Are you happy you have children but not happy with your post-pregnancy body? Do you look in the mirror and not love what you see? If so, you may want to consider a mommy makeover. This procedure can be tailored just for you so that you can restore your self-confidence and love what you see in the mirror.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A “mommy makeover” is actually a combination of treatments and procedures designed to reduce problem areas faced by women after pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and child rearing.
Depending on the patient’s desired results, procedures can include any combination of:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reconstruction
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
Some of the many benefits of a mommy makeover include:
Get a Flatter Midsection
Your abdomen usually loses its shape during the constant gaining and losing of weight in pregnancy. After childbirth, this can leave you with loose, flabby skin that makes you feel less than your best. One common procedure of a mommy makeover is a tummy tuck, which removes that excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles.
Restore Youthfulness to the Breasts
The breasts are another common area of the body affected adversely by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Some women see their breasts droop and sag, while others see the fullness of their breasts decrease or their shape change. Breast augmentation is a popular component of a mommy makeover.
During breast augmentation, depending on your desired results, you can have your breasts lifted to reduce drooping and bring back their youthful look. You also can have excess skin (and the weight of it) removed from your breasts. If you would like to regain the shape of your breasts, implants can be added during this procedure.
Many women see fat rolls on their post-pregnancy body, no matter how hard they exercise. That is where the liposuction element of a mommy makeover comes in. Liposuction can be used on practically any area of the body, so it can be customized based on your needs.
One of the greatest benefits is that you can undergo multiple procedures in just one surgery, since these techniques can be combined to give you your desired results. There’s no need to go to separate appointments to have them all done at different times, and, most importantly, there’s only one period of downtime for recovery.
Once their bodies are restored, most women say they feel a sense of being renewed and they have their self-confidence back. Studies have found that weight gained after pregnancy and childbirth can cause depression and lack of sex drive. But a mommy makeover can reverse these feelings and refresh and revitalize your body!
