This 30 year-old woman was unhappy with some of the most obvious ways childbirth had affected her body. Despite her efforts to regain her pre-baby body, she was still dissatisfied with the appearance of her mid-abdominal area as well as her flat-looking breasts. She had recently heard of "mommy makeover" cosmetic surgery and was curious to know more, so she scheduled a consultation with Dr. Chang to discuss breast augmentation in Baltimore, Maryland as well as a tummy tuck procedure. After consulting with Dr. Chang this patient decided that a mommy makeover was the right option for her.
Mommy makeover procedures correct some of the unwanted changes that typically affect a woman's body as a result of childbirth. These procedures may address multiple areas, and may include both surgical and nonsurgical treatments depending on the patient's goals and body shape. For this patient's mommy makeover, Dr. Chang performed a breast augmentation to restore the volume in her sagging breasts. He also performed a mini tummy tuck to shape her lower abdomen, a common problem area for new moms struggling to maintain their pre-baby shape.
Four months after her Baltimore plastic surgery, this patient looks and feels more like her old self. Her natural-looking breast augmentation results restore her lost volume, and her mini tummy tuck shrunk her stomach back to its pre-baby shape.
Recovery from a mommy makeover procedure can take several weeks or months, depending upon the patient's physical condition and the extent of her procedures. Patients who undergo breast enhancement and a mini tummy tuck without additional procedures can typically resume normal activities after two weeks.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
