Crystal wanted a Mommy Makeover after giving birth and breastfeeding her two children. After consulting with three cosmetic-surgeons, Dr. Richard H. Dubou and Louisville Plastics became her cosmetic surgeon and team of choice. The following interview tells her story and why Louisville Plastics was the exact fit for refining her beauty.
Crystal, you chose a tummy tuck and breast augmentation for yourself after having two children. So tell me what having children “did” to your body and your reasons for wanting to have a “Mommy Makeover”?
Well, my two children are the biggest joy to my life.
But like most women, pregnancy did do some things to me physically; you just gain some extra weight. After my children were born, I chose to breastfeed both of them. But the result of the breastfeeding is that I went down in cup size. That was a surprise to me. I didn’t think would happen but it did. And it bothered me. I couldn’t fill out my wardrobe in the way I was accustomed to.
OK. And the tummy tuck?
You can see I am very petite. I have always kept in shape because of that. But even after I had lost my pregnancy weight through dieting and exercise – and I lost my weight fast
– I had extra skin that I didn’t like.
