Making Breast Augmentation Part of Your Mommy Makeover

For many moms in Tampa, breast augmentation is one of the primary procedures included with a Mommy Makeover. Augmentation, along with other procedures, can be combined to return your body back to its former pre-pregnancy appearance.

 

Pregnancy Changes

Pregnancy causes many changes in the body, both during and after the pregnancy itself. During pregnancy, breasts often become swollen and enlarged. The abdomen muscles stretch to accommodate the baby growing within. And, weight gain is also very common during pregnancy. Following the birth of the child, the body may return to normal, but more often there is lingering evidence of the pregnancy. Breasts may lose volume or fall in placement, even more likely if the new mom is nursing her little one. Extra weight may not dissipate as rapidly as you would like. And abdominal muscles stretched out during pregnancy may not quite regain their former tautness.

 

Mommy Makeovers Can Help

A mommy makeover is designed to address these physical issues to help new moms feel better about their bodies after the birth of their child. At my practice in Tampa, breast augmentation is often one of the first steps in renewing a youthful self-confidence for these women. Breasts that have lost their natural volume and fullness as a result of pregnancy or nursing can be restored through the use of implants. These may be combined with a breast lift for even more dramatic results.

 

In addition to augmentation, liposuction can be used to remove stubborn fat deposits from upper arms, thighs or abdomen, while lax abdominal muscles can be tightened back up with a tummy tuck.

 

By combining procedures in an individualized treatment plan, every woman can realize her full beauty potential after her childbearing years.
