Mommy Makeover Benefits

Reasons to Treat Yourself to a Mommy Makeover

There is no denying that pregnancy, childbirth and nursing can take a huge toll on your body. After having children, you might feel self-conscious or embarrassed by sagging, deflated breasts, an abdominal pooch and excess body fat. Unfortunately, as a busy mother, you probably do not have as much time as you need to exercise regularly or follow a strict diet to achieve your ideal physique.

If you do not plan to have any more children, you might want to consider undergoing a mommy makeover. This is a combination of procedures can reverse the effects of pregnancy and nursing and help you recapture the slim, youthful figure you enjoyed before kids. Most mommy makeovers include breast lift or augmentation with tummy tuck; other procedures like liposuction can be added to a mommy makeover to enhance the results. Often the procedures are combined into a single operation, so you can achieve your ultimate outcomes sooner than you would if the procedures were performed separately.

Although mommy makeover is an involved process, most women feel the benefits are well worth it. Read on as Dr. A.J. Khalil reveals three key reasons to treat yourself to a mommy makeover.

Breast Lift After Breast Implant Removal

Do You Need a Breast Lift after Removing Implants?

As the years pass, some women with breast implants decide they no longer want large breasts. For personal or medical reasons, they make the decision to remove their implants.

In these cases, a common concern is how the breasts will look after removing (a.k.a., explanting) the implants. The surgery can go one of two ways: either the breasts will look smaller after surgery yet still retain a good shape, or they will look saggy, flat or “deflated.” In the latter scenario, breast lift can be performed to raise the breasts higher on the chest.

If you are considering breast explant surgery, you may be curious whether you will need a breast lift to attain a pleasing breast contour. It is difficult to predict whether you could benefit from a lift, as it depends on several factors. The best thing to do is consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. A.J. Khalil about your options.
