The Basics of a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy can be an exciting and beautiful time in a woman’s life. However, it can also result in many changes in the body. Oftentimes, these changes are stubborn and hard to correct with exercise alone. This is why many women choose to undergo the mommy makeover, a collection of plastic surgery procedures to help correct the changes caused by pregnancy.
What’s Included in a Mommy Makeover?
During pregnancy, a woman’s body stores fat more efficiently, which may lead to extra weight gain. Liposuction can help to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat on almost any area of the body, including the waist, abdomen, thighs, flanks, upper arms, and more!
Hormonal changes also occur, which change the size of the breasts. Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts may return to their original size, but the effects may vary. Some women find that their breasts deflate and are even smaller than before, while others are left with stretched breasts. A mommy makeover can include a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction, depending on your individual needs. These breast procedures can help to create breasts that are more proportionate to your body for a boost in confidence!
The most noticeable changes are often in the abdominal area, as pregnancy stretches out the abdominal muscles and skin. This can result in weakened or separated abdominal muscles, which are nearly impossible to improve with exercise alone. A tummy tuck can help to eliminate excess skin on the abdomen, as well as tighten the abdominal muscles. Liposuction is often included to eliminate stubborn belly fat.
