Mommy Makeovers may seem like the new buzzword. While the term might be trending, women have been seeking cosmetic surgery after having children for years. Each woman’s body will naturally try to return to pre-pregnancy shape at its own rate. But sometimes women don’t feel completely themselves and begin considering plastic surgery to restore their image and confidence. In a recent interview on WMAR, Baltimore mommy makeover expert, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, states that “mommy makeover” is simply any combination of cosmetic procedures performed together meant to return the body to the desired pre-pregnancy shape or better.
Common procedures involved in a Baltimore mommy makeover include:
Breast Augmentation – breast implants or your own fat can be used to increase the volume of the breasts
Breast Lift – a lift can elevate the nipple/areola to a more aesthetic position
Breast Reduction – decreasing the size of the breasts can create a more aesthetic and balanced appearance to the body
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) – removing the excess belly skin and tightening the muscles can lead to a flatter bely
Liposuction – removing excess fat of the flanks/love handles can augment the results of a tummy tuck
Healthy diets and exercise can help with weight loss post pregnancy. However, for some cosmetic surgery is the best option to get rid of stubborn fat and excess skin and to rejuvenate their breasts. Recovery varies depending upon the procedure that you get, and Dr. Schreiber is keenly aware of post-operative discomfort so he takes the extra step to make everything as comfortable as possible. Women should also have ceased breast feeding to allow their breasts to return to a normal size and shape.
The Baltimore mommy makeover cost varies depending on how many cosmetic procedures are performed. There is no “one price fits all” cost and every person is unique in body shape, so let Dr. Schreiber listen to what your aesthetic desires are and he will offer you a customized procedure plan to accomplish your goals.
