Motherhood is a beautiful thing but comes with its highs and lows. New mothers experience the joy of bringing new life into the world, but also experience the frustrations that come with being a parent. Another set of challenges women face are the physical toll that pregnancy takes on the body. With each pregnancy, a woman’s body will store fat more efficiently (you may see new fat in new places), the breasts can enlarge and stretch (creating sagging), and the abdominal muscles can become weak (stretched from a growing fetus). Thankfully, a mommy makeover is the perfect procedure to help address these issues to restore confidence to mothers of all ages. Read on to learn more about what this procedure can do for you.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can restore a woman’s body to its pre-baby figure. This procedure is highly customizable, and may include the following procedures:
A tummy tuck can address sagging abdominal skin and weakened abdominal muscles. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and abdominal muscles are tightened for a slimmer abdominal profile. Liposuction is often done along with a tummy tuck to eliminate excess fat deposits.
While liposuction is used along with a tummy tuck, it can also be used to slim other areas of the body with excess fatty deposits. This can help to restore your naturally-youthful contours, so you can feel more confident in your body.
Breast augmentation is the most popular form of plastic surgery to date. This procedure can increase the size of breasts that have shrunk after breast-feeding using breast implants, and correct asymmetrical breasts as well. This procedure is also often done in conjunction with a breast lift.
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts can become saggy. A breast lift is performed to reposition the breasts to a more youthful position.
As you can see, a mommy makeover can address many issues that can take toll on a woman’s body during pregnancy. Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Gawley will tailor your Mommy Makeover to target the areas where you need help the most and to satisfy your personal goals.
