May is all about Mother’s and Mommy Makeovers



May is all about Mother’s and Mommy Makeovers

Being a mother is one of the most rewarding roles in the world, but let’s face it, it takes a toll on the body. The changes our body goes through during pregnancy, the physical shifts made to skin and muscles in the core, and then, on the big day – (Delivery Day) – we invite a whole new host of challenges. Yes, the body goes through a lot and it does not always bounce right back.

And while that bundle of joy is certainly worth it all,  you may be left with a few “side effects” that are not quite as delightful.  We are talking about excess skin, stress incontinence, over extended muscles (Rectus diastasis) and a weakened & vulnerable core.

It’s completely okay to need a little help after baby. No matter how many years “after baby” you decide to act.  At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we are big fans of Mommy Makeovers because we have seen the wonders they can do for our patients.

Also called an abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck procedure removes excess skin from the abdomen area and tightens up muscles to get you back to your pre-baby shape. This can give you a toned, more defined stomach and can even help eliminate stretch marks.

Physical Improvements

Let’s start with the physical improvements. A Tummy Tuck will flatten your stomach and streamline your core.  In fact, one of the main goals is to make the stomach area flatter and smaller. By removing the excess fat and skin, and then tightening the stomach muscles, your body will reveal a smaller waistline and a smoother stomach.

Overall Benefits to Your Health and Well-Being.

Next, we have the overall benefits to your health and well-being. The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, and the physical results can be dramatic. But looking beyond the aesthetics, a tummy tuck can also improve your overall health and well-being. In fact, some say the health benefits may outweigh the cosmetic.

Tummy tucks can restore a weakened and vulnerable core, strengthen your abdominal muscles, and improve your overall flexibility. In addition, stronger abdominal muscles can relieve lower back pain and improve posture.  And there’s more … by strengthening your abdominal muscles, you can also help eliminate stress on the stomach muscles that can lead to a ventral hernia.

Improving Your Self-Confidence.

Don’t discredit the power of self-confidence. Getting back to YOU after baby is equally important and should be one of your priorities. When your body looks good, you feel good. When your body is strong, you feel strong.  This leads to a better everything. A better outlook. A better attitude. A better you.

Thermiva – Improving Feminine Health.

 We’d like to wrap up with THERMIVA, another amazing technology for mommy makeovers when it comes to improving feminine health. Childbirth, menopause, natural aging… we all know what it does to our “down-there”  lady parts.

ThermiVa helps women treat low libido, vaginal laxity, vaginal/vulvar dryness, mild to moderate stress incontinence, bladder leakage and sexual or orgasmic dysfunction, without surgery. This non-invasive treatment uses temperature-controlled, radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat internal and external vaginal tissues to stimulate and regenerate your body’s own collagen.

Mommy Makeovers, Tummy Tucks and Thermiva can address a multitude of challenges that arrive post-baby, and even just as we age.  If you are ready to move forward, come in today for a consult with Dr. Pisarski.  We’ll take good care of you.
