A woman has the incredible power of giving birth to a new life, and motherhood can be one of the most blissful experiences in the world. Unfortunately, the process of bringing a new life into this world comes with a heavy toll in the form of emotional stress and excruciating pain.

Not only that, many physical changes occur in the body before, during, and after pregnancy. Some women experience a change in their breast size and many gain belly fat. These physical changes can result in serious body-image issues.

If not addressed on time, these issues can snowball into major psychological disorders. Women are warriors and deserve better. Pregnancy should be bliss and not a scarring experience. Thanks to advancements in medical science, getting your pre-pregnancy body back is easier than ever before with the help of a mommy makeover.

What Can I Include in My Mommy Makeover?

From breast augmentation to a tummy tuck, Dr. White performs a number of procedures every day to help patients who have given birth get their youthful body back.

Whether you became a mother recently or years ago, a mommy makeover is a great way to combine multiple rejuvenation and enhancement procedures. In this post, we will take a look at some of these procedures.

Breast Augmentation

After breastfeeding, you may find that your breasts have reduced in size by one or more cup sizes. To restore the breasts to their former size or enhance them to a larger size than they were before pregnancy, Dr. White performs breast augmentation.

The process involves creating incisions and then placing silicone or saline breast implants under the woman’s chest muscles or under the breast tissue.

In most cases, breast augmentation does not impact breastfeeding, as long as the woman’s breasts were able to produce milk before the procedure.

Breast Lift

Sagging breasts are one of the most common side-effects of pregnancy. During pregnancy, ligaments supporting the breasts enlarge and sag, causing the breasts to droop. In most cases, the problem does not self-correct. Many women with sagging breasts after pregnancy opt for a breast lift, which focuses on reshaping the woman’s breasts.

To achieve the desired shape, Dr. White gets rid of excess breast skin and tightens the breasts. The areolae and nipples may be altered to ensure that they are symmetrical and fit the new proportions of the breasts. The standard lift, lollipop lift, and donut lift are common types of breast-lift procedures.

Augmentation Mastopexy

Augmentation mastopexy combines a breast lift and augmentation. To achieve the desired breast size and shape, Dr. White removes excess skin and places implants in the breasts.

Breast Reduction

A breast-reduction surgery is performed to reduce the size of disproportionately large breasts after pregnancy. Dr. White removes excess skin, glandular tissue, and fatty tissue to make the breasts lighter.

Tummy Tuck

To flatten the abdomen, Dr. White performs a tummy tuck. This procedure removes extra skin and stubborn fat from the abdomen. It rejoins and tightens sagging abdominal muscles, a condition known as diastasis recti. This condition often occurs as a result of pregnancy. In some cases, the tummy tuck can also remove stretch marks.

Post-Operative Care

• Avoid physically demanding activities for at least a month after your surgery.
• Wear a post-surgical bra for at least six weeks after the procedure.
• For speedy recovery, sleep on your back.
• Stay away from hot tubs for a few weeks after the procedure.
• Avoid exposure to UV rays for a time.
• Clean the incision sites regularly.
• When cleaning the operated areas, make sure to keep the dressings dry.
