Whether you have had one baby or more than one over the years, there is no doubt that pregnancy puts your body through the wringer. It’s a challenging experience that you don’t regret for a single minute when you think of the rewards of motherhood. However, there is a downside when your figure doesn’t bounce back to those pre-baby days.
Pregnancy can leave your stomach stretched out with excess skin and fat, as well as weak muscles that don’t respond to your fitness regimen. You don’t even want to get started on what pregnancy has done to your breasts. First, your breasts became extremely enlarged during pregnancy and the aftermath when you were breastfeeding. Once breastfeeding was over, your breasts seemed to become deflated and sag down, making you feel older than your years.
You may be the perfect candidate for a Mommy Makeover. However, before making the decision to have this procedure, you should know what to expect.
What are Popular Procedures in a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover usually targets the stomach and the breasts. When it comes to the stomach, a tummy tuck and liposuction are usually combined for the best results. Our plastic surgeon may begin with liposuction to suction out any unwanted, excess stores of fat in your abdomen.
During a tummy tuck, excess skin is removed, the muscles of your abdomen are tightened up and the upper flap of skin on your abdomen is pulled down tight. In the end, you’ll have that smooth, tight stomach that you want so badly.
When considering your breasts, our doctor will discuss your goals. If you only want to increase the volume of your breasts, breast implants may be the answer. If you feel your breasts just need a lift, a breast lift will raise them into a higher position and make them perkier. You can also opt for a combination approach in which you end up with fuller breasts that have been raised to give you your ideal figure.
Is a Mommy Makeover the Best Choice for You?
Before you sign up for your Mommy Makeover, it’s important to take a few considerations into account. The best candidates are in overall good health. If you have gained a great deal of weight after pregnancy, you need to take control of your weight before having any kind of surgical procedures. Find an exercise plan that is combined with a healthy eating plan to reach your desired weight.
