Miami Beach Plastic Surgeon
The process begins with a consultation where you can discuss your specific concerns, goals and expectations. This is followed by a thorough examination and evaluation, and then, a detailed description of the various treatment options available to achieve your goals. The most commonly combined procedures in a Mommy Makeover include:
-Breast Lift with or without Breast Augmentation
-Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
-Total Body Lift
Following pregnancy, and/or breastfeeding, the breasts can lose their shape resulting in a sagging or deflated appearance. They are often uneven in size and shape. Dr. Tachmes will discuss your options to restore or enhance the natural beauty of your breasts that you desire or once had.
A Tummy Tuck or Body Lift will tighten your mid-section which is often stretched out resulting in laxity of the skin and underlying muscles. This includes removal of excess skin and fat leaving you with a flat and youthful tummy. If there are lower abdominal stretch marks, they are often removed with the excess skin.
There are many physical changes that occur in a women’s body both during pregnancy as well as afterwards. This often includes significant weight gain throughout the body in addition to engorgement and enlargement of the breasts and loss of shape and tone in the abdominal area. These changes, along with breastfeeding, can result in the loss of a balanced and attractive body shape. By safely combining popular body contouring procedures, Dr. Tachmes can help you restore your youthful, pre-preganancy figure.
Liposuction is performed in other areas to treat unwanted fatty deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas include, thighs, hips, waist, lower back and knees.
