Dr. Thomas Lintner is helping women who have recently had children address the many body changes that can be brought on by pregnancy with a combination of treatment options. With the Mommy Makeover, moms can restore their pre-pregnancy figures and boost their self-esteem. One patient writes:
"After having my third child in three years, I knew it was time to do something for myself.
Before I had children, I had always considered myself to be relatively active, I enjoyed boating, running, skiing and working out. After each pregnancy, I managed to take the weight off, but my body looked different. After my last pregnancy I realized, even with losing the weight and being relatively active, my body was not returning to ‘pre-baby” shape. I was at a plateau. It was then; I realized it was time to do something for myself. I deserved to have my body back, feel good about myself and look good in my clothes and a bathing suit.
I knew I needed to set up consultations with as many plastic surgeons as possible - it was my body and I wanted it to look natural with the best results. After spending almost a year of “interviewing” plastic surgeons around the Atlanta area, the consensus was I needed a breast augmentation and a breast lift, as well as a tummy tuck. I felt comfortable with the breast augmentation and lift, not a tummy tuck. I was too young and didn’t want the downtime, with three small children.
It wasn’t until I visited Dr. Thomas Lintner; he suggested a “panniculectomy with mini-abdominoplasty.” I had never heard of the procedure from any of the other physicians I met with. The procedure involved removing the excess skin around my stomach and making my stomach look “fit”, like it did years before I had children.
I can honestly say it was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I am so glad I had the opportunity to have my body back again. I feel great in my clothes, in a bathing suit, and best of all, I feel good about myself. The results were amazing, and very natural.
It has been three years since my procedures with Dr. Lintner and not a day goes by that I don’t think, ’I am so glad I had this done.’ "
Liposuction is often one of the most requested procedures for inclusion in a Mommy Makeover. This option targets pockets of fat in a variety of body areas that have accumulated during or after pregnancy. Dr. Lintner can remove these fat pockets for a more contoured appearance.
After pregnancy and breast feeding, many women notice significant changes in the appearance of the breasts. Dr. Lintner can include a breast lift with a Mommy Makeover to reposition the nipple and create a more natural pre-pregnancy shape to the breast. Most patients opt for a lift with an implant for a fuller look.
In addition to a breast lift, Dr. Tom Lintner can add FDA-approved silicone breast implants to restore "perkiness" and fullness to the breast. Changes with breastfeeding cause the breast to lose volume and augmentation brings back better proportion to the overall body frame. Silicone breast implants offer new mothers a natural-looking and natural-feeling option to create larger, more sensual breasts that conform to their own individual appearance goals.
During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are stretched and pulled apart, adding to the appearance of laxity caused by the stretching of skin in the midsection. Rigorous diet and exercise may not be able to get rid of the excess. There are several abdominal procedures that we can do to provide the flat, pre-baby tummy. Everything from just removing excess skin to partial muscle tightening to a full tummy tuck. Dr. Lintner can help you make the best decision about which procedure works best for your goals.
As part of a Mommy Makeover, Dr. Tom Lintner can include a range of skin care and rejuvenation treatments that can restore the skin and eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging and exhaustion. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, chemical peels, and other options, new moms can renew their skin for a youthful, healthy and refreshed sheen.
Recovery times for a Mommy Makeover will depend on the number of treatments and the types of procedures you undergo. Dr. Lintner will discuss all aspects of procedures with you, and give you all the information you need before you make your decision.
