Motherhood is one of the most precious and rewarding experiences that a woman can go through. From the excitement of learning that you are pregnant through the joys and trials of raising your children, parenthood is an irreplaceable and permanent part of your life. So too are the physical changes that accompany motherhood.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing take their toll on a woman’s figure. During the subsequent years of child-rearing, your dedication and commitment are focused on the care of your children and away from yourself. During that time your physical appearance may slide which can negatively impact your confidence and self-esteem.
Common physical findings associated with motherhood include:
Loss of breast fullness
Rounding of the abdomen with loss of muscle strength
Loss of vaginal tone
Enlargement of the labia
With the advances in body contouring, having children should never be seen as having to sacrifice your body. Dr. Lee at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa are experts in Mommy Makeovers.
The Mommy Makeover is a set of procedures designed to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. A youthful, vivacious and energetic body can be regained with procedures performed by one of San Diego’s leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Gilbert Lee.
In many cases, diet and exercise alone are insufficient for women who want to return to their pre-pregnancy appearance. Fortunately, Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa are here to revamp your post-pregnancy appearance and improve body contours. Patients can lose up to 25 pounds following these procedures, recapturing the appearance of their 20’s.
A mommy makeover generally includes more than one of the following plastic surgeries, including:
Breast Augmentation – Involves the surgical placement of breast implants to bolster the fullness of the breasts and improve breast symmetry.
Breast Lift – Raises and firms the breasts by minimizing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue, resulting in enhanced breast contours.
Tummy Tuck – Eliminates excess fat and skin, providing a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.
Liposuction – Removes excess fat deposits, and ultimately, enhances the body’s contours and proportion.
Vaginal Tightening – Serves as a procedure designed to “tighten up” a vagina that is loose or slack due to childbirth or aging.
Labial Reduction – Reduces the labia minora (inner lips) to minimize protrusion beyond the labia majora (outer lips).
Some women may request improvement in all of the above areas, whereas some may greatly benefit from just a few of the above. A private and discreet consultation with a Changes surgeon will help you with your personal treatment plan.
Dr. Gilbert Lee has over 24 years of experience in body contouring through plastic surgery. Having been recognized as a Top Doc in plastic surgery by the San Diego County Medical Society, you can be confident in his ability to restore the figure you enjoyed before having children.
