What Dr. Chin’s Patients Are Saying
“My experience with the office at Dr. Chin’s starts with my breast lift/reconstruction. The staff was such a positive influence on my psyche especially at a time when I was feeling so vulnerable. I felt at ease at all times, with the questions of surgery answered when I needed them to be. Post surgery Dr. Chin and staff didn’t stop at that, they continued to see my comfort and happiness through to the very completion. Couldn’t be happier… I will be coming back for years.” – J.W.
Featured Procedure: MOMMY MAKEOVER
While childbirth is a beautiful thing, it is rather traumatic for a woman’s body. After pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, many women have stubborn abdominal fat, sagging skin, and deflated, sagging, and/or asymmetrical breasts. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures (breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction) that effectively improve a woman’s body contour after childbirth. Women who are finished having children, who are in overall good health, and who have realistic expectations are good candidates to undergo the life-changing procedures in a Mommy Makeover.Schedule a Consultation
Breast augmentation is a procedure in which saline or silicone implants are inserted into the breasts to increase their size and improve their shape. Pregnancy and breastfeeding cause the breasts to swell and stretch, and the breasts may lose volume and become saggy or deflated afterward. Breast augmentation can fill out the breasts so that they look and feel more firm and voluminous.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding may cause the breasts to sag. A breast lift removes excess skin from the breasts, tightens the breast tissue, and repositions the nipple and areola to improve their placement. This procedure rejuvenates the breasts and restores a more youthful breast appearance.
After childbirth, women often suffer from excess abdominal skin, stubborn belly fat, and weak and detached abdominal muscles that can cause them to continue to look pregnant for years afterward. The tummy tuck portion of the Mommy Makeover corrects these issues by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the core stomach muscles so that the abdomen is once again firm and toned.
Liposuction removes localized fat from targeted areas of the body. The female body often produces excess fat during pregnancy and nursing, and the excess fat in areas such as the lower abdomen and thighs may not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed with the Mommy Makeover to improve the contour of these and many other areas of the body.
