What is included in a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy affects your body in more ways than you can imagine. Pregnancy, childbirth, breast-feeding, and the general mental stressors of motherhood leave an imprint on your physical body. Most women can’t help but feel a serious longing for their pre-pregnancy body. Mommy makeover turns that desire into reality. You don’t have to choose between motherhood and your body, you can have both.
Mommy Makeover is a collective term used to describe a wide range of surgical procedures that restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. During your mommy makeover consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will examine your body and discuss your expectation to curate the ideal mommy makeover treatment plan to restore your pre-pregnancy body with a fit and sculpted silhouette.
Mommy makeover may include a wide range of surgical procedures, depending on your needs and expectations. Some of the most common procedures used for mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction. In this article, we describe some of the most popular surgical procedures commonly used as a part of a mommy makeover.
Pregnancy often leads to loss of volume in the breasts. Breast augmentation is used to restore lost volume and resolve asymmetry issues, giving you perfectly-sized cups for the ideal silhouette. During breast augmentation surgery, breast implants are placed either beneath the chest muscles or breast tissues for a natural appearance.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Pregnancy and nursing often lead to sagging breasts that appear deflated with downwards-pointing nipples. Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure used to restore your breasts to a position higher on the chest wall, reshaping or repairing existing breast tissues, and possibly reshaping the nipples. Mastopexy helps you achieve a plump and rounded pair of breasts.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Pregnancy often leads to a layer of stubborn fat that refuses to go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. When all else fails, tummy tuck helps you get trim and sculpted abdominals. A tummy tuck, medically called an abdominoplasty, is a procedure used to create a firm and attractive abdomen. This is achieved by repairing stretched abdominal muscles, removing excess fat tissues and skin, and sculpting the stomach to look firm and tight.
After pregnancy, most women are left with pockets of stubborn fat around the love handles, thigh, waist, arms, and other regions. Liposuction is a procedure used to streamline your body’s profile, removing all the stubborn fat tissues from your body. During the procedure, the excessive fat tissues are vacuumed out of your body to help you achieve a well-sculpted appearance.
After pregnancy, some women find that their breasts are disproportionately sized, or that they’ve grown too large. Breast reduction is a surgical method to reduce unwanted breast tissues and reshape the remaining tissues to give you a perfectly proportionate set of youthful, lively, and perky breasts. In addition to cosmetic appearance, breast reduction may also improve movements and minimize issues like shoulder and back pains.
Other Nonsurgical Procedures
Pregnancy may also leave your skin looking lax, dry, or blemished. In addition to surgical procedures, mommy makeover also includes a wide range of nonsurgical procedures that rejuvenate your skin and body, making you appear more youthful and lively.
