Getting Back in Shape with a Mommy Makeover

Getting Back in Shape with a Mommy Makeover

Few experiences in life are any better than being a Mom, but pregnancy can take a big toll on your body. Your breasts may become much larger and lose shape or they deflate and look empty after the hormonal changes. Your abdominal muscles are pushed apart and the skin stretches until the elastic fibers can expand no more and leave stretch marks. You sacrifice a lot to provide the best for your family, but sometimes your own well being is lost in the process. A “Mommy Makeover” is intended to roll back some of the wear and tear signs of childbearing. Some might worry that it is too self-focused to deal with one’s own body issues while balancing family responsibilities, but feeling at your best is a good way to enhance your interactions with loved ones.

The right procedure for undoing pregnancy’s effects should be individualized.  It might include a breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction or other choices that restore your figure. To find out the best plan for yourself schedule a consultation with Dr. Peters to thoroughly discuss the options.
