All women who give birth will vouch for the fact that pregnancy can change the body in many different ways, and these changes are far from subtle. It may seem nearly impossible to get back to your original body shape after delivering a baby.
While some women may benefit from exercise and dieting after childbirth, many others need something more to get back that pre-pregnancy body. The mommy makeover is an excellent solution for women who aren’t benefitting enough from just diet and exercise or do not have the time to invest in exercise regimens.
Understanding the Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a popular cosmetic procedure among new mothers and includes a series of different surgical procedures. This customized package of procedures is aimed at minimizing the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding on a woman’s body. It helps restore the body to its original shape and form as much as possible, and it can also enhance the body.
It is possible to customize each mommy makeover depending on the specific requirements of a woman. It can include a mix of procedures, including the following:
• Breast lift
• Breast augmentation
• Tummy tuck
Procedure Options for a Mommy Makeover
Depending on your particular needs and desires, your mommy makeover may include one or more than one of the following appearance-enhancing surgeries.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is among the most common procedures performed as part of a mommy makeover. This procedure is performed when at least a couple of months have passed after childbirth (usually six months or so) and helps significantly in reducing the appearance of sagging loose skin, drooping muscle, and stubborn fat pockets around the abdominal area. It’s very difficult if not impossible to address sagging skin with exercise and dieting, and a tummy tuck offers an effective fix.
Another common procedure in a mommy makeover is a breast lift. In a breast lift surgery, your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin from the breasts in order to lift, smooth, and gently reshape. The result is a perkier and more youthful appearance. The surgery also involves the upward shifting of the areolae and nipples on your breasts to further enhance their appearance.
Besides the breast lift, another cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of your breasts after childbirth is breast augmentation. This procedure enhances the projection as well as the size of your breasts. If there is a loss of volume in your breasts after pregnancy, this procedure is ideal.
Your plastic surgeon will use breast implants to add more fullness to your breasts, thereby improving your overall body shape. Several options for the type of implant, size, shape, texture, and implant placement will be available so that you can achieve the most desirable results from your surgery.
Liposuction is a procedure that is used to remove stubborn excess fat from areas of your body like the hips, thighs, lower abdomen, and buttocks. This shrinks these areas in volume and creates more appealing proportions and contours.
