the mommy makeover


The Mommy MakeOver After having our beautiful kids, we get these scars called “striae”, we also get abdominal skin and flabby muscles, sagging breasts and all the fat gets improperly distributed. So that begs the question, what can we do? But don’t worry, I have a solution that I like to call The Mommy Makeover.

These are a multiple surgical procedures performed to improve your figure after giving birth, among these procedures is the tummy tuck, abdominoplasty, skin lifting and breast augmentation or reduction.

Abdominoplasty is the procedure for those who have sagging abdomen, stretch marks, excess abdominal skin and weak stomach muscles, all these are recommended when you have just become a mother. In this scenario we make a wound over the pubis which will be hidden with underwear or bathing suit, the skin then is lifted, we proceed with the separation of the abs muscles, we fold inward excess sagging, thus excess skin excess is removed and re sutured.

I usually prefer to complement this procedure with a little bit of liposuction on the sides just to get that perfect doll look my clients look for.

For those who after giving birth just got a little bit of fat around the stomach area, the procedure I do here is liposuction, those fat deposits that make our body seem out of proportion are extracted in order to obtain a pleasing figure. This could be performed in other areas as well such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles.

Breast augmentation (or reduction) is another of the procedures that we do in “The Mommy Makeover” plan, if you have very large mammary glands or maybe the size of your breast is way too big that you can’t comfortably walk or it’s causing that pain in your back and shoulders then a reduction mammoplasty is for you. On the other end are mommies that their breasts are very small or have an asymmetrical breasts, breasts augmentation can solve this problems and improve your figure at the same time.

Now girls these are procedures that we can work together to improve your physical figure, but remember that also you need to find and develop our inner beauty as well.
