How to Enhance Your Body Contour After Childbearing

Posted September 24, 2019 in Body Contouring

Having children can be a blessing for many families, but the toll of childbearing on a woman’s body can create appearance issues.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to the following problems:

  • Loose, excess skin in the abdomen
  • Stubborn fat deposits in the midsection
  • Breast asymmetry and sagging
  • Detached abdominal muscles

happy woman and child in the blooming spring garden-img-blogMany women begin to feel uncomfortable with their bodies after having children, which can reduce their self-esteem and have a significant impact on their quality of life.

Fortunately, a Mommy Makeover can improve areas affected by pregnancy and childbirth to dramatically or subtly transform the body.

These transformations can return moms to their pre-baby body, restoring their body shape and improving their self-image.

Dr. Messa practices in Weston, Florida, and offers many body contouring procedures to help you enhance your body after childbirth.

What Are My Options?

Mommy Makeover surgery can significantly improve your appearance by addressing many of your bodily concerns after having a child.

By combining multiple procedures into one operation, you can:

  • Achieve your ideal body contour
  • Address several concerns at once
  • Only undergo anesthesia only once
  • Reduce the cost of numerous surgeries
  • Shorten healing time and eliminate the need for multiple recoveries

MommyMakeoverPatient01What Is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover surgery can include procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, and liposuction to correct multiple areas simultaneously.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery removes excess fat and skin around the stomach region to provide a thinner torso.

If abdominal muscles have detached or weakened after pregnancy, they can be tightened and sutured closer together for more defined, slimmer abs.

Breast Augmentation

When the breasts lose volume, breast augmentation can restore the size, shape, and projection of your breasts.

Breast implants come in many sizes, textures, and shapes. They can also be placed above or below your pectoral (chest) muscles for varying results, making breast augmentation fully customizable.

Breast Lift

A breast lift can raise the breasts higher on the chest and correct nipple and breast asymmetry. Many women combine a breast lift with breast augmentation when having their breasts done.


When fat deposits appear on the body, liposuction is designed to reduce localized fatty tissue by removing it through a thin, small suctioning tube called a cannula.

The most common areas for liposuction include the back, arms, thighs, stomach, and buttocks.

Although most mothers would like to regain a slender contour quickly, not everyone is lucky enough to immediately bounce back to their pre-pregnancy weight.

When natural forms of weight loss and body shaping are not producing results, you may need a surgical plan to obtain your goals.

Mommy Makeover surgery can help you rejuvenate your post-pregnancy body.

Sagging, deflated breasts can be corrected with breast lift surgery and breast augmentation.

The appearance of a protruding abdomen and excess fat may be diminished with a tummy tuck and liposuction.

Based on your anatomy, individual needs, and preferences, a qualified plastic surgeon can implement a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
