Mommy Makeover Houston

As women, we pay a lot of attention to our physical appearance. We dress up and highlight our best features in order to make a lasting impression. Unfortunately, sometimes we feel so self-conscious about our bodies that we just don’t feel like making the effort. This is especially true after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body. Although it’s a pure and beautiful process, it’s still mentally and physically exhausting. However, there are ways in which you can cope with the changes in your body.

The mommy makeover is a package of procedures for women who want to restore their body after these changes. A mommy makeover only requires a single surgical session, meaning you won’t have to experience multiple recovery periods. The following are some of the surgeries that can be included in a patient’s mommy makeover package.

Breast Augmentation

In some cases, women experience a loss of breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding, causing them to feel self-conscious. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that increases your breast size and projection, giving you fuller breasts. With this procedure, you can restore or even enhance your breast size by having implants placed under your chest muscles or your breast tissue.

Before the procedure, you’ll have a detailed talk with Dr. Gill about the specifications of your implants, options for implant placement, incision options, your expectations from the surgery, and more.

Breast Lift

The breast lift, also known as mastopexy surgery, is a procedure that restores the shape of sagging breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Most women who choose to have this surgery do so because they’re conscious about drooping breasts or nipples that point downwards. This procedure fixes these problems effectively.

The procedure involves removal of excess skin. The remaining tissue is then reshaped and tightened to raise the breasts and restore firmness. Asymmetry can be addressed through this procedure, and repositioning and resizing the areolae can also be performed.

Tummy Tuck

After childbirth, the abdominal area may be left with excess fat, loose skin, drooping muscle tissue, and stretch marks. The tummy tuck, also known as the abdominoplasty, is a procedure that can address all of these issues. Abdominoplasty gives you firmer and shapelier contours for a fitter appearance.

During this procedure, excess fat is removed using liposuction, hanging skin is trimmed with a scalpel, and the weak underlying muscles are tightened with internal sutures. When excess skin is removed, stretch marks on this skin are also taken care of.

Liposuction

In the months after giving birth, many women feel embarrassed about the stubborn fat that remains. Even those who can find the time to diet and exercise on a regular basis may be stuck with these flabby areas. Liposuction is a great way to get rid of this unwanted fat. It helps to shape the contours of your body, giving you a fitter, slimmer look.

Liposuction employs a suction technique in order to remove fat from various regions of your body. It can be used on areas like your midsection, hips, arms, buttocks, thighs, knees, back, and neck.
