A woman’s body uniquely changes during pregnancy. Excess fat is stored, muscles expand, and tissues stretch to accommodate a growing baby. Unfortunately, most of these changes permanently affect the look and feel of your body long after childbirth. Many moms experience dissatisfaction with their appearance in the months and years after their baby is born. You may be struggling to feel confident in your body and may have found that diet and exercise do little to restore your pre-baby body. The Mommy Makeover is specially designed to target the areas most commonly affected by pregnancy and restore their firm, toned appearance.
Target Treatment Area
It is normal for women to experience an increase in breast size during their pregnancy as milk glands develop and milk ducts grow to prepare for nursing. However, this size increase often doesn’t remain once you have finished breastfeeding. Many women experience a significant loss of volume that causes their breasts to appear deflated. You may also begin to develop mild or moderate sagging that ages the appearance of your breasts. For many women, their breasts used to create an attractive feminine physique, and losing the breasts’ youthful appeal affects their overall satisfaction in their appearance.
The abdominal tissues expand during pregnancy to make room for your growing baby. However, the rapid change in body composition can be difficult to reverse, even through diet and exercise. Loose skin and stretch marks can cause a flabby abdominal appearance. Many women will also experience diastasis recti, which is the stretching of the connective tissue that holds the abdominal muscles together. Diastasis recti can cause a stomach pooch that prevents you from being able to achieve a toned abdominal contour.
Areas of Fat Accumulation
Fat is stored during pregnancy and is often difficult to eliminate following childbirth. Excess fat accumulation can occur in a number of areas, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck. Stubborn fat can mask the attractive contours of your body and prevent you from achieving the slimmer, more defined physique you desire. Treating areas with excess fat can restore a more attractive curvature to your body and increase your confidence in the way you look.
I had over 120 lbs of weight loss after bariatric surgery and I underwent combined breast, abdomen, and neck procedures. I have never been so happy with how I look. My scars are healing much better than I anticipated, and although I did have a several tough weeks of recovery after the procedure, I am SO HAPPY that I went through with it. Dr. Cohn and his staff are true professionals and I have recommended them to multiple friends and colleagues.
