A Mommy Makeover consists of several cosmetic procedures to correct the areas that are most often affected by pregnancy and childbirth. These changes can leave a woman feeling insecure and self-conscious. Dr. Lionel Meadows offers these procedures, allowing one to achieve a more youthful appearance. The most commonly combined procedures can include tummy tuck, breast augmentation with lift, and if necessary, vaginal rejuvenation and SmartLipo.
Understanding the Procedures
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) includes the removal excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen, and/or tightening of the underlying muscles. This procedure can correct bulging due to abnormal stretching of the abdominal muscles and excess skin or fat. The extent of surgery depends on the amount of skin and fat as well as the laxity of the abdominal muscles. Symptoms such as low back pain, skin rashes and abdominal discomfort may be relieved as a result of the procedure.
After childbirth, many women desire to return to their pre-baby shape and choose to surgically enhance their figure through breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) and/or breast lift (mastopexy).
Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue. The vagina can mostly be repaired by the body's own healing response. With many women, however, the tissue may not return to the same state as before childbirth. This stretching damages the vaginal walls, perineum and surrounding tissue, which often leads to diminished vaginal health. The vagina can be rejuvenated through vaginal laser therapy (diVa procedure), laser vaginal rejuvenation (LVR), and/or designer laser vaginoplasty (DVR) in order to tighten the walls of the vagina and restore the youthful look and feel of the inner and outer lips of the vaginal area.
After childbirth, women often find it difficult to return to their pre-baby weight, having a few extra pounds in new places. SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting (SmartLipo) is the most recent innovation in cosmetic body sculpting and is perfect for moms who feel they've tried everything to eliminate localized areas of fat. The procedure can be performed on nearly any place of the body and has proven particularly effective in the abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs. It can also be used on the arms, buttocks, knees and ankles.
