Has pregnancy changed the shape and contours of your body? A mommy makeover can help bring back your pre-baby body shape. It’s an effective way to address the body changes brought on by pregnancy. But what procedures are typically involved in a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is a combination of several procedures that are done to restore the appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy.
Common procedures include:
- Breast lift/Breast augmentation
Pregnancy and breast feeding can affect both the shape and volume of the breasts. If the breasts are droopy, a breast lift is done to get rid of excess skin and elevate the breasts so that they look perkier, and more youthful. However, if the breasts are deflated and have lost their shape, breast augmentation with implants can improve their shape and size.
- Tummy tuck
After giving birth, many women are left with excess skin and fat on the abdomen that they can’t seem to lose with diet and exercise. A tummy tuck can eliminate the excess skin and fatty tissue, and tone the stomach.
The tummy isn’t the only area that may have excess fat after pregnancy. Some women have pockets of diet-resistant fat in areas such as the upper arms, hips, and thighs. Liposuction can removes these fat bulges. The procedure involves the use of a cannula that is inserted below the skin, to break up the fatty tissue. Afterwards, the fat cells that are loosed are extracted with the attached vacuum.
