Mommy Make-Overs

Posted by drbg on July 3, 2007

Pregnancy creates a lot of changes in a woman’s body. Most often there is stretching and relaxation of the abdomen and breasts. The breasts experience a loss of volume as well as tone and there may be some residual fat collections in the hip and waist area. I see a lot of women who request a “Mommy Make-Over” to reverse these changes. During the consultation I let patients express all of their concerns, and it is generally safe to treat everything at once. Most often surgery involves some sort of mastopexy (breast lift) and an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck, mini-tummy tuck or mini-abdominoplasty) depending on the degree of redundancy. Abdominal stretch marks (abdominal striations) can be excised and residual stretch marks are more taut and seem less crepy. Occasionally women will also like a breast augmentation to restore breast size. Also, sometimes liposuction of the hip and flank area is performed to eliminate persistent pockets of fat in the love handle and waist area.   Every “Mommy Make-Over” is customized to meet each patients individual needs For more information check my website at www.drgenter.com, call my office at 215-572-7744,  or email us at info@drgenter.com.
