Your Mommy Makeover options:
Simply, a Mommy Makeover helps restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state. Your makeover can encompass a range of surgeries, but what matters most is attaining your distinct objectives. During your personal consultation, Dr. Stark will help you identify your goals and select procedures to best achieve your objectives.
A Mommy Makeover usually focuses on removing excess skin from the abdomen, tightening stretched abdominal muscles, removing stretch marks from the belly area, correcting the shape and placement of the breasts, and contouring the body. A Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about four to five hours.
Your Mommy Makeover options
Some of our most popular and effective treatments for moms in the Philadelphia area include:
Through incisions around the areolae and/or under the breast, Dr. Stark creates a more youthful and contoured shape. With his meticulous techniques and attention to fine detail, he is able to minimize the appearance of scars.
Despite diet and exercise, the abdomen is often a problem spot for many women. Pregnancy causes widening and loosening of the muscles, fluctuations in weight can cause excess or drooping of skin and genetics may work against us in the battle for a flat tummy. Dr. Stark is able to stretch and tighten the muscle, as well as remove excess skin, minimizing the appearance of scars and improving the overall tone and contour of the abdomen.
Liposuction is a way of permanently suctioning fat from different parts of the body. Usually these areas are those that are stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Stark uses the S.A.F.E. and high-def techniques to achieve a leaner, more streamlined outcome in his mommy makeover surgeries.
With age and childbearing, breasts tend to fall and deflate from their original position. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the breast in the most natural-looking way using silicone or saline implants, or the patients own fat obtained from liposuction of other problem areas of the body. Dr. Stark works closely with each patient to achieve the desired shape and size. For your mommy makeover breast augmentation, Dr. Stark uses a rapid-recovery breast augmentation technique to minimize trauma to the existing breast tissues.
Mommy Makeover recovery
Recovery from a mommy makeover varies, depending on the extent of the surgery and contouring involved in each individual case. Most women are able to return to work and resume daily activities one to two weeks after their mommy makeover and are fully healed about six weeks after their mommy makeover. Final results are able to be appreciated after three to six months post-operatively.
