Women who have had children often deal with stretch marks across the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. And while many creams and ointments promise that they can help prevent stretch marks, the truth is when skin is rapidly pulled taught – such as during pregnancy – stretch marks are often unavoidable. They are also, for the most part, untreatable without surgical intervention.
Tummy tuck surgery can be used to eliminate some stretch marks across the abdomen and hips. A thigh lift may effectively smooth the upper legs and even address some stretch marks across the buttocks. These procedures are often used in combination for a mommy makeover because they are able to address stretch marks along with other issues, such as saggy skin and excess fat deposits, brought about by pregnancy.
Weston plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell personalizes each mommy makeover he performs to match the unique needs of the patient. When you come to our office for a body contouring consultation, Dr. Harrell will listen closely to your concerns and carefully evaluate your problem areas to gain a better understanding of your goals. With these in mind, Dr. Harrell will design a treatment plan that addresses all of your problem areas, helping ensure your final results are pleasing and work to restore confidence, appeal, and ideal definition to your body.
It is not possible to guarantee a complete elimination of your stretch marks, but it is possible to reduce their appearance – sometimes significantly. The best way to learn if a mommy makeover or a stand-alone body contouring procedure will produce the results you desire is through a one-on-one consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon.
