A Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic surgery that can help a woman improve the appearance of her post-pregnancy body. The breasts, tummy and legs may sag a little more after delivery and breastfeeding, and many women do rigorous dieting and exercise to improve their bodies. However, that may not be a solution for all of the problems. A Mommy Makeover is an umbrella term for a combination of customized cosmetic procedures that are designed to restore your pre-baby figure.
A Mommy Makeover may involve a tummy tuck, breast enhancement and fat removal with liposuction. While this may cover the most common post-pregnancy complaints, the Mommy Makeover is not one-size-fits-all. Each procedure is customized for the patient based on their wants and needs.
Mommy Makeovers may not be for all women. When you talk to our specialist, you can express your issues with your body and learn about the possible treatments. We recommend that you let your body heal naturally for a set amount of time after your delivery before you make a decision about cosmetic surgery. There is no guarantee that the results of a Mommy Makeover will be retained after an additional pregnancy.
Some common procedures included in a typical Mommy Makeover are:
• Tummy tuck surgery, which restores the firmness to the abdomen area and removes loose skin and some excess fat. There are various types of tummy tuck surgeries, and our specialist can help you choose the one that solves your post-pregnancy issues.
• Breast augmentation, which helps breasts that are sagging after breastfeeding look and feel as they did before pregnancy. When breastfeeding stops, the hormones decrease and the tissue may deflate. Breast enhancement may include implants or just a breast lift. If there is too much tissue loss, a breast lift may not solve the problem and implants may be your best option.
• Fat removal is another procedure that may be welcome for a woman who has gained a lot during pregnancy and has not been able to lose all of it through dieting and exercising. Liposuction can remove fat, but it does nothing for the loose skin left behind. This is where the tummy tuck helps.
The aim of a Mommy Makeover is to help women deal with the effects pregnancy and breastfeeding can do to their bodies. It is possible that you can look even better than you did before you got pregnant.
