mommy makeover patientAs a mother, having and caring for your children are, without question, one of the most fulfilling parts of your life, but that doesn’t mean you have to enjoy everything during the aftermath of parenthood.

Pregnancy and childbirth tend to bring about change in your body. You will gain and lose weight, plus your skin will lose its elasticity in some areas. As a result, you could feel as if your entire appearance has transformed, and you may long to return to the way you looked before having children.

Is it possible to regain your pre-baby body? You may not think that it’s likely without a rigorous diet and exercise routine, but in reality, you can return to a slimmer version of yourself with a mommy makeover.

If you’d like to be in your favorite bathing suit come summer but are apprehensive about showing off your body, a mommy makeover with Dr. Lickstein may be able to help.

The Right Procedures for You

A mommy makeover isn’t necessarily made up of distinct procedures. Commonly, surgery will consist of a breast lift and augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction, but it may also include an arm or thigh lift, depending on the unique contours of your body.

A mommy makeover is designed to help you return to your pre-baby body, which may include procedures that aren’t always associated with the surgery. During a consultation with Dr. Lickstein, you can discuss the areas of concern that you would like treated and decide upon the procedures that will be the most beneficial.

If you are experiencing skin laxity around your chest that is causing your breasts to hang lower than what would be considered natural or if they lack fullness, an augmentation or lift may be able to restore their size and positioning.

A tummy tuck will reposition muscles in the abdomen that may have stretched during pregnancy and remove any remaining skin that may be contributing to added volume around the stomach. Dr. Lickstein may also employ liposuction if you display any localized regions of fat that detract from your ideal shape.

Most patients who choose to undergo a mommy makeover find it beneficial to receive several surgical procedures at once. Your downtime is limited to the few surgeries that you receive, and you’re able to achieve your cosmetic goals in one sitting.

Not Interested In Surgery?

You may want to improve the contours of your body but don’t want to receive surgery to do so. Fortunately, there are nonsurgical procedures available to help you get near the slimmer profile that you desire.

CoolSculpting is a popular nonsurgical method that reduces fat in the body. Through a process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells and kills them. As a result, your body metabolizes the fat and eliminates it entirely.

Although your treatment with CoolSculpting will be gradual compared to the immediacy of surgery, the technique is still one of the most efficient ways to remove unwanted fat without a single incision.
