The Mommy Makeover in Kelowna

Mothers are Saints! There is no doubt about that; however, sainthood can be tough on the body! Many mothers can’t avoid the toll their bodies take during pregnancy and childbirth. Furthermore, after having children, no matter how hard some try; their bodies don’t go back to their original form. As we mentioned, sainthood is tough, but not to worry, there is a solution! Read the blog below to find out how board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Peterson can restore mother’s bodies to a youthful feel and appearance, with the plastic surgery procedure, the Mommy Makeover.

The term mommy makeover is not just exclusive to women that have had children; the procedure is successful for variety of women that want to correct loose skin around their abdomen. Good candidates for tummy tucks, clinically known as abdominoplasty, are people with excess skin around the stomach. During pregnancy, the skin expands around the abdomen and depending on the elasticity of the skin, it might not retract to its original position. This results in excess loose skin hanging over the abdomen. This is also a common result for people that have had a large amount of weight loss, and no matter how many crunches they do or miles they run on the treadmill, they can’t seem to rid this excess skin.  Abdominioplasty essentially removes the excess skin and achieves a figure that is more firm and flat. In some cases, Dr. Peterson will repair weakened abdominal muscles, which requires greater care during the recovery period; however that is determined if it’s needed during consultations. The tummy tuck is often combined with liposuction, which will remove any stubborn fat deposits around the abdomen.

The full abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and is carried out on a day care basis. Patient care before and after any plastic surgery procedure is Dr. Peterson’s top priority, and during consultations he will provide patients with specific instructions to ensure that they recover safely. All medications that will minimize any discomfort will be prescribed before the surgery, allowing time for patients to fill them and have it waiting for them at home. Dr. Peterson will also teach patients how to clean and dress the incision site. Both the popularity and advancements in technology have made abdominoplasty a very safe plastic surgery procedure.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
