Pregnancy can dramatically alter the appearance of the body. As Louisville’s most reputable plastic surgeon, Dr. Sean Maguire has helped many women in Kentucky to recapture their pre-pregnancy bodies. He shares the reasons why his patients are so enthusiastic about their mommy makeover procedures and results.
The Experience Is Customizable
Mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgeries. The four procedures that patients most frequently incorporate are breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction and abdominoplasty, but patients are not limited to this list. During the consultation phase, Dr. Maguire discusses the patient’s aesthetic goals and then devises a surgical plan that best fulfills those wishes. For example, if the patient would like to add a facial procedure or body lift to the traditional mommy makeover procedures, Dr. Maguire can accommodate.
Restores Pre-Pregnancy Body
Many women who have never given much thought to plastic surgery become interested in cosmetic enhancement after seeing what pregnancy can do to the body. Women who had no trouble maintaining a flat tummy previously may discover that the fat stubbornly clings to their midsection even after taking off most of the baby weight. Moreover, the skin that stretched to cover the pregnant belly may not snap back into place. Liposuction can address the lingering pockets of fat, while abdominoplasty can firm up the stomach skin. A tummy tuck is also useful for repairing the abdominal muscles that shift out of place during pregnancy.
The breasts also go through changes: they enlarge when a woman breastfeeds and then lose volume once nursing is complete. The breasts are also likely to droop after breastfeeding. Breast lift and breast augmentation can correct these unwanted changes and restore their pre-pregnancy appearance and positioning.
Convenience of Having Multiple Procedures at Once
It is not practical for most mothers to space out surgeries, which is why many women are relieved to learn that they have the option of having multiple cosmetic procedures performed on one day. This makes it possible to go through recovery just one time and means less downtime and fewer days of arranging childcare. Combining the procedures also saves money because you only pay anesthesia and facility costs once.
An Opportunity to Do Something for Yourself
Being a mother is a rewarding, but demanding role. Since raising children requires endless time and attention, it can be difficult to maintain a sense of self. Some of the happiest mothers are those who find a balance between being a mother and being their own person.
It is perfectly acceptable to want to feel beautiful and confident after having a baby. Dr. Maguire’s mommy makeover patients relish the opportunity to take care of their bodies and prioritize themselves for a period of time.
