Posted in Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy and childbirth are some of the most rewarding experiences in a woman’s life. The only downfall is that these significant milestones can leave a woman’s body looking and feeling unlike their own. From stretched skin, sagging deflated breasts, excess stubborn fat pockets, and a lack of self-confidence that is palpable, it’s no wonder many women are turning to cosmetic surgery—specifically the hero of body care procedures, the mommy makeover.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a total body treatment plan that often includes a breast lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. It is generally performed to help with the effects of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and childbirth. These surgeries offer their own unique benefits, but when put together into a cohesive plan, mothers can gain their self-confidence and feel more like themself in their own skin.
Here are a few of the best procedures to include in your mommy makeover:
Abdominoplasty/ Tummy Tuck
The abdomen takes arguably the most substantial hit when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth. The skin needs to stretch, the muscles separate, and all of the internal organs shift to accommodate the child’s growth. After childbirth, it can be challenging to put everything back into its rightful place. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can be added to your mommy makeover to address stretched skin, hanging tissues, and separated abdominal muscles, effectively tightening everything back up and restoring that pre-pregnancy fit.
The unfortunate weight gain that comes with pregnancy can be some of the most difficult to get rid of once you’ve given birth. Liposuction can be performed during your mommy makeover to remove lingering fat in the abdominal area, thighs, back, buttock, upper arms, and even areas of the face. When performed by a skilled surgeon, the procedure is quick, safe, and has minimal downtime.
Your breasts are another significant area that changes during pregnancy, childbirth, and especially during breastfeeding. Your breasts might appear larger during your pregnancy and while you’re breastfeeding, but due to gaining and losing volume, this can result in sagging once the baby is weened. A breast augmentation can restore lost volume with breast implants for rounder, perkier breasts.
Breast Reduction and Lift:
Some women’s breasts remain overly large even after childbirth and breastfeeding. You can choose to have a breast reduction to help restore your comfortable, modest pre-pregnancy breasts. A mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, can also be added to lift the breast into a more youthful and comfortable position while also removing excess skin and tissue.
