Pregnancy and post-pregnancy can have several undesirable effects on a woman’s body. Most women experience a degree of breast sag following nursing, while weight gain causes the skin on the abdomen to stretch and hang. While exercise and diet can help the body return to its pre-pregnancy state, it’s sometimes not enough. This is why many women in Greenwich turn to Dr. Sandra Margoles. Dr. Margoles offers mommy makeover procedures for women looking to restore their body and confidence following pregnancy. The mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring procedures that targets the breast and abdomen. In this blog post, Dr. Sandra Margoles discusses these procedures in detail.
The weight gained during pregnancy causes the skin to stretch and abdominal muscles to weaken or separate. Tummy surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, tightens and flattens the abdomen. During the procedure, excess abdominal skin on the abdomen is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. This often minimizes or removes stretch marks on the abdomen. Tummy tuck can successfully restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state or, better yet, improve upon it!
Dr. Margoles commonly pairs the tummy tuck procedure with liposuction. Liposuction sculpts your body by removing unwanted fat deposits. This is particularly beneficial for women frustrated by the appearance of “love handles” or a “muffin top” after giving birth. Liposuction can also treat the upper arms, neck, cheeks, hips, buttocks and thighs for a sleek and proportionate body figure.
Breast lift addresses sagging that commonly follows pregnancy and nursing. During breast lift, the breasts and nipples are raised to a higher position on the chest wall. Excess skin is eliminated while the remaining skin is tightened. The procedure can also correct downward-pointing nipples and reduce the size of the areolas. The result is younger-looking, perkier breasts.
Once a mother stops breastfeeding, her breasts typically shrink, causing the breasts to look deflated. Saline or silicone breast implants can make the breasts look fuller and perkier by adding volume and boosting cleavage. Many of Dr. Margoles’ breast augmentation patients like to combine the procedure with breast lift to improve the overall size, shape and position of the breasts.
