Pregnancy really takes a toll on the body that can last a lifetime. Droopy breasts, stretch marks, unwanted fat, and excess skin can make mothers lose confidence in their figures.
If you’re a mom wondering whether you’ll ever get some semblance of your pre-mom bod back, the answer is: it’s possible! A mommy makeover can help restore your body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Women can now reclaim their before-baby bodies with the help of a board-certified surgeon and a leading cosmetic surgery center.
Three Parts of a Mommy Makeover
Three procedures are popular with mothers who want to improve their post-pregnancy bodies:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast lifting
While each procedure by itself produces dramatic results, these three together help women restore their bodies in just one surgery session.
The Tummy Tuck
After pregnancy or rapid weight loss, excess skin and fat can plague the abdominal area. The tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, flattens the abdomen.
For this procedure, your surgeon will make an incision near your pubic region, insert a tube to remove excess fat (liposuction), then tuck your skin.
Your abdominal muscles will also be tightened during a tummy tuck. Skin complexion heals with minimal scarring when an experienced surgeon performs the procedure.
One of the most well-known procedures for removing excess unwanted fat is liposuction. During liposuction, the plastic surgeon inserts a very thin cannula into a small incision to suction fat from an area of the body to create a slimmer silhouette.
Liposuction is very popular for use on upper arms, thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, and back.
Sometimes known as a mastopexy, a breast lift does exactly what it claims to do: lifts your breast. This procedure also enhances the natural contours of the breasts.
Excess skin in the breasts gets removed during the breast lifting procedure, and your surgeon will tighten the remaining skin tissue to reshape and support your new breast contours. Women can enjoy a more youthful, perky bust after breast lifting.
Ideal Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Almost any woman who wants to regain some of her pre-pregnancy firmness can be a candidate for these three procedures. Ideally, you have finished breastfeeding and childbearing. Candidates should also be in good overall health.
Consider the mommy makeover if you have not been able to transform your body on your own, even with proper exercise and dieting.
What’s a Super Mommy Makeover?
Many women are also interested in what’s known as a “super mommy makeover.” This is a term used for a group of cosmetic procedures customized by the patient.
One example might be a tummy tuck with a Brazilian butt lift, along with a breast augmentation. The super mommy makeover is designed to help women reverse some of the effects of pregnancy and aging on the body and the face.
