PRLog - Dec. 22, 2012 - BOULDER, Colo. -- Anyone who has given birth to a child knows that the body just doesn’t look the same afterwards. Even women in superior physical health and shape can attest to the changes that occur to the breast, skin, and abdominal region due to pregnancy. Pregnancy causes sagging breasts (with or without breast feeding), loose, stretched out abdominal skin, and a pot belly from stretched or separated abdominal muscles that will not go away no matter how much exercise and starvation is involved. But all of that doesn’t mean that once women become moms they simply have to accept their less-than-ideal new bodies and hide out in bulky sweaters and “mom jeans.” Women who want to recapture the youthful appearance of their old physique are ideal candidates for the Mommy Makeover at Boulder Plastic Surgery (http://www.boulderplasticsurgery.com/
Mommy Makeover’s are not about changing who a woman is, but rather helping her regain the confidence in her appearance that she may have lost once multiple pregnancies have taken their toll on the body. The majority of what a woman does once she becomes a mother is focus on the needs of others, which can be difficult to do if she is feeling run down or poorly about herself. The Mommy Makeover is becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure package at plastic surgery offices all over the country for just this reason. Mothers want to resemble the vibrant and energetic women they still are, so they’re taking control of their lives and doing something for themselves, which benefits the patient as well as all of the people she has to take care of.
Some of the Mommy Makeover surgeries involve some invasive procedures that can require up to six weeks of restricted activity and recovery time, which makes pre-surgical health important. Women who are interested in the Mommy Makeover should be in good physical health, stop smoking, and be done having children. The physicians at Boulder Plastic surgery will work with individual patients’ needs in terms of the procedures performed, which can include the following:
• Breast lift/augmentation to rectify sagging breasts and decreased breast size as a result of pregnancy and breast feeding.
• Tummy tuck to flatten out stretched or separated abdominal muscles and loose, excess skin as a result of pregnancy. This procedure involves cutting and re-stitching muscle and skin, which is why it is recommended that patients do not plan on getting pregnant after this procedure has been done to avoid complications.
• Liposuction to remove excess fat deposits that cannot be lost with diet or exercise.
Boulder Plastic Surgery is dedicated to making women look and feel their best with procedures that are as minimally invasive as possible to achieve a more natural and youthful appearance. Schedule an appointment for a consultation (http://www.boulderplasticsurgery.com/
