For many women, childbirth is the most amazing experience of their lives. However, it can take a significant toll on your body. Restoring your pre-baby figure through diet and exercise can often feel overwhelming, or even impossible. At Prestige Cosmetic Surgery, we understand that many moms feel self-conscious about their figure after childbirth and want to rejuvenate their physique. To help you achieve the figure you desire, Dr. Bernard Kopchinski offers customized mommy makeover plans at his cosmetic surgery practice in San Antonio, TX.
Your Makeover Candidacy
Mommy makeovers are unique treatment plans that are personalized to suit your needs and cosmetic goals. Typically, the procedures associated with a mommy makeover are not directed at weight loss. However, if you have successfully lost your post-pregnancy weight and are still unable to eliminate stubborn fat deposits, you may be able to achieve the figure you desire with this treatment.
Other cosmetic concerns a mommy makeover can address include:
- Sagging at the tummy or waistline
- Scarring or sagging due to a Caesarian section
- Naval hernias
- Disproportionate, sagging, or uneven breasts
- Drooping nipples
- Stretched areolas
- Decreased breast volume
