Mommy Makeover: Palo Alto

Bringing a new life into the world is a marvelous experience and something to be proud of. Along with the joys of motherhood, however, comes the toll that pregnancy and breastfeeding can take on a woman’s body. At Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto, Dr. Vistnes performs our Bay Area mommy makeover with artistry and skill to help you reclaim your body after childbirth – because you deserve it!

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical treatments to help a woman get her body back to a more youthful shape after pregnancy or nursing. Mommy makeovers address pregnancy-related cosmetic issues with the breasts, belly, and other areas of the body. This combination of surgeries may be performed in one or more procedures.

Reasons to Have a Mommy Makeover

Although every woman’s pregnancy is different, certain cosmetic complaints are common among women after childbearing or breastfeeding. Many women get our mommy makeover in Palo Alto to:

  • Restore volume and perkiness to deflated, sagging breasts: The breasts increase in volume during pregnancy in preparation for lactation. After pregnancy or when breastfeeding is concluded, the breasts lose volume, sometimes more than was there to begin with. When the skin of the breasts has been overstretched, it can cause the breasts to droop and sag.
  • Tone the abdomen and remove loose, excess skin: To skin of the belly can be stretched beyond its limit and abdominal muscles can become weakened or separated during pregnancy. Many women have loose stomach muscles, excess skin, and stretch marks on the belly after childbirth.
  • Reduce stubborn fat deposits: Weight gain is a natural, unavoidable part of pregnancy, and when you are eating for two, it’s easy to gain more weight than you should. Although a healthy diet and exercise program can help, many new mothers are left with stubborn fat deposits on the belly, hips, flanks, thighs, or buttocks that resist all fitness efforts.

What Procedures Are Commonly Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Cosmetic procedures included in your mommy makeover in San Jose will depend on your individual post-pregnancy cosmetic issues. Dr. Vistnes at Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto will custom-tailor a mommy makeover surgical plan specifically for you.

Tummy Tuck

This procedure tightens and strengthens abdominal muscles, trims away loose, excess skin, and removes stretch marks located on the lower abdomen. In a tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Vistnes can restore your belly to a tighter, flatter smoother state, closer to the way it was pre-pregnancy.

Breast Augmentation

If loss of volume after pregnancy has caused your breasts to look saggy and deflated, a breast augmentation procedure may be included in your mommy makeover. Breast enhancement with implants can restore volume, firmness, and shape to droopy, post-pregnancy breasts.
