Mommy Makeover Procedures
After bringing a child into the world, you deserve to get your body back. A mommy makeover can be combined with additional cosmetic procedures to boost your confidence and self-esteem, including skin tighteners, cellulite treatment, and stretch mark treatments.
Procedures typically part of a customized mommy makeover include:
Pregnancy puts a great deal of stress on the midsection. It can leave you with loose, hanging skin and weakened abdominal muscles or split muscles that cannot be corrected with diet and exercise. In a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon removes excess fat and skin from the belly and tightens weak abdominal muscles to create a flatter, firmer, smoother tummy.
Motherhood can have drastic effects on the breasts. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding cause the breasts to become larger (and fluctuate in size in the case of breastfeeding). When it’s over and hormones decrease, the breast tissue deflates, leaving your breasts looking saggy and old.
After pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, many women are dismayed to find that their once beautiful breasts have lost volume and now droop and hang. Breast enhancement procedures (breast lift and/or breast augmentation with implants) can restore fullness and a perkier, more youthful appearance to the breasts.
Liposuction is often performed in combination with a tummy tuck and breast enhancement in a mommy makeover. It can add definition to the abdomen and accentuate the waist so that it blends naturally with the new firmer, flatter belly. Trimming the waist and flanks can also complement a fuller, higher breast profile created with breast enhancement procedures.
