Pregnancy and breastfeeding, while natural parts of life, can have unpleasant effects on a woman’s body. Stretch marks and skin that has lost its youthful resiliency, now sagging and drooping, can make a woman feel less attractive or self-conscious. At Stephens Plastic Surgery, our mommy makeover procedures will rejuvenate your figure, giving you back the youthful body you remember.
Contact us today at our Baton Rouge location to set up a consultation with Dr. Stephens, a board-certified plastic surgeon who will discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations.
A growing trend across the country and comprised of multiple procedures, a mommy makeover is designed to improve the appearance of unsightly stretch marks, restore a taut, firm abdomen, and lift and restore deflated or drooping breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. The procedures performed are chosen on an individual basis, depending on your unique cosmetic needs and concerns. But typically, a mommy makeover consists of a combination of the following procedures:
Medically termed an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is among the most common surgical procedures performed in the country. The procedure removes excess fat and skin to tighten and reshape the abdominal area, tightens the underlying muscle structure, and smooths or removes stretch marks on the lower abdomen.
As a result of pregnancy, breasts often lose their plump, youthful shape and elasticity. With a breast lift, an anchor-shaped incision or incision around the areola is made. The nipples may be repositioned on the restored breast mound to be facing front or reduced in size for a more appealing look. By relocating the areola and removing excess skin, the breast is lifted and perkier, restoring a youthful, rounded shape and appearance.
For mothers who experienced breastfeeding their children, their breasts may now appear deflated, flat, and have lost volume. In these cases, Dr. Stephens may suggest a breast augmentation or enhancement. Both saline and silicone implants are available, and it will be determined during your consultation which will be best for your individual needs.
In areas of excess fat such as the abdomen and stomach, liposuction may be used to surgically vacuum fat out. Often used in conjunction with the tummy tuck, this procedure extracts excess fat, followed by the surgical aspects of a tummy tuck to tighten and resculpt the muscles and skin.
Doctor Stephens also offers other cosmetic procedures, which can be discussed during your consultation. You will be informed of the possible risks and side effects of these procedures by Dr. Stephens as well the aftercare details, so you are fully informed about what to expect.
A mommy makeover is customized to suit your personal aesthetic goals. The set of procedures performed can achieve the following:
Dr. Stephens is a caring, talented, board-certified plastic surgeon who has dedicated his professional life to cosmetic enhancements. A consummate professional in the art of plastic surgery, he has established a fully accredited outpatient surgical suite so you can have your mommy makeover in a safe, private space, where patient health and safety are always managed professionally.
For women who are considering having more children or who may not be safe for surgery these procedures are probably not appropriate. Good candidates include those who have sagging stomach skin and breasts that lack volume and/or shape, are in general good health, do not have any medical conditions that impair surgery or healing, are non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about what a mommy makeover can and cannot do.
As every mommy makeover is custom, the final cost is impossible to determine without meeting with you and discussing what you hope to achieve. One advantage related to the costs of a mommy makeover is that several procedures can be performed in one surgical appointment, which brings savings. If you want the treatment and are looking for financing options, our friendly administrative staff would be happy to help.
