Having a baby is a beautiful thing, but the stretch marks left behind on your belly and breasts aren’t quite as beautiful, are they? If your once flawless tummy now looks like a map of the everglades and your pre-baby breasts seem like a distant dream, you’re in luck. Dr. Lisa J. Learn can restore your youthful skin and make it look as smooth as your baby’s bottom!
Stretch marks happen when your skin can’t keep up with your body’s growth. Pregnancy can definitely do the trick! As your baby grows, so does your body, causing the elastic fibers beneath the surface of the skin to break and leave behind reddish lines that eventually fade to a silvery hue. These mainly appear on the belly and breasts, but have been known to show up on thighs, buttocks, and upper arms too. So what’s a new mom to do?
Dr. Lisa J. Learn’s Mommy Makeover is a package of procedures that tackles post-pregnancy problem areas. A combination of a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction can remove excess tissue—and the stretch marks with it! You may want to ask about laser technology, too, which uses concentrated light beams to boost collagen growth and minimize any signs of overstretched skin.
While you are expecting, eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, keeping skin moisturized, and trying not gain too much weight too quickly can all help to minimize stretch marks, but there’s no guarantee, and no miracle product to prevent them from happening to you. Never fear—Dr. Lisa J. Learn is here!
