How to Achieve a Gorgeous Figure After Pregnancy


Posted October 08, 2019 in Mommy Makeover, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift

Motherhood is a special, personal experience. After that experience, every woman has different goals that they have set for themselves to reach.

Many of these goals revolve around reclaiming their pre-pregnancy physique, which is why the number of women considering plastic surgery to address their bodily concerns post-pregnancy has risen over the years.

This is not surprising since a noticeably higher number of mothers throughout California and the Sacramento and Granite Bay areas are turning to Dr. Scott Green’s plastic surgery practice to address the effects of pregnancy on their bodies.

“Recently, I’ve seen a definite increase in the number of women taking advantage of the cosmetic procedures that can help to restore the body after giving birth,” Dr. Green says.

Concerns such as deflated breasts, excess stomach skin, and a tummy “pooch” can all be addressed by one surgical procedure.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Consist of?

The growing number of mothers choosing plastic surgery has led to a new phrase that encapsulates all the procedures that mothers undergo: the Mommy Makeover.

While the term has no precise definition, the most popular selected procedures for a Mommy Makeover are tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, and breast augmentation.

Every Mommy Makeover Dr. Green performs is tailored to the needs of his patients.

“For patients who are concerned with small pockets of excess fat that appear around the body, I typically recommend liposuction at my Sacramento and Granite Bay practices,” Dr. Green notes.

“If they are also concerned with excess stomach skin and lax abdominal muscles after their pregnancy, a tummy tuck is usually appropriate for achieving the firm, smooth stomach they want. Many women are combining one or both of these procedures with either a breast augmentation or breast lift to restore their bodies.”

Why Choose Mommy Makeover Surgery in Sacramento or Granite Bay?

Dr. Green and his entire staff are dedicated to helping women through every step of the cosmetic surgery process following their pregnancy.

His patients choose him not only for his experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon but also for his reputation for exceeding their expectations.

Many women find that they can do more than just restore their bodies after giving birth; they can achieve the bodies they wish they had even before pregnancy.

Pregnancy often causes changes everywhere on a woman’s body, but the most dramatic changes occur in the abdominal area.

Skin, muscle, and other tissue must stretch to accommodate a growing child. After childbirth, some of this tissue may not bounce back, leaving mothers with a flabby and stretched stomach appearance.

“No amount of crunches and dieting will help a woman whose abdominal muscles have stretched out to fully restore her pre-pregnancy look,” adds Dr. Green.

Mommy Makeovers go beyond improving the appearance of the midsection. Many mothers also are disappointed with the changes they’ve seen in their breasts after pregnancy and talk with Dr. Green about a breast lift or breast augmentation.

A breast lift does just what it says; it elevates the breasts to a more youthful position. Breast augmentation can restore lost fullness or create a more voluptuous appearance. These procedures are often performed together for a more comprehensive makeover.

“Breast surgery, when combined with other procedures to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure, can make a huge difference in how a mother sees herself and how confident she feels in her own skin,” says Dr. Green.

“During the consultation, every one of my Mommy Makeover patients receives a detailed assessment of the procedures that will help them, and I work closely with each patient to find a mixture of procedures that will provide the greatest benefit for those who are finished having kids.”

Recovery Concerns

Dr. Green’s primary focus during a Mommy Makeover procedure is patient comfort and safety. “I am dedicated to maximizing safety and minimizing recovery time for women undergoing Mommy Makeovers,” adds Dr. Green.

“I know it’s a huge sacrifice to be away from your family and take a few weeks before you’re back to your old self. I strive to make the experience an overwhelmingly positive one. By combining such procedures as tummy tucks and breast augmentation, my patients are able to enjoy their looks as they enjoy raising their families.”

“It’s wonderful to help recent mothers during such a happy stage in their lives,” reflects Dr. Green. “After their recovery, they often tell me that they have improved not just their bodies, but they also feel more self-confident.”
