Ready For Your Ultimate Spring & Summer Body?

As spring (and the warm weather) come rolling in, it’s time to shed the baggy sweatpants, heavy sweaters, and thick winter coats. For many people, however, the warm weather-and less clothing-means heightened anxiety. While winter provides ample opportunity to cover up the parts of your body you deem substandard, those opportunities are few and far between in spring. Fortunately, DeLuca Plastic Surgery has you covered!

Let’s take a look at some of the more popular procedures to help you appreciate the warm weather and show some skin with confidence!

Mommy Makeovers Are Perfect For Spring!

Having a child changes everything-including the shape of your body. Between pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, the body undergoes some serious stress. While diet and exercise can minimize weight gain, the body won’t look the same as it did before becoming a mom. The surgeons at DeLuca Plastic Surgery can help you regain your confidence-and body-with a mommy makeover!

A mommy makeover is a series of procedures aimed at helping mothers regain their pre-birth bodies. There is no “one-size-fits-all” mommy makeover procedure. Instead, your surgeon will work with you to develop a customized program targeting the areas where you most need help!

The most important thing to note about a mommy makeover is that it’s not for women who plan to have children again. Additional pregnancies can reverse or undo the work done during a mommy makeover. Finally, while recovery time depends on the nature of the procedures performed, patients can expect to see optimal results with a full recovery in a few weeks, on average. That means if you plan your mommy makeover now, you’ll have the body you want for spring and summer!

Let’s take a look at some of the procedures that make up a mommy makeover. 

Procedures that Make Up a Mommy Makeover

Tummy Tuck: the area arguably most affected throughout pregnancy and childbirth. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, sculpts and tightens the midsection by removing excess skin and tissue to return the body to its pre-baby shape. Patients achieve a full recovery in about two weeks, on average. 

Liposuction: For patients who put on excess weight during pregnancy, liposuction may be the answer. As the standard for removing excess fat, liposuction can target any and all problem areas, including the abdomen, arms, legs, and neck. Patients achieve a full recovery in between two to four weeks, on average. 

Breast Lift/Reduction/Augmentation: Between pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts enlarge and then return to “normal” size, which can lead to significant volume loss and sagging. Depending on your individual concerns, your surgeon can help you achieve your pre-baby breasts or the breasts of your dreams! Full recovery time is typically around four weeks but depends on the specifics of your procedure. 

Body Contouring: While the breasts and abdomen are the areas most affected throughout pregnancy, a mommy makeover can help reshape any part of the body by eliminating excess skin and fat, and contouring the overall shape of the area in question. Full recovery time depends on the area of the body.
