Having a Baby Changes Everything
And a Woman’s Body is no Exception
Most women embark on motherhood with unwavering joy, and new moms are taught to expect certain things: midnight feedings, seemingly endless diaper changes, and total responsibility for a precious new life.But no one can truly be prepared for the reality of the physical changes that go hand in hand with having a baby. Sometimes, a simple glance in the mirror is all it takes to demolish years of hard-won body confidence.
Be it stretch marks or less than perky breasts, flabby tummies or thicker thighs, uneven complexions or adult acne, the physical changes a new mom encounters may leave you feeling uncomfortable about your body. With an understanding of how lack of confidence in your appearance can define how you feel, board certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Buford can help you reclaim your “Before Baby Body” with a completely personalized mommy makeover.Before & After
Dr. Buford developed Before Baby Body in an effort to help rebuild the body confidence new moms can lose after having a baby. A strong advocate of nutrition and exercise, Dr. Buford admits that sometimes diet and exercise alone can’t shed the unwanted fatty deposits formed after pregnancy, nor can a healthy lifestyle firm up flattened breasts. When pregnancy results in stubborn fat build up in the tummy and thigh areas and loss of volume in the chest, Dr. Buford believes the right balance of smart eating, exercise, and customized nips and tucks can help to counteract the impact of pregnancy and childbirth on a woman’s body.
Reclaim the Body You Know & Love
Offering a personalized approach, Dr. Buford works with you to determine your specific needs and develop a customized plan that leaves you looking and feeling beautiful.Your mommy makeover may include services such as:
- Breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination augmentation and lift to restore shape and volume to the breasts
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to regain elasticity in the abdomen
- VASER LipoSelection to correct problem areas resulting from pregnancy
- Laser Skin Resurfacing to lighten and eliminate stretch marks
- BOTOX® and dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® for a more rested appearance
- Customized skin care and nutritional programs are available
With a new baby and a growing family, finding the time for plastic surgery can prove to be a challenge. The complete Before Baby Body suite of services blend together to bring the best possible results with the least amount of downtime. In addition, Dr. Buford’s whole-body Responsible Contouring Program takes into account nutritional factors which may either help or hinder your early healing. A carefully selected panel of labs will be drawn approximately 2 weeks before your surgery to assess your nutritional status and your ability to heal after your procedure. Any deficiencies will be addressed through either changes in your diet or supplementation as necessary and you will be connected with an experienced nutritionist who will help guide you through the process. These same labs will then be drawn after your surgery to assure that your body is finely tuned and optimized for best results. Dr. Buford is one of the only Plastic Surgeons who looks at lifestyle factors and nutrition as a means to help you achieve optimal results. This passion for healthy living was developed from his own personal interest in healthy living as well as his experience as a Men’s Physique Competitor and the changes he saw in his own body as a result of changes to his diet.
