Mommy Makeover Chicago
Pregnancy leads to many physical changes that may not be easily restored after childbirth even through exercise and dieting. After gaining at least 25 to 30 pounds during pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women lose the youthful and attractive body shape they once had. A mommy makeover surgery performed by Chicago cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gikas is designed to help postpartum women restore their pre-pregnancy figure.
Mommy Makeover Surgery with Dr. Gikas
Mommy makeover surgery is an individually tailored cosmetic treatment comprised of several plastic surgery procedures, which are determined by Dr. Gikas based on the patient’s post-pregnancy physical changes, aesthetic desires, body anatomy and lifestyle. In most cases, Dr. Gikas’ patients undergo a combination of the following procedures:
Breast lift and/or breast augmentation surgery helps Chicago mommy makeover patients address post-pregnancy breast issues, including sagging breasts, deflated (“pancake”) breasts and uneven breasts. Breast lift/breast augmentation combination surgery can restore the natural beauty and attractiveness of the breasts.
Tummy tuck surgery tightens the abdominal wall and muscles, which are often stretched out as a result of childbearing. In addition, the procedure eliminates excess abdominal fat and skin.
Liposuction surgery is performed on any additional body areas where stubborn fat deposits have accumulated, including:
- Flanks (love-handles)
- Lower back
Mommy Makeover Surgery Candidacy
The best candidates for mommy makeover surgery in Chicago are women who:
- Are unsatisfied with their physical appearance following pregnancy
- Have been unsuccessful in restoring their figure through diet and exercise
- Do not plan to have more children
- Have achieved a stable weight following pregnancy
- Are finished breastfeeding
During a consultation appointment, Dr. Gikas will evaluate and discuss additional factors that may determine your candidacy for mommy makeover surgery.
Mommy makeover surgery is a highly individualized procedure; therefore, the preoperative preparations, the complexity of the procedure, the recovery time and the mommy makeover surgery costs are determined on a case-by-case basis following an initial consultation with Dr. Gikas.
