The ‘Mommy Makeover:’ A Solution to the Post-Baby Blues?

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are experiences that many women look forward to and enjoy. Although they take pleasure in their new roles as mothers, there are some unpleasant changes to the body that aren’t as delightful. Throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts and abdomen stretch, causing the skin to lose elasticity. In addition, there may also be specific areas of stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet.

Women who have exhausted natural means of weight loss often turn to cosmetic plastic surgery to achieve their desired goals. Typically, patients choose to undergo a combination of procedures in order to regain their pre-pregnancy shape; this is often termed a “Mommy Makeover.” Dr. Leonard M. Hochstein performs this surgery at his practice in Miami. The most frequently combined procedures include breast lift surgery (with augmentation), liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery in Miami. Some patients may also opt to undergo vaginal rejuvenation. These procedures can help restore the breasts to a more youthful shape and position, while tightening and contouring the midsection.

It is common for patients to comment that they have been able to reclaim their body with the Mommy Makeover surgery and are pleased with the results. If you are ready to learn more regarding these procedures, feel free to contact Miami liposuction surgeon Dr. Hochstein. Your questions/concerns can be addressed during an initial consultation.

That is absolutely right though breast feeding is very important and mothers look forward to the bonding the breasts do lose their shape after a while which has now a wonderful solution with surgery.
