San Francisco Mommy Makeover
Following pregnancy, many women find themselves with loose hanging skin, excess fat, and deflated breasts. Even with diet and exercise these problems can be irreversible. In order to regain a slender figure after childbirth, many women choose to undergo a combination of body contouring procedures, which is commonly termed “Mommy Makeover Surgery.” Joseph A. Mele, MD, FACS is a San Francisco Mommy Makeover surgeon who can skillfully perform a series of plastic surgery procedures designed to help you regain a sculpted, better-toned body.
If you are frustrated with stubborn fat deposits, Walnut Creek Mommy Makeover surgeon, Dr. Mele, will attentively listen to your needs in order to create an individualized surgery plan. At the San Francisco Bay Area practice of Dr. Mele, he and his staff will strive to make you feel comfortable.
Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery
In order to address specific areas, Dr. Mele can combine breast and body procedures to help you achieve your individual goals.
If your breasts are sagging and have lost volume, he can perform a breast lift (“mastopexy”) in order to elevate and reshape the breasts. For added volume, Dr. Mele may recommend a breast augmentation (“augmentation mammaplasty”), which involves the insertion of saline or silicone gel breast implants.
In addition, pregnancy can take a toll on the appearance of the abdomen. San Francisco tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Mele can remove excess fat and skin, while tightening the abdominal muscles by performing tummy tuck surgery ("abdominoplasty"). Often, fat removal is performed along with a tummy tuck to sculpt the overall contours of the abdomen and flanks. He can also perform liposuction (“lipoplasty”) on the thighs, legs, and hips, which are often disproportionally stubborn fatty areas on the woman’s body.
Dr. Mele will evaluate your goals and anatomy before determining which procedures may be combined for your “Mommy Makeover.”
