Mommy Makeover TorontoDr. Martin Jugenburg
is an experienced Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon who understands the changes a woman's body experiences due to pregnancy, delivery and breast feeding, and is proud to offer Mommy Makeover procedures to his female patients. Dr. Jugenburg is dedicated to helping mothers regain their pre-pregnancy body contours through a variety of cosmetic surgery treatments known as mommy makeover. By combining the various procedures into one treatment, Dr. Jugenburg can create a dramatic cosmetic change through a single surgery, restoring your pre-pregnancy body.
Dr. Jugenburg’s Mommy Makeover helps moms to regain the cute figures that they had prior to having children. Frequently, a Mommy Makeover is a group of cosmetic surgery procedures performed in a single stage. These typically include a combination a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and a breast enhancement with implants (breast augmentation) or a lift. However, a Mommy Makeover can also be staged into multiple surgeries and can include other cosmetic surgical procedures such as breast lifting (mastopexy), breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) and liposuction of the abdomen, hips, thighs and back. Arm lifts, thigh lift, and vaginal rejuvenation such as labiaplasty and vaginal tightening can also be performed. Each Mommy Makeover is clearly unique. Dr. Jugenburg will tailor your Mommy Makeover to your unique needs.
What happens during pregnancy?
Nowhere else are the bodily changes of pregnancy more evident than on a woman’s abdomen. The hormonal changes that women experience during pregnancy are normal and serve mainly to allow the abdominal wall muscles to relax. This frequently creates a separation of the abdominal muscles (rectus diastasis) to accommodate the size of the baby as it grows within a woman’s uterus. Although some women’s abdominal tissues will return to their pre-pregnancy state, most do not and end up having loose, sagging skin, disfiguring stretch marks (striae), bulging lower abdominal muscles or possibly a combination of all of these. Many women undergo C-section delivery or have had previous abdominal surgery, both of which can leave thick, unattractive and painful scars. These problems will not disappear with weight loss or with physical training.
Many mothers are concerned that breastfeeding their baby will destroy the youthful look and shape of their breasts. The truth is breastfeeding alone is not the only culprit. Changes in the breasts actually occur during pregnancy whether or not a mother chooses to breast feed her baby. As the body prepares for lactation (milk production) the milk glands in the breast swell, replacing the other fatty tissue. After childbirth, these glands frequently shrink. What is left is a loose “skin envelope” that lacks enough breast tissue to fill it. A woman’s breasts are frequently less full, tend to sag lower than they did prior to becoming pregnant, and commonly develop stretch marks.
Although most women are able to lose the weight that they have gained during pregnancy, many notice that they have a few stubborn areas of fat that simply “won’t go away;” even with aggressive exercise regimens. Again, many of the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy create permanent defects such as these localized fatty deposits on the hips, back and thighs.
