If you’re unhappy with some of the changes in your body after pregnancy and breastfeeding and you’d like to get them fixed, a mommy makeover may be the right option for you. But what procedures are part of a mommy makeover.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that a woman undergoes to help restore her pre-pregnancy appearance. Many women struggle with weight gain, excess abdominal skin, stretched abdominal muscles,and droopy/deflated breasts, after pregnancy and breast feeding. These are the issues addressed by a mommy makeover.
What procedures are part of a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a customized procedure that is done to fit the needs of each patient. Common procedures include the following:
- Breast augmentation
Breast augmentation(augmentation mammoplasty)increases the size of the breasts with the use of saline or silicone implants. The breasts often lose volume and become deflated after childbirth, but breast augmentation will restore their shape and firmness.
- Breast Lift
A breast lift (mastopexy) is done to address sagging breasts. Excess skin and tissue are removed to lift the breasts, and provide a more youthful appearance. Mastopexy is sometimes done in combination with breast augmentation if patients need volume.
- Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck will deal with the excess abdominal skin that diet and exercise can’t remove. It will also tighten the abdominal muscles that are often stretched during pregnancy.
Liposuction will get rid of any stubborn fat in areas such as the tummy, thighs, and buttocks.
