Mommy makeover procedures have been around for more than 20 years, and have become increasingly popular. Pregnancy can have a dramatic impact on a woman’s body. They gain weight in areas they never have before, stretch marks and scars form, skin loses its elasticity, and muscles weaken. On top of all these physical changes, a new mom also has to adjust emotionally and mentally to her new role as a mother. A mommy makeover can help ease that adjustment by helping new moms feel beautiful inside and out to renew their confidence.
A mommy makeover is a procedure designed to address all the changes that occur during and after pregnancy and help women rejuvenate their bodies after giving birth and breastfeeding. The results from a mommy makeover can be astounding, with our patients experiencing a renewed sense of inner confidence and feeling great about their bodies for the first time since having their children.
The surgical procedures that make up the mommy makeover vary from patient to patient, but the goals are usually focused on restoring balance in a woman’s appearance and addressing physical changes that were caused by pregnancy. In some cases, people opt for the mommy makeover because they are unhappy with how their body has changed due to childbirth. Others choose it because they had already been planning on getting cosmetic surgery before they became pregnant but couldn’t due to health reasons. The surgeries that make up the mommy makeover procedure might include any of the following:
A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. New mothers can get rid of sagging skin or the stomach pooch that stays behind after giving birth for a slimmer, more toned appearance.
After breastfeeding, a woman’s breasts can become saggy, misshapen, or larger than desired. A breast lift removes excess breast tissue and reshapes the remaining tissue to create smaller breasts with a perkier appearance. Enlarged areolas can also be reduced during this procedure. The result is firmer, lifted breasts that help mothers regain their youthful appearance.
Childbirth can cause a woman’s labia to stretch and/or become asymmetrical. A labiaplasty removes excess vaginal skin for an aesthetically pleasing look but also offers physical benefits like less labial irritation, better hygiene, and less interference during sexual intercourse. Dr. Trupiano’s vaginal rejuvenation procedure can include a labiaplasty along with a complete rejuvenation to tighten, tone, and strengthen the vagina.
Liposuction can be performed almost anywhere on the body to remove excess fat and loose skin. During pregnancy, women gain a significant amount of weight that can be difficult to lose with exercise after childbirth. Liposuction will re-tone the waist, hips, back, buttocks, and thighs to recontour new mothers’ natural curves and help them regain their self-confidence.
After a mommy makeover, new mothers’ bodies will be restored to the beautiful figure they had before they were pregnant. To regain your confidence and youthful appearance, schedule a consultation with Dr. Trupiano by filling out an online contact form.
