The physical effects of pregnancy and nursing can result in excess skin or hanging, deflated breasts that cause physical discomfort.
A mommy makeover can give you a firmer, more toned, and more youthful-looking body, often leading to improved self-confidence.
At Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates in Missoula, MT, Dr. Stephen P. Hardy can safely perform your mommy makeover.
For your convenience, we have offices in Helena, and Polson, MT that serve the greater Missoula area.
Why Choose Dr. Hardy for Your Mommy Makeover?
Dr. Hardy believes in helping patients achieve optimal aesthetic results, but he also puts safety first. Although many surgeons will include breast procedures and tummy tuck in one operation, Dr. Hardy feels that combining surgeries creates an unnecessary risk of complications. Each surgery will be performed one at a time, with an appropriate recovery period in between. Our plastic surgeon will create an individualized cosmetic treatment plan and schedule for each of our patients.
Dr. Hardy underwent Ivy League training at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Today, he is a board-certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, serving the Missoula area. He has a national reputation for excellence and commitment to patient care and education. He is also a member of prestigious medical organizations, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association.
How Pregnancy Affects Your Figure
Pregnancy often causes irreversible changes to the body. Skin that has been stretched, especially on the belly and breasts, can slacken and sag. Abdominal muscles can weaken and separate, and accumulated fat may stubbornly persist. Diet and exercise are often not enough to overcome these physical changes.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Health conditions that make elective surgery risky or could cause complications with anesthesia need to be ruled out.
No Future Pregnancy Plans
Ideal candidates should not be planning to have more children, as it could reverse the effects of treatment.
Near or at Your Ideal Weight
Patients should be near or at their ideal weight so we can remove the appropriate amount of skin and achieve the best long-term results.
Candidates also need to have realistic expectations and a thorough understanding of the time it will take to accomplish their aesthetic goals.
