Pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding can cause overwhelming changes to your body. You will likely see changes in your tummy and breasts as well as an increase in stubborn fat deposits throughout your body. These changes often don’t respond to diet and exercise, and they can seem permanent. However, Mommy Makeover surgery can restore your body and help you feel like yourself again. A Mommy Makeover typically includes liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast lift or augmentation. However, Charles Galanis, M.D., can help you determine which procedures are right for you; Mommy Makeover surgery is fully customizable, perfectly tailored to you, and designed to achieve your ultimate treatment goals.
The Mommy Makeover is personalized to meet your desired results. While most Mommy Makeover surgeries include the “typical” procedures mentioned above, you can choose to omit any of these, or you may want to include additional procedures such as an arm lift, a thigh lift, or a skin rejuvenation treatment. Dr. Galanis will help you decide on the procedures to get you the results you want. Each procedure you choose will also be specifically tailored to your needs.
BREAST LIFT OR AUGMENTATION
Your breast procedure will depend on whether you want to lift your breasts to a more youthful position on your chest or enhance your cup size. If desired, you can combine breast lift and augmentation in order to enhance the shape, size, and position of your breasts.
If you’re looking to lift your breasts, the specific technique and requirements will depend on the degree of sagging you are experiencing. More sagging requires more adjustment of the breast tissues and a bigger incision, but this provides more obvious, dramatic results.
If you’re looking to enhance your cup size with breast augmentation, you can personalize the procedure by choosing the type of implants (saline or silicone) as well as the cup size you wish to be.
After childbirth, the midsection can look dramatically different than it did prior to your pregnancy. A tummy tuck can address changes such as excess skin, stretched muscles, and stubborn fat pockets. Charles Galanis, M.D., will remove excess skin and fat, restore loose muscles, and tighten the skin to remove any sagging to give you a firm and toned midsection.
Liposuction can be done in various places throughout the body. The use of a cannula (a small suction device) means that Dr. Galanis can be very precise in removing fat and can give you natural, subtle contours.
The drastic changes that happen to your body after having a baby can have an effect on how you view yourself. Gaining weight and the inability to lose it quickly can lower your self-confidence and make you more conscious about your appearance. By choosing a Mommy Makeover, you can address the specific areas of your body that you’re not happy with and choose your results. This will help you regain confidence in yourself as you restore your pre-baby body!
BETTER FIT TO CLOTHING
Post-baby, the proportions of your body can be drastically different. This can cause clothing to not fit very well. Additionally, pieces of clothing that fit well on one part of the body might not look great on another area. Because a Mommy Makeover can target specific areas to adjust your proportions, your clothing can fit perfectly again!
