The Mommy Makeover
Traditional Tummy Tuck is performed with an incision horizontally across the bikini line. The length of the incision is based on how much excess skin there is and contouring. The incision is kept low and hidden by should be hidden by underwear. The mons area is also lifted with this technique and belly button is transposed. The rectus or 6 pack muscles are plicated or tightened like a corset and the excess skin and fat is removed. Liposuction may combined with a tummy tuck and usually performed on the sides or flank areas.
Breast lift may be needed for breasts that are sagging or demonstrate ptosis. The lift may be performed alone or with the addition of breast implants. A procedure known as augmentation mastopexy. The implants add more upper pole fullness and larger cup sizes if desired. Breast augmentation can be performed with implants or fat if no lifting is required.
Like most moms, I had some post-pregnancy image issues that needed some professional attention. After doing a thorough research and interview process, I met with Dr. Parikh and his staff. My first impression was I had found my doctor and didn’t need to search any further. I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Parikh’s practical and down-to-earth style. His first rule was safety first and then proceeded to provide a most appropriate and sound plan for my specific needs. After my procedures, I was extremely satisfied with the results. I look terrific and feel great only weeks post-surgery. Dr. Parikh is an expert in facial body plastic surgery and his attention to detail, safety, and the needs of each patient is what makes him stand out from the others. If you have image issues like I did, I would highly recommend that you seek a consultation with him and meet his very talented and professional staff ASAP.V.Z.
