The Mommy Makeover in Sacramento California

Posted by Dr. Perry in Mommy Makeover

Women, especially mothers have the right to look as good as they feel. After child bearing, many women experience sagging breasts and abdomens as a natural consequence of carrying a child and nursing. The abdomen and breast grow to accommodate these exciting roles. For many the extra abdominal and breast skin that grows and the stretch marks are worn as badges of honor, however for some these changes are unwanted. The excess and often undesirable skin, loosened abdominal muscles and sagging breasts can change or limit clothing choices for some or even hinder certain activities for others. More and more women across the country are turning to Board Certified Plastic Surgeons such as Dr Charles Perry and Chrysalis Cosmetics located in Sacramento California for Mommy Makeovers. The Mommy Makeover is a cute term coined by the media for a combined abdominoplasty or tummy tuck with a breast enhancement procedure. These two procedures act synergistically to enhance the contour of the female body by making the waist smaller and the breasts perkier. Two areas most affected by bearing children.

Other procedures can be included in a Mommy Makeover as well such as liposuction to enhance the hips, back, chest and thighs or lip augmentation or even blepharoplasty and brow lifts.

While abdominoplasty and breast augmentation are often all that some women require following child bearing, others may want to enhance their smile or eyes as well. The surges of estrogen and progesterone that allow the abdomen and uterus to expand and thin enough to hold the child also affect other areas of the body including the face, eyes, and brows. Certainly the breasts and abdominal wall changes are more dramatic however the thinning and loosening of the skin of the face can lead to a tired look as well. In an effort to address all of the changes and develop a comprehensive age management plan following child bearing Chrysalis Cosmetics will address other affected areas at your consultation if you’d like.

Mommy Makeovers may involve skin care regiments to improve and enhance the appearance as well as fillers that can lift and shape the eyes and lips – two areas often affected by pregnancy and late night feedings. Laser skin enhancements can help bring back the skin tone and tighten the areas around the eyes and cheeks as well and work well as an adjunct to the prescription line skin care products. It is amazing to see how good people feel when they look their best.
