Tighten and Tone Your Body After Pregnancy
They say that a baby changes everything. However, you may not have expected your body to change much after having a child. Even after losing your baby weight, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly, you may find that your stomach sags, your breasts have lost their youthful, perky look, or that you have unwanted fat accumulated around your waist. During pregnancy, an increase in weight and fat can cause the skin on your midsection to become stretched, and it may lose elasticity. Nursing enlarges your breasts, and after your child is weaned, you may find that they never return to their original size and shape. Fortunately, Dr. Rodolfo Castillo offers the mommy makeover at his Tijuana practice, combining multiple aesthetic procedures to restore your pre-baby body. Contact us today to learn more.
A mommy makeover specifically targets the parts of your body that are most affected by pregnancy. Because each woman responds to pregnancy differently, the specific procedures in a mommy makeover depend on your body and your aesthetic goals. Dr. Castillo treats you with personalized service, explaining procedures in detail and allowing you to be an active participant in your aesthetic treatment. Because the Mommy Makeover is a completely customized procedure and targets the specific issues that arose after your pregnancy, individual consultation is extremely important. Together, you will discuss your aesthetic goals and the potential results of the procedure. Dr. Castillo will help you choose procedures that will have optimal results and restore your pre-pregnancy figure as much as possible.
A number of procedures can target the areas most affected by pregnancy, including:
Other procedures can also be combined during surgery, like a rinoplasty, which are unrelated to the mommy makeover.
A Tighter Tummy
During a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, Dr. Castillo will remove excess skin and tighten muscles that may have become weak or separated during pregnancy, resulting in a flat and toned abdomen. Note that a tummy tuck does not remove all the stretch marks caused be pregnancy, but can address those under the bellybutton. The scar is specifically designed to be covered by underwear, and certain bikinis can even be worn without showing the scar! Additionally, these marks may be less noticeable with the removal of excess skin.
Firmer, Perkier Breasts
During breast feeding the volume of the breasts increases, in many cases causes the ligaments that hold them to stretch. When breast feeding ends, the breasts return to their initial volume and sometimes even lose more volume than their pre-pregnancy size, resulting in a lower position and unattractive shape.
A breast lift can treat drooping breasts and restore a more youthful appearance. During this procedure, Dr. Castillo will remove excess skin, reshape and tighten breast tissue, and relocate the nipple and areola to higher position. If needed, the nipple size can also be altered. The breast augmentation procedure is offered separately and in conjunction with breast lifts. He provides several types of implants, and the procedure offers immediate and dramatic results, restoring the shape, size, and perkiness to your breasts.
Like some woman, your breasts may have gotten larger with pregnancy, and they have never returned to their original size. Now your larger breasts produce back and shoulder pain, interfere with your daily activities, and cause self-consciousness. During a breast reduction procedure, Dr. Castillo will remove excess skin and breast tissue, and reposition the nipples and areolas. With better proportioned breasts, you will feel more comfortable and experience the confidence that you knew before your pregnancy.
