More about Mommy Makeovers
When a Mommy Makeover Is Right
Pregnancy and childbirth can bring a lot of changes to your body. During the pregnancy itself, the muscles of the abdomen are stretched out and weakened. With age and passing time, those muscles may sag and cause a flabby look in the midsection. Additionally, nursing your baby can bring a lot of changes to your breast tissue, leaving breasts looking deflated or just sitting lower than you might like. For women who feel unhappy with the changes which have taken place in their body following pregnancy, a mommy makeover is designed to help.
What to Expect
Every mommy makeover is tailored to the individual, so no two procedures will be exactly alike. However, there are several procedures that are commonly included as part of a mommy Makeover for Tampa moms:
A tummy tuck will tighten stretched out abdominal muscles, and also removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. This helps moms regain their young, trim waistline. An incision will be made across the lower abdomen, through which Dr. Castellano is able to restore tautness to the abdominal muscles. Once the framework is back in place to offer proper support, any excess skin and fat are removed and the incision is closed.
For stubborn fat deposits elsewhere on the body, liposuction can further sculpt problem areas and create a more slender silhouette. Lipo is not a substitute for weight loss, although it can be used to remove excess fat in areas which have remained unaffected by diet or exercise.
A breast lift restores breasts to a more youthful placement and restores perkiness. Dr. Castellano is able to re-sculpt the breast tissue and adjust nipple placement in order to bring the breasts more front and center.
Breast augmentation increases the fullness of the natural breast. Whether you are interested in a little boost or more dramatic results, Dr. Castellano has the skills and expertise to give you the figure you’ve always wanted.
Not every mom will want or need all of these treatments, although it’s very common to schedule multiple procedures during a mommy makeover.
Recovery and Results
Recovery time will vary depending on the procedures which Dr. Castellano performs, according to your desired results. All surgical procedures will provide a fresh new look for years to come.
With Other Procedures
In addition to the surgical options listed above, there are several non-surgical enhancements which complement the mommy makeover. For example, laser resurfacing improves skin texture and can remove sun damage which contributes to premature aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to slow down the advancement of certain facial wrinkles. Other fillers are able to minimize deeper lines, or plump up lips for an extra boost.
