Get Your Pre-baby Body Back with a Mommy Makeover
Having a child is a life-changing experience that brings joy and love into a woman’s life. However, carrying a child can prove troublesome for a woman’s youthful shape and contours. Many women experience sagging and loss of elasticity in their breasts and bellies after giving birth, and vigorous exercise and healthy dieting alone often cannot restore their body to its pre-motherhood figure. With a mommy makeover at our Nova Scotia office, led by our skilled plastic surgeons Richard Bendor-Samuel and Louis Boileau, you can enjoy a renewed, youthful figure after pregnancy and childbirth. Call us today for a personal consultation.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers are a growing trend in the world of plastic surgery. Combining several procedures designed to target the areas most affected by pregnancy, a mommy makeover is a custom-designed treatment plan that can rejuvenate your appearance and self-confidence. Many women decide that getting their pre-baby body back makes the cost of a mommy makeover well worth it.
A wealth of experience allows us to plan makeovers that maximize patient results, while minimizing the amount of surgery required. In some cases, especially those involving a breast procedure and tummy tuck, we may offer patients an extended stay and with us, providing a private room and semi-private nurse (one nurse to every two patients) until going home early the next morning.
Reshape Your Bust
While you are pregnant, your breasts will grow as they prepare to feed your infant. After you have stopped breast feeding, your breasts may lose their fullness and elasticity, causing them to noticeably shrink and sag. Depending on your specific needs, your mommy makeover may involve breast augmentation to increase their size, a breast lift to restore their perkiness, or a breast reduction combined with a breast lift to improve their overall shape, size, and symmetry. Before your mommy makeover, we will consult with you to determine your goals and expectations, and educate you on relevant procedures, risks and your treatment options.
Trim and Tone
Healthy lifestyle habits alone might not reduce the excess fat and skin that lingers around the midsection after giving birth. The stretched abdominal skin can stand in the way of achieving a flat stomach, which might make you significantly less confident about your figure. Using a host of body contouring techniques, such as liposuction (to remove pockets of fat) and a tummy tuck (to repair weakened abdominal muscles and tone the stomach), we can eliminate excess skin and fat to create a more attractive body profile.
Restore a Youthful Glow
The face is the first thing people notice about you, and the condition of your skin can significantly impact your image and self-esteem. BOTOX® Cosmetic and our host of gentle, effective skin treatments can help eliminate wrinkles and improve the tone and texture of your skin. After a thorough consultation and examination, we can help you decide which facial rejuvenation treatment is best to enhance your appearance.
