Having a baby is an exciting time in a woman’s life. However, newborns require constant attention, and many women find that they have precious little time to themselves following the birth of their child. Even if they do find time to exercise, for some women it becomes nearly impossible to return their body to the way it looked prior to their pregnancy. This change can be incredibly disheartening and damaging to a woman’s self-esteem. It may make a woman feel unattractive, which could, in turn, cause a strained relationship with her partner.
At Gabay & Gottlieb Cosmetic Surgery in Philadelphia, PA, we believe that all mothers deserve to feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. If you’re unhappy about how your body looks after giving birth, and diet and exercise are not giving you the results you’d hoped for, we invite you to speak to one of our surgeons for a free mommy makeover consultation.
Procedures for Moms
We offer several procedures to help moms in South Jersey, Bucks County, PA, and Montgomery County, PA achieve their ideal body. During your consultation, you can discuss your goals with one of our surgeons, who will help determine the most appropriate cosmetic procedures.
Liposuction is used to remove stubborn, fatty deposits in a patient’s body that persist even after proper diet and exercise. Most people in Philadelphia, PA are familiar with the idea that liposuction can help slim down your waistline, but it can also be used for other problem areas like thighs, hips, buttocks, and upper arms. One benefit about liposuction is that there is very minimal scarring since the incisions are only about a quarter inch in length.
While Liposuction will remove fat cells from the body, it will not improve the appearance of sagging skin that often occurs after pregnancy or major weight loss. Depending on the patient, the surgeon may advise that both Liposuction and a tummy tuck would give the patient her desired results. A tummy tuck is best for Princeton, NJ patients whose goal is to remove loose skin and tighten their abdomen. This procedure is not recommended for women who are planning to have more children, as they will likely need to have the procedure again after giving birth to their next child to retain the results they wanted.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Your breasts will naturally change during the course of your pregnancy, and they may even grow a size or two. However, after giving birth, they will slowly begin to lose some of the volume that they gained during pregnancy. Breastfeeding may also result in a loss of elasticity in the breasts. A breast lift will help give your profile a more youthful appearance, but it will not change the size of your breasts. Women who choose to undergo this procedure may continue to breastfeed normally if they wish.
Breast Implants and Augmentation
For women who want to fill out their breasts in Princeton, NJ to replace the volume that was lost following their pregnancy, breast implants may be used in conjunction with a breast lift to achieve the desired appearance. We stock a multitude of sizes to help our patients whether they want a minimal enhancement or a dramatic change.
All mothers should feel gorgeous, and at Gabay & Gottlieb Cosmetic Surgery we make it our mission to make sure that they do. Moms in Bucks County, PA, Montgomery County, PA, and South Jersey are invited to make an appointment today for a free consultation.
