Lancaster Mommy Makeover
Reading Post-Pregnancy Body Contouring
For many women, becoming a mother is a fulfilling experience. Your body has been through a profound event, and even though you are happy to have brought your child into the world, you may now feel uncomfortable with the shape and tone of your breasts, tummy, and hips. For women in Reading, Lancaster, and surrounding cities, mommy makeover surgery from Berks Plastic Surgery can help you restore your body after childbirth and breastfeeding so that you once again feel comfortable and confident in your figure.
The best candidates for Mommy Makeover surgery may experience the following:
- You feel uncomfortable with your body after you have discontinued breast feeding
- Your breast size has decreased or your breasts have lost their firmness or volume
- You have excess skin and fat, particularly on the abdomen
- You do not plan on having additional children
Whether you’re a new mom or have had several pregnancies, our surgeons can help you understand your options. Mommy makeover procedures vary depending on what you would like to improve, but it will be important to create a custom plan and make arrangements for recovery.
A breast lift is one of the main components of the surgical plan. By removing excess skin and repositioning the breasts, you can restore the youthful look of your chest. Many women also choose to have breast implant surgery to restore the firmness and size of their breasts. You and your surgeon can discuss your goals and come up with a plan that provides the best results.
Tummy tuck surgery helps to repair the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin. Through artful incisions to reduce visible scarring, we can access the area to target key muscle groups for repair and then remove excess skin once complete. During this time we can also perform liposuction to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. A butt lift or thigh lift can also restore the youthfulness to your figure.
Dr. Reedy and Dr. Fernandez perform all procedures while the patient is under general anesthesia, administered by a board certified MD anesthesiologist. In most cases, post-operative support bandages will be used to ensure optimal results.
Recovery times vary depending on the types of procedures you choose to include in your mommy makeover. Whether you choose to have one or several of these procedures, it will be helpful to arrange for someone to stay with you for the first 24 hours. Within one to two weeks you will be able to get back to your normal routine but you should limit lifting, running or jogging, and other intense activity for at least six weeks.
