More and more women are getting mommy makeovers to rejuvenate the look of their bodies. Post-pregnancy, many women find that as much as they diet and exercise, they cannot control the excess skin, stretch marks and bulging on their abdomens. They also often wish to return their breasts to the natural, firmer look they had pre-pregnancy. Many women are getting breast lifts, breast augmentations and tummy tucks in order to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies.
A mastopexy, or breast lift, will boost and raise the bust line through the removal of excess skin from the breasts and the reshaping of surrounding tissue. It will firm up the breasts. The size of the areolas can be reduced, as well, during the procedure. A mastopexy will give the breasts a younger, firmer and perkier appearance.
If you are unsatisfied with the fullness of your breasts post-pregnancy, breast augmentation surgery can add volume to your profile. The surgery can also firm up any sagging caused from pregnancy.
It is a challenge to tighten the abdomen post-pregnancy. Sometimes sagging skin remains that cannot be touched by diet and exercise. A tummy tuck procedure will remove the excess fat and skin from a sagging stomach—and will usually restore weakened muscles.
If you are self-conscious about the way you look after your pregnancy, and want to get back to looking like “normal,” a mommy makeover might be the right fit for you.
