Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
There are few things that put more of a toll on the body than pregnancy. Throughout pregnancy, the belly expands, the breasts enlarge, and a significant amount of weight is gained. After a woman gives birth, her body continues to change, especially if she’s breastfeeding.
During this period, the breasts enlarge even further as the rest of the body tries to recover from the changes of the previous nine months. This is usually a much slower process than the pregnancy itself, and many women find that their body never quite returns to its pre-pregnancy state.
A mommy makeover addresses common cosmetic concerns after pregnancy to recontour the body. Dr. Vishnu Rumalla can combine breast and body procedures to give mommy makeover candidates in the Fort Worth, TX area the pre-pregnancy figure they desire. If you are wondering if you are an ideal mommy makeover candidate, consider the following questions:
Do You Want to Enhance Your Bust Line?
Pregnancy has a different effect on each woman, but in most cases, the bust line looks different after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Many women complain that their breasts are droopy and deflated after pregnancy. Considering the fluctuations in weight and the changes caused by milk coming in and then drying up, this is not a surprise.
While many women experience a loss of breast volume after pregnancy, there are those that find the breasts remain enlarged in the months after pregnancy and breastfeeding are over.
No matter what the specific complaints may be, Dr. Rumalla can perform breast surgery to enhance the size, shape, and lift of the breasts. Depending on each patient’s unique needs, a mommy makeover may involve a breast lift, breast implants, or breast reduction. We will personalize treatment to ensure your bust line looks just as perky and attractive as it did prior to pregnancy.
Do You Want a Flatter Tummy?
Many women admire their growing belly when they are pregnant, as it is a visual reminder of the life developing inside their body. However, once the baby has been born, most are eager for that belly to shrink. Unfortunately, it does take time to lose pregnancy weight, and even if a woman manages to drop all the pounds she gained during pregnancy, there is often loose skin around the belly.
This excess skin can give the tummy a rounded appearance, often creating a small “pooch” on the lower abdomen. A mommy makeover often involves a tummy tuck to flatten the tummy, remove excess skin, and tighten any abdominal muscles that may have loosened during pregnancy. This aspect of mommy makeover treatment gives women a flatter, more toned stomach.
Do You Have Stubborn Pockets of Fat?
Although pregnancy primarily effects the breasts and abdomen, many women gain weight all over the body when they are pregnant. Even if a woman gets back down to her pre-pregnancy weight after giving birth, it is not unusual to find that body contours have changed.
Many women develop unwanted pockets of fat that don’t seem to go away no matter how much they diet or exercise. Dr. Rumalla can perform liposuction as part of a mommy makeover procedure to eliminate this stubborn fat for good.
While mommy makeover liposuction primarily focuses on the abdomen, Dr. Rumalla can also sculpt the flanks, hips, buttocks, or thighs. Liposuction restores body contours to renew a woman’s confidence.
Are You in Good Health?
A mommy makeover procedure is meant to enhance the figure so that a woman feels confident and attractive. However, a patient’s health is always our first priority.
Dr. Rumalla will never perform cosmetic surgery if the patient is at an increased risk of surgical complications. Prior to any cosmetic treatment, Dr. Rumalla will go over a patient’s health history and current physical condition to ensure that she is a suitable candidate for cosmetic treatment.
The best way to find out if you are an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover is to undergo a personal consultation with Dr. Vishnu Rumalla. To set up a consultation and learn more about mommy makeover treatment, contact us at your earliest convenience.
