Becoming a mother doesn’t mean you can’t look as good as before. Many women love being pregnant and enjoy the gifts of new motherhood. But, many physical changes caused by pregnancy leave mothers feeling sad or down. Thanks to Mommy Makeover surgery at Destin Plastic Surgery in Florida, you don’t have to feel this way.
What Is Included In A Mommy Makeover?

All of our Mommy Makeover procedures at Destin Plastic Surgery are done on an outpatient basis which allows you to keep that busy lifestyle, meaning you’re back at home with family on the same day!
Many mothers-to-be wonder whether they should breastfeed. Many worry that nursing will ruin the shape of their breasts. The truth is that breastfeeding is not the reason breast shape changes, and that nursing offers women and their babies numerous health benefits. Changes in the breasts occur DURING pregnancy. While the female body prepares to nurture a child, milk glands in the breasts swell and replace fatty tissue. After birth, these glands shrink. What is left is skin, with little to fill it, thus, the breasts tend to sag. Plastic surgery offers an alternative – natural-looking implants that return your breasts to their youthful contour. Many moms visit Destin Plastic Surgery for breast augmentation surgery.
Some women experience extensive swelling in the breasts during their pregnancies. In addition to the postpartum loss of fat tissue, swelling causes the skin to stretch and sag. A breast lift (mastopexy) is an outpatient procedure that can remove excess skin and reduce sagging.

Pregnancy is the most evident in a woman’s abdomen. It is the 9-month home to your infant, and also the location where many stretch marks, C-section scars, and loose skin linger after birth. These “badges of motherhood” can sometimes frustrate and depress a woman even as she rejoices at the life her body helped create. Destin Plastic Surgery offers tummy tucks (abdominoplasty/lipectomy) to remove the pooch of excess skin that lies below the navel. It can also get rid of stretch marks, and turn those visible C-section scars into small bikini lines that are easy to conceal.
The most commonly-requested cosmetic surgery procedure is liposuction, and it can also benefit women after pregnancy! There are several reasons new mothers have problems losing fat in certain areas such as thighs, buttocks, and arms. Less time to exercise and a slower metabolism are 2 of the leading causes. Fortunately, Dr. Burden is able to re-sculpt the body, removing fat deposits that contribute to flabby underarms and bulges in the thighs.
Changes in skin pigmentation, called melasma, are normal during pregnancy. These changes are characterized by blotchy browns spots. If the pigment is in the epidermis, it is often helped by prescriptive skin care products that contain hydroquinone. The Anti-Aging Clinic of Destin would be happy to assist you with any skin care questions you may have.
