Pregnancy and childbirth can be some of the most rewarding experiences in a woman's life. Unfortunately, the effects on your breasts, abdomen, and overall body are not so wonderful. Many women are left with fat deposits, stretched skin, and sagging breasts after childbirth even though they live a healthy, active lifestyle. Many women choose mommy makeover surgery in Boston from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Tantillo. He will customize a set of procedures to help you regain your pre-pregnancy shape and give your self-image a big lift.
You've dedicated your attention to others, now it's your turn for some attention. To find out more about mommy makeovers, visit with Dr. Tantillo when you request a consultation with him.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers help both younger and older moms erase many of the after-effects of pregnancy on their bodies. It is a comprehensive set of cosmetic surgery procedures that Dr. Tantillo tailors specifically to your body and self-improvement goals. Women commonly choose from the following procedures:
- Tummy tuck is the most popular mommy makeover procedure because pregnancy affects every woman's belly. The abdominal muscles often stretch and separate to the point where they can't return to their original flat, tight form. Also, the external skin is left wrinkled, sagging, and even striped with unattractive stretch marks.
- Breast enhancement procedures such as breast lift and breast augmentation can boost your self-esteem through a firmer, fuller bustline.
- Liposuction reduces stubborn fat deposits on areas such as the thighs, hips, arms, and the all-too-common rolls on the belly.
- Facial plastic surgery gives older moms a more youthful and rejuvenated facial look - choose from facelifts, eyelid surgery, and more.
Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Women throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island in their 20s to 50s turn to Dr. Tantillo for mommy makeovers to revive their overall appearance and gain self-confidence. If you are considering additional pregnancies, Dr. Tantillo will probably recommend that you delay your mommy makeover, as the improvements you gain will likely be diminished.
Although combining multiple procedures in one surgery is complicated, women often choose mommy makeovers for the single recovery period. You can be reassured that you will be in good hands with Dr. Tantillo - a Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon who has many years of experience performing cosmetic surgery procedures.
Recovery & Results
Your recovery experience will depend on the mommy makeover procedures you undergo. Most patients should plan to restrict activities for a few weeks. Dr. Tantillo clears most of his patients to return to non-strenuous activities, including work, after about 7 to 10 days, and allows them to begin adding back in vigorous exercise soon after that.
Once recovery is complete, Dr. Tantillo's mommy makeover patients enjoy renewed satisfaction with their flat tummies, enhanced breast appearance, and refined body contours. Motherhood can bring a whole new set of demands - after giving so much to others, you deserve to give back to yourself.
