Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can change a San Diego woman’s body in unpleasant and unexpected ways. Some San Diego women end their childbearing with smaller, deflated breasts. Others have enlarged breasts that are saggy. And many San Diego women end up with extra fat deposits and stretch marks on their breasts, belly, and thighs, all of which can make them self-conscious and feel unrecognizable in their post-baby bodies. San Diego female plastic surgeon Dr. Kaweski understands these feelings and has even been given the nickname Dr. Mommy Makeover® for her years of experience in helping San Diego women reclaim their bodies and regain their confidence after childbearing. But, what procedures should you consider for your Mommy Makeover? Read on as female plastic surgeon Dr. Kaweski of Aesthetic Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery shares her advice.

Restoring Breasts

Unrecognizable and unflattering breasts are one of the most common complaints that San Diego women who are seeking a Mommy Makeover share with female plastic surgeon Dr. Kaweski. That’s why breast procedures are such a popular component of a Mommy Makeover. When you work with female plastic surgeon Dr. Kaweski, she may perform any one of the following breast procedures, depending on your unique post-baby body needs:

  • Breast Augmentation, to restore volume and shape to breasts that have deflated with pregnancy and childbirth;
  • Breast Reduction, for women who whose breasts have enlarged to an uncomfortable or unflattering volume post-pregnancy;
  • Breast Lift, for women whose breasts are sagging after pregnancy and breastfeeding; and
  • A Combination Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation, to provide the benefits of both procedures to women that have both lost volume and have sagging breasts after childbearing.

Eliminating Unwanted Fat

Weight gain is a healthy part of pregnancy, but for some San Diego women, it can be hard to shed those extra pounds post-baby, no matter how much they diet and exercise. Female plastic surgeon Dr. Kaweski often recommends some liposuction or Smart Lipo as part of any Mommy Makeover process. Whether you have undesirable pockets of fat in your love handles, thighs or stomach, liposuction or Smart Lipo can help you regain your pre-baby contour.

Repairing Abdominal Muscles and Shedding Excess Skin

Pregnancy and childbirth can take both a physiological and cosmetic toll on a San Diego woman’s abdomen. First, it is very common for women to experience separated abdominal muscles after a pregnancy, which can make your belly appear round. Separated abdominal muscles can be re-sewn together during a tummy tuck procedure. Tummy tucks are also effective at getting rid of excess or sagging skin, which is often full of stretch marks.

Adding Extras to Your Mommy Makeover

While most Mommy Makeovers include a breast procedure, liposuction, and a tummy tuck, some San Diego women opt for extras like facial rejuvenation. Whether getting a facelift, a mini facelift, Botox or dermal fillers, these women feel like a better version of themselves after having both body and facial procedures.
