What's involved in a "mommy makeover"?
A mommy makeover is a customizable combination of procedures designed to address the specific body changes experienced after childbirth. Dr. Charvet offers many possible procedures that can help restore the size and shape of the areas you're unhappy with and tighten areas of sagging skin.
A mommy makeover commonly involves procedures like a tummy tuck, breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction. And you can even add skin treatments to your plan.
How does a tummy tuck affect a post-pregnancy body?
After pregnancy, you may find that your abdomen has lost its firmness. This can be a tricky area to lose weight from, even when you're getting exercise and eating healthy food.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty helps tighten the muscles in this area and removes excess skin. While it isn't designed to remove fat, liposuction is included in the procedure. Many times, a tummy tuck may be all you need to regain a flatter, firmer belly.
How can a breast lift restore or enhance your body shape after having a baby?
Breastfeeding can cause your breasts to sag or lose volume, and there's not much you can do about that on your own. No amount of creams or over-the-counter products will firm up sagging breast skin enough to make a difference.
A breast lift reshapes and firms your breasts, returning them to a more youthful position. If you want to increase your breast size, breast augmentation with implants can also be an option. It will all depend on your unique aesthetic goals.
How can liposuction help me get my body back after childbirth?
Liposuction can remove stubborn fat that doesn't respond to diet or exercise. These fat deposits — especially on the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, hips, and neck — tend to become more challenging to get rid of as we age.
By sculpting these areas, liposuction can enhance your overall body contour and complement any other procedures you've chosen. It's one of the most popular choices for a mommy makeover.
Can a mommy makeover involve nonsurgical treatments?
A mommy makeover often involves noninvasive treatments for those who feel like they need skin rejuvenation. It's common to add nonsurgical treatments that address issues like stretch marks, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
During your consultation, Dr. Charvet can recommend procedures like laser resurfacing, chemical peels, or injectables like BOTOX® to address your unique concerns.
