Since having a baby, how many times have you looked at yourself in the mirror and just wished you could change things back to the way they used to be? Or to just improve one or two physical features so that you felt “good enough” to get back into that favorite pair or jeans or swimsuit?
Whether it’s getting a flatter stomach (and erasing some of that “baby belly”) or lifting your sagging breasts after nursing for months on end, you’re not alone. A lot of women come to my El Paso office just wanting to feel more confident in their bodies again after having children.
Not a One-Size-Fits-Most Treatment
Mommy Makeovers aren’t a one-size-fits-all procedure. Each one is a custom “package” that I put together to help women like you get what they need out of a customized cosmetic procedure. Whether it’s getting their hourglass figure back or erasing loose skin, we address it all.
Ultimately, we’re trying to help women feel better with their bodies after having children. That means addressing the way fat is distributed through their bodies, the contours that change in their abdomen and breasts, and stretching skin.
We’ll usually start at the top and work our way down, recreating that hourglass figure. With the breasts, some lifting or augmentation may be needed. Around the abdomen, I might recommend liposuction or a tummy tuck. Once we get to the hips and buttocks, many women enjoy a Brazilian Butt Lift – which can give you great curves and the round bottom that women spend months in a gym working toward.
During a Brazilian Butt Lift, I’m actually transferring fat from one portion of the body to another. We can do the same thing to increase a woman’s bust size if they do not want to undergo breast implant surgery! It’s an increasingly common procedure and there are no unwanted side effects.
The important part is that your Mommy Makeover addresses your primary concerns and is tailored to meet your expectations. I won’t recommend the same procedure on each woman, because everyone’s bodies are designed differently. That’s why it’s so important to find a skilled plastic surgeon who has experience with a wide variety of techniques, whether surgically or non-invasive.
Choosing the Right Doctor is Vital
Choosing the right plastic surgeon not only increases the success of your treatment, but also impacts your recovery time. In most cases, my patients need about 2 or 3 weeks to get back to normal after a full Mommy Makeover. In the meantime, it’s important to have help around the house when it comes to lifting or doing extensive housework. After that, it’s back to business as usual!
If you’re considering getting a Mommy Makeover, I highly advise you to set up a private consultation with me here at my El Paso facility. Be sure to bring photos of your ideal “look,” even if they’re from a magazine or pictures of you before you had children. Visuals are ideal when I’m working with women on designing the finished product. I’ll be happy to discuss what options are available to help you feel and look your best!
