Motherhood is strenuous on a woman’s body. From stretch-marked skin that has trouble retracting, to permanent tears in the muscle walls – tummies never quite look the same after pregnancy. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) includes sewing the developed gaps in between the muscle walls and pulling the skin taught allowing for a perfect-looking abdominal area.
Tummies aren’t the only areas that can be challenged during the transition to motherhood. Breasts are also stretched during pregnancy and more so in those that breastfeed. After hormones return to normal and breastfeeding stops, the breasts often sag. Breast Lift/Augmentation is another popular procedure for moms looking to regain their pre-motherhood beauty. As a mother, Dr. Tenley Lawton knows better than most Orange County Plastic Surgeons, the emotional and deeply personal feelings many moms have about their bodies after child birth. Specializing in Mommy Makeovers in Newport Beach, she is the leading Orange County Cosmetic Surgeon focusing on breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, and injectables such as Botox and Juvederm.
“As a mother of two young children, I know what motherhood can do to a woman’s body. During pregnancy, a woman’s body is stretch and taxed in ways that can have lasting effects. Some of my most rewarding patients are mothers who have bravely given everything up for their children and now seeking to gain back some of their self-confidence. Whether a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction or simply some botox or filler, the change I see in these mother’s self-esteem is immediate and remarkable.”
