After pregnancy some women find that their body does not revert to its pre-baby shape, and they are left with excess fat and droopy breasts that they don’t recognize. However, a mommy makeover can fix all that. But what exactly is a mommy makeover (click here), and how can it improve your appearance.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover refers to a number of procedures that women undergo in an effort to restore their pre-pregnancy body. A mommy makeover usually consists of breast augmentation/breast lift, and a tummy tuck, because the breasts and abdomen are the two areas women are most unhappy with after pregnancy. These procedures can be done in one surgery.
Mommy makeover procedures:
- Breast augmentation: This is especially beneficial for women that have lost volume in the breasts, as an implant is used to restore lost volume.
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy): This involves the removal of excess skin, in order to elevate and tighten the breasts, to make them firmer and perkier.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): This involves the tightening of the abdominal muscles, by removing redundant skin.
- Liposuction is sometimes done to get rid of pockets of fat in areas like the thighs, abdomen, and upper arms.
When to do a mommy makeover
Doctors recommend that women don’t do a mommy makeover until they are finished having children. They also recommend that women try to lose some of the weight on their own, because a mommy makeover should not be seen as an alternative to exercising and eating a healthy diet.
