Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeovers in Cleveland, Ohio Counter the Physical Effects of Pregnancy

by Dr. Daniel Medalie

On average, most women gain 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy. This weight is stored as fatty tissue in the breasts, abdomen, flanks (love-handles), hips, lower back, buttocks and thighs. The breasts also grow due to weight gain and to prepare for nursing. But don't despair, a mommy makeover can help you look your best again.

As the baby grows, so does the abdomen. This may result in a weakening and separation of the abdominal muscles, and stretching of the abdominal skin. This stretching may cause a breakage of the skin collagen, also known as stretch marks. These unsightly marks are purple-red in color and concentrated around the belly button and lower abdomen.

These effects often become even more apparent after childbirth and nursing. A mommy makeover can help reverse these effects.

Many new moms do lose the excess weight – eventually. Unfortunately, the weight loss is not proportional to the amount of fatty tissue in a given area. That means for some, more weight may be lost from the breasts or buttocks than the abdomen and waist.

The result? Smaller breasts despite fullness of the waist and abdomen. In these cases, a mommy makeover may be in order.

Once a woman finishes breastfeeding, the breasts deflate even further and begin to sag. The weak abdominal muscles and the excess abdominal fat appear as fullness and bulging of the belly. Many new moms may still look pregnant even as their child is taking his or her first steps. Once again, a mommy makeover can help.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is performed using a unique combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to counteract the physical effects of childbearing, and restore and enhance your body.

In general, a mommy makeover may include:

Mommy makeovers can include any or all of these body contouring procedures depending on your wishes and needs.

For example, some women need breast augmentation to correct severely deflated “pancake” breasts, while others may need breast implants in combination with a breast lift. Still, some women may actually desire a breast reduction with a lift.

In the abdominal area, many women need a full abdominoplasty with tightening of the muscle layer as well as removal of the excess skin and fat, while some may need a mini-abdominoplasty

Some women may also benefit from liposuction to sculpt the back, hips and thighs; and smooth out their contours.
