Having a child is a turning point in a woman’s life. Although mothers
gladly make sacrifices for the sake of their children, mothers also deserve
to have a positive self-image. A
mommy makeover is a customizable procedure or set of procedures that can help women reclaim
their pre-pregnancy bodies. If you’re ready to take some time for
yourself, you can talk to Dr. Geoghegan about the procedures that may
be right for you.
Plastic surgeons often perform tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties, on mothers
who are having mommy makeovers. Pregnancy causes extensive stretching
of the abdominal muscles and connective tissues. After giving birth, women
often try exercise to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. Unfortunately,
sit-ups and crunches cannot reconnect separated abdominal muscles. During
a tummy tuck, Dr. Geoghegan tightens the connective tissues, repairs the
abdominal muscles, and creates a sleek silhouette.
Liposuction is often performed along with a tummy tuck. Dr. Geoghegan
can remove excess fat from the abdominal area; however, liposuction is
not intended to be a primary method of weight loss. Liposuction can also
help target stubborn fat in areas such as the hips, thighs, buttocks,
and even the chin.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is not the same as a breast reduction or
augmentation. However, it may be performed along with reduction or augmentation.
After giving birth, many women become dissatisfied with the appearance
of sagging or stretched breasts. During a breast lift, Dr. Geoghegan repositions
and reshapes the tissues, and removes excess skin. The result is a youthful profile.
Breast Reduction or Augmentation
After pregnancy, women may become dissatisfied with lost breast volume
and may choose to increase breast size with implants. In some mothers,
the breasts swell considerably during pregnancy, which may cause pain
and poor posture. These women may be good candidates for breast reduction surgery.
