Mother’s Day is a special time when moms across Long Island and the country are recognized for their amazing achievements and daily devotion to their families. Dr. Romanelli and his staff hope that you enjoy your special day and get to relax while taking some well-deserved time for yourself.
It’s too bad that there’s only one official day when the focus is all on mom. As a mother, you’ve had to give up a lot of yourself in your efforts to support your family, and the sacrifices are worth it for the joy your children bring. But let’s be honest: not every change that comes with motherhood is a positive one, and if you’re like many moms, you might look in the mirror now and then and reminisce about the days when you looked and felt much younger.
In the spirit of “having it all,” more and more women are learning that they don’t have to give up their youthful looks to raise their children – in short, they can feel fantastic about themselves and their families. Their secret? A combined plastic surgery procedure known as a “mommy makeover.”
You may have read about mommy makeovers in recent issues of your favorite magazine or seen a TV news feature on these increasingly popular cosmetic procedures. Dr. Romanelli performs mommy makeovers at his Long Island practice to help women turn back the clock on such areas as the stomach, hips, and breasts – the places most likely to suffer the effects of pregnancy and childbirth.
The mommy makeovers Dr. Romanelli performs are not one-size-fits-all procedures. Each procedure is specially customized to a particular mom’s need. After pregnancy, most women see unwelcome changes in the abdominal area, which only makes sense – no other area of your body undergoes greater changes during pregnancy. Once the baby arrives, it takes more than a snap of your fingers or a wave of a wand for your body to “bounce back” to its pre-pregnancy shape, and in many cases, the only way to tighten stretched-out abdominal muscles is through a tummy tuck procedure on Long Island. In fact, abdominoplasty is the cornerstone of most mommy makeovers.
But cosmetic improvement doesn’t need to stop at your tummy. Pregnancy and nursing can cause your breasts to lose shape, size, and contour. Thankfully, Dr. Romanelli offers several breast enhancement procedures – including breast lift and breast augmentation for Long Island moms – to help moms who want to regain their youthful breast contour. Mommy makeover candidates also may choose:
- Liposuction to remove excess fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and arms
- Facial sculpting procedures such as eyelid lift or BOTOX® Cosmetic
If you’re like many moms, these cosmetic improvements sound appealing – after all, who hasn’t considered a little nip and tuck? – but you worry about taking time away from your family. Dr. Romanelli understands the unique needs of moms choosing plastic surgery and uses techniques to minimize recovery so you can be back on your feet within a matter of days.
