Pregnancy and childbirth are both amazing experiences—there’s truly nothing like bringing new life into the world. However, many women in Palm Harbor And Clearwater are unhappy with the way their bodies look after they’ve finished having children, which is why so many visit Dr. Moraitis to discuss the mommy makeover procedure. This combination plastic surgery can greatly improve many of the effects of pregnancy, such as extra abdominal skin, sagging and deflated breasts, and hips that just won’t slim down—regardless of the diet or exercise program.
But one of the most frustrating leftovers of pregnancy, and one that Dr. Moraitis is often asked about during his mommy makeover consultations, are stretch marks. Stretch marks occur when the skin is unable to adequately respond to rapid growth. As the skin expands, small tears occur in the deep layers of the skin. Many times, stretch marks start out as raised streaks that can be purple, red, or brown in color. Eventually, they will often fade to a silvery-white color and appear glossy.
Women who visit Dr. Moraitis to discuss the mommy makeover procedure, do so in hopes that he can help them improve the appearance of their stretch marks, but can this procedure actually help?
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
As we mentioned above, pregnancy can cause a woman’s body to change in ways that aren’t necessarily appreciated. A mommy makeover with Palm Harbor And Clearwater’s Dr. Moraitis can greatly improve many of the unwanted problems that remain after childbirth. Depending on your specific needs, he can perform any combination of the following procedures during one surgical event:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Breast reduction
- Nipple and areola reduction
- Butt lift
Because most Palm Harbor And Clearwater women experience stretch marks in their abdominal area, their hope is that a tummy tuck will be the answer to their problems, and they’ll be able to have a flawless tummy again. The good news is that Dr. Moraitis is able to remove stretch marks for most of his mommy makeover patients who choose a full tummy tuck. This procedure addresses lax skin and muscles from the rib cage down, which is where most Tampa women have pregnancy stretch marks.
