A “Mommy Makeover” with Grand Rapids’ Best Plastic Surgeon
The body you had prior to pregnancy can be hard to get back, especially after multiple pregnancies. Women often discover that the weight fluctuations, the breastfeeding, and the stretching of skin that they experience while pregnant and after giving birth contribute to permanent changes with their body. This can take a physical and emotional toll on a woman. When it seems difficult to regain that youthful body you once had, a “mommy makeover” with the best plastic surgeon in Grand Rapids, Dr. Steven Ringler, might be the solution.
What is Included in a “Mommy Makeover”?
While commonly referred to as a post-pregnancy makeover, a “mommy makeover” is meant for any woman that wants to receive multiple plastic surgery procedures to target several areas of the body at once. When determining what procedures you want to pursue, choosing a plastic surgeon that can provide high quality work with unsurpassed patient care is extremely important. A “mommy makeover” typically involves procedures such as:
Breast Augmentation – A surgery to improve the size, shape, proportion, and appearance of the breasts. Women can choose from a variety of breast implant options – silicone gel, saline, or the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift) – A procedure to lift and reshape the breasts. It is designed to help reposition the breasts after childbirth, breastfeeding, weight loss, age, or heredity factors change the position of the breasts.
Breast Reduction – A surgery to reduce the proportion and appearance of the breasts. With overly large and heavy breasts, women often incur other health symptoms such as neck pain, back aches, poor posture, and limitations to their physical activity. Reducing breast size usually offers relief to these symptoms.
Liposuction – A body-contouring surgery to sculpt the body. Excess fat deposits are removed to create smoother and more proportionate curves or lines from various parts of the body such as the chin, abdomen, upper arms, thighs, and hips.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) – A procedure to correct the folds and skin around the waistline. By reducing excess skin and fat, women come out with a flatter, more toned abdomen area.
Mini-Abdominoplasty – A correction of limited excess skin. This procedure is confined to the central portion of the lower abdomen, making the incision typically shorter than with a full tummy tuck.
Choosing a Plastic Surgeon
When choosing a plastic surgeon, it is vital to select someone that can help you achieve the look you desire. As Grand Rapids’ best plastic surgeon, Dr. Ringler takes the time to get to know his patients so he can understand their expectations and learn what they hope to accomplish from a “mommy makeover”. Being a board-certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an IDEAL IMPLANT Premier Surgeon, he has the training and expertise needed to create the best plastic surgery experience possible. Dr. Ringler suggests:
“For any patient considering cosmetic surgery, I think it’s important that they look for a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in aesthetic surgery. I would encourage them to look for someone who’s a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and who has particular area of expertise in the procedure that they’re inquiring about, and someone who they feel comfortable that they can communicate with.”
