School is Back In Session: Moms, it's YOUR time!

|

Sometimes as mothers, it's not easy to take time for ourselves. This seems especially true in summer, with school-aged children at home or being shuttled to camp, and family vacations on the schedule.

Mom-School copy.jpgIf you've considered a Mommy Makeover, but worried about downtime, this may be the best time of year for you to finally schedule your procedure. The kids are back in school, vacations are over, and the holiday rush is still a few months away.

The Mommy Makeover procedure is a unique combination of surgeries to help restore the figure you had before pregnancy and childbirth. A Mommy Makeover typically includes a combination of tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgery.

Many of our Mommy Makeover candidates are unhappy with their abdominal area. For some women, the skin and muscles that get stretched during pregnancy never rebound to their former positions. Even with exercise and a proper diet, some women are left with loose belly skin, stretch marks and weak abdominal muscles. The tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, can reverse some of these changes. The surgeon will tighten the abdominal muscles, pull the skin down and then remove excess skin, including stretch marks. Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat. The result is a slimmer, flatter mid-section.

Breast procedures are also popular parts of the Mommy Makeover. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag, and for some women a breast augmentation and/or breast lift will help to restore volume and improve the shape of breasts. Or if the breasts are overly large, they can create back and posture problems for women, and a breast reduction may become part of the Mommy Makeover.

We have several before-and-after mommy makeover images in our website photo gallery. We encourage you to take a look, and then schedule a consultation to see if a Mommy Makeover might be right for you.


Mommy Makeovers on the Rise

Whether the women on the phone have young children at home, or an empty nest, they all have something in common: pregnancy and childbirth changed their bodies and they're looking for a return to their pre-baby physique.

A Mommy Makeover is a unique blend of cosmetic procedures to target areas commonly affected by pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. For many women, that means a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation and breast lift. Even for moms who exercise and eat healthy meals, surgery is often the only way to get rid of loose belly skin and stretch marks, and restore fullness to breasts.

Savannah isn't the only area seeing an increased demand for Mommy Makeovers. WRIC TV in Virginia recently aired a special on the Mommy Makeover trend, and you can watch it here.

Mommy Makeovers: As Unique as You Are

One of the most popular procedures we're performing right now is the Mommy Makeover. Not every Mommy Makeover is the same though. This procedure is a unique combination of surgeries to help restore the figure you had before pregnancy and childbirth, and therefore varies for every patient. A Mommy Makeover typically includes a combination of tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgery.

Many of our Mommy Makeover candidates are unhappy with their abdominal area. For some women, the skin and muscles that get stretched during pregnancy never rebound to their former positions. Even with exercise and a proper diet, some women are left with loose belly skin, stretch marks and weak abdominal muscles. The tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, can reverse some of these changes. The surgeon will tighten the abdominal muscles, pull the skin down and then remove excess skin, including stretch marks. Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat. The result is a slimmer, flatter mid-section.

Breast procedures are also popular parts of the Mommy Makeover. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag, and for some women a breast augmentation and/or breast lift will help to restore volume and improve the shape of breasts. Or if the breasts are overly large, they can create back and posture problems for women, and a breast reduction may become part of the Mommy Makeover.

Getting Rid of Those Stretch Marks

|

A pregnant woman's body is truly an amazing thing, the way it can change and adapt to nourish a growing infant and prepare it for life outside the womb. But as nearly every mother knows, our bodies can't always return to their pre-pregnancy states; some of the changes are permanent. 

For some women, stretch marks are one of those unwanted permanent changes of pregnancy. Pregnancy greatly stretches your belly's skin, and can leave marks that are anywhere from pink, to reddish-brown, to dark brown. Some will fade over time to a more slivery color, but they don't go away on their own. These wrinkled streaks are actually breaks in the deep part of the skin, and there is currently no effective, non-surgical way to fill in and repair those stretch marks.

But that doesn't mean you're destined to live with stretch marks forever. A tummy tuck will help remove stretch marks located on the abdomen. And if your belly button has also changed shape because of your pregnancy, a tummy tuck can fix your belly button too.

If you are planning future pregnancies, you should wait to have a tummy tuck, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy. But if you believe your days of maternity clothes are behind you and you'd like to get rid of those stretch marks, then a tummy tuck may be right for you. 

You can get more information about the tummy tuck procedure, see before and after pictures and a video about tummy tucks on our Tummy Tuck web page.
