Having a baby can be one of the most memorable and wonderful experiences in our lives. Unfortunately, pregnancy can be very difficult on our bodies, and after the baby is born your body may not ever go back to the way it was before.
The Mommy Makeover is a series of procedures designed to address the most common problem areas associated with pregnancy - the abdominal area and the breasts. Detroit moms who want to improve their figures after childbirth can turn to Dr. Ellen, a board certified plastic surgeon, for a mommy makeover.
Breast augmentation or the breast lift may be part of your mommy makeover. Breast augmentation increases breast size and fullness while a breast lift restores a youthful breast position. In some cases, these procedures can be combined.
A tummy tuck can give you a flatter abdomen and repair the stretched abdominal muscles that occur after pregnancy or major changes in body weight. Liposuction is a procedure that removes persistent areas of localized fat. One or both of these surgeries may be part of a mommy-makeover package.
When is an appropriate time to undergo a mommy makeover?
To get the best results from these procedures, you'll want to reach a point in your life where you are not planning any future pregnancies. This will ensure your results last as long as possible. You should also work toward a healthy body weight before considering the mommy-makeover. Most surgeons would advise you to be within 15 lbs of your "ideal" body weight.
Dr. Ellen can give you specific advice about the mommy makeover procedures that could benefit you and what steps you may need to take before and after surgery to get the best results.
