Rule #1: Kids ruin everything.
Kids are a blessing, without a doubt. There is also nothing a child (or children) can’t destroy. Take a clean, new home for example. Let three kids loose, and the building can be condemned after 30 minutes with PB&J sandwiches. Take them to a restaurant and it becomes a Superfund hazardous waste site. These things, however, are nothing compared to what having a child can do to your body.
What was perky… sags. What was flaunted… is hidden like a dirty secret. What was firm and sculpted… is flabby and sad.
Now that you’re done having kids, you look in the mirror in despair. You’ve tried creams, personal trainers, and maybe even noninvasive lasers and ultrasounds that promise to firm up and tighten after only 30 treatments and a new diet. But these haven’t produced the results you’re looking for.
The “mommy makeover” is a catch-all term that refers to body contouring procedures that provide results that aren’t obtainable through working out or “noninvasive” treatments that often cost more than surgery with much less effect. Procedures often involved in a “mommy makeover” include mastopexy (breast lift), breast augmentation, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction.
Scheduling a consult allows me to discuss these procedures in detail with you after a detailed evaluation. An individual treatment plan will be suggested, and the cost of different procedures will be provided.
Please call with any questions and to schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you!
