After having children, you might want to have the body that you had in your pre-motherhood years. A mommy makeover can help you achieve this look as it’s a process that involves multiple surgical procedures at one time. A benefit of the procedure is that you can work with our doctor to customize it so that you have the appearance that you want and that works for your body and health.
When you’re pregnant, the muscles in your abdomen are stretched in ways that you might not even realize. Pregnancy can often result in a flabby appearance that you’re not happy with and that makes wearing certain types of clothes a bit uncomfortable. A mommy makeover can give you a flatter abdomen that you are proud to show to others. This is achieved through a tummy tuck. Loose skin is removed, and the muscles in your abdomen are tightened before your skin is pulled over the muscles. You’ll usually notice dramatic results that give you the abdomen that you had before children.
Another component of a mommy makeover is breast surgery. They can begin to sag after breastfeeding and with age if you don’t do anything about the way that your breasts look as you get older. An augmentation or a breast lift can bring life back to your breasts by enhancing their shape and volume. You can talk to our doctor about the size of the breasts that you want that you would be comfortable with as well as the type of implants that you want if you’re having an augmentation performed.
The fat rolls that are on the side of your abdomen or on your thighs can be removed through the process of liposuction. A small cannula is inserted through an incision to remove excess fat cells. A benefit of this procedure is that the fat cells won’t come back once they are removed. The procedure gives you a contoured look that is natural.
During your mommy makeover, you can also undergo a breast lift or vaginal rejuvenation. This procedure is completely customizable, meaning you can pick which procedures would benefit you the most. Most women opt for a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation. Keep in mind that a mommy makeover does involve more than one surgery, which means that the recovery time could be a bit longer than you would experience with only one procedure.
