Having a child usually is the one of the most magical and fulfilling experiences of a woman’s life. Unfortunately, the physical toll that pregnancy and childbirth have on a woman’s body can be devastating. During childbirth, as the baby passes through the birth canal, the muscles, fascia, and ligaments separate and may be weakened.
The internal and external diameters increase. The muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported. Under these circumstances, the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state. As a result, the sensual side of sexual gratification is diminished.
More and more women are seeking out Dr. Huertas to rejuvenate tummies to the youthful firmness they enjoyed before having children and to enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. These procedures are collectively called “mommy makeovers” or post-maternity body reshaping. Mommy makeovers are individualized for each patient, but procedures performed include abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck), vaginal rejuvenation, liposuction and Brazilian butt lift.
No two patients are the same, so the mommy makeover combines the best of these procedures to restore a youthful, pre-pregnancy body and to enhance or improve sexual gratification.
