Breast Augmentation

One of the biggest changes in a woman’s body during her pregnancy is the swelling of the breasts as she prepares to breast feed.  After childbirth, when the milk glands shrink, many women find that their breasts are less full and sag.  Breast augmentation involves making a small incision in the skin and placing breast implants, usually made from silicone gel or saline solution, underneath the existing tissue.  The cosmetic surgeon can make the incision either in the creases of the breasts, the circle around the nipples and areolas, or the armpits.  In Chandler breast augmentation can be undertaken by a qualified cosmetic surgeon and is a relatively short operation, less than one hour, and requires relatively short recovery period of two to four weeks.

Tummy Tuck

Losing the weight around the belly can often be achieved through consistent exercise and a healthy diet.  However, for some women, especially those who have gone through more than one pregnancy, this simply isn’t enough.  Tummy tuck procedures can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks, tighten flabby abdominal muscles, and get rid of extra skin and many women now use them after pregnancy.  During a tummy tuck the cosmetic surgeon discards everything below the belly button and pulls everything above it down to the pubic line, consequently tightening the area.  Full recovery takes around six weeks.  Getting a tummy tuck in Chandler, AZ can be completed with a surgeon after any pregnancy, though doctors usually recommend waiting till the final planned pregnancy is complete.
