After giving birth, it’s not uncommon for mothers to long for their pre-pregnancy body. If you can relate, consider a mommy makeover. Our experts can help you decide which procedures and treatments are best suited for you.
What Does It Involve?
What is a mommy makeover like? We offer a combination of popular post-pregnancy procedures. These procedures may include breast augmentation, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. Why these three procedures in particular?
Being pregnant can cause many changes in a woman’s body—one of the most notable transformations is the breasts. During pregnancy, breasts typically grow due to hormone changes and the production of milk. However, breasts can begin to sag or deflate. This is where breast augmentation or a simple breast lift comes into play and can return your breasts to their ideal size and shape.
With pregnancy comes a new need to store fat. Since fat functions as extra energy for the body to burn during pregnancy, it should come as no surprise that some of that pregnancy fat stubbornly stays after a woman gives birth. Many women find that fat accumulates around their hips, buttocks, and thighs during pregnancy. This fat often refuses to leave despite diet and exercise. Targeted liposuction can eliminate this problem.
Like any other tummy tuck, the procedure included in a mommy makeover is meant to tighten the muscles and skin around the abdominal region. This can be the most difficult part of the body to return to normal post-pregnancy without surgery—especially since it needs extra time to recover after the woman gives birth. A tummy tuck will help remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal region and even tighten the underlying muscles.
Get Your Mommy Makeover
Most plastic surgeons will insist women give their bodies adequate time to recover from birth before undergoing any procedure. A mommy makeover typically means waiting for a set amount of time after birth before undergoing any procedures. If you are still breastfeeding or planning on having more children, then it is also recommended you postpone the procedures. A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that will last a lifetime, so it’s a worthwhile investment for women who are finished with family planning.
