Mom Makeover in Tampa, Palm Harbor, Clearwater & Largo, FL
“I would have done it years ago, had I known how amazing I could look.”
Morning sickness, weight gain, fatigue, skin changes…. Pregnancy can make you feel like your body no longer belongs to you. But as a mommy-to-be, you took it all in stride.
Now your life has returned to normal and your “little ones” are growing fast. But has your body bounced back to pre-baby form? Unfortunately, for many of Dr. Moraitis’ patients in Tampa and Clearwater, FL, they find that pregnancy has taken some toll on their body; most significantly their breasts and abdomen.
If this sound like you, you may benefit from Dr. Moraitis’ Mommy Makeover to help you look and feel your best!
Why a Mommy Makeover?
Palm Harbor Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. isidoros Moraitis, understands that having children changes a woman’s life in so many ways. One change that most moms in Largo are not so excited about is the effects on their body from pregnancy and breast feeding. Often, getting their pre-baby body back cannot be obtained through diet or exercise alone.
The changes that take place as a result of pregnancy and breast feeding – the sagging and/or deflated breasts, the flabby tummies, the stubborn pockets of fat – can be very disappointing to any woman who cares about her appearance.
With Dr. Moraitis’ Mommy Makeover in Palm Harbor, you can address those concerns you have with your breasts, abdomen and even thighs and buttocks. The Mommy Makeover utilizes a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to counteract the physical effects of childbearing, helping to restore your pre-baby body and enhance your look and feel as a vibrant mother.
Depending on your individual needs and desires, Mommy Makeovers at Moraitis Plastic Surgery, may include any or all of the following procedures:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Buttock Lift
- Nipple/Areola Reduction
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover in Palm Harbor
It is important to consider certain factors before deciding to have a Mommy Makeover:
Are you done having children? If you intend to have more children, you may decide to wait. Future pregnancies can effect the results of your surgery.
Are you finished breastfeeding? You will need to wait a minimum of 6 months after you stop breastfeeding to undergo any breast-related cosmetic surgery.
Are you at a stable weight? Being at a stable weight prior to proceeding with surgery will help maximize your results.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Following surgery patients may need to wear compression garments. You may also have drains placed to collect any excess fluid depending on your procedures. Any discomfort can be controlled with medication. Since a mommy makeover is a customizable procedure, downtime will vary from patient to patient, though most people can be up and walking in one week. Heavy lifting and rigorous exercise should be avoided for six weeks. It is important to follow Dr. Moraitis’ specific post-op instructions for a safe and fast recovery.
It is important that patients maintain their weight following this procedure as weight fluctuations could compromise results. If you are planning on future pregnancies, it is best to wait on this procedure.
