Reach Your Post-Pregnancy Body Goals With a Mommy Makeover

Your body goes through massive changes during pregnancy. For most women, it can be difficult to find time for a proper diet and exercise routine following the birth of a child leaving them feeling less than confident in their body. If you’ve been unable to achieve your post-pregnancy body goals, even with diet and exercise efforts, aΒ mommy makeover procedure may be what you’ve been looking for.

What the mommy makeover procedure includes:

Mommy Makeover in DCThe mommy makeover procedure is meant to be tailored to your specific needs. There are a variety of procedures that women choose to undergo as a part of their makeover.

  • Tummy tuck– The tummy tuck is very popular for women who have gone through a pregnancy. Pregnancy can change the look of your stomach and leave behind stretch marks, excess skin, and fat. A tummy tuck can help you get a flatter stomach with toned-looking abdominal muscles post-baby.
  • Liposuction– Not all women need a full tummy tuck to achieve their tummy goals. Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat in the stomach as well as other areas of the body where you may have gained a bit of extra fat during pregnancy that doesn’t seem to want to go away.
  • Breast augmentation– Many women opt for some type of breast surgery post-baby. A great time to have any sort of breast altering procedure is after you’re done having children due to the effects pregnancy can have on the breasts. If pregnancy has left your breasts looking a little deflated or you’ve always wanted to enlarge your breasts, a breast augmentation may be right for you.
  • Breast lift– The breast lift procedure is another common procedure for women post-pregnancy. Breastfeeding, pregnancy, and aging can make your breasts sag over time which, for many women, isn’t ideal. A breast lift can help boost your breasts making them look more youthful, and can be combined with an augmentation or breast reduction procedure.

Read a review from a recent patient:

“I did a lot of research, and had multiple consults before ultimately choosing to move forward with my breast augmentation with Dr. Bruno. Of the multiple plastic surgeons I vetted, Bruno/Brown was by far the most articulate, thorough, professional and kind clinics. With any plastic surgery/operation, there is always a level of anxiety, because it is a big life decision, but they were able to put me at ease throughout the entire process. Their follow through has been equally impressive – Dr. Bruno called me the evening of my surgery to check on me, and his office called me the following morning to check on me as well. I cannot say enough good things about them, and would recommend them 10X over.”

How Does a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?

Hundreds of thousands of women decide to undergo a breast augmentation procedure each year. The procedure is designed to help women increase their breast size, improve symmetry, and add cleavage. There are several ways to reach your breast goals through augmentation, but for those who do not wish to have breast implants, fat grafting is a great way to achieve fuller breasts without the need for an implant.

What sets the fat grafting breast augmentation apart

Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DCThe fat grafting procedure is great for women who have unwanted fat in other areas of their bodies. During the procedure, we can take fat from one area of your body, such as the stomach, and transfer it into your breasts. While the traditional breast augmentation procedure will reshape and resize the appearance of your breasts using an implant, this procedure can achieve similar results using a careful injection of fat.

This procedure is also great for those who are worried about scarring. For the fat grafting breast augmentation, small needle-sized incisions are made in discreet locations of the breasts in order to achieve the desired shape, size, and lift.

Depending on your goals, one augmentation option may be best for you, but how do you choose?

The Types of Breast Augmentation You Can Choose From
