Customized Mommy Makeover Options With Corona Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Christopher Chung Offers Mothers a Surgery Plan Tailored to Their Individual Needs

CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - Dr. Christopher Chung, a board-certified plastic surgeon, understands that for many women, being a mother means putting the needs of others ahead of her own. He also believes that taking care of others should not prohibit mothers from taking care of themselves as well. At Renaissance Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Chung's private practice, many patients are finding that a mommy makeover can improve their self-image and boost their confidence, which has a positive impact on their overall well-being.

Mommy makeover options offered at Renaissance Aesthetic Surgery include:

  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
  • Mini-tummy tuck (mini-abdominoplasty)
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast augmentation
  • Liposuction

Mommy makeover procedures address bodily changes related to being a mother. After pregnancies and breast-feeding, changes to the breasts and abdomen along with some new areas of fat deposit occur. According to Dr. Chung, breast changes often involve upper breast deflation and changes to the position and/or size of the nipple/areolar complex. Abdominal changes typically involve the development of stretch marks, excess skin (at times accentuated by a C-section scar), and fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Many of Dr. Chung's patients are pleasantly surprised that the recovery for a mommy makeover is oftentimes no longer than the recovery for a single procedure. When a patient is recovering concurrently from several procedures, typically either the breast or the tummy will take forefront in discomfort. Most of his mommy makeover patients return to work in 7-9 days and cease taking all pain medications within 10 days.

Dr. Chung highlights that safety must be the guiding element when patients are considering multiple procedures. His personal limit for surgery is six hours, which allows him to perform many different combinations of procedures without compromising patient safety. Dr. Chung says patients should consult their surgeons before undergoing any procedure, as prolonged anesthesia can lead to lengthy recovery and increase potential complications/risks.

At Renaissance Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Chung's plastic surgery practice, he is proud to have his wife, a board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, personally oversee the recovery of all his patients. In his opinion, there is no better person than an Emergency Medicine doctor to handle a patient's critical recovery period.
