Your body goes through significant changes during pregnancy, and even after you lose weight, it may not return to its pre-pregnancy shape. That’s why Dr. Charles Feagin and Dr. William Owen offer mommy makeovers at their practice, Feagin and Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center. They can design a mommy makeover for each woman, carefully helping you choose which procedures to include in your makeover to achieve the body shape you envision. If you have questions about mommy makeovers, call their office in Dothan, Alabama, or book a consultation online.
You know you’ll have to lose weight after childbirth, but many women don’t expect their body to stay out of shape even after their pregnancy weight is gone. Skin naturally stretches during pregnancy, and sometimes you’re left with excess skin, a sagging tummy, or loss of breast volume: Problems that can’t be fixed with diet and exercise.
Mommy makeovers are custom-designed to restore your body shape after childbirth. Each makeover includes the combination of cosmetic procedures you need to take care of your specific concerns and achieve your goals.
Your mommy makeover can include any cosmetic procedure needed to achieve the body shape you envision. A few of the procedures commonly performed at Feagin and Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center include:
You may need a breast lift if your problem is sagging breasts. To restore volume, you may choose breast augmentation. You can also combine a lift with augmentation. If pregnancy left you with breasts that are larger than you want, you might prefer a breast reduction, a procedure that decreases breast size, uplifts, and reshapes.
A tummy tuck improves your shape by removing excess skin and tightening muscles. As a result, you gain a flatter abdomen and a thinner waist. It can also help eliminate stretch marks.
Liposuction contours your body by removing fat from problem areas. You can treat any part of your body using safe, traditional or ultrasonic liposuction at Feagin and Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center.
Treatments to help your face look younger can be paired with your body procedures during a mommy makeover. Nonsurgical options such as dermal fillers or Botox®, are more commonly used but on rare occasions surgical procedures may be done.
You may be anxious to move forward with a mommy makeover, but you’ll get the best results if you wait six months after you both lose your pregnancy weight and stop breastfeeding. This gives your breasts and skin enough time to return to a stable postpregnancy shape.
