Becoming a mother can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a woman’s life. But childbearing and breastfeeding can also be exhausting – not to mention taxing on your body. Left with deflated, sagging, and possibly uneven breasts, along with stretch marks and excess belly fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, you may find yourself feeling demoralized, discouraged, and disappointed by the way you look.
A Mommy Makeover performed by Knoxville board-certified plastic surgeon Jay H. Lucas, M.D. can reverse the unwanted effects of childbearing.
Because no two bodies are the same, Dr. Lucas will work closely with you to design a plan for a Mommy Makeover that will provide the results you’re looking for. Your customized surgical plan will take into account the number of children you have had, the location and amount fat and excess skin on your belly, the degree of sagging in your breasts, your anatomy and skin tone, your overall health, and – of course – your goals and concerns.
Your Mommy Makeover will consist of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) – with or without liposuction – and a breast lift – with or without implants. The specifics of your Mommy Makeover will depend upon the degree of correction appropriate for your body. For example, the amount excess fat you have will determine whether or not liposuction is needed to flatten and contour your abdominal area. The location of your belly fat and excess skin will determine if a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck would be best for you. The volume of tissue present in your breasts will determine whether or not breast implants are appropriate. Dr. Lucas may also recommend body contouring through liposuction to reshape other areas like your hips, flank, or sides to further enhance your outcome.
