Mommy Makeover in Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ
Are you a healthy woman in the Phoenix or Scottsdale area looking for a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover may be just what you need. An increasing number of women are looking to undergo surgery to get their youthful, pre-pregnancy body back. On average, most women gain 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy. This added weight is stored as fatty tissue in the breasts, abdomen, flanks (love-handles), hips, lower back, buttocks, and thighs. The breasts also enlarge due to weight gain and to prepare for nursing. As the baby grows, so does the abdomen. This may result in a weakening and separation of the abdominal muscles, and stretching of the abdominal skin. This stretching may cause a breakage of the skin collagen, also known as stretch marks. These changes often become even more apparent after childbirth and nursing.
A Mommy Makeover includes multiple procedures designed to reverse and aesthetically enhance the areas directly affected by pregnancy. The series of procedures is known as the “postpartum plastic surgery trifecta.” These include a tummy tuck, breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction of the legs. Many women also opt to undergo a buttock lift and/or labiaplasty at the same time to avoid another surgery later. The beauty of the Mommy Makeover, is that you can include any or all of these body contouring procedures depending on your personal preference.
