Did you know that one of the largest demographics of plastic surgery recipients are mothers seeking to correct the physical rigors of not only childbirth, but the intensely demanding duties of motherhood? While everyone’s anatomy is unique, many mothers have found renewed confidence and an overall sense of well being after having had one or more of the very common procedures which we’ll be discussing here today.

Tummy Tucks for Moms
Tummy tuck procedures, also known as abdominoplasty, are among the most commonly requested cosmetic surgeries for mothers. Of course, having a child can reek a certain amount of havoc on one’s abdomen, and this type of surgery can restore one’s midsection to its previously flat and tight state. A tummy tuck is generally performed by removing unnecessary skin—common after the stretching which occurs during pregnancy—as well as fat. Muscles that have separated, contributing to the ‘paunch’, are sutured back together. Some women may benefit from a “full” tummy tuck or may only need a “mini” tummy tuck. Both procedures follow the same general outline and steps, but as you might suspect a “full” tummy tuck is more comprehensive than the other.
After pregnancy and breast feeding, the breasts can look “deflated”. There is a loss of breast volume, and sometimes mild sagginess. This can often be corrected with breast augmentation alone, using implants. The most commonly used implants today are called silicone cohesive gel implants.
If you’re a patient of the best plastic surgeon in Toronto, it’s possible that they might recommend this kind of cosmetic procedure to you after pregnancy. This is because pregnancy can leave the breasts less full or—particularly after the breast feeding phase is over—with additional skin. This can result in the breasts sagging in an undesirable way. A breast lift involves the removal of unnecessary skin and tissue in order to reduce sagging and return the breast to its former height and shape.
Liposuction is often a helpful procedure for mothers who have areas on their body which are resistant to the traditional means of weight loss. A “targeted” liposuction procedure usually involves the use of a laser or ultrasound to remove stubborn fat from specific areas. Laser / Ultrasonic liposuction has become increasingly popular, especially for mothers, after it was approved in 2007 by the FDA. This form of liposuction offers the added benefit of tightening the skin surrounding the area which is being focused on.
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure which has received a relatively high degree of attention from the media in recent years—while not as common as, say, a facelift, this is an effective cosmetic surgery which can restore the genital region to its former state. An important consideration is that labiaplasty is not always a strictly cosmetic surgery, as long or uneven labia may cause distinct discomfort during physical activities such as exercise or intercourse.
For those seeking the best plastic surgery in Toronto, their plastic surgeon may recommend a butt lift. These procedures generally involve the reshaping and perhaps resizing of the buttock area through liposuction and through the transference of fat from one area of the patient’s body to the buttock. The goal of a butt lift is to raise the buttocks as well as to provide it with a rounder, fuller appearance.
To learn more about these procedures and what else is possible through receiving the top plastic surgery in Toronto, mothers are encouraged to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon. During this consultation you should feel completely comfortable asking any and all questions you may have about these procedures or others.
