Motherhood can be an unparalleled experience from the excitement of telling friends and family about starting your family to dropping your “baby” off for the first day of school. Motherhood . . . Heaven on earth? Yes! Hard on your body? Oh YES!
It’s hard enough to lose the baby weight, combat stretch marks, tone your tummy and stand up straight again – but knowing that you may never return to your pre-baby body? Wait…what? You work out, diet, use vitamin E and still the stretch and strain of your adorable bundle of joy left you with a body you no longer recognize.
You love your baby and your family. Maybe it’s time to love yourself again. Many mommies are taking back control, and empowering themselves to feel free again in their own bodies. Restoring the beauty and tone of a pre-baby body with a group of aesthetic procedures known as a “Mommy Makeover” can help you celebrate your post baby body in your own fearless way. Don’t sit on the sidelines because of the anxiety you feel about areas that you want to conceal from the world!
While “Mommy Makeover” is a common term, you may not realize that it’s a highly individualized combination of procedures, addressing personal needs and aesthetic goals. Each woman will choose what, how and when she wants to address pregnancy-related changes. You are in the driver’s seat and define the look and feel you want from your body. Dr. Castellon has had years of experience creating remarkable results for women who visit us with a variety of personalized goals.
While your “Mommy Make-over” will be individualized to your meet your goals, most address breasts, tummy, bottom and thighs.
• Breasts Weight gain and breast milk can cause the breasts to grow significantly during pregnancy leaving post-pregnancy breast tissue stretched or drooping. A breast lift can remove excess skin and tissue restoring breasts to their natural position while maintaining breast size. Lots of mommies choose to increase the size of their breasts and pair a breast lift with breast implants.
• Tummy Even women who lose their baby weight frequently experience some sagging or lack of muscle tightness in the abdomen. A tummy tuck procedure can remove excess skin and tighten stomach muscles restoring a smooth, flat tummy. For mommies struggling with baby weight, liposuction can be paired with the tummy tuck.
• Bottom and Thighs Physical changes from pregnancy don’t always stop at the waist. A lower body lift can restore your legs and buttocks to their pre-baby state; like a tummy tuck, lower body lifts can be paired with liposuction.
Women often ask if they should wait until they’ve completed their family before considering a “Mommy Makeover”. That is a very personal decision that is best made in consultation with Dr. Castellon. He will talk through your aesthetic goals and recovery needs to find the combination of procedures and timing to fit your life.
