Mommy Makeover – Breast Procedures
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to restore a woman’s body to a more youthful and firm state following pregnancy. Giving birth can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a woman’s life, but pregnancy and breast feeding can cause changes in a woman’s body to occur. The most common complaint following pregnancy is loose and sagging skin forming in multiple areas of the body. Given the stress on the female body, the skin can often be stretched beyond the point of natural repair. The skin can lose its natural skin elasticity causing the body to appear droopy or loose. Dr. Michele Koo uses a number of procedures to correct these areas and restore the body to a pre-pregnancy state.
Since each woman’s body reacts differently to pregnancy, a mommy makeover is a highly individualized procedure that involves special attention to the individual circumstances of each patient. Dr. Koo meets with each patient individually to determine a personalized procedure plan to achieve the desired results.
Mommy Makeover Breast Lift
Pregnancy can cause breasts to lose volume over time and become uneven. Nipples can begin to droop and areolas can stretch. A breast lift restores breasts to a more natural and youthful position on the chest.
A mommy makeover breast lift removes excess skin to restore the skin’s natural elasticity and tightens supporting tissues to achieve the desired contour. A breast lift does not directly impact the overall volume of the breast so many patients elect to combine this procedure with a breast augmentation or breast reduction to correct the volume of the breast. A mommy makeover breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola and reposition the nipples to a more youthful position.
Mommy Makeover Breast Augmentation
Due to the volume loss caused by pregnancy and breast-feeding, many women elect to supplement the size of their breasts with breast implants. Smaller, empty looking breasts can often significantly affect a woman’s self-confidence and self-esteem. A mommy makeover breast augmentation can help to increase the breast size and restore a woman’s self-confidence.
As breast augmentation has grown in popularity, a number of advanced techniques have become available to new mothers. Dr. Michele Koo can help determine which options will best deliver the desired results. To achieve the most firm and youthful breasts, women often elect to combine this procedure with a mommy makeover breast lift.
Mommy Makeover Breast Reduction
During pregnancy, many women see an increase in the overall volume of their breasts. While many women see a dramatic decrease in breast size following child-birth, other women see the breast size stay relatively large. In these cases, women elect to undergo the mommy makeover breast reduction.
Breast reduction can relieve the common symptoms of large breasts, such as pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, skeletal deformities and low self-esteem. A mommy makeover breast reduction removes fat and glandular tissue to reduce the overall volume of the breast.
Since large, pendulous breasts can often stretch the skin of the breast causing them to sag, many women choose to combine a mommy makeover breast reduction with a mommy makeover breast lift to achieve the desired results. Combined, these procedures delivers firm breasts in a more youthful position on the chest, alleviating any emotional or physical discomfort caused by overly large breasts.
