postpartum body contouring

Postpartum body contouring is a comprehensive approach tailored to address the unique changes women experience after childbirth. At North Oakland Plastic Surgery, we understand that while the term “mommy makeover” is commonly used, it often oversimplifies the diverse needs of each patient. Here, we prefer to consider each individual’s goals and conditions, providing personalized solutions through advanced surgical techniques.

Breast Restoration

Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women notice significant changes in their breasts, such as volume loss, sagginess, or, less commonly, an increase in breast size. To address these issues, our procedures include breast augmentation for increased volume, lifts to correct sagginess, and reductions for overly large breasts. Dr. Hainer also employs fat grafting techniques for those seeking a modest enhancement without implants, ensuring each solution is finely tuned to the patient’s specific aesthetic goals.

Abdominal Recontouring

The abdomen often undergoes the most visible changes postpartum, with concerns including stretch marks, excess skin, and muscle separation, sometimes accompanied by belly button hernias. Depending on the extent of these changes, Dr. Hainer offers solutions ranging from liposuction to address excess fat, to mini or full tummy tucks for more comprehensive restoration. Non-invasive options like Coolsculpt and Vanquish are available for fat reduction, and microneedling treatments can improve the appearance of stretch marks.

Nether Region Adjustments

Changes to the labia minora and mons pubis are not uncommon after childbirth, leading to hygiene, aesthetic, and functional issues, including discomfort during intercourse. Labiaplasty, monsplasty, clitoral hood reduction, and fat grafting are among the procedures we offer to address these concerns, helping women regain confidence and comfort in their intimate health.

Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite affects the majority of women, irrespective of weight, and can be a source of significant self-consciousness. At North Oakland Plastic Surgery, we offer Cellfina, a minimally invasive procedure that provides a long-term solution to cellulite. This treatment effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite in a single session, offering a permanent, maintenance-free solution to enhance skin texture and tone.

In conclusion, postpartum body contouring at North Oakland Plastic Surgery is not a one-size-fits-all approach but a series of carefully customized procedures designed to address the specific changes women face after childbirth. Dr. Richard Hainer’s expertise in state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical techniques ensures optimal outcomes tailored to each patient’s individual needs and desires.
