When the doctor placed your baby in your hands for the first time, you finally understood what the last nine months was all about. Every change that happened to your body was worth having this precious gift in your life. You don’t regret a single minute, but you do want to restore your body to the way it was before pregnancy changed everything. You’ve been patient with yourself. You gave yourself time to heal after the delivery. You increased your amount of exercise once it was safe. You made sure to choose foods that are good for you. Slowly, you saw the excess weight from pregnancy sliding away. You can wear your old pants again. There’s only one problem. Your abdomen won’t tighten up like you would like it to and your breasts look like they deflated. A mommy makeover could be right for you.
Who is a Good Candidate?
A mommy makeover is recommended for new mothers who have reached their goal weight, but can’t get the results they would like to see for their breasts and abs on their own. If you are only looking at some excess fat around your midsection, a mommy makeover isn’t the answer. Liposuction is ideal when you have a localized pocket of resistant fat. A mommy makeover combines procedures to target two trouble spots that are a problem for most new moms. Getting breast implants to help you restore a full bust is one part of the procedure. The second part focuses on your abdomen with a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck removes unwanted fat, trims away excess skin, and tightens up the muscles of your abs. If you are looking at flabby skin around your midsection that won’t snap back like it should, a tummy tuck can help. You should consider waiting to have this procedure if you plan on getting pregnant in the future.
You Can Give Your Body a Comeback
You can have your new baby and get a beautiful body too. If you have tried to trim your abdomen without success and you are not happy with how your breasts have changed, a mommy makeover could make a difference for you.
