Can a Mommy Makeover Reduce My Stretch Marks?

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Austin moms that are finished with childbearing and breastfeeding will often focus on getting their bodies back to the way they were before they started family planning. But what often happens is that despite dieting and exercise, many moms find that they still have stubborn areas of fat, loose skin, and unsightly stretch marks on their breasts and stomach–sometimes even on their arms and legs.

A mommy makeover is usually a combination of two or more surgical procedures to address multiple issues that our patients want to address. This can include a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction and others.

What Are Stretch Marks?

It’s important to understand what stretch marks are before we discuss how a mommy makeover can address them. Essentially, stretch marks are tears deep in the skin. With pregnancy, the abdomen can grow so quickly that the top layers of skin doesn’t have time to grow to adjust. These tears are exactly like scars and therefore can’t be removed with topical solutions like creams and lotions.

Stretch Marks and Your Mommy Makeover

Austin moms that have stretch marks can often eliminate them during their mommy makeover. For example, a tummy tuck can often get rid of stretch marks on the abdomen by removing that skin. The same is true with a breast lift. For stretch marks on the arms, an arm lift during the mommy makeover can help with that as well.

If you’re tired of trying to hide your stretch marks and want to get your pre-pregnancy body back, call Dr. Tjelmeland today at (512) 617-7500. Moms always deserve to look and feel their best so contact us today to get started with your mommy makeover.
