Giving birth can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a woman's life. Unfortunately, pregnancy and breastfeeding can often result in unwanted changes in a woman's body. Theses can include excess skin, fat, and stretchmarks to the stomach area; sagging or drooping breasts; large and elongated areolas and nipples; stretching of the rectus muscles; and increased deposits of fat in the body, Many women experience these changes and find them to be non-reversible despite frequent exercise and a healthy diet. The loose and stretched skin and sagging breasts can improve somewhat over time, but the body never completely returns to the way it was before pregnancy.
Historically, women were sentenced to living with these pregnancy changes in their bodies. Currently, however, we have new and advanced cosmetic surgery techniques that are better then ever. Dr. Alex Colque uses these cosmetic surgery combinations to rejuvenate the breasts and stomachs of women's bodies back to the youthful firmness they enjoyed before having children. More and more women are seeking out these procedures known as mommy makeovers or post-maternity breast and body reshaping.
Dr. Colque provides the following common Mommy Makeover procedures:
Reasons for Considering a Mommy Makeover Cosmetic Surgery:
Sagging or deflated breasts which have lost their youthful appearance.
Excess fat to the stomach or "Mom's pooch".
Loose skin or stretch marks in the abdomen or tummy area.
- Unwanted fat pockets in the body that just won’t go away with exercise or dieting.
- Sagging or drooping skin of the thighs or buttocks.
- Bulging of the stomach wall due to the stretching of the inner muscles.
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
Every mommy makeover patient is unique and Dr. Alex Colque treats each patient individually. The specific procedures performed can vary. Dr. Colque will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan based on the areas of your changes and concerns to meet your goals and give you the best possible results.
Mommy Makeover breast enhancements can include a breast lift to raise the breasts back to their more youthful position on the chest and also raise the position of the nipple on the breast. Breast implants can also be placed with or without a lift to increase the volume of a deflated breast and give upper pole fullness, cleavage, and a more natural breast shape. Each person is unique and the specific procedures required to achieve your goals will be discussed with you during your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Colque.
Body procedures of a Mommy Makeover usually include a tummy tuck. This is the best cosmetic surgery to treat excess skin and fat of the abdomen. A tummy tuck also treats the stretched out underlying muscles to pull the abdomen tight and can remove stretch marks from pregnancy. Liposuction, thigh lifts and buttock enhancement can also be performed. Liposuction can be performed alone or in combination with a tummy tuck to address each woman’s specific concerns. A thigh lift removes excess and sagging skin and fat from the thighs leading to smother and more youthful thighs. Buttock augmentation can be performed using fat transferred from liposuction or with an implant to add volume and shape to the buttocks to look better both in and out of clothing.
Recovery from a Mommy Makeover cosmetic surgery depends on the specific of procedures performed. Most women who choose to have the procedures done at the same time do so to combine the recovery process. Post surgery instructions are given for the combination performed and most patients find the recovery to be very tolerable. Some patients may experience mild pain after a Mommy Makeover and this is usually well treated by oral pain medication.
