Because You Deserve It
There is nothing more life changing for a woman than becoming a mother. Unfortunately, the effects of pregnancy and breast-feeding may significantly alter the appearance of your body. For our patients in San Antonio, mommy makeover procedures are available at Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A. At our San Antonio plastic surgery practice, we take pride in giving patients more confidence in the way they look. Dr. Sheryl Pilcher can recommend the appropriate set of procedures to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Contrary to what many infer right away, the mommy makeover is not just for the relatively new mother. Women who had their kids years ago may be ideal candidates too. Whether you are a new mom or have been meaning to get back your figure for quite some time, the mommy makeover may be right for you. In general, mommy makeover candidates should be in good overall health, not smoke, and be close to her ideal weight.
Mommy makeovers are customized to address the unique needs of the individual patient. The comprehensive treatment plan usually consists of one or more of the options below:
Breast Augmentation: After giving birth, many women experience a loss of volume in their breasts. For our patients in San Antonio, breast augmentation can be performed to enhance the size of the breasts and restore their fullness. At Accent Plastic Surgery, we use saline and silicone breast implants to create larger and shapelier breasts.
Breast Lift: After giving birth, many women experience sagging or drooping of their breasts. The surgical breast lift calls for the removal of excess skin and repositioning of the nipple to restore the breasts and make them look more youthful.
Breast Reduction: While a number of women experience a loss of volume, or deflation, of the breasts after pregnancy, the size of the breasts does not decrease for some women. Some patients may be interested in undergoing breast reduction surgery to bring more balanced proportion to the figure. During treatment, excess fat and skin is removed from the breasts; the nipple is also repositioned, and in some cases, the areola is made smaller.
Tummy Tuck: We all know pregnancy stretches out the belly! During a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, Dr. Pilcher will remove excess skin in the abdominal area, tightening the abdominal muscles as well. The remaining skin is then re-draped to produce a smooth, slim appearance. In certain patients, Dr. Pilcher will alter or re-create the belly button to achieve an improved aesthetic. The tummy tuck leaves the patient with a flattened, more contoured looking tummy.
Liposuction: This procedure serves to complement the mommy makeover by removing stubborn fat deposits that may have accumulated around the stomach, hips, thighs, arms, back, and face.
