Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

Becoming a mother is one of the most rewarding experiences a female can have. While the experience is definitely life-changing, it can also cause changes to occur in the body. Weight gain and abdominal stretching are extremely common during pregnancy, and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to lose volume and sag. If you are ecstatic about your bundle of joy, but not very happy with your post-baby body, a mommy makeover may be able to help.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a grouping of individualized procedures done during one surgery. Not only does this technique cut down on recovery time, it can also be easier on the wallet. The grouping of procedures performed will differ for each woman, depending on her individual “problem areas.” These procedures can include a breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Which Procedures Should You Choose?

Because each woman’s body reacts differently to pregnancy, no two women will require the exact same mommy makeover surgery. If you are unhappy with your sagging breasts, you may be able to benefit from a breast lift. If volume in also a cause of unhappiness, a breast augmentation can also be done to help augment the breasts. Many women find that weight gain and stretching of the abdomen can cause excess skin to appear on the lower tummy. A tummy tuck can eliminate this excess skin, as well as tighten weakened abdominal muscles to create a tighter, slimmer abdomen profile. Lastly, liposuction can help to eliminate those stubborn fat deposits that just won’t seem to budge with diet and exercise. Any of these procedures can be combined to create your own unique mommy makeover procedure.
