few other considerations one must be aware of to be an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover. These include:
- Not being a smoker, or being able to quit for a time before and after treatment
- Making sure you have the ability to relax and recover after the procedure
- Understanding and following all pre- and postoperative instructions
- Understanding all potential risks and complications
Dr. Bogue will discuss all of this with you in depth during your consultation. His goal and the goal of everyone at his office is that your procedure is safe and effective and produces the results you desire for a new, beautiful you.
