At David Shifrin MD, we often meet with women struggling to get back to their pre-pregnancy shape. The physiologic changes of pregnancy permanently alter a woman’s body, affecting confidence and self image. These changes can include:
- Stretched, sagging skin
- Protruding abdomen
- Drooping, smaller breasts
- Unsightly stretch marks
The common changes seen after pregnancy are permanent, leaving many women unhappy with their postpartum shape. Our Chicago patients often comment on how happy they are fitting into their pre baby clothes and how the procedure has helped improve their self image and overall confidence.
About Mommy Makeover
The Mommy Makeover is a set of cosmetic procedures that will help return your body to its pre-pregnancy shape. The most common combination is cosmetic breast surgery and body contouring. Abdominoplasty and liposuction can give you back your smooth, flat tummy and eliminate the “muffin top” that came with having kids. For breast enhancement, many Chicago women choose a breast lift to help return to their previous youthful shape, in some cases enhancing volume by adding breast augmentation. Chicago women who choose tummy tuck and breast enhancement procedures can eliminate stretch marks, lose unwanted excess skin and fat and reshape their breasts to enjoy a return to their more toned, youthful body shape.
Other procedures are also available for the mom who wants to look her best. Some women choose to undergo facial rejuvenation procedures at the same time as their body contouring surgery. It is not uncommon for women to get injectable treatments to enhance the results of their Mommy Makeover. During your consultation, Dr. Shifrin will help you decide on a treatment plan that best meets your goals and expectations to look and feel your best.
