Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover Richmond, VA - Breast Implants Tummy Tuck Richmond & Charlottesville VA
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Matthew G. Stanwix, MD

The process of pregnancy and childbirth is one of the most wonderful experiences that a female will undergo in her life.  Children are truly a blessing and bring great happiness to everyone.  However, pregnancy can affect the female body in many ways.  Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Matthew Stanwix at Stanwix Plastic Surgery fully understands and has studied the physiologic and anatomic changes that happen with pregnancy through childbirth.  He specializes in advanced cosmetic surgery of the face, breasts, and body to help reverse these changes in Richmond & Charlottesville VA.  Dr.  Stanwix combines many of these procedures during one surgical period.  This mommy makeover surgery will have you back into the shape and image that you deserve and used to have.

As a woman moves through pregnancy, the abdominal muscles often separate, leaving a wide space between the muscles.  This allows the internal organs to bulge through, while decreasing your core strength.  Have you found that you have a tougher time performing core exercise in the gym or during yoga or pilates classes?  This is because the muscles you have are longer and bowed to the side.  Dr. Stanwix  specializes in advanced techniques to place these muscles back into their normal position during a tummy tuck.  Dr. Stanwix at Stanwix Plastic Surgery may even mention to you that you are a candidate for a mini-tummy tuck during your mommy makeover.  You may have noticed that you also have some excess skin or stretch marks that are an unsightly sequlae of pregnancy.  Through his specialized tummy tuck in Richmond & Charlottesville VA, Dr. Stanwix will remove your excess skin, tighten your muscle, and give you a flattened belly that you once had.

Hormones that circulate throughout pregnancy also cause women to naturally deposit fat in the hips and buttocks.  Did you notice that you now carry around more fatty deposits in your hips and love handles? Are you missing the curves and hip definition you once had?  These areas are notorious for being stubborn and persist despite strenuous exercise regimens and aggressive dieting.  Dr. Stanwix of Stanwix Plastic Surgery often performs minimally invasive liposuction techniques to remove the stubborn fat and tissue in your hips during a mommy makeover.  His advanced techniques in liposuction will give your body the shape and curves that you deserve.

In addition to the body and abdominal problems that result from pregnancy, you may find that breastfeeding has really made changes on your body, especially your breasts.  Droopy or sagging breasts, as well as deflated breasts often result from the childbearing years.  Advanced breast surgery by Dr. Stanwix at Stanwix Plastic Surgery addresses the problems that result from low volume and sagging breasts.  Are you unhappy with the volume of your breasts?  Do you not like the droopy shape of your breasts?  Or do you dislike both of these features?  Dr. Stanwix is an expert in breast surgery as evidenced by his results, experience, training at the number one hospital, his numerous publications  on the subject and national & international presentations on breast surgery.  Dr. Stanwix performs the latest and cutting edge breast enhancement or breast lift surgical techniques.  Mommy makeovers almost always include a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast augmentation mastopexy (lift and implant).  Dr. Stanwix will help you in deciding which one is best for your and your desires.  Through Dr. Stanwix' individualized approach, he will discuss with you the best surgical procedures suited for you.  Call Dr. Stanwix today to schedule an appointment to discuss your life changing mommy makeover.
