It’s no secret that pregnancy and childbirth can take a major, and sometimes permanent toll on a woman’s body. A woman’s concerns don’t disappear after childbirth. They must deal with the added pressure of “bouncing back” to their pre-baby body. While this is possible, it can be extremely difficult. Many women who have children follow the latest diet trends, adhere to advice from other mom’s, or hope that their body just “snaps back.” The process of snapping back can be daunting, but every mother deserves to look and feel their best. The mommy makeover in Beverly Hills is a great solution for women who wish to take their body back.
Goals of a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills
The goal of a mommy makeover in Beverly Hills is to restore the look and shape of a woman’s body after childbirth. Pregnancy and childbirth can change various aspects of a woman’s body. Most notably, the breasts, stomach, and waist. These are often the areas that women are most concerned with in terms of satisfaction with their appearance.
While restoring the body is important, another goal of the mommy makeover is to restore confidence. Research has shown that women’s self-esteem decreases during pregnancy. After childbirth, there is a six-month period where self-esteem briefly increases. Beyond that, there is a decline again that lasts until the child is around three years old. While a mommy makeover is wonderful for your physical appearance, the boost in confidence is immeasurable.
Candidates for the Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills
While the mommy makeover is a great option for many women, there are certain factors that make someone a good candidate.
Candidates should meet the following:
- Body: You should be at your goal weight before the procedure.
- Health: You should be in good overall health. Discuss this at your consultation with Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker. Prepare to share your entire medical history.
- No More Plans for Children: You should be finished having children, as the goal of the procedure is to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy condition.
- Manage Expectations: While your surgeon wants to do their best to get your body back to its pre-baby condition, candidates need to have a realistic understanding of the restoration.
Mommy Makeover Procedure
Depending on the patient’s unique needs, a mommy makeover in Beverly Hills can consist of several procedures. It can be a combination of any of the following: breast lift or augmentation, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. After pregnancy women often experience physical changes such as sagging and deflation of the breasts and/or stretch marks or bulging of the excess skin on the abdomen.
The breast augmentation will provide you with firmer and fuller breasts. A breast augmentation is achieved by inserting breast implants into the breast area. This is helpful for anyone who has issues with sagging, abnormal shape, or asymmetrical breasts after childbirth.
The breast lift is slightly different as it addresses the breast issues without the support of an implant. The breast lift is designed to remove any excess skin and tighten the skin in the breast area to achieve firm and lifted breasts.
The tummy tuck will give the patient a flat and toned stomach while reducing stretch marks from weight gain and/or pregnancy. The procedure involves a horizontal incision above the pubic hairline. The skin is then cut upward toward the ribcage, and the abdomen muscles are tightened and repositioned. Any excess skin is removed and the belly button is repositioned to provide a natural look.
For those who have difficulty getting rid of fat through diet and exercise, liposuction can help. Liposuction is the removal of fat deposits from problem areas like the back, chest, cheeks, neck, upper arms, hips, or thighs. The surgeon will use a tube-like instrument to vacuum out the fatty deposits. The result is a smoother and trimmer figure in the area treated with liposuction.
