Many plastic surgeons, including Dr. Conkright, are performing "Mommy Makeovers". A Mommy Makeover is a combination of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or lift and frequently liposuction that are all performed in one session. One particular woman who has not been shy discussing her mommy makeover is Hollywood actress Patricia Heaton, pictured above. So for all you mommies out there, listen up! You may find yourself having the same complaints about your body as listed below.
1) "I have flat, saggy breasts that are smaller now than before I was pregnant." Pregnancy causes the breasts to grow very rapidly. But after giving birth, breasts return to their pre-pregnancy size and sometimes even smaller. Also, the stretched skin may be unable to bounce back. There are 3 solutions:
-Breast Lift: If you are happy with your current breast size, but would like them to be perky again, this may be the solution for you!
-Breast Augmentation: If you are happy with the position of your breast, but would like them a little fuller, this may be the solution for you!
-Breast Lift with Implants: If you are unhappy with both the size and position of your breast, you may consider a breast lift with Implants.
2) "My stomach isn't as flat as it was before baby." A soft, flabby belly can be due to overstretched abdominal muscles. It takes a lot of hard work to get your pre-pregnancy stomach back, but sometimes even after hundreds of crunches and hours of cardio at the gym many women still have stretched out skin and a post-pregnancy pooch. The solution?
-Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck will take care of all the abdominal issues experienced post-pregnancy like stretch marks, excess skin and stretched abdominal wall.
3) "I've been dieting and exercising for months, but I still have saddlebags." As the body changes during pregnancy and weight accumulates, some areas, such as the inner and outer thighs, are harder to get back into shape than others. The solution?
-Liposuction: The lower body is one of the most popular areas treated through lipsosuction because it can be the most resistant to change. If after diet and exercise, you are still experiencing unruly saddlebags and love handles, liposuction may be for you!
Ladies, if you have any of the same concerns as above, now is as good as time as ever to call Dr. Conkright and set up a complimentary consult. It is time for you to do something for yourself and to be comfortable with your body once again!
