New Hampshire Plastic Surgeon Responds to Frequently Asked Questions about Mommy Makeover Procedures
Dr. Richard Zeff explains how mommy makeover surgery is a combination of procedures designed to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure. He also details candidacy requirements and typical costs.
Stratham, NH — Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding often take a significant aesthetic toll on the body, explains Dr. Richard Zeff. The New Hampshire plastic surgeon indicates that mommy makeover surgery can help turn back the clock and restore a woman’s figure after having children. This operation is actually a combination of procedures, which can be customized to suit the anatomic indicators and expressed goals of the patient. To help individuals determine if this technique may be right for them, Dr. Zeff answers some of the most common questions about mommy makeover treatment.
Dr. Zeff says most patients initially want to better understand the benefits of a mommy makeover. At his practice, Dr. Zeff offers a customized version that can include procedures such as breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and other options. He explains that these treatments can individually address the most common concerns that occur as a result of pregnancy and raising children. Tummy tuck surgery can tighten stomach muscles and eliminate excess skin that can occur after weight gain and loss. Liposuction can reduce pockets of fatty tissue from virtually any area of the body. Breast lift can enhance the fullness, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. A breast lift procedure can also be performed with breast implants to replace lost breast volume. Dr. Zeff adds that, if the patient desires it, he can perform non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in addition to the body contouring techniques to provide an even more comprehensive makeover. He says mommy makeover treatments are custom-designed to suit each patient’s individual goals. They can also be staged over a series of appointments or performed in a single procedure, depending on the patient’s needs.
To cover the cost of multiple cosmetic procedures, Dr. Zeff says patients may wish to consider plastic surgery financing options such as CareCredit®. This organization, he explains, offers affordable payment plans for qualified applicants. Before planning the budget, however, he advises women to speak with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if mommy makeover is right for their needs and goals. Dr. Zeff says individuals should be in good general health, non-smokers, and able to take off the necessary time from work and daily routines to recover.
The most important piece of information to remember, Dr. Zeff notes, is that mommy makeover treatment is designed to help mothers feel confident and satisfied with their bodies. He emphasizes that mothers often make a number of sacrifices to bring children into the world and raise them, and these women deserve to feel beautiful inside and out. Mommy makeover, he indicates, can be an excellent way to achieve this goal.
