Mommy Makeovers for a New Start

November 18, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Today's moms are busier than ever, often juggling a full-time job with the demands of motherhood and running a household. But, as we hear frequently at our Louisville plastic surgery practice, moms are tired of putting their own needs aside as they care for a busy family. At Corbett Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a complete mommy makeover for these overworked moms who need a little pampering and want to get back their youthful appearance.

Mommy makeovers include a few different procedures that restore the look of a woman's breasts and stomach to their pre-pregnancy positions. While mommy makeovers may vary slightly based on individual needs, the most popular options in our Louisville plastic surgery practice include:

  • Tummy tuck Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a good option for women who are close to their ideal body weight but still have some excess skin and fat that they want removed. Patients who have worked out and still can't loose that extra belly weight are optimal candidates.
  • Liposuction Pregnancy often transforms a mom's waistline for years to come, creating a roll around the midsection. Liposuction, which can be combined with a tummy tuck, will eliminate this excess fat and remove love handles and "saddle bags" on the back.
  • Breast lifts Breasts naturally droop after pregnancy and nursing, which is an unavoidable fact. In many cases, the sagging will cause the nipple to appear as if it is pointing downward. A breast lift can restore the youthful appearance of the breasts, and the nipple can be repositioned back to its original location.
  • Breast implants Many of our Louisville breast lift patients also opt for small breast implants. The goal is not necessarily to increase the bust size but to restore the volume that is lost after pregnancy and nursing. Although increasing the cup size is also an option.

  • These mommy makeover procedures can sometimes be combined into one surgery, but we may need to break them into separate surgeries. It all depends on the patient's health and specific needs. Most patients are back to their normal routines within two weeks.
