The Mommy Makeover has become so popular because it is customizable to each patient to address every patients’ unique needs. The procedure got its name because it is most common amongst mothers looking to reverse the effects of pregnancy, childbearing, and nursing. Unfortunately, during this time, the body goes through a series of changes leaving women with loose skin, sagging breasts, and excess fat around the abdominal area.
While a Mommy Makeover is centered around breast and abdomen procedures, the surgery can be a combination of a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift or augmentation, and any additional procedures as needed. Typically, these procedures can be done in one surgery. However, this depends on the extent of the surgery and the plastic surgeon’s professional preference.
Childbearing and nursing can take a toll on a woman’s breasts. That’s why breast augmentation and lifts are one of the two of the most popular choices for a mommy makeover. Breast lifts can remove excess sagging from the breasts and lifts them for more younger firmer looking breasts.
Throughout a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues stretch to accommodate the growing baby safely. After giving birth, the abdominal area can be left with unwanted sagging skin. Tummy tucks help firm and flatten the abdomen to help you feel more comfortable in your skin after pregnancy. This procedure is part of the two more popular procedures consisting of a Mommy Makeover.
Adding Liposuction to your mommy makeover can help remove stubborn pockets of fat that may be difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise. This minimally invasive procedure may be a good addition to your Mommy Makeover procedure to remove excess body fat from any problem areas you may have.
Pregnancy can leave lasting and unwanted effects on a woman’s physical appearance. Many women feel discouraged after a healthy diet and exercise are not enough to return to their pre-pregnancy shape. By addressing these unwanted changes, a mommy makeover can help you feel confident in your body again and feel more like yourself.
