Motherhood can be one of the most exciting moments in a woman’s life. There can also be dramatic changes to their bodies as well. The effects of pregnancy can leave undesirable features behind, including stretch marks, loose skin, and excess fat. A Scottsdale mommy makeover is a popular treatment that new moms turn to recover their youthful pre-pregnancy bodies.
The toll that pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can have on a new mommy’s body can be devastating in emotional and physical ways. Even with the proper diet and exercise, oftentimes it is near impossible to restore one’s body.
Following pregnancy, breasts can begin to show a loss of volume and loosening skin. Dr. Malek specializes in breast augmentation or breast lift procedures to tighten and makeover the area and help a new mommy recover a more appealing look. He minimizes the amount of incisions and only makes the smallest ones. His treatments can deliver a more firm, balanced, and voluminous appearance to the breasts.
For patients experiencing stubborn fat in the abdomen and waist areas, tummy tucks can provided the desired solution. During this procedure, the muscles become tightened and accommodate a more firm tummy. Patients can compare their waistline and see the difference this cosmetic makeover procedure has made to their bodies.
The skin and muscle tissues in the abdominal areas stretch during pregnancy and will result in loose, flabby skin. Even after weight loss, training and dieting, the skin may retain this loose and unsightly appearance. An abdominoplasty, also known as a Tummy Tuck, can revitalize your stomach and abdominal area by removing excess skin, tightening the inner walls of your stomach muscles, and removing unwanted fatty deposits through liposuction, creating a tighter, flatter, and more attractive abdominal profile. The use of liposuction during the Tummy Tuck portion of the Mommy Makeover allows for the removal of excess fat that develops during pregnancy and handle the stubborn areas that are unaffected by dieting and exercise.
Mastopexy, or ‘Breast Lift’, reconstructs the breast in such a way that excess fat and skin is removed, thus tightening breast tissue, achieving a ‘lifted’ appearance, which recovers an appearance similar to that of your pre-pregnancy, youthful breast contours. The mastopexy will also treat the tissue surrounding the nipple, or areola, which can frequently become stretched due to the changes experienced by a new mommy.
If you desire fuller, larger breasts, the surgeon can perform a Breast Augmentation along with the lift. This cosmetic enhancement procedure uses either saline or silicone breast implants to create a bust line that is, perhaps, larger and fuller than the patients’ pre-pregnancy breast size. Once again, the option of Breast Augmentation should be discussed with your doctor in your consultation prior to surgery to determine the best course of treatment during your makeover.
The Breast Reduction surgery can be a valuable option for women experiencing discomfort due to large breasts, these can cause back pain and discomfort from childbirth or a pre-pregnancy condition. Reduction mammaplasty is a procedures that is designed for breast reduction by removing excess skin, fat, and tissues of the breast, alleviating any pain or discomfort.
Regardless of the combination of procedures you choose to have, the ultimate goal of a Mommy Makeover is to achieve a tighter stomach, fuller, higher breasts and recover the body you had pre-childbirth.
