Mommy Makeover New Jersey
What if you could bring your bundle(s) of joy into the world without the unwelcome changes of pregnancy or nursing? You are relatively young and energetic. Does looking at your body make you feel old or unhappy? Top New Jersey Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Beverly Friedlander can help change this with a mommy makeover.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover procedure has become very popular with women who feel they have lost their youthful appearance and wish to feel better about themselves, while still devoting heart and soul to their families. A mommy makeover can consist of a combination of procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or a breast lift.
What to expect from a Mommy Makeover
Each mommy makeover performed at our New Jersey office is unique. It is designed to counteract the physical changes that come with childbirth. These changes differ from one mother to the next. Think of your friend who gained a lot of weight with her pregnancy and now has loose skin on her tummy and breasts, or your other friend who always looks tired or angry although she seems never to be stressed, or even yourself and your clothes that just don’t fit the same anymore. All of these unwanted changes result from pregnancy and the weight and hormonal fluctuations that occur with it. By addressing each of these problems in a mommy makeover operation it is possible to restore more youthful contours and help you to feel better about yourself. You may find yourself not shying away from that bathing suit, and actually enjoying going to the pool or beach with the kids, or feeling comfortable wearing shorts. Some women express a renewed interest in intimacy after the procedure.
Dr. Friedlander will work closely with you to create the procedure that is best suited for you. Typically this will involve the breast and or tummy, but can involve any area of the body. As a new mom, you may not be sleeping, and you may become more aware of the bags below you eyes or of your heavy upper eyelids. Chances are they were present before the pregnancy, but may have become worse because of weight changes, gravity, hormonal changes and the reduced amount of time available to pamper yourself. Considering that many of us are starting a family later in life, changes in our skin or body should not come as much of a surprise.*
Knowing your options is the first step to determining what you want to change. All of these options are described in greater detail elsewhere on this site. Pregnancy and nursing typically result in a breast that is smaller, and sometimes droopier than before. You may benefit from a breast augmentation or breast lift. The tummy can stretch leaving loose skin, extra fat and poor muscle tone. You might benefit from a tummy tuck or possibly liposuction. There may be extra fatty deposits on the thighs or flanks that would be improved with liposuction. All of these procedures can be safely combined, allowing you to improve your body with one surgery, and one recovery.*
