Cosmetic procedures can help women restore their skin, breasts, and figure following pregnancy.Motherhood is a wonderful thing, and it certainly changes a person inside and out. However, just because you love your children doesn’t mean you need to carry the marks of bearing them for the rest of your life. At Mira Aesthetic Medical Center, we offer many different cosmetic procedures that can help you get your body back after pregnancy. Come in for a consultation and find out which surgical or non-surgical procedures can help you achieve your goals.
CORRECTING SKIN CHANGES
One common complaint among women following pregnancy is stretch marks on the abdomen. Laser treatments or phototherapy can be used to minimize the redness and visibility of the marks. However, typically these treatments are only effective on newly formed stretch marks, so you will need to act fast. You’ll see the best results when the marks are less than a year old. Many women also experience increased pigmentation of the face during pregnancy, which can make imperfections more noticeable. If the increased pigmentation persists after pregnancy, or if you just can’t ignore the imperfections anymore even without the increased pigmentation, you could consider chemical peels or laser treatments to minimize them.
RESTORING YOUR BREASTS
Following pregnancy and breast feeding, many women find that their breasts have lost their perkiness. One relatively simple solution is a breast lift. Breast implants or fat transfer to the breast could also be considered. These treatments would be especially helpful in correcting the loose skin on breasts caused by weight loss following pregnancy. Before including breast augmentation in your “mommy makeover,” bear in mind that many women have complications with breastfeeding after breast surgeries. It is best to leave this surgery until after you have had your last child.
SCULPTING YOUR FIGURE
Even with dieting and exercise, many women need a little extra help getting their figures back after a pregnancy. You may choose to get liposuction or liposculpting to spot-reduce fat in trouble areas. Following a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles often become weakened and it is very difficult to get rid of that paunchy little “mom belly.” A tummy tuck is an excellent way to eliminate the paunch and cut away some of your stretch marks at the same time. Before you consider any cosmetic surgeries for your body, be sure you have finished breastfeeding and achieved a normal weight. Ideally you should wait six months after achieving your normal or ideal weight in order to make sure you get the best results from your procedures.
