Should I Add Breast Augmentation to My Mommy Makeover?

A single pregnancy can deflate once full and perky breasts. Breast changes are one of the biggest body complaints that women have after pregnancy. Volume loss is very common. Many women notice their breast changes for the first time after they finish breastfeeding. As the milk supply dries up, the breasts shrink to their new-normal size. Many women experience a loss of upper pole fullness, or fullness on the top of the breast.

Breast augmentation is a procedure that places an implant into the breasts, adding volume and enhancing the breast shape. Dr. Sajjadian is one of the best breast surgeons in the area, well known for his ability to create stunning, natural-looking breasts. If you have a loss of volume after pregnancy, breast augmentation is one of the best ways to restore it.

Do I Need a Breast Lift?

Got sagging? If you have breast sagging after pregnancy, you’re not alone. Breast sagging affects most women at some point, commonly after pregnancy. A quick, at-home test called the “Pencil Test” can help you determine if you need a breast lift. Simply place a pencil into the fold under the breast. If the pencils doesn’t fall, you definitely need a lift. If the pencil falls, you may be able to wait on the lift.

During a breast lift the breast tissues are repositioned on the breast and excess skin is removed. A breast lift can be performed on its own or paired with breast augmentation.

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

Mommy tummy is a real problem for women that have had children. Sagging skin and stretched out abdominal muscles are common after pregnancy, resulting in a permanent pooch. If people are congratulating you on your pregnancy, even though you’re not expecting, ask about a tummy tuck. This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, tightens the abdominal muscles, and restores a flattened appearance to the mid-section.

A tummy tuck may be a good addition to your mommy makeover if you have loose, stretched-out skin after pregnancy or weight loss. A tummy tuck may even remove some of your stretch marks (primarily those located below the belly button).

How Do I Know if I Need Liposuction?

Hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause stubborn fat to accumulate in areas like the abdomen, the hips, and the thighs. Liposuction can remove this unwanted fat, contouring and reshaping the body. If you have stubborn fat that just won’t budge, even with diet and exercise, liposuction may be able to help.
