WHAT ARE THE COMMON PROCEDURES ASSOCIATED WITH A WEST PALM BEACH MOMMY MAKEOVER?
For many women, becoming a mother fulfills a lifelong goal. While the experience can be fulfilling and transcend all expectations, it can also bring a lot of changes. Whether you’ve had one child or several, pregnancy can alter the way your body looks. For some, this isn’t a concern, but for many women, there is a desire to have “their beautiful body back.”
Some of the most common changes occur to the breasts and the abdomen. Sometimes the breasts will no longer be as full as they used to be, and the stomach can develop loose skin or loose muscles. For women in the West Palm Beach area who wish to address these concerns, we offer “mommy makeovers.”
Mommy makeovers can consist of one or more of the following:
Liposuction is done to remove areas of fat from various parts of the body. A cannula is inserted into the area, suctioning out unwanted fat. Liposuction is great for excess fat on the thighs and abdomen.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause dramatic changes in the breast. For many, the breasts begin to sag more and become less full, perhaps even decreasing in size. Breast size and fullness can be addressed with implants during a breast augmentation.
ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK)
After a pregnancy, many women are left with loose, sagging skin on the abdomen. Because the problem is excess skin, not excess fat, it cannot be addressed with liposuction. Tummy tucks allow the doctor to remove the excess skin, yielding a flatter, firmer stomach.
During your consultation, Dr. Jarial will sit down with you to discuss your concerns and perform a physical exam to come up with a treatment plan. Depending on the individual, many of these procedures may be performed on the same day. If you are in the West Palm Beach area and are ready to feel confident in your body again, call us today at (561) 249-0390.
