You may have heard the term “Mommy Makeover” before and wondered, “just what does that entail?” Let’s dive into what it is exactly – and why it is so popular!
What is A Mommy Makeover?
An Abdominoplasty (more commonly referred to as a Tummy Tuck) restores firmness to your stomach by removing loose skin and tightening muscles that were stretched during pregnancy. The procedure is conducted by making an incision at the pubic bone level, where the muscles are tightened up, fat pockets are removed, and excess skin is taken away. The result is a great-looking pre-pregnancy stomach and a minimal scar that can be hidden by a bathing suit or underwear quite easily. There are several tummy tuck surgery options available (each with their own pros and cons), so it is best to consult with your surgeon to find the option that best suits your needs.
Breast Enhancement Surgery:
Breast Enhancements are a great option for women who want to reduce sagginess and regain breast shape post-childbirth. There are generally two options: breast lifts and breast implants. Breast lifts are a long-lasting solution to sagging and loss of volume and are sometimes coupled with implants to get the desired shape and level. As with tummy tucks, there are a variety of options here, and it is important to discuss your needs with your surgeon to come to a solution that is right for you.
Due to the stretching of belly skin during pregnancy, many women are left with loose abdominal skin and stretch marks. Liposuction and abdominoplasty will both help to remove unwanted fat and flatten and contour the stomach area.
Why Choose a Mommy Makeover?
Many women are not fully prepared for how their body will change post-partum. They may struggle with self-confidence and not feeling like themselves in their new body. Some body changes are also particularly hard to reverse with just diet and exercise, such as sagging breasts and stretched out, loose skin. A Mommy Makeover can go a long way to boost a woman’s confidence after giving birth.
