Baltimore mommy makeovers restore your figure.
A mommy makeover is a comprehensive set of procedures used to treat all the areas which change during pregnancy. There are 4 major variations of the mommy makeover we offer to our patients at Advanced Plastic Surgery. We recommend that patients prioritize the areas important to them, so we can appropriately discuss your interests and create a reasonable treatment plan that addresses your needs. The goal of Baltimore mommy makeovers is to use combinations of body contouring techniques to help mothers return, as best as possible, to their pre-pregnancy body.
Breast changes after pregnancy.
Many mothers are concerned that breastfeeding will ruin their youthful breasts. Breastfeeding is not the only culprit. Other factors such as weight gain, cup size and smoking can make the breasts sag after pregnancy. Pregnancy, however, always affects the breasts. As the breasts prepare for milk production, the milk glands swell, replacing the natural fatty breast composition. After pregnancy and lactation, this expanded system of ducts can atrophy to varying degrees. As a result, the three most common changes seen are increased elasticity, increased softness and increased sagginess. Some patients can become so elastic they actually sag and require a breast lift to establish a better breast shape.
