Dr. George Bitar: Having a baby is a blessing, but to some women the aftereffect that has on their body may feel more like a curse. A healthy diet and exercise aren't always enough to get you back to where you were before your baby.
Hi! I am Dr. George Bitar, board-certified plastic surgeon and medical director of the Bitar Cosmetic Surgery Institute and I'm going to discuss how to get the perfect after baby body.
The mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures that can enhance the woman's body and restore it back to a more youthful attractive appearance after having babies.
It mainly addresses the breasts, tummy and thighs, the areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth. Beginning with the breasts, the make concern is to restore the breasts to where they used to be before pregnancy and that would entail a breast lift.
Sometimes a breast lift is not enough and the breast implant to give more volume is also necessary. Moving downwards, the tummy is next, after having children the tummy loses muscle tone and the skin looses elasticity. And in minority of situations tummy liposuction can restore the tummy contour. But in the majority of cases a tummy tuck is needed to tighten the muscles and get rid of the excess skin and fat.
Another area of major concern is the thighs and hips which the majority of the times respond very nicely to liposuction alone.
Every woman is unique and every mommy makeover is customized to each individual's personal needs, whether it's a breast lift, tummy tuck or liposuction. You have built your family and taking care of your kids, now it's time to take care of you.
Restore your body after your baby and be the best mommy you can be.
