"Since I had my surgery I've had so many compliments on how great my stomach looks. My results came out phenomenal!!!I haven't worn a bikini in five years and thanks to Dr. Edween and her amazing team I can now do that."
Abdominoplasty: A tummy tuck addresses the loose skin by removing the excess and restores firmness to the abdominal area. Stretch marks, poor elasticity and hanging skin are common concerns addressed by the procedure. A typical incision spans from one hip bone to the opposite hip bone, and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened towards the midline through a corset like suture technique. Prior to surgery you will have the opportunity to view and approve your scar placement so it is well hidden within your patient bikini bottom or underwear line.
Liposuction: During pregnancy weight gain undesirable fat collections occur. Common areas of fat deposit include the abdomen, thighs, hips, neck and back. Lipsuction removes unwanted excess fat deposits and recontours the area of concern. It is important to understand that liposuction is designed sculpt area and remove excess bulges, but will not remove excess skin.
Breast Implants: Breasts are dramatically affected by the hormonal changes brought about through pregnancy and through breast feeding. These changes are manifested though volume loss, deflation and sagging. There are a variety of breast enhancement techniques that can restore the breasts. Most post-pregnancy patients just want to be the same breast size they were before pregnancy or just a little bit bigger. In this case, if you're happy with the position of your breasts but you'd like them to be a little fuller, implants can help restore volume that was lost after having a baby. As long as sagging and drooping are not an issue, implants can help restore breasts to a pre pregnancy fullness.
Breast lift: If your breasts loss volume and are sagging, you may want to consider a breast lift to restore the uplifted pre pregnancy appearance. There are many different types of lift ranging from a more limited incision techniques to a full breast lift.
