Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body. It can affect the abdomen, breasts, and legs. After giving birth and after nursing, many women long to have their pre-baby body back. Many focus on diet and exercise with the goal of obtaining those results. Diet and exercise will help a person rebuild muscle and lose weight. However, there is a limit to what diet and exercise can do for a person. There are still going to be pockets of fat that diet and exercise cannot treat. There may be excess skin and stretch marks that cannot be dieted or exercised away. This is why many women in Michigan choose to boost their confidence with a mommy makeover.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
This is a surgical procedure designed to address issues that many women face with their body after pregnancy. The idea is to use multiple techniques during a single surgical session. Some of the procedures that are combined together may include:
• Breast enhancement
• Tummy tuck
Since multiple procedures are combined during the surgical session, women are able to take care of a number of the complaints they may have about their body post pregnancy.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
If you are considering getting a mommy makeover in Michigan, it is worth it for you to decide whether or not you are a good candidate. Part of determining your candidacy is having an initial consultation with us. During that initial consultation, we will be able to look at your aesthetic issues and health issues with the goal of determining what options are best for you.
A good candidate is someone who wants to get their body back to their pre-pregnancy appearance. It’s recommended that you wait at least six months after delivery before surgery. You will also need to have finished breast-feeding your child as this will give the doctors a truer idea of the size and position of your breasts. If you are planning on having more children, then it may be best for you to wait until you are done having children before going through with this procedure.
Pregnancy after having a mommy makeover is still possible. But the reason why it’s recommended for you to wait is because pregnancy will stretch out your skin and your abdominal muscles again, undoing the repairs that were done with the mommy makeover.
