Mommy Makeover, Dr. Chhatre Kansas City Plastic Surgeon

Posted on Jul 30, 2012 by Keri Eichhorn

Let's be honest, we all love our children, but what those precious babies can do to our bodies is a completely different story!  Diet and exercise can put new moms on the right path to achieve their goals of their pre-baby body, however, pregnancy is a traumatic experience on the body and there are some changes that eating healthy and exercising won't help.   Dr. Matt Chhatre, Kansas City's best plastic surgeon works with many mom's to help them achieve their esthetic goals after giving birth.  If during pregnancy there is a lot of weight gain, to be a good candidate for any cosmetic procedure, patients will need to be within about 20 Ibs of their ideal body weight prior to surgery. 

There are several procedures that Kansas City, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Matt Chhatre offers for post pregnancy mommy makeovers.  Some women may need just one procedure where others may need several, which all depends on each persons specific desires. The areas most often affected by pregnancy are mainly the abdomen and breasts. Abdominoplasty, Breast Augmentation,  Breast Lift and Liposuction are the procedures mainly used in the mommy makeover procedure. 

The abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can remove excess stretched skin while tightening lax muscles back into place. The breast can become smaller and saggy after pregnancy and breast feeding, doing either a breast lift or a combination of a breast lift as well as breast implant can bring them back to their youthful position.  Liposuction is great additional surgery for body contouring to remove excess fat from hard to lose areas that simple dieting and exercise won't touch.
