For some women the changes that come with pregnancy are tumultuous, and none more so than the physical changes. After pregnancy they end up with a body they neither want nor recognize. But it’s possible to say goodbye to your post-baby body with a mommy makeover (click here).
A mommy makeover consists of surgical procedures that are done to rejuvenate the breasts and abdomen after pregnancy. In addition to weight gain, some women grapple with stretch marks, sagging breasts, and a bulging tummy after pregnancy and breast feeding. These can all be corrected with mommy makeover procedures.
Who is a good candidate?
The ideal candidate for a mommy makeover should be in good health, and should also have completed childbearing. During consultation patients should let their plastic surgeon know the main areas that concern them, so that the surgeon can design a treatment plan to address those areas.
Here are some of the more common mommy makeover procedures:
• An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a popular mommy makeover procedure. Pregnancy often results in the stretching of the abdominal muscles, which are unable to snap back into shape. A tummy tuck will remove excess skin and fat, and flatten the abdominal region.
• Breast Lift surgery is done to raise and firm the breasts, which are often left droopy and deflated after pregnancy. This typically involves the removal of excess tissue.
• Liposuction is another sought-after mommy makeover procedure. During surgery excess fat is removed in order to reshape and contour the body.
