While the natural aging process can change the way your body looks over time, significant life events, like weight loss and motherhood can also alter your physical appearance. New moms may experience changes to breast size and shape, accumulation of stubborn fat, and loose skin around their midsections. While these body changes can be challenging, plastic surgery care with a mommy makeover at our Libertyville, IL plastic surgery clinic can help rejuvenate your body and allow you to look and feel as you did before aesthetic changes caused by pregnancy.
Options for Mommy Makeover Treatments
A mommy makeover is a set of procedures utilized to firm and tighten skin and muscles and reduce deposits of stubborn fat. Mommy makeovers can include varying procedures to effectively address your needs, depending on what particular aesthetic issues you’re facing. Dr. Tijunelis takes time to go over each patient's goals to tailor treatment in a way that makes the most sense for you.
Mommy makeovers at Lake County Plastic Surgery Center can consist of:
Tummy Tucks - With pregnancy, the muscles and skin around your midsection can loosen, create lack of definition and cause diastasis. While this is among one of the chief concerns that women have after pregnancy, tummy tucks or abdominoplasty treatments, are able to remove this loose skin and reposition muscles in the abdomen so your midsection appears firmer and flatter.
Liposuction - Weight gain with pregnancy is normal, but some women may find that fat accumulation in certain areas, such as stomach, hips, and thighs lingers and is difficult to diminish. Liposuction with ultrasonic technology helps to comfortably and efficiently remove fat deposits and can also be paired with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, to achieve best results.
Breast Lift/Reduction - After changes in weight caused by pregnancy or the effects of breastfeeding, breast size and shape may alter. With a breast lift, however, Dr. Tijunelis can reposition skin that so your breasts appear uplifted. In the event that large breast size is causing discomfort, Dr. Tijunelis can also perform breast reductions to provide patients with a flattering and more comfortable cup size.
Breast Augmentation - For those patients who wish to add volume to breasts after pregnancy, our options for breast augmentation can help you achieve renewed cup size. Our Libertyville mommy makeover treatments include natural breast augmentation with your own fat cells or augmentation through breast implants. Dr. Tijunelis can also pair breast augmentation with breast lift treatment to complete your mommy makeover in a way that provides for both larger cup size and uplifted appearance.
Labiaplasty: The term labiaplasty refers to a procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora. It is the most commonly performed female genital plastic surgery. It is an aesthetic vaginal surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the labia minora. The goal of the procedure is to reduce the labia minora so that they don't hang below the hair-bearing labia majora. A labiaplasty may be performed to reduce asymmetry when one is longer than the other or to reduce the length of the labia.
Combining Procedures for Comprehensive Care
Many patients seeking plastic surgery intervention after pregnancy utilize several procedures to help comprehensively address a suite of concerns. Dr. Tijunelis can couple any body contouring or breast enhancement procedures into one appointment to help patients completely rejuvenate their physical appearances. Lake County Plastic Surgery Center makes mommy makeovers affordable with the use of convenient financing options, including Care Credit.
