Today’s mother is a busy woman who wants to provide for her family yet, still feel good about herself. This is the type of patient I see often in my cosmetic surgeon barrington office.
90% of women experience stretch marks from pregnancy or other factors. In addition, it is more difficult for mother’s to lose the weight as their body changes significantly after pregnancy. Exercise and diet are factors that everyone can control, but then there’s loss of elasticity and loose skin. In most cases; lasers, weight loss or any diet cannot shrink skin enough to compensate for most post-skin issues.
The combination of a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation is known as a “mommy makeover”. The term “mommy makeover” came from millions of women who complained about sagging breasts and extra skin and fat from the abdominal section. When the two surgeries are combined the end result is drastic -a firmer, more youthful body.
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, helps to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. The best candidates have pockets of fat or loose skin that haven't responded well to diet and exercise. The procedure can also be useful for women with stretched skin and muscles from pregnancy. The procedure takes approximately two to five hours and can be performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia with a sedative. Recovery time ranges from two weeks to a few months. With a balanced diet and regular exercise, results are long-lasting. Cosmetic Surgeon in Barrington have a high satisfaction rate with my tummy tucks.
