Are you unhappy with your post-baby body? If you are, you may want to consider a mommy makeover. A woman’s body goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy and often looks a lot different after childbirth, but a mommy makeover can help your body bounce back. But what procedures are included in a mommy makeover.
What is a mommy makeover
A mommy makeover is a set of procedures that are done to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body, and is customized to fit the unique needs of each patient. Mommy makeover procedures usually focus on the breasts and abdomen, which are the areas most moms are concerned about.
What Procedures Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover typically includes the following procedures:
- Breast augmentation: The breasts tend to lose volume and look deflated after pregnancy and breastfeeding, but breast augmentation can restore volume and shape. This is typically done by using silicone or saline implants to add volume.
- Breast lift (mastopexy): A breast lift is done to elevate and firm sagging breasts. During a breast lift the surgeon will remove excess skin, and reposition the nipple-areolar complex to a more youthful position.
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty): The abdominal skin often stretches to accommodate the growing baby, but it does not snap back into shape after pregnancy. A tummy tuck gets rid of excess skin in the abdominal area and tightens the underlying muscles, making the abdomen flatter and firmer.
- Liposuction: Stubborn fat that does not respond to exercise can be removed using liposuction.
