Having a child is an experience you will never forget. Unfortunately for many women, childbirth leaves them with stubborn fat and loose skin they can’t seem to get rid of. If you are one of these women you might be considering plastic surgery to get you back to your pre-pregnancy body. With a mommy makeover, you can combine and customize your procedures based on the areas you would like to target. Read on to learn more about the procedures that are often included in a mommy makeover.
After pregnancy, you might notice your breasts have lost the volume and shape they used to have. You can restore your pre-pregnancy breasts with a breast augmentation. A breast augmentation uses implants to create fuller, perkier, more symmetrical breasts.
Often combined with a breast augmentation, a breast lift removes excess skin from the loss of volume and sagging breasts after pregnancy. The results are youthful, well-shaped breasts.
A tummy tuck is a popular procedure to include in the mommy makeover because many women experience excess skin in their mid-section childbirth. This loose skin can be impossible to get rid of with exercise and diet alone. With a tummy tuck, loose skin and tissue are removed and the area is tightened to give you a toned abdominal silhouette.
Stubborn fat can be present on any part of the body after childbirth. If leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t enough to get rid of it, you might turn to liposuction. Liposuction can target the hips and buttocks, thighs, abdomen and waist, breasts, and upper arms. This body procedure is a good one to combine with a breast augmentation or tummy tuck to really tone and tighten the area.
Mommy makeover procedures aren’t limited to this list. Talking with your surgeon can help you decide what procedures are best for you.
