Motherhood is one of the greatest gifts in life, yet the effects of carrying a baby can leave your body looking tired. At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, we offer several surgical and non-surgical options to restore your body, including tummy tucks, breast lifts, breast augmentation, liposuction, Mommy Makeovers, and CoolSculpting®.
Flatten Your Abdomen with a Tummy Tuck
The midsection is one of the areas of the body that is most affected by pregnancy. You store fat in your tummy area, and the skin and muscles are stretched. After you give birth, you may find that your stomach looks loose and lacks the tone and shape that it had before you got pregnant. A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and the lax muscles can be tightened with sutures. Recovery after a tummy tuck may take six weeks or longer.
A Breast Lift Means No More Droopy Breasts
Once you stop breastfeeding, your breast size starts to decrease, and you may find that your breasts are no longer perky. Sagging is a frustrating problem for mothers because the breasts are associated with how feminine a woman feels. Fortunately, sagging breasts can be corrected with a breast lift. The procedure works by removing excess skin to give the breasts a more lifted and compact appearance. You may need six weeks or longer to fully recover from a breast lift.
Restore Fullness with Breast Augmentation
Not only is sagging a problem after pregnancy. Many women find that their breasts have less volume after childbirth. Breast augmentation involves the placement of silicone or saline implants in the breasts to restore volume and shape. The procedure can be combined with a breast lift if you also have sagging in your breasts. Plan to spend a couple days at home resting after surgery. Healing from breast augmentation can take six weeks or longer.
Say Goodbye to Fat with Liposuction
If you only have a few areas of excess fat and no sagging skin, liposuction may be a good option. The procedure involves making small incisions in the treatment area, such as the buttocks, abdomen, thighs or other areas. A thin tube is inserted through the incision and used to loosen and remove fat from the area. Liposuction requires little downtime and may be combined with other procedures without extending the recovery period.
Mommy Makeover: Tailored to Your Needs
What if you want to improve more than one area of your body after pregnancy? This is where a Mommy Makeover is the perfect solution. A Mommy Makeover is a series of procedures that are customized to your needs. The procedures may be combined into a single surgical appointment, or we can schedule them over time.
