Motherhood is among a woman’s greatest joys in life, but no matter how happy she is with her newly expanded family, she may not be thrilled with the changes in her figure. Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can alter the shape and size of the breasts, distort the lower body, and result in an acceleration in the signs of aging.
What are the risks associated with a mommy makeover?
Risks of a mommy makeover include infection, bleeding, anesthesia risks, hematoma, temporary numbness, scarring, poor wound healing, and poor cosmetic results. Breast surgery carries with it the risk of capsular contracture and implant rupture.
Can I have more children after a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover does not affect your ability to birth additional children. However, another pregnancy can compromise your aesthetic results, which is why Dr. Alizadeh strongly suggests that you postpone your mommy makeover if you expect to get pregnant again within the next few years. If you do have a mommy makeover and then get pregnant in the future, revision procedures can be performed to help you maintain your figure.
Will I lose sensation in my nipples after the breast lift?
If you are concerned about losing sensation in your nipples, be sure to discuss it with Dr. Alizadeh at your consultation. He can adjust his technique to conform with your wishes, choosing incisions that do not disturb the nipple-areolar complex.
