Give Your Post-Baby Body A New And Improved Look With The Mommy Makeover!
The joys of motherhood cannot be described in words. However, some of the consequences left behind by pregnancy can be very evident on our body. Bouncing back to your pre-pregnancy body can be a very frustrating experience, especially when you are working hard at diet and exercise yet are still left with displeasing contours. Why is it so difficult to regain your pre-pregnancy figure? Because unfortunately during pregnancy, in addition to the weight gain, your skin and muscles are stretched to the point where they lose elasticity. When this happens, no amount of crunches or exercise can help. Your customized Mommy Makeover is designed utilizing a combination of procedures that are selected to address your specific body concerns, addressing not just one but many of the unwelcome physical side effects of pregnancy and childbirth.
The media all too often presents us with hard-to-achieve or unrealistic expectations for women that have just had a baby. Although some people are lucky enough to simply bounce back, the majority of women are most often left with areas that will never look the same and this can affect your self-esteem. Dr. Burton and Dr. Reps Sundin are Board Certified (ABPS) Plastic Surgeons who have the skill, experience, and care to give their patients in the Richmond, Virginia and Vienna, Virginia areas a variety of different options to help them get their body back! Each patient we see gets their own customized Mommy Makeover plan because everyone is unique. You can be sure that our goal is to help you reclaim your body and go about enjoying your life with confidence!*
Mommy Makeover Procedures
The changes that occur during pregnancy and childbirth can really take their toll on your body. Sagging breasts, abdominal protrusion, stubborn fat pockets, and stretch marks are just a few of the complaints we commonly hear about. Fortunately, surgical procedures may help restore many of these areas that have been resistant to other means of improvement. Here are some of the procedures we offer that may help you improve your body contours and make you feel like the radiant, beautiful woman you are*:
- Abdominoplasty – Also known as a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to give your abdomen a flat, taut contour. By removing excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen and tightening the stretched out muscle underneath, a tummy tuck is extremely effective in tightening and toning the abdomen while also reducing lower abdominal stretch marks.
- Mastopexy – A mastopexy or breast lift can help raise the position of your breasts and also reduce the size of the areola (colored area around your nipples).
- Breast Augmentation – A breast augmentation can help correct the deflated look of breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. It can be combined with a breast lift or performed on its own depending on the degree of sag of the breasts.
- Liposuction – Liposuction can be used the reduce fat in the abdomen and hips that are resistant to diet and exercise. When there is no muscle diastasis (stretch) and the skin still has pretty good elasticity, this can help reduce that tummy pooch you have been battling.
