Skin Conditions Treated
Naturally, pregnancy is such a beautiful time for a woman. Bringing your precious bundle of life and joy into the world is one of the most life-changing experiences. At the same time, the physical toll it takes on her body is especially taxing. While some are able to bounce back to their pre-pregnancy look, others are left with changes that cannot be reversed through diet and exercise. Otherwise confident about themselves and the way they look before having kids, some women feel embarrassed and self-conscious afterwards. Pregnancy's effects, stretch marks, fat deposits, and a weakening of the abdominal wall, can adversely affect the self-image of some women.
At Southern Surgical Arts, The Mommy Makeover is a combination of several procedures designed to restore the look of a woman's body to what she had before pregnancy. The procedures commonly combined include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation with lift (if necessary) and SmartLipo-laser body sculpting. The first and simplest way to address loose skin after pregnancy is through a tummy tuck. In addition to removing the skin and stretch marks during the abdominoplasty, the surgeon may tighten, if necessary, the abdominal muscles if they have been weakened by your pregnancy. Using FDA-approved implants, a breast augmentation restores fullness and perkiness to your breasts. Another increasingly requested procedure among moms today is the labiaplasty, for moms who have stretched, enlarged, or asymmetrical labia due to childbirth. Consult with our physicians to see if this procedure is right for you.
Who is a Good Candidate?
