Sacramento, California (PRWEB) March 29, 2008
Mothers throughout California and in Sacramento are exploring plastic surgery options to improve how they look and feel. Dr. Scott Green, a board-certified plastic surgeon offering a full range of plastic surgery in Sacramento, has seen a significant up-tick in the number of moms coming to his practice to learn more about their cosmetic surgery options.
The growing number of mothers choosing plastic surgery has led to a new phrase being developed: "Mommy Makeover." While the term has no precise definition, the Mommy Makeovers Dr. Green performs in Sacramento generally combine tummy tucks with breast augmentation, liposuction, or other plastic surgery procedures to help moms get their bodies back on track after pregnancy. Every Mommy Makeover Dr. Green performs is custom-tailored to the needs of his patients.
"Motherhood is a special, personal experience, with every woman having different goals for themselves and their families," says Dr. Green. "Many mothers feel it's important for them to look their best, which helps them feel their best in interactions with their children and their partner. Cosmetic surgery is a good option for many moms who are finding it difficult to restore the look of their body after pregnancy."
Pregnancy causes changes throughout a woman's body, but the most dramatic changes occur in the abdominal area. Skin, muscle, and other tissue must stretch to accommodate a growing child, and after childbirth, some of this tissue may not "bounce back" fully, leaving mothers with a flabby and stretched stomach appearance. "No amount of crunches and dieting will help a woman whose abdominal muscles have stretched out to fully restore her pre-pregnancy look," adds Dr. Green. "Many moms in Sacramento are choosing tummy tucks at my practice to tighten the abdominal muscles and remove excess fat and skin."
But Mommy Makeovers go beyond improving the appearance of the midsection. Many mothers also are disappointed with the changes they've seen in their breasts after pregnancy, and talk with Dr. Green about a breast lift or breast augmentation in Sacramento. Breast lift does just what it says, elevating the breasts to a more youthful position, while breast augmentation can restore lost fullness or create a more voluptuous look than a woman has ever enjoyed previously. These procedures are often performed together for a more comprehensive makeover.
"Breast surgery, when combined with other procedures to restore a woman's pre-pregnancy figure, can make a huge difference in how a mother sees herself and how confident she feels in her own skin," adds Dr. Green. "During the consultation, every one of my Mommy Makeover patients receives a detailed assessment of the procedures that will help them, and I work closely with each patient to find a mix of procedures that will provide the greatest benefit."
Dr. Green's primary concerns during a Mommy Makeover procedure are patient comfort and safety. "I am dedicated to maximizing safety and minimizing recovery time for women undergoing Mommy Makeovers," adds Dr. Green. "I know it's a huge sacrifice to be away from your family and take a few weeks before you're back to your old self. I strive to make the experience an overwhelmingly positive one. By combining such procedures as tummy tucks and breast augmentation in Sacramento, my patients are able to enjoy their looks as they enjoy raising their families."
