Of the many sacrifices women make in order to provide the best life possible for their children, her body and subsequent mental state often rank near the top. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s body goes through tremendous stress and change in order to give and sustain life for her child. Naturally, these changes result in physical differences of the body from pre-pregnancy to motherhood.
The physical changes that occur as the result of pregnancy and child-rearing can often be difficult to reverse. Even the most rigorous diet and exercise programs sometimes cannot get rid of excess fat pockets and skin folds that appear on the body, and signs of fatigue and stress can manifest along the face, causing you to look older than you really are.
Dr. Matthew Bindewald offers innovative procedures that can address all of these issues. A “Mommy Makeover” is a combination of aesthetic enhancement treatments that is customized to your unique needs. Mommy Makeovers are designed specifically for mothers who want to revitalize their appearance and restore their pre-pregnancy figures. With comprehensive treatment from Dr. Bindewald in his San Antonio offices, you can achieve your goals and renew your body, as well as your self-esteem.
While the Mommy Makeover is tailored specifically to your unique needs, here is a list of some of the procedures that Dr. Bindewald will consider when discussing the goals of your procedure with you:
Breast lift surgery, medically referred to as Mastopexy, can effectively eliminate excess skin that may be causing a sagging appearance and tightens the remainder, lifting the breasts to a higher position and helping them look more youthful and “perky.”
A breast augmentation with saline or silicone implants can restore breast volume that may have been lost after pregnancy or breastfeeding. Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and types, and help you attain your ideal bust.
A cornerstone of any Mommy Makeover, the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) focuses on the area of the most obvious physical change after pregnancy: the abdomen. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are stretched, and sometimes pulled apart. A tummy tuck is designed to tighten the abdominal muscles, remove excess skin that may have proven resistant to diet and exercise, and smooth out the remaining skin for a more toned, taut, and flat appearance.
DERMAL FILLERS AND COSMETIC INJECTABLE FACIAL REJUVENATION
The exhaustion, lack of sleep, and stress that often come with motherhood can cause premature wrinkles and fine lines to appear on the face. Cosmetic injectable facial rejuvenation can reduce signs of aging and fatigue, as well as add volume to facial features for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
A Mommy Makeover is made up of a customized combination of procedures that can be addressed at one time, or over a series of appointments. The complete Mommy Makeover typically takes about 5 hours of surgery and an overnight stay in recovery.
Your results will be immediately visible, and further improvement in appearance will occur during the months following surgery. The changes typically seen are not subtle - they are truly dramatic and can be life changing. Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle will lead to long-lasting results following your Mommy Makeover.
