Mommy Makeover Manhattan | Mommy Makeover New York CityPost-maternity Body Reshaping (Mommy Makeovers)

Despite your best efforts, your breasts, belly and waistline may not completely recover after you have had a baby. The abdominal (tummy) muscles and skin may become stretched; the breasts may sag or lose volume; the nipples may droop; the waistline may lose its curves as the muscles underneath loosen. Unfortunately, none of these natural changes can be improved with diet and exercise. Dr. Afridi is pleased to provide "mommy makeover" plastic surgery procedures specifically designed to help moms regain their firmer pre-maternity figures.

 


Dr. Afridi's Unique Perspective

Dr. Afridi has an intimate understanding of the changes a woman's body goes through during and after pregnancy. She understands that even if you watch your weight, take your vitamins, exercise, wear a maternity bra 24/7 and follow your obstetrician's advice to the letter, your body will undergo changes that are difficult and sometimes impossible to overcome on your own.

This is where Dr. Afridi's experience and expertise with mommy makeover plastic surgery prove to be invaluable.  A strong understanding of pregnancy and its effects on the body have made her all the more capable of identifying the different areas that need improvement and customizing a surgical treatment plan for each woman. She knows that each woman experiences pregnancy differently, and that there is no "one size fits all" procedure for everyone.

During your consultation, Dr. Afridi will talk with you in depth about what area or areas are concerning you and what the best methods will be to help. She will take the time to listen to what you have to say and to examine your problem area(s) with great attention to detail so that together, you will come up with a plan for surgery that addresses your individual needs and desires with the goal of achieving a realistic outcome.

 


Pregnancy and your Breasts - Post-maternity Breast Rejuvenation

While most moms agree that their breasts become full and attractive during their pregnancy, there is a dramatic variation in the degree the breasts change after having a baby. This tends to have little to do with whether a woman chooses to breastfeed.

For a very fortunate few women, the breasts return to their pre-baby shape and size soon after childbirth. The vast majority of women, however, find that their breasts become "empty-looking," and sometimes the nipples migrate so they're no longer on the fullest part of the breast. This is technically known as ptosis, or drooping. These sagging breasts are often in need of a breast lift or a combination of a breast lift and breast implants.

with a breast lift and augmentation. This patient is a subglandular augmentation mastopexy done in one stage with a 275cc silicone implant and a vertical (lollipop) incision mastopexy.

Some women, on the other hand, experience an enlarging of their breasts during pregnancy that does not decrease after childbirth and breastfeeding. These women may benefit from breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction after pregnancy removes excess tissue in the breasts for a smaller size and more youthful contour.

Pregnancy and your Belly - Post-maternity Belly Tightening

While the breasts undergo significant changes during pregnancy, no other part of the body undergoes as dramatic a process as the abdomen or tummy. Pregnancy stretches the abdominal wall, affecting both the skin and the "six-pack" rectus abdominis muscles underneath. This can result in a spectrum of concerns, including:

  • Losing the waistline
  • Loose, excess skin in the upper and lower abdomen
  • Stretch marks
  • Fat in the lower abdomen
  • In cases of Cesarean sections, a hard, tight scar above the pubic hairline over which the abdominal fat may hang.

Dr. Afridi can treat each of these problems using one or more of a variety of procedures. The precise treatment plan requires a customized surgical approach tailored to each specific patient. For example, women who have no stretch marks and a small amount of excess skin can benefit simply from liposuction, while women with significant skin excess with or without abdominal fat most likely need a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure.

Liposuction after child-bearing re-contours the waistline and removes fat from the lower abdomen that diet and exercise alone cannot reduce.

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) trims excess, sagging post-maternity skin and reduces stretch marks to give Dr. Afridi's patients firmer, younger-looking tummies.
