Oh, the joy of motherhood! To the moment a woman finds out that she is expecting up until the day of labor can be exciting and sometimes challenging. But what happens to a woman’s body after she delivered her baby becomes a whole different kind of story. As women who become pregnant with their baby, their bodies go through so many changes internally and externally. As important as health is, so is feeling good on the outside. A woman after delivering her baby may notice that the postpartum body takes a lot of adjusting. But what if you don’t have to just settle for your post-baby body, why not treat yourself to a mommy makeover!
Cosmetic surgery has been booming in the past few decades. Not only is it popular in Hollywood, but the average woman can also afford cosmetic surgery just like the celebrities on the red carpet. Dr. Michael F. Bohley is a Plastic Surgeon who specializes in the reconstruction of the woman’s body in the greater Portland area including The Dalles, Hood River, and Lake Oswego, OR as well as Salem and Vancouver, WA.
During the stages of pregnancy and after can lead a woman to deal with a lot of sleepless nights and extra bags under the eyes and wrinkles by the cause of not getting enough sleep. Dr. Bohley has the ability to recreate a more youthful look during his facelift surgery to reduce facial muscle sagging and lift the skin to make the face appear more youthful.
After so much strain and stretching of the woman’s midsection, this can cause the skin to become loose and sagging. Dr. Bohley’s tummy tuck and liposuction procedures can make the torso area appear more contoured. With a tummy tuck, the underlying tissue is tightened and any excess skin is removed. Liposuction techniques can also be used to remove pockets of stubborn fat and optimize re-contouring.
During the time of pregnancy, a woman may start to discover how different her breasts may appear. Some complain about sagging, asymmetry, or the size of their breasts after pregnancy. Dr. Bohley offers several breast procedure options with the mommy makeover to address these concerns including the breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift. A breast augmentation can restore the size of the breasts using implants, while the breast reduction can address those whose breasts never returned to their natural size. The breast lift can address sagging or optimize the results of another breast procedure.
