Mommy Makeover Surgery in Washington DC
There are certain temporary changes you must prepare for when you learn you are pregnant. Changes to the way your body look are expected, like a large belly and enlarged breasts. What many women are not prepared for are the permanent changes to their figure and appearance that can come with pregnancy, like a loose and saggy tummy and/or saggy and deflated breasts. What makes these changes even more difficult to deal with is that there is very little you can do on your own to address them.
We offer a way for mothers to restore the beautiful appearance of their bodies and their comfort with their appearance: our mommy makeover. This amazing surgical package is catered to suit the specific needs of each patient we care for.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A Washington DC mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures designed to restore the appearance of the areas of the body that have been changed by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Some of the main areas heavily affected by pregnancy include the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, thighs, and flanks.
During your initial consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Troy Pittman, he will listen to your reasons for pursuing a mommy makeover and which specific aesthetic issues you want to address through surgery.
Dr. Pittman will examine the areas of your body you are unhappy with and will also identify any other areas that may require care. This information will be used to determine the procedures your mommy makeover will consist of. It is important to understand that this is not “cookie cutter” surgery. The cornerstone of Dr. Pittman’s practice is couture care. This means that a surgical plan is tailor made to each patient’s needs needs and desires.
Procedures that are commonly performed as part of a mommy makeover package include the following:
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
If your pregnancy has left you feeling unhappy with the appearance of your body, you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover. If your abdomen is plagued by sagging skin and pockets of stubborn fat, or if you are suffering from diastasis recti (separation of the abdominal muscles after pregnancy), tummy tuck is necessary.
Loose skin and excess fat can also be a problem in areas like your upper arms, flanks, and thighs. These issues can be addressed by including BodyTite treatments in your mommy makeover.
It is important to note that you should not undergo a mommy makeover if you plan on having more children after your procedure. Becoming pregnant can negatively affect your results and can make additional surgery necessary. The same issues may occur if you undergo significant weight gain after your procedure, so it is important that you diet and exercise to maintain a stable weight.
