Tummy Tuck, Body Lift, & Breast Lift
A women’s guide to reversing the physical changes of childbearing through plastic and reconstructive surgery.
While the birth of a child is considered the greatest joy a couple can share, the burden of pregnancy and delivery is solely that of the woman. The physical and hormonal alterations that childbearing bring often lead to unwanted body changes. Even more frustrating is that many of these physical changes are resistant to diet and exercise. Each year millions of mothers undergo plastic surgical procedures to restore and enhance their appearance following childbearing.
All women desire a beautiful, sensual, feminine figure. This often is difficult to achieve due to the often damaging physical changes that childbearing brings. Countless women encounter the frustrating experience that occurs when dedicated workouts and calorie-counting fails to lead to a significant improvement. Advanced liposuction and body contouring techniques are designed to address these diet and exercise resistant areas to achieve permanent, pleasing results in a single procedure.
Our practice utilizes the latest technological advances called “ultrasonic liposelection” to remove stubborn fatty deposits to create a smooth slimmer body contour. Tiny incisions allow a narrow wand to send a gentle ultrasonic wave that melts unwanted fat. The melted fat is then suctioned away revealing a permanent, improved feminine contour in about 90 minutes, sometimes under local anesthesia, with a few days of recovery.
This procedure removes the excess abdominal skin left behind after delivery or significant weight loss. Typically the abdominal wall muscles are tightened and fat deposits are removed through advanced liposuction during the procedure with an overnight hospital stay. A horizontal lower abdominal incision, just above the pubic area, removing stretch marks and prior c-section scars, is utilized to conceal the incision in undergarments and bikinis. Usual return to light activities with 8 – 12 days and to the gym in about 3 to 4 weeks.
One of the defining characteristics of beauty, femininity and sexuality of the female figure is a woman’s breast. The effects of pregnancy and breast feeding often lead to a desire for women to create a more pleasing bust line.
Breast Augmentation (Enlargement)

Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
