What Procedures Can Be Included with a Mommy Makeover?
One of the most affected physical areas during pregnancy is your midsection. Your skin and abdominal muscles stretch out, and they may struggle to return to their former state once your pregnancy has ended. As a result, you may be left with stretch marks and, in some cases, a flap or pouch of skin that hangs down from your belly. Dr. Michael Burgdorf can help you achieve an appearance closer to your pre-pregnancy body through the abdominoplasty procedure, more commonly known as the tummy tuck.
This procedure tightens your skin, reduces obvious stretch marks, eliminates any overhanging skin, restores your belly button, and makes your abdominal muscles visible again. For abdominoplasty, the belly button is key. Dr. Burgdorf offers a specialized belly button procedure to make the area appear more youthful and attractive, with individualized scar placement to maximize clothing options after surgery. Additionally, he uses SAFE lipo (Separation, Aspiration, Fat Equilibration) with a power-assisted device to sculpt and refine your contours.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try with diet and exercise, certain areas of your body just won’t lose that final bit of pregnancy fat. Liposuction can help reduce or remove stubborn love handles, the pouch on your belly, or the muffin top that you never used to have when you wore your favorite jeans. Liposuction can also be used to sculpt other parts of your body that may be giving you trouble, including the thighs, buttocks, and bra strap areas.
After having a baby, some women may desire fuller breasts while others seek perkier, more youthful breasts. Often, these goals can be achieved simultaneously. If breast implants are chosen for your mommy makeover, Dr. Burgdorf uses devices that are proportional and symmetrical to the rest of your body, employing his proprietary 5-star sizing system and 6-string assessment strategy.
Dr. Burgdorf offers a wide variety of breast procedures, including augmentation, reductions, lifts, areola reductions, nipple reductions, and inverted nipple correction. During your initial consultation, Dr. Burgdorf will listen closely to your wishes and help you to choose the procedures that best fit your needs.
Dr. Burgdorf understands that you may feel hesitation or even embarrassment in discussing the appearance and function of your external genitalia. As with any aspect of your body, he wants you to feel as comfortable as possible when you discuss your concerns and wishes with him. He will work with you to formulate a plastic surgery treatment plan that encourages self-confidence and comfort while striving for natural-looking, aesthetic results.
If your pregnancy has left you with an enlarged, stretched, or misshapen vagina, labia, or clitoral hood, then you may be suffering from lowered sexual enjoyment or dissatisfaction with your appearance. We have a number of external procedures available to help. Dr. Burgdorf believes that every part of you deserves equal respect and never wants you to feel shame or embarrassment when you ask him for assistance.
