One For The Moms

Young mothers are finding their bodies changed in unexpected ways. Even after weight loss, sit-ups, & yoga, the skin is still loose and the body has yet to return to its rightful form. But surgeons like Dr. Christine Hamori offer a combination of procedures that at once address the breasts and tummies of new mothers. The Mommy Makeover

Post-Pregnancy Challenges

Mommy makeoverEverything stretches, skin loosens, and breasts are milked. These changes are sometimes difficult to overcome if not seemingly impossible. Dr. Hamori, an ivy league-trained and board-certified plastic surgeon from Boston, Massachusetts, allows many young mothers to reclaim their shape and vitality in a single surgery — combining the tummy tuck with a breast augmentation.

The New Tummy Tuck

Advancements in technique are revolutionizing the healing and recovery phases. A new method called progressive tension has completely eliminated the need for post-surgery draining tubes typically associated with tummy tucks. This technique also allows surgeons to better engage the natural elasticity of the skin for optimal contouring along the abdominal wall and around the waist. Surgeries are increasingly less invasive while simultaneously employing the natural strengths of the body. Working with the tendencies of the body, plastic surgeons tap into a more comprehensive healing that inevitably shortens recovery.

Post-Op

Tummy tucks and breast augmentations deal with areas surrounded by muscle. This means patients can expect to experience some tightness and soreness. However, surgeons now use Exparel, an effective, long-lasting numbing agent injected directly into affected areas. And this single injection can eliminate the need for narcotics.

 No more tubes, no more pills.

After six to eight weeks, they’re bikini ready and feeling confidently themselves. Dr. Hamori sees women return to her office with rejuvenated youth & vigor. Lighting up rooms, revitalizing wardrobes; a lost grace returns.
