What’s Your Mommy Makeover Combo?
We see it time and time again — mothers are always the first to put themselves last. But in recent years many moms are learning that to better care for their families, they need to prioritize their health and happiness. After concluding their child-bearing years, women are more likely looking to get back in shape and regain a more healthily-structured lifestyle. While childbirth is a miraculous, life-changing journey, many women feel discouraged or disappointed over the changes in their bodies and that their bodies haven’t ‘bounced back’ the way they’d like to. In reality, many mothers never reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies, and that’s okay! Fortunately, board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon, Dr. Adibfar offers various corrective procedures to help moms look and feel their best by reclaiming a new happy body to be proud to show off.
There are three more common areas women seek improvement after having children: their abdominals, chest, and vaginal area. These may also be combined with liposuction. Let’s take a closer look at these various mommy makeover procedures!
After carrying a child (sometimes two or more!) for 9 months, it’s quite probable that a mother’s abdomen may not reclaim its former shape. Many moms are surprised to find stretch marks, as well as lax and loose skin and muscles that never existed before. During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Adibfar can address these pesky concerns using a combination of his highly-accredited surgical techniques. This combination of techniques can include liposuction, excess skin removal, and contouring to smooth and tighten the abdomen. What results in a more sleek, hourglass silhouette with better abdominal muscle tone and free of surplus fat and/or skin. While one mother’s body will differ greatly to the next, the procedure typically involves a low and discreet incision created along the bikini line. This will allow Dr. Adibfar ample access to tighten the underlying muscles and skin. If a patient’s abdominal muscles require tightening, another incision may result around the navel.
Breast Augmentation and/or lift
Many mothers witness dramatic changes in their breasts during pregnancy, after pregnancy, and throughout breastfeeding. Mothers may notice that their breasts never revert to the way they looked pre-pregnancy. Breasts that were once perky, full, and lifted, now appear deflated, droopy and asymmetrical. Dr. Adibfar sees many of these patients and is happy to offer breast enhancement to get mothers feeling better about their breasts again. The breast enhancement procedures may involve one, or a combination of surgeries including breast implants, a breast lift, and/or fat transfer. After the swelling has subsided and full recovery and results are recognized, these mothers are thrilled to be left with fuller, perkier and more youthful breasts that are still natural-looking.
Labiaplasty and/or vaginal tightening and perineoplasty
Mothers interested in vaginal rejuvenation have typically undergone single or multiple vaginal births. This delicate area has been stretched after childbirth leaving a larger more lax opening. After childbirth, some mothers find that their vaginal lips have protruded further than they’d like, finding it extremely uncomfortable wearing fitted undergarments or engaging in physically demanding activities and sexual intercourse. Dr. Adibfar corrects this via labiaplasty. This involves removing any excess skin on the labia while carefully and safely using stitches to close the area. Some mothers may require more extensive vaginal rejuvenation which can involve tightening the vaginal canal and perinoplasty resulting in more sexual pleasure and satisfaction.
