New visual guide on beautybybuford.com stresses the importance of customizing the popular combination of cosmetic procedures for each woman

DENVER, May 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new infographic published by Dr. Gregory Buford offers advice about Mommy Makeovers in an easy-to-understand, engaging format. "Before Baby Body: A Guide to Mommy Makeovers" describes the physical changes women often experience after pregnancy. The infographic suggests a variety of cosmetic procedures to help mothers restore the pre-baby body.

"Many new moms lose self-confidence when their bodies don't return to normal after giving birth," says Dr. Buford, a board certified plastic surgeon. "This new infographic conveys a lot of information about the Mommy Makeover set of procedures, but the most important point is that the procedure can be tailored specifically to meet each mother's unique needs and goals."

Diet and Exercise Aren't Always Effective

Although Dr. Buford is a strong advocate for a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, he recognizes that the changes caused by pregnancy cannot always be improved through these factors. For example, hormonal fluctuations may cause fat to be stored on the torso, but paradoxically may also leave a woman with deflated breasts. He developed an approach to counteract these changes he calls the "Before Baby Body" procedure, a personalized combination of services.

"Before Baby Body" Procedures

Dr. Buford's "Before Baby Body" can contain a variety of cosmetic procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical, as shown in the new infographic. Pregnancy affects the skin, muscles, and tissues of the breasts and the abdomen, but it can also cause changes to the skin, such as an uneven complexion or acne. Based on the individual's patients concerns, a Mommy Makeover can also include facial procedures and skin services in addition to addressing changes to the body. Dr. Buford's "Before Baby Body" can include any of the following:

  • Breast augmentation to restore youthful shape and contour
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to regain a taut abdomen and tighten muscles
  • VASER liposuction to remove spot fat deposits and create pleasing proportions
  • Skin treatments such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels to improve the appearance of the skin, including reducing stretch marks
  • Injectables such as BOTOX or JUVEDERM for a rested, refreshed appearance
  • Ongoing skin care programs to maintain smooth, healthy skin

Combine Surgeries for Faster Recovery, Greater Cost Benefit

One of the major advantages of choosing a Mommy Makeover suite of procedures is to save recovery time and reduce expense by combining surgeries. After an initial recovery period of 2 to 3 weeks-when help will be needed at home, especially with young children-women are generally able to return to a fairly normal schedule; after about 6 to 8 weeks, women are ready to resume vigorous exercise. 

Dr. Buford urges any woman who is considering a Mommy Makeover to choose a board certified plastic surgeon with proven experience in both breast and body procedures. He adds that seeing the surgeon's before-and-after photos can give a prospective patient a sense of the physician's skill level and aesthetic judgment.
