Although bringing a child into the world is an incredible blessing, it exacts a heavy toll on a woman’s body. After giving birth, you may find that you have areas of stubborn fat deposits and loose, sagging skin. If you choose to breastfeed, you may find that your breasts have lost volume and appear disproportionate. For many women with these issues, plastic surgery is an option. The mommy makeover is a popular choice you can discuss with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Mommy makeovers are ideal for many women because they are customized to each patient’s individual preferences. A mommy makeover doesn’t refer to any one particular plastic surgery procedure; rather, it refers to a set of procedures designed to bring the body back to its pre-pregnancy condition. Another significant benefit of a mommy makeover is the boost to the patient’s self-esteem. These plastic surgery procedures can help you look and feel like a young, energetic mom.
Your plastic surgeon may recommend several different procedures for your mommy makeover, depending on your preferences. A tummy tuck is a common procedure to include because pregnancy tends to leave loose, sagging skin on the abdomen. A tummy tuck eliminates this loose skin and tightens the underlying muscle structure. You might also choose liposuction to address fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Additionally, consider having a breast lift to improve the placement and firmness of your breasts. You may choose to combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation.
Many women are ideal candidates for a mommy makeover; however, only your plastic surgeon can determine if it’s right for you. Disclose your full medical history, including your medical conditions and medications, if applicable. Discuss whether you’re considering having more children in the future. Ideal candidates should also be within the range of their target weight.
If you’ve been struggling to achieve ideal body proportions after pregnancy, schedule an appointment with Plastic Surgery Specialists and ask us about our mommy makeover procedures. Our state-of-the-art plastic surgery practice is conveniently located in Annapolis. Give us a call today at (866) 646-4017 with any questions.

If you’re 30 years old or older, you may have already begun to notice that your skin looks duller than it used to. This is because the rate of skin cell turnover has declined as a result of various factors, including genetics, lifestyle habits, and environmental factors. Microdermabrasion is an effective, safe option for rejuvenating the skin.
As you’ll learn by watching this video presented by PSS MediSpa, microdermabrasion exfoliates the dead skin cells and allows a new cycle of skin cells to be visible. This leaves you with a glowing, radiant complexion.
If you would like to learn more about microdermabrasion, please schedule an appointment with Plastic Surgery Specialists MediSpa by calling (866) 646-4017. In addition to our medispa treatments, our Annapolis practice offers a comprehensive range of plastic surgery treatment options, including liposuction and breast augmentation.

A face lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to restore youthfulness by tightening sagging skin, removing excess fat deposits, and tightening the underlying muscles. Sagging skin is often an issue associated with older individuals because of the effect of gravity on the face over the years. However, many younger people can benefit from having a face lift. In fact, plastic surgeons note that a face lift at a younger age is often more effective.
It’s another common misconception that a face lift only affects the appearance of the face. If you decide to undergo a face lift, your plastic surgeon will also tighten and improve the look of your jowls and neck. Some people choose to combine a face lift with other procedures. For example, if you’re concerned about wrinkles on your forehead, you might decide to have Botox injections. Additionally, a face lift is commonly combined with a brow lift, eyelid surgery, microdermabrasion, or soft tissue augmentation.
To determine whether you’re a good candidate for a face lift, please schedule a consultation with Plastic Surgery Specialists of Annapolis. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will take the time to answer your questions in-depth and provide a comprehensive evaluation of your needs.

If you’re thinking about undergoing breast augmentation, you’re in good company. Each year, thousands of people decide to have this procedure to improve their appearance and boost their self-confidence. Deciding to have a breast augmentation isn’t the only choice you’ll need to consider; you’ll also need to decide on your preferred size of breast implants. Here are some factors to consider when making your choice:
Consult a Plastic Surgeon
During your consultation with a plastic surgeon, discuss your goals for your appearance. Many people choose to bring in magazine pictures to demonstrate the type of look they desire. The plastic surgeon will measure you and examine your skin elasticity. He or she will then offer customized recommendations for the size range of implants that would best suit your body frame. Another key consideration is the base diameter of your breasts. You’ll need to choose a size of implant that fits you; an implant that is too large for your base diameter won’t fit your breast.
Evaluate Your Choices
Plastic surgeons keep sample sizes of breast implants for patients to evaluate. The sizes are measured by volume, rather than by cup size. They can be anywhere from 120 cubic centimeters (ccs) to 850 ccs. One ounce equals 30 ccs. It’s a good idea to try on a few potential sizes and wear them around for a while to determine your preferences. After your consultation, fill a couple of stockings with rice and place them inside a non-padded bra. Experiment by moving in various ways with different volumes of rice.
Consider Your Clothing Preferences
When you’ve narrowed down your preferred range of volume, consider your wardrobe. Try on different items of clothing – from tailored shirts and jackets to baggy sweatshirts – to evaluate how you look.
The board-certified plastic surgeons of Plastic Surgery Specialists can help you decide which size of implant is best for your body type and preferences. To schedule a consultation, please call our practice in Annapolis at (888) 685-4834. You could also visit our website to learn more about the breast augmentation procedure.
