A Mommy Makeover for Mother’s Day

A Mommy Makeover for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and many spouses and children are struggling to find the perfect gift to show their love and appreciation for the woman who puts their needs before hers and gives so much. Rather than getting her yet another set of lotions and perfumes, why not give Mom the gift of a Mommy Makeover this year?

Increasing numbers of women are undergoing the Mommy Makeover procedure to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. Pregnancy can have some unfavorable effects on a woman’s body, such as sagging or deflated breasts, a protruding abdomen, and excess fat deposits that are difficult to eliminate with just diet and exercise. A Mommy Makeover combines some or all of the following procedures into one surgery to give Mom her body and confidence back:

Tummy Tuck

For most women, the abdomen is the area of the body most affected by pregnancy and the most difficult area to improve even after a healthy weight is achieved. Stretched abdominal muscles, excess fat, and loose skin can all contribute to a bulging midsection. Tummy tuck surgery corrects all of these conditions by tightening the abdominal muscles, eliminating unwanted fat, and removing excess skin to produce a smooth and toned tummy.

Liposuction

Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of the body to remove stubborn fat deposits and sculpt the body to produce more attractive contours. This relatively quick procedure uses small incisions to suction out unwanted fat, and the results are long lasting. Dr. Chiu offers a variety of liposuction techniques to meet a wide range of patient needs.

Breast Augmentation

This extremely rewarding procedure improves the size and shape of the breasts using either saline or silicone implants. Silicone, cohesive gel, or “Gummy Bear” implants can be either round or anatomically shaped to suit the desired aesthetics of the patient. Incisions for breast augmentation can be made around the nipples (periareolar), along the breast crease (inframammary), or within the underarm (transaxillary). Dr. Chiu performs breast augmentation to achieve his patients’ desired breast volume and projection, especially for mothers who have experienced volume loss after pregnancy and breastfeeding. During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will discuss the pros and cons of each option and recommend the best techniques to achieve your desired results.

Breast Lift

For mothers who have sagging breasts with excess skin, breast lift surgery can restore perky, lifted breasts. Loose breast skin is removed, and the nipples can also be moved to a higher position on the breasts if necessary. A variety of incision techniques are available (crescent, donut, lollipop, or anchor) so that the procedure can be customized to correct each patient’s specific degree of sagging. Breast lift surgery is often combined with breast augmentation to achieve fuller, more youthful breasts.
