Mommy Makeovers: Popular Plastic Surgery for Moms
If you are a Houston mommy looking for a makeover to rejuvenate your appearance and confidence post-baby, you have many options. At the Houston plastic surgery offices of Dr. Azita Madjidi, we have several options to bring your post-baby body back to its pre-baby beauty.
Why Have a Mommy Makeover?
A “mommy makeover” can describe several surgeries currently trending for new mothers after they have had one or more children. Pregnancy, child birth, and nursing can drastically change a woman’s body in ways that might be difficult to reverse through exercise or diet.
Even with a strict workout regimen, many women retain loose skin around the belly, extra fat stores on their bodies or breasts, and skin that has stretched and now sags more than it did before baby. Houston plastic surgery expert Dr. Madjidi and our team treat each of our patients with respect and care, striving to understand their desires and goals when considering plastic surgery.
Dr. Madjidi is practiced in several plastic surgery techniques that can help recover patients’ confidence and appearance after child birth. Many of our patients receive one or more of these procedures.
For moms in Houston, breast lift is just one of the procedures we offer. If your breasts have lost elasticity and fullness because of breastfeeding or because of a change in shape and size during pregnancy, you can benefit from a breast lift.
During a breast lift, Dr. Madjidi will tighten the skin of the breast and lift the nipple higher on the breast, creating a more youthful, firmer, and symmetrical look to your breasts.
A breast augmentation is sometimes done in conjunction with a breast lift or as a surgery on its own. Breast augmentation is an excellent option for women who are done having children and would like larger breasts that are resistant to drooping and changes in shape as they age.
A breast augmentation can add volume and a fuller shape to breasts that may have become smaller or misshapen during pregnancy or breast feeding. During a breast augmentation, Dr. Madjidi will insert silicone or saline implants using an incision around the nipple or below the breast. Implants can be inserted above or below the breast muscle depending upon your specific desires.
Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures offered at our Houston plastic surgery practice. The procedure is ideal for women who desire to lose excess fat from different areas of their body after pregnancy. Pregnancy can cause women not previously prone to weight gain to accumulate excess fat around their midsection, legs, or arms.
Dr. Madjidi has several options for you if you are considering liposuction, including canula tools, or traditional liposuction, as well as laser and ultrasound technologies. You and our professional staff can decide which liposuction techniques are best to achieve the results you would like.
Body contouring is the surgical removal and tightening of excess skin. Some women opt after pregnancy to have a full-body contouring, which involves several surgeries to tighten the skin on your arms, legs, buttocks, and midsection.
Body contouring is an excellent option for women who have lost baby weight but are having difficulty regaining the elasticity and appearance of youthful, supple skin.
Women with extra weight or skin around their lower midsection can benefit greatly and see dramatic results from a tummy tuck, a procedure that is less extensive than full-body contouring but can create noticeable, beautiful results.
During a tummy tuck, Dr. Madjidi will remove extra fat and skin from your belly area, tighten your abdominal muscles, and reposition your bellow button. These can create a smaller waist and firmer and suppler abdominal skin, along with the removal of stretch marks below the navel.
A mini tummy tuck is an excellent option for women with slightly less excess skin between their navel and pubic bone. It is a less intensive procedure that offers smooth, tightened results in the centralized area below your belly button.
