Ready for Your Mommy Makeover?

Being a mom is hard. When you were pregnant with your first child, you probably knew that you were signing up for a lot of sleepless nights, tantrums, and all of the sweat, blood, and tears that go along with raising a child.  Yet, like so many, you were willing to deal with all that in order to experience the indescribable joy of being a mom.

Unfortunately, you may not have realized that being a mom may mean saying goodbye to your pre-mom body. Again, the sacrifice to your breasts and abdomen is worth it to have a child, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be satisfied with your post baby body once you’re done having kids.

Over the last decade, many women have chosen to get their pre-mom body back by having what’s known as a "mommy makeover." In most cases, a mommy makeover includes 2 to 3 plastic surgeries done at the same time to give you back the supple breasts and tight stomach that you had before having children.

The fact is, bearing children wreaks havoc on your breasts and stomach. Breastfeeding can actually cause your breasts to lose some of their tissue after the initial swell you get from lactating. As a result, breasts are left saggy and smaller than they were before you had children. Likewise, your stomach is also often left a bit droopy after having a baby. Even if you lose all of your baby weight plus some, you might still be left with loose skin, stretch marks, and perhaps a C-section scar. Fat deposits can also be left on your hips, stomach, and thighs after having kids, and these deposits are usually extremely hard to erase with diet and exercise alone.

If you feel overwhelmed, relax, as these are all problems that can be fixed with plastic surgery.

Mommy makeover surgery can include liposuction, a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and/or a breast lift. Your plastic surgeon can work with you to help determine which cosmetic surgery procedures might be best for your specific body. Through a combination of surgeries performed during the same appointment, usually within a matter of 3 to 4 hours, you can undo all of the cosmetic damage done to your body by having kids.

In other words, with mommy makeover surgery, you really can have it all — beautiful babies and a beautiful body.

Shaped and Textured Implants are Next Generation for Breast Enhancement

WSVN.com recently posted a story about “Aimee,” a woman in South Florida who just had breast augmentation surgery with shaped silicone gel implants.

Dr. Blane Shatkin appears on the segment to discuss the new implants, which feature a natural teardrop shape and cohesive silicone gel. “You don’t want to put them in upside down or sideways” he says and “you don’t want them to move in the implant pocket.”

Shaped implants are textured to help prevent rotation. When used in breast augmentation, the implants provide less implant height and greater projection, the doctor explains.

Aimee was pleased with the natural results of her breast augmentation. “It gave me a little more fullness on top,” she said. Her new bathing suit fits perfect, reports WSVN News.

Shaped Silicone Gel Breast Implants by Sientra

sientra2Sientra is the latest breast implant maker to enter the American market, next to Allergan and Mentor. Their shaped implant features a “natural sloped profile and inferior pole projection.” A variety of widths, heights and projections provide surgeons with more opportunities to create a customized result.

The Sientra shaped implant comes in 3 base shapes: round, oval and classic. The high-strength silicone gel is cohesive, so it cannot leak like saline implants or previous silicone implants. While they are designed to maintain their shape, they still offer the soft feel that women want from a silicone implant. Sizes range from 170 cc all the way up to 700 cc in volume.
