There is nothing better than becoming a mother, whether it is your first child or you are adding to your brood. Unfortunately, the joy of raising children is often marred by concerns about the changes to your body that frequently occur after pregnancy and nursing. The ability to restore your body to its pre-baby state can enhance your parenting experience no matter when you decide the time is right. That’s why so many of our patients love the mommy makeover procedure Dr. Martin performs for just this purpose.
The Problem with Pregnancy
Those nine months of carrying your baby are characterized by profound changes to your body. The expanding uterus requires stretching of both the skin and the abdominal muscles to accommodate your growing baby. The breasts also change, becoming larger in most cases to prepare for the essential job of feeding your bundle of joy during those early months.
You accept the changes that happen during pregnancy because you know they are beneficial to your child. You take care of yourself better than you ever have, as you anticipate the birth of a healthy, beautiful baby. Unfortunately, once the momentous birth day arrives, your body doesn’t seem to realize the pregnancy has ended. Weeks, even months after your pregnancy, your breasts and abdomen fail to bounce back, leaving you with sagging skin and breasts and a tummy bulge that just won’t respond to workouts and calorie-counting.
The Toll of Nursing
Breastfeeding offers numerous advantages to your baby but can take a toll on your body as well. Your breasts, which had already started to droop due to changes during pregnancy, are now dropping even lower and sport an almost deflated appearance. You had heard that the act of nursing would help your stomach return to its original state, but that benefit seemed to have missed your body somehow.
You may be left feeling like your body aged years just from carrying and caring for your baby. Unfortunately, there is often no way for you to reverse those changes by your efforts. Fortunately, Dr. Martin can help you target your specific concerns with a customized mommy makeover that will give you back your youthful body and vitality.
Making Over Your Mommy Body
Because no two mommies are exactly alike, every mommy makeover performed by Dr. Martin is a little different as well. The most common procedures included in this surgery are:
Dr. Martin offers variations on this procedure, depending on the amount of correction you need. He offers drainless tummy tucks, which patients have found to be much more comfortable than the traditional technique. In fact, one of his patients wrote after her procedure, “I am so happy he performs the drainless tummy tucks; I can’t imagine having to deal with those drains.” This patient also appreciated the fact that Dr. Martin eliminated a significant number of the stretch marks across her abdomen even as he trimmed away residual tissue and skin to create a smoother contour. The patient finished by saying, “I truly believe I had such a great [and] easy recovery due to Dr. Martin and his work!”
Changes to the breasts during pregnancy and because of breastfeeding can also be addressed with surgery. Patients may opt for augmentation using implants, reduction or a lift to reposition breasts to a more youthful profile. In some cases, a combination of these procedures may produce the best results. Patients also find that Dr. Martin’s careful attention to detail, focus on the needs of the patient and surgical techniques result in a comfortable recovery and the best possible results. Another of Dr. Martin’s breast augmentation patients said, “Dr. Martin made sure he understood the size and outcome I wanted from my surgery. I had very little pain after surgery and was able to get back to my life in a couple of days.”
Dr. Martin may recommend other procedures with your mommy makeover, including liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits or injectable treatments like Botox to smooth away fine lines and restore your youthful appearance.
