There are few things in life more beautiful than a mother giving birth to a child. Mothers are selfless as they give their bodies to nature and keep their child safe throughout their nine month growth period. The need to nurture, care for and love your child is a response triggered by neurotransmitters that go off during pregnancy. After childbirth, however, a woman's body goes through significant physical changes that are sometimes irreversible. Should women chalk this up to being a 'mother' and leave their sagging breasts, larger thighs, and heavier abdomen alone? Or, is a "Mommy Makeover" just what the doctor ordered? We believe all Mothers should feel just as good with their bodies post pregnancy as they did on their wedding day. Here are certain procedures new moms may want to consider before scheduling their appointment with Dr. Lloyd D. Landsman in Smithtown, NY.
Rejuvenate Your Breasts
Breasts seem to lose their volume and firmness after giving birth. An implant may be needed to restore volume & firmness. A mastopexy, otherwise known as a breast lift, may be necessary to perform at the same time as the breast augmentation to get the breasts looking perky again. Worried about the recovery time for a procedure like this? Go into the procedure in pretty good shape and the recovery time could be just a few weeks.
Muffin Top & Hips That Don't Lie?
Liposuction is a safe and precise procedure to get rid of unwanted belly fat that develops during pregnancy. If you are a yo yo dieter who gains and loses weight, and have developed sagging skin from this, you may want to also consider a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty which will leave you with a very firm stomach. Recovery time? Fairly quick if you follow pre and post operative instructions carefully. You may resume light exercise after 3-4 weeks if all goes well.
