Many moms just like you have worked hard to regain their beautiful body, yet, still don’t like what they see in the mirror. Perhaps you remember fondly back to the days before kids when you had a svelte figure that was the envy of all the guys — and gals. You flaunted your bikini at the beach, wore short-shorts like nobody’s business and could fit perfectly in off-the-rack clothing. Fast forward to today, a decade and three kids later, and you don’t recognize the woman you see in the mirror. Perhaps you’ve put on a few pounds or more and the stomach you once were so proud of now bulges out above the waistband of your jeans with rolls of skin that you cant get rid of.
The hustle and bustle of daily life caring for children certainly takes its toll — on the body. From breastfeeding to hormonal, metabolic and dietary changes, your body isn’t what it used to be. It’s time you did something for yourself. Get your pre-pregnancy body back and reclaim that svelte woman you once were. You owe it to yourself to feel confident, sexy and healthy again. Your first simple step is to take advantage of your complimentary consultation with Dr. Mariam Awada, Plastic Surgeon of Michigan Cosmetic Surgery and call 248-948-5500 or send us an email inquiry with the form to the right.
What’s a Mommy Makeover?
This is a newer trend in plastic surgery designed for moms who want to invest in the complete package of multiple plastic surgery procedures to restore their post-pregnancy bodies, according to Dr. Mariam Awada. Pregnancy itself may have done a number on your stomach, leaving angry stretch marks that won’t go away despite all the topical ointments out there promising amazing results. Then, as if that wasn’t enough, years of breast feeding can result in sagging deflated breasts. Plus, you may have bulging abdomen and excess pat pockets that just won’t respond to diet and exercise. All of these concerns can be effectively addressed in four main surgeries: breast lift with and without breast augmentation, liposuction and tummy tucks (also known as abdominoplasty). This combination of cosmetic surgery procedures is becoming most sought after by middle-aged women in their 40s who recognize the need to take their bodies back to the knock out shape.
Want a flat, well-toned looking abdomen but diet and exercise have done nothing for you? That’s because all that stretching of the skin and abdominal wall (muscles included) that happened during pregnancy doesn’t just bounce back. Sometimes it’s necessary to remove excess fat and skin to result in a more sculpted abdomen. That’s where a tummy tuck with liposuction comes in. In addition to yur new abs, a breast lift or augmentation will help restore the fullness, perkiness, tautness and proportion to your breasts — something that may have been robbed from you during all those years of breastfeeding, hormonal changes and weight fluctuations. Of course, you wouldn’t trade that experience for anything, but now’s the time to get your flat abs and hourglass shape and perky breasts back. For those stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away no matter how many spinning classes you take, you may need liposuction. This procedure removes excess fat deposits to improve your body’s natural contours. Dr. Mariam Awada will use her expertise to contour your body and keep all things in proportion. To get an hour glass shape she removes excess fat in focal areas, effectively sculpting problem areas such as flanks (love handles), hips, and thighs.
