Very few women bounce back to their pre-pregnancy figures after delivery and breastfeeding, and almost no one bounces back after several pregnancies. Fortunately, a mommy makeover can take care of all that and help you achieve fuller breasts and a tight abdomen. A mommy makeover combines several cosmetic surgeries that will help restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance or even better. When you talk to our specialist, you can customize your mommy makeover to get your best look.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
There are several parts to a mommy makeover, but it mainly focuses on your breasts and abdomen. It includes:
A tummy tuck – called an abdominoplasty, there are several levels of a tummy tuck. The surgery permanently tightens your abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and fat. You can choose a traditional full abdominoplasty, a belt lipectomy called an extended tummy tuck, a mini tummy tuck with a smaller scar, a reverse tummy tuck or non-surgical body contouring.
Breast enhancement – there are two main types of breast enhancement including a breast lift and breast implants. A breast lift may be recommended if you want to raise sagging breasts. If you have lost volume or want slightly larger sized breasts, you may consider breast implants. They replace lost tissue that occurs because of hormonal changes and breastfeeding.
Liposuction – this is a treatment that removes fat from your body, but it is not a weight reduction tool. It may be used during a tummy tuck to remove fat pockets that simply don’t go no matter how much exercise you do. It may also be used to contour your waist so your breasts, waist and abdomen look proportionate.
Remove stretch marks – for some women, the stretch marks will naturally fade over time, but if they don’t, we offer several treatments that may reduce their appearance. Many of the stretch marks on your abdomen may be removed during a tummy tuck.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
As stated above, a woman whose skin and muscles are sagging and become weak due to pregnancy is a good candidate for a mommy makeover. However, there are a few things you may need to consider. If you plan to have more children, you should wait until you are finished childbearing and breastfeeding because no mommy makeover will last through another pregnancy. In case you do become pregnant, you will need some touch-up surgery to return to your pre-pregnancy figure.
