Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can be some of the most amazing and life-changing experiences for women. Along with the incredible strength and pride you should feel after these milestones, it’s also natural to be disappointed in the physical appearance of your body afterwards. Having a child means that you will undergo extensive changes, and commonly women do not rebound to their pre-pregnancy bodies in the way that they hoped. For these women, a mommy makeover can be an invaluable solution. A mommy makeover is not a single procedure, but is a set of procedures customized just for you and your personal needs and goals.
Understanding a Plus Sized Mommy Makeover
While some surgeons only offer mommy makeovers to small sized patients, Dr. Basu is a firm believer that anyone – regardless of their size – may be a good candidate for these customized procedures. As a pioneer in plus size mommy makeovers, Dr. Basu emphasizes that these operations are never about “the perfect body”. Instead, they aim to enhance your natural beauty and uniqueness, and improve the areas you choose.
Not only do plus size mommy makeover patients see substantial improvements in their post-pregnancy bodies, but they also tell us that they have more energy, more confidence, and more motivated to fully participate in the lives of their kids.
Plus Size Mommy Makeover: Lifted, Firmer Breasts
While plus size mommy makeovers are customized for each patient, one common request is for a breast reduction, breast lift, or both procedures. During pregnancy and/or breast feeding, the size of your breasts can increase substantially over a short period of time. Some women find that they then lose weight, which often results in sagging “deflated” looking breasts. Other women note that their breasts never seem to return to a smaller pre-pregnancy size. In either case, Dr. Basu’s breast reduction can give you smaller, lighter breasts, which often reduces back pain and increases comfort during activity. In addition, his breast lift can give you a more lifted, perky silhouette.
Plus Size Mommy Makeover: Smoother, Slimmer Tummy
Another key component to the mommy makeover is enhancements to the tummy area. Women gain weight quickly during pregnancy, so it is very common to have loose, hanging skin in the abdominal area. It is also very normal to have excess fat that may be hard to target with diet and exercise. There are two primary procedures that can be used to improve the contours of your tummy area in a plus size mommy makeover. The first is liposuction, which is best for targeting stubborn pockets of fat. The second is a tummy tuck which removes loose skin and provides a tighter, more toned tummy area. Depending on your body shape and goals, you may be a candidate for one or both of these procedures. Dr. Basu will give you an honest assessment of what he knows will most benefit you, when you come in for a consultation.
Plus Size Mommy Makeover: Other Enhancements
While the breasts and tummy area are the most common requests for improvements with a plus size mommy makeover, these are not your only options. Remember that a mommy makeover is a truly customizable set of procedures that is designed to give you back your pre-pregnancy body. Other options that our patients sometimes choose to include in their mommy makeover are surgical arm lifts, or non-surgical solutions like our double chin treatment or vaginal rejuvenation.
