Mommy Makeover Baltimore: Plastic Surgery Center Of Maryland

Mommy Makeover Surgery

Becoming a mother is one of the absolute greatest moments of many women’s lives. The process of carrying a child and creating a life is an accomplishment worth admiration and certainly cause for celebration. However, after delivery, many mothers contend with an unanticipated (or at least unwanted) side effect. The female body was created to support childbirth, yes, but that doesn’t stop the damage and stress caused by the process.

Sagging, loose skin, and the presence of unsightly marks are common to post-delivery mothers. And while some women’s bodies respond quickly to diet and exercise, the number of mothers that manage a full-body recovery on that alone is very small. And even these women are often plagued with excess skin and a sag in the breast. For mothers looking to regain the confidence and appearance they enjoyed before carrying, our clinic suggests a “Mommy Makeover”.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A “Mommy Makeover” refers to any combination of procedures that aim to restore the figure and youthful appearance of a post-delivery mother. They serve to address all of the common issues that arise as a result of pregnancy and delivery, as well as breastfeeding.

Makeovers aimed specifically at mothers have gained rapidly in popularity over recent years, as more and more men and women become comfortable with the idea of plastic surgery as a solution to body issues and problems that do not respond well to regular diet and exercise.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

If you are in good health overall, near your ideal body weight, and a nonsmoker, you are likely a candidate for a mommy makeover. Patients are generally advised until they no longer wish to have children before having a mommy makeover. In addition, you should be at least six months postpartum before having the surgery.

Our Mommy Makeovers can include (and aren’t limited to) the following procedures:

  • Breast enhancementAn augmentation or lift is the perfect response to the sag and loss of size and shape common with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Many women lose confidence and are unhappy with their breasts after delivery. Breast augmentation can help regain previous size (or more, if the patient desires), and a breast lift can address the stretching, sagging and misshapen appearance a woman may experience post-pregnancy.
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). A tummy tuck serves to address the excess skin, sagging and discomfort common to the changes to the body brought on by childbearing.
  • LiposuctionOne of the largest concerns we encounter is women that cannot rid themselves of excess fat after a pregnancy. Many bodies simply will not respond well to exercise and diet, and stubbornly hold on to pregnancy weight. Liposuction is an exceptional solution to this, aiding you in regaining your previous weight and allowing you to maintain it in the future.
  • Skin tightening or lower body lift. During pregnancy, your skin around your lower abdomen and hips stretches significantly to accommodate a growing child. It can be hard for the skin in older mothers to snap back into place, and skin tightening or a lower body lift can correct this.
