Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding all place immense strain on a woman’s body, and can result in undesirable aesthetic changes to a woman’s thighs, breasts and abdomen. New mothers can be unhappy with the post-pregnancy changes to their breasts, thighs, hips, labia and abdomens.
Attempting to restore one’s pre-pregnancy physique while caring for a newborn and juggling family responsibilities may feel like an impossible undertaking, especially when some of the post-pregnancy body changes persist despite proper diet and exercise regimens. Fortunately, innovations in the field of cosmetic body contouring procedures have resulted in a vast number of body sculpting surgeries with shorter recovery periods, allowing busy mothers to enhance their physical appearance and help improve their self-confidence levels with minimal interruption to their busy schedules.

Fortunately, with a Mommy Makeover, which is a combination of surgical procedures, women alongside their board-certified plastic surgeon can address and correct this type of post-pregnancy deterioration to achieve back their optimal physique, thereby creating a more firm, toned, and sculpted body.

All medical and surgical procedures have inherent risks and potential complications that are associated with them. It is imperative that you understand the potential risks, complications and consequences that can arise after the medical or surgical procedure you undertake. This understanding will better allow you to be able to provide informed consent, based on the comparison to the potential benefit of the desired procedure.
Although the materialization of inherent risks is rare and developing complications is unlikely, these are real events that can occur. Dr. Sinno will help you to understand the risk/benefit profile of your desired procedure.
