Following pregnancy, many women find that their bodies have gone through so many changes that they can hardly recognize themselves. The abdomen and breasts typically fill out, and the skin covering them stretches. This can lead to sagging breasts, extra abdominal skin and possibly abdominal fat that are difficult to rid oneself of using diet and exercise alone. Rather than giving in to these seemingly inevitable changes, women who are done having children may want to consider one or two cosmetic procedures that can return their bodies to normal.
Cosmetic Surgery After Childbirth
Moms may want to consider a breast lift, which can remove the look of sagging, drooping breasts and instead give them newly lifted breasts by removing excess skin and tissue. This procedure may be combined with a breast augmentation for women who have gone down several cup sizes following pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Cosmetic Procedures in Newport Beach
Dr. Tavoussi performs each of these procedures at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center north of our Newport Beach office. They are all same-day procedures with minimal recovery times. While women will need several days to recover, they can typically return to work within a week following these surgeries.
