The term mommy makeover says it all. After giving birth one or more times, mommies can reclaim their pre-baby body with a combination of cosmetic procedures. A mommy makeover in Bradenton may include a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and liposuction, among other things. You can customize your procedures according to what you want.
You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if your pregnancy and breastfeeding have changed the size and shape of your breasts. If your abdomen is sagging and if you have pockets of fat that will not go away no matter how much you diet and exercise, this procedure may be perfect for you. Mommy makeovers are intended for women in Bradenton who are finished childbearing and are at a stable weight.
Since a mommy makeover is a combination of procedures, you need to select the type of surgery that will restore your appearance. Your breasts may have lost volume with drooping nipples. They may have become larger, contribute to back pain and be out of proportion to your body. Your waistline may be thick and undefined or you may have had a C-section and have excess fat hanging over the scar. Whatever the reason you are not happy with your appearance, a mommy makeover may be a solution.
Abdominoplasty is called a tummy tuck. It removes fat and excess skin from your abdomen. The procedure involves separating the skin from the muscles so they can be tightened. The fascia that overlays the abdominal muscles can also be tightened. The skin is also stretched and replaced, with the excess being removed.
There are several procedures to improve the appearance of the breasts. A breast lift may be the solution for women who are satisfied with the size of their breasts, but want them to sit higher. Breast implants can help if the breasts have lost volume, and the procedure can be done in combination with a breast lift or not.
Liposuction alone may not be enough to give you a pre-pregnancy body. It will remove fat and is often used in combination with a tummy tuck to remove pockets of fat that are not affected by diet and exercise.
