Combine A Tummy Tuck with These Procedures to Restore Your Pre-Pregnancy Shape
Pregnancy is a joyous time for most women as they prepare to meet their little ones and shower them with love. Some women find it difficult to love their bodies after childbirth and may struggle with their breasts and figure long after the postpartum months. These changes often include loose skin, stubborn fat, and deflated or drooping breasts.
Tummy tuck with Dr. Joshua Greenwald can provide a flatter, tighter stomach, and many women choose to combine their abdominoplasty with other procedures to reach their cosmetic goals with a single surgery and one-time recovery. Combining these plastic surgeries is called a “mommy makeover.”
Breast Surgery with Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck can be combined with a breast procedure to elevate, enhance, or reduce breast tissues while removing loose skin from the abdomen. Breast augmentation with breast implants can restore fullness in the upper portion of the breast that often appears deflated or “empty” after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast lift repositions the tissues and nipple-areolar complex higher on the chest wall for a more youthful-appearing bust after hormone changes, gravity, and aging have caused drooping (ptosis).
Some women experience significant breast growth during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and their breasts may not decrease when they wean. Breast reduction can remove the excess breast tissue to alleviate painful symptoms, such as chronic back pain, and create a more symmetrical breast and body shape.
Liposuction with Tummy Tuck
Liposuction complements the tummy tuck procedure by removing residual pockets of fat from the abdomen, back, arms, thighs, or other areas. Dr. Greenwald offers Tummy Tuck 360 which combines tummy tuck with liposuction of the abdomen, hips, flanks (love handles), and back to transform your entire midsection.
Tummy Tuck with Lower Body Lift
The abdomen is not the only body area that changes during pregnancy. While the stomach region does most of the stretching to accommodate a growing fetus, the thighs, buttocks, hips, and back may also expand. When a woman loses the “baby weight,” she may have loose skin in multiple parts of her lower body. Tummy tuck combined with lower body lift removes excess skin and fatty tissues and tightens the abdomen, back, thighs, hips, and buttocks to reveal your pre-baby body shape.
Tummy tuck can be combined with several other procedures for mommy makeover surgery. The most popular choices include breast surgery and liposuction, but your mommy makeover details depend on your problem areas and cosmetic goals.
