Postpartum Issues for Mommy MakeoverBecoming a mother is one of the most rewarding experiences a woman can have in her life. However, there are many common postpartum issues that aren’t commonly talked about. After giving birth and breastfeeding, you may experience changes in your body that you weren’t expecting.

Stretched Stomach Muscles and Loose Abdominal Skin

During pregnancy, your stomach muscles and skin are stretched to their maximum. After delivery, it can take weeks to months for your body to reverse some of the pregnancy related changes, but you might never experience the same tight abs that you enjoyed before pregnancy. A tummy tuck may be able to repair stretched muscles and reduce the appearance of loose skin on the abdomen.  In addition, combining liposuction can further improve contour.

Sagging Breasts and Drooping Nipples

Your breasts may expand during pregnancy and breastfeeding, only to sag as they lose volume afterward. Breast augmentation and breast lift may help you achieve the fuller, more youthful looking breasts that you had before your pregnancy. Nipple position may also be improved with breast surgery.

Stubborn Fat Deposits

Gaining weight is a natural part of pregnancy, but retaining deposits of fat in the abdomen area is often an unwanted side effect. Although liposuction is not a weight loss tool, it may be used to remove stubborn fat deposits that have not responded well to diet and exercise.

Many women benefit from the mommy makeover procedure, which can combine tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgery in an effort to more fully rejuvenate your overall appearance. In consultation with Dr. Orringer, you can decide which procedures may be right for you.

Please call 310-273-1663 today to schedule your mommy makeover consultation with Dr. Jay Orringer.  We welcome patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Hollywood, California, nationally, and internationally.
