No mother could ever describe pregnancy as anything other than incredible, but the same mom will also tell you that childbirth wreaks havoc on the figure. The breasts, belly and torso are often left deflated and sagging, and those layers of stubborn fat may seem impossible to get rid of through dieting and exercise. Body contouring in Seattle can help address these changes in the physique, restoring not only your figure, but your confidence as well.
What does a mommy makeover entail?
A mommy makeover is a combination procedure designed for women who are unhappy with their post-pregnancy figures, and who wish to sculpt and tone the body for a slimmer, more youthful-looking aesthetic. Each mommy makeover procedure is customized to your unique trouble zones, and may include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction, liposuction, a thigh lift, labiaplasty, and in some cases, non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
“Dr. Nadeau explained each step as she went. I knew what was happening in the moment. It was a very good experience.” Patient

Who is the best candidate for body contouring?

They are not planning to have more children, and have not given birth or breastfed in at least six months. Dr. Nadeau suggests that all patients undergoing surgery be in good physical and emotional health, with no major medical issues. They should be non-smokers who have realistic expectations for their results, based on a private consultation with Dr. Nadeau.

After undergoing body contouring in Seattle, Dr. Nadeau may apply compression garments and dressings to ensure that swelling is kept to a minimum and that you maintain your new shape.
