Mommy Makeover in Worcester, MA
Pregnancy and lactation often take a huge toll on a woman’s body in ways that diet and exercise can’t fully address. At Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom provides mommy makeover procedures for women in Shrewsbury and surrounding communities in Massachusetts who want to restore their pre-pregnancy shape.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover combines several cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate and tighten a woman’s body following pregnancy and lactation. Pregnancy may result in loss of definition at the waistline, stretch marks, lax abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, sagging skin in the abdominal region, and other cosmetic concerns. The mommy makeover combines various procedures to address these concerns and restore a tight, firm tummy and waistline. The Mommy Makeover is a highly personalized procedure, addressing each patient’s unique shape and condition. The Mommy Makeover combines any of the following procedures:
Pregnancy and lactation affect the shape and size of a woman’s breasts, often resulting in sagging and lack of volume. Breast enhancement procedures, such as breast augmentation, often in combination with a breast lift, restore the breasts’ fullness and firmness following pregnancy and lactation.
A tummy tuck may eliminate stretch marks, sagging skin, scars from a C-section or other surgery, as well as tighten lax abdominal muscles and creates definition in the waistline.
Liposuction may be included in your mommy makeover to eliminate any accumulation of fatty deposits in areas not corrected by the tummy tuck or breast enhancement.
Why Should I Consider Getting a Mommy Makeover?
Dr. Ekstrom is sensitive to the many changes a woman’s body endures during pregnancy, childbirth, and lactation, and recommends mommy makeover procedures for many of her patients who want to rejuvenate their figure after having children. A mommy makeover may even improve or enhance your pre-pregnancy shape, adding volume and firmness to your breasts, eliminating fatty deposits from thighs, hips, waist, buttocks and other areas, and trimming away sagging skin from the abdomen and thighs. We use the latest technology and state-of-the-art procedures to achieve natural, lasting results.
The mommy makeover provides the following benefits:
- Lifts and augments sagging breasts
- Trims away loose skin and stretch marks around and below the midsection
- Tightens abdominal muscles after pregnancy and childbirth
- Redefines the waistline
- Eliminates stubborn fatty deposits from any area of the body
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Even if you’re not a mom you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover! Any adult woman in generally good health who is not pregnant or lactating, nor planning to become pregnant again, may make an excellent candidate for this cosmetic procedure. If you are interested in having children in the future, we recommend postponing the procedure until after you have all your children.
Recovering from a Mommy Makeover
Soreness and swelling following the mommy makeover are normal, although these symptoms resolve themselves after a few days. Dr. Ekstrom will recommend that you wear compression garments following the surgery to fully support your new shape, and to hold sensitive tissue in place, as well as to reduce swelling and discomfort, and assist the healing process. Most patients are able to resume normal non-strenuous activities within one to two weeks. We will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions that you must adhere to, such as refraining from strenuous exercise and other physical activities, including physical exercise and sex, for a period of four to six weeks, depending on your specific procedure and how quickly you heal. Our friendly and compassionate staff will answer all of your questions and support you through your recovery period.
How Much Does A Mommy Makeover Cost in Worcester?
The mommy makeover is highly personalized and will incur different costs for each patient. Since it is considered an elective procedure, most health insurance carriers will not cover it; however, our office offers a variety of financing and payment options for your convenience.
