After childbirth, the female body can look significantly different than it did before the pregnancy process began. The body has been put through a massive amount of stress by growing to a larger size, and then going through the process of childbirth. Because giving birth can alter the way women’s bodies may look for the rest of their lives, surgeons came up with a method to treating multiple areas affected by a pregnancy. This method is colloquially known as the mommy makeover. As its name suggests, the treatments are aimed at helping women who have recently given birth. The procedures target the breasts and tummy areas with a variety of different options. If you are looking for the best mommy makeover in Beverly Hills, call Dr. Brent’s office today to schedule your first consultation!
What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Following childbirth, moms are significantly more stressed than ever. The lack of sleep, your work schedule, breastfeeding, nutrition deprivation and an unfamiliar new body shape can all really add up and take a toll on your mental and physical health. When all your emotions begin to overwhelm you, this is called postpartum depression. There are a few ways to combat postpartum, but one of the most popular is getting a mommy makeover! This procedure is incredibly popular because women can regain their bodies and their self-confidence. What’s more is the results are completed in just one surgery. A resurgence in your self-confidence can work wonders for these emotional symptoms, and Dr. Brent is committed to making sure you can get back to the body you love.
During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Brent will discuss your body goals and what treatments you would like to achieve those goals. You have the option of a breast augmentation, lift, and reduction procedure for your mommy makeover, and if you are interested in getting a lift along with a reduction or augmentation, you and the doctor can talk it over to see if you are a good candidate for both treatments during the operation. You can also decide to get a tummy tuck and liposuction during your mommy makeover. Patients often choose to do a tummy tuck to remove any excess skin that has resulted from the aftermath of childbirth. Because your abdominal area has gone through a physically traumatic experience, the skin that used to cover a large area can remain even after your stomach has thinned out. Patients find that no amount of exercise or dieting can remove this excess area of skin, so we encourage a tummy tuck to treat that layer.
Book your first consultation for a mommy makeover in Beverly Hills with Dr. Brent for that fantastic boost of confidence you’ve been searching for.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Optimal candidates for a mommy makeover procedure include women who have recently given birth and do not plan to continue having more children, women of average weight who are on a healthy weight loss journey, patients who have been struggling to lose stubborn fat, and women who have some flexibility in their schedules to take significant recovery time. Patients who are interested in any breast procedures should be done nursing before receiving treatment in this area, as the procedure will completely affect the process. Our mommy makeover is the most popular treatment for new moms because of the self-confidence we can help them gain back. Childbirth is a beautiful miracle, but it takes a detrimental toll on the female body to perform. New moms are also significantly prone to postpartum depression following the birth, and a negative body confidence can only make this depression worse. That’s why Dr. Brent is committed to offering the most popular mommy makeover in Beverly Hills. If you think you would benefit from this treatment, call our office today to set up your first consultation!
