What A Mommy Makeover Can Do For You
While pregnancy is a wonderful and joyful occurrence, it can also take a toll on a woman’s body. In the past, women who were unhappy with their post-pregnancy bodies either had to undergo several separate plastic surgery procedures, requiring significant downtime, or simply had to learn to live with their bodies. However, in recent years, a new development in plastic surgery has become extremely popular among mothers: the mommy makeover.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover combines several procedures to help women gain back their pre-baby figures. The procedure can consist of a breast lift, a breast augmentation, breast reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction to help balance out a woman’s silhouette. By combining these procedures, downtime is minimized, and it is often a more affordable option.
What Can a Mommy Makeover Achieve?
Since a mommy makeover is a highly customizable treatment, no two patients’ outcomes will be the same. However, patients should understand what each procedure can achieve to obtain the look they desire.
Because pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to droop and sag, many women choose to undergo a breast lift with their mommy makeover. A breast lift can restore the breasts’ youthful position, as well as relocate the areola and nipple. However, a lift cannot change the size of the breasts. A breast augmentation can help to add volume to breasts using breast implants, while a breast reduction can reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess skin and fat.
Pregnancy can also cause the skin on the abdomen to stretch, and the abdominal walls to become weak. A tummy tuck works to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, as well as tighten loose abdominal muscles for a flat, firm stomach.
