Become the hot mom with a lipoabdominoplasty or a mommy makeover
Did swimsuit season leave you feeling fat and frumpy? Were you self-conscious while playing on the beach with your kids? Don’t despair. Your Frisco cosmetic surgeon offers options to lift your spirits. Take this time to explore your options. Dr. Alan Greenberg can provide you with a lipoabdominoplasty or a mommy makeover to lift or tighten your post-pregnancy body.
Choosing between a lipoabdominoplasty or a mommy makeover
Our Frisco cosmetic surgeon knows that pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s waist and breasts. The body retains fat while muscles and skin stretch to accommodate expanding abdomens and full breasts. If your body does not snap back into shape, it’s time to help Mother Nature.
A lipoabdominoplasty is a modern type of tummy tuck. The fascia or tissue covering the abdominal wall is tightened. Unwanted fat is removed via liposuction and excess skin is excised. The procedure addresses the following conditions.
- A protruding abdominal wall
- Deposits of fat on the flanks, hips and back
- A muffin-top
- Surplus skin and tissue draping over the lower abdomen
- A misshapen navel
Our mommy makeover usually features a lipoabdominoplasty as well as other procedures. These may include a breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, a transfer of fat to other body parts or vaginal rejuvenation. In addition to the issues that the lipoabdominoplasty corrects, a mommy makeover can include adjustments to the following.
- Drooping breasts that point downward
- Deflated breasts
- Stubborn fat on the thighs, buttocks or upper arms
- A wider or looser vaginal opening
You can have a lipoabdominoplasty or a mommy makeover performed in the convenience of our offices. Our Frisco cosmetic surgeon uses local and tumescent “awake” anesthesia, avoiding the higher risk that occurs with general anesthesia. It also allows patients to provide input throughout the procedure.
Recovery is faster than with highly invasive plastic surgery. However, we ask that you take it easy for a few days so that the swelling can subside. Refrain from lifting babies or anything over 10 pounds for several weeks. In some cases, we may opt to perform mommy makeover procedures over different days.
