Mommy Makeover Techniques

Often women find that their post pregnancy and breast feeding body is not as tone and defined as they would like. For these women a mommy makeover can provide them with a refreshed shape addressing a number of problem areas at one time. Dr. Boudreaux combines procedures when he performs a Momnmy Makeover. The combined procedures often include breast augmentation, breast lifts, and tummy tucks. Because every woman carries the signs of childbearing differently these procedures are customized to each patient’s individual needs.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a mommy makeover refers to a combination of procedures performed the same day to improve a woman’s body after pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. Here at Northshore Plastic Surgery a mommy makeover typically focus on the stomach and breasts. Patients work closely with Dr. Boudreaux, to develop a plan that helps them look and feel their best.
Women’s bodies were specifically designed for reproduction, however after this experience much of her anatomy will be changed. This includes primarily women who have had the blessing of multiple pregnancies or multiple births. As we know the body undergoes many hormonal changes, such as breast engorging, fat storing to sustain both lives (mother and child) and they abdominal skin stretch with the growing baby. Because the signs of childbirth do not completely fade once you have had your bundle of joy, many women opt for a mommy makeover.
Our mommy makeover procedure here at Northshore Plastic Surgery addresses the tummy and breast primarily. Patients often tell us that they enjoyed the full breast’s they had during pregnancy and were able to continue to enjoy during breast feeding. Breast augmentation, breast lift or a combination of both will restore your breasts to the ideal shape and size. In you consultation with Dr. Boudreaux you to discover what procedures will be necessary to reach your goals. For the abdomen area we look at a tummy tuck this will address the few extra pounds accompanied by loose sagging skin. Dr. Boudreaux will look at your abdominal section to and talk with you about your desires. Together you will create a body contouring plan to address the stretchmark’s, the “muffin top” or “bulge” along with excess skin.
