Becoming a mother is an exciting, rewarding experience, but it can create undesirable changes in the body, particularly the breasts and abdomen. At Beck Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Joel Beck can perform a mommy makeover in Charlotte, NC to help you reclaim your pre-baby body.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures, which may or may not be performed in the same session, designed to restore a woman’s appearance after childbearing and breastfeeding. At Beck Aesthetic Surgery each mommy makeover is custom-tailored to address the needs of the individual patient.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
After childbirth and breastfeeding, it is a good idea to take some time to get your body back in shape with diet and exercise. When you have fully recovered and lost all or most of your pregnancy weight, you may be a good candidate for our Charlotte mommy makeover if you have:
- Excess fat, loose skin, and stretch marks in the abdominal area
- Loss of volume or sagging breasts
- Localized deposits of excess fat in certain areas of the body
To find out if you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover in Charlotte, NC, schedule a consultation at Beck Aesthetic Surgery. Our board-certified plastic surgeon can tell you if you are a candidate and individually tailor a surgical plan for you.
Procedures Commonly Performed in a Mommy Makeover
The breasts increase in size during pregnancy and go through frequent fluctuations while a woman is nursing. When pregnancy and breastfeeding are over, the breasts may lose their firmness and begin to droop and sag, with the nipple pointing downward or falling below the breast crease. Breast lift surgery removes loose, excess skin to lift the breasts and repositions the nipples to restore a youthful, firm, plump appearance.
One of the casualties of pregnancy and breastfeeding is loss of volume and deflation of the breasts. This can affect the way clothes fit and reduce your self-confidence. Breast augmentation with implants may be performed alone or in combination with breast lift surgery to restore pre-pregnancy shape and fullness to your breasts.
The skin of the abdomen is stretched beyond its limits in the advanced stages of pregnancy. Abdominal muscles can be weakened during pregnancy and have separated and loosened. A tummy tuck in Charlotte, NC can tighten and tone weak abdominal muscles and remove excess fat, loose skin, and stretch marks to create a firmer, flatter, smoother, younger-looking abdomen.
Weight gain during pregnancy is normal and good for the baby. However, when you lose the baby weight with exercise and a healthy diet, you may still have deposits of stubborn fat remaining in the stomach, hips, back, buttocks, arms, or thighs. Using advanced liposuction techniques, Dr. Beck can remove unsightly fat deposits to give your body sleeker lines and more defined youthful curves.
It is not uncommon for childbearing to wreak havoc on the face as well as the body. Dr. Beck performs mommy makeover facial rejuvenation using a range of minimally-invasive techniques. Treatments may include laser skin resurfacing, BOTOX, or facial fillers such as Juvéderm and Radiesse.
