Motherhood provides rewards beyond measure, but unfortunately, it also takes a serious toll on your body. Following the birth of a child, you may be frustrated by sagging breasts and loose skin on your stomach that no amount of healthy eating and exercise can erase. Is it time for a mommy makeover?
More women have been opting for plastic surgery to get their pre-baby body back after they are done having children. The combination of procedures used to do this, which usually includes a breast lift, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, has recently come to be known as the “mommy makeover.” For some women, a mommy makeover may include all three procedures while for others, only two are necessary.
Most mommy makeovers include a breast lift to return sagging breasts to a more aesthetically pleasing position, breast augmentation to give a more attractive contour to breasts that may appear “deflated” — an unfortunate side effect of breast feeding, and a tummy tuck to resolve the issue of loose skin in the belly region. Some mommy makeovers may also include liposuction to remove stubborn fat lingering in the stomach, thigh or rear areas. You can, of course, opt for only the surgeries you need or want.
Some surgeries, like the breast lift and breast augmentation, may be performed at the same time. Others should be performed separately so your body has time to heal. Fort Lauderdale surgeon Dr. Kaplan will discuss your options with you and help you come to a decision as to which procedure should be performed first and when to schedule your remaining procedures.
During your consultation, which takes place here at our Fort Lauderdale office, you will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Kaplan and tour our surgical suite, which is located within our Fort Lauderdale office. Dr. Kaplan will discuss your needs and your goals with you and help you determine whether a mommy makeover at our Fort Lauderdale office is right for you.
You can expect to discuss your health history, and Dr. Kaplan will take measurements and photos for your record. He will also discuss the risks and benefits of each surgery that will be a part of your mommy makeover and make sure you understand the full scope of the process.
If you and Fort Lauderdale surgeon Dr. Kaplan agree that a mommy makeover is the right solution for you, your first surgery will be scheduled.
