Congratulations on being a mother! Children are an amazing gift; they bring so much happiness to our lives. Let’s admit it, though – pregnancy can take a significant toll on women’s bodies, particularly around the abdomen and breast areas; the skin also suffers, what with the stretching of the abdominal skin. You devote so much of yourself and your resources to your children, from time to energy to financial resources. You feel good knowing that every sacrifice is worth it. But sometimes with all that you do, you leave no time for yourself. Dr. Talbott offers you exciting surgical options to reverse the unwanted effects of child-bearing: the Mommy Makeover.
One of the hottest trends in plastic surgery today, a mommy makeover in Reno is not just for recent moms; some women wait several years before deciding to treat themselves. This plastic surgery procedure addresses the most common body issues that mommies have, like the sagging of breasts and the excess fat in the abdomen, hips, and thighs. The mommy makeover combines three surgeries into one comprehensive package, incorporating breast augmentation or breast lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.
MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURES IN RENO
Body – Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
The stretching of the stomach muscles and skin, thighs, breasts, and other areas can lead to stretch marks, excess fat deposits, and loose sagging skin. Women are discovering that there is, in fact, a way to reclaim their bodies. As a mother of four and grandmother, Dr. Talbott understands the changes the body undergoes during pregnancy. As the baby grows and forces the uterus against the abdomen, those vertical muscles get stretched apart and elongate, which results in a pouch on the lower stomach that diet and exercise can’t address or get rid off.
To bring those muscles back in their original placement, surgical interventions like liposuction and abdominoplasty are required. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes stubborn pockets of fat from the body, giving patients are more contoured physique. A tummy tuck (also known as abdominoplasty), on the other hand, is a procedure designed to repair stretched abdominal muscles to give the abdomen a tighter and more toned appearance. Combining these two procedures in a mommy makeover surgery results in a curvier and more defined physique. Read our blog post to find out more about these two plastic surgery procedures.
Breasts – Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift
The size and shape of breasts can change drastically after pregnancy. Some women suffer extensive swelling, sometimes causing a difference in cup sizes. In addition to the postpartum loss of fat tissue, swelling can cause the skin to stretch and sag. A breast lift or mastopexy can be performed to remove the excess skin and “lift” the breasts, reducing the sagging. Another option is breast augmentation, where saline or silicone breast implants are placed to return the original fullness of the breast.
There are many reasons why mommies put off cosmetic improvements. Some mothers are worried about taking time away from their hectic schedules to undergo surgical procedures. Think about how much your health and beauty are worth to you. Wouldn’t you be able to accomplish more with a fresh perspective? Wouldn’t it be easier to succeed at home and at work when you’re feeling great about your appearance? The answer is YES!
