Hey guys. Dr. Rick here for question of the day. Today, I'm gonna talk about what can I do for my first pregnancy body? Most people call that the mommy makeover. When we are addressing these issues after a person is done having babies, we talk mostly about, usually, breast and body work. So there's three main procedures that we usually so for post mommy makeover or post baby body makeovers. The first one we talk about is liposuction. Sometimes patients just need liposuction around the tummy area, the flank area, different areas, maybe the thighs, the inner/outer thigh or hip area. That's something that can be done relatively easily. We do a lot of these procedures in combination as well. The next area that I usually talk about is the tummy itself and that can be an abdominal plastic procedure where we actually take all of the excess skin off and relocate the bellybutton into it's new position and tighten up the abdominal muscles at the same time. That's your traditional abdominal plastic procedure. Now, I'll often combine an abdominal plastic with liposuction.

The last set of procedures that we often talk about are breast operations. A lot of women like to have their breasts rejuvenated because they've breast-fed and the quality of the skin and tissue changes. So some women either just want a breast lift, and that entails not using any implants at all. We take your existing breast tissue which has gotten loose over time, and we just make a series of incisions to tighten things up and rejuvenate them. This can be done in combination with a breast augmentation as well. So some women simply wanna to have an implant placed and then have the lift at the same time, and a lot of people are good candidates for that operation. On the other end of the spectrum, someone might simply just need an implant alone, and just placing the implant can rejuvenate the breasts to the point where you don't need a lift or any other type of procedure performed. When we're talking abut a mommy makeover, it can be any constellation of those procedures. And what I do is evaluate you in the office to discuss which of one is best for you, and we came up with a plan to get you where you want to be. Enjoy your new body and I'll see you next time.
