Mommy Makeover

Fred Wilder, M.D.

Pregnancy and motherhood are things to be celebrated. They are wonderful, life changing events. But, once the baby is born, sometimes it can be hard to regain your pre-pregnancy body, even with diet and exercise. Some of the unwelcome, lasting effects of pregnancy can include weight gain, fat accumulation in unusual areas, a stretched and/or bulging abdomen, loose and excess skin, and loss of breast firmness. Also, many women experience stretch marks and caesarean section scars. In many cases these effects can only be corrected with surgery. The Mommy Makeover at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute is the ideal solution to post-childbirth body troubles. Let us help you restore your body to its natural state of youthful beauty. The procedures we recommend in our Mommy Makeover are tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast lift. You may want to take advantage of all of the procedures recommended in our Mommy Makeover or you may have only one problem area you want us to help you with. Rest assured, either way, our board certified plastic surgeons will artfully perform whatever procedures you require to help revitalize and restore your body.

Tummy Tuck

After you have had a baby, if you can't flatten your stomach with a healthy diet and regular abdominal workouts, you might be in the market for an abdominoplasty (or Tummy Tuck). While such lifestyle changes can improve your health, they are often no match for excess fat and loose sagging skin that some women hold on to after having children. A tummy tuck will firm and smooth the abdomen by removing that excess fat and skin, and may also tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. If you want a leaner and more defined midsection than you have been able to achieve with diet or excercise, speak to one of our surgeons about a tummy tuck. APSI surgeons are skilled in tummy tuck procedures from the most basic to more extended, circumferential abdominoplasty surgeries.

Liposuction

It may not be only your abs that won't respond to diet and excercise after having a baby. Collections of fat in other areas of the body, which may have been present but unnoticed prior to pregnancy, may become more pronounced after childbirth. When you remove deposits of excess fat from these areas, a smoother, better proportioned body is the result.

Breast Lift

During pregnancy the breasts tend to grow due to hormonal changes. In addition to this, breast-feeding causes the breasts to stretch out and once you are finished breast-feeding your breasts can actually shrink to a size smaller than they were prior to your pregnancy. If you are unhappy with the sagging effects pregnancy and/or breast-feeding has had on your breasts, you could be a good candidate for a mastopexy (or breast lift). This procedure removes excess breast skin to raise, reshape and firm your breasts. You can also combine this procedure with breast implants to increase size while you reshape.
