You’ve heard your friends talking about a Mommy Makeover and think it might be something that can help you, but you want to understand exactly what it is first. This procedure is not a magic solution for the changes that happen to your body due to pregnancy. It is a combination of surgical treatments that can be performed by our plastic surgeon to help you sculpt your body. A Mommy Makeover is designed to help you reclaim your pre-baby figure once again. Give yourself some time for recovery and complete healing to see what a Mommy Makeover can do for you.
Why Consider a Mommy Makeover?
Whether you have only been pregnant once or you have had several pregnancies, you watch your body go through serious changes every time. As the baby develops, your stomach is stretched beyond belief. Weight gain is a part of the package as well. Once you have delivered your baby, your weight will start to go down again, but your stomach may not return to the shape it was once in, even with exercise.
The same can be said about your breasts. While you are waiting nine months to see your baby, your breasts will begin to prepare for the arrival of your little one. They will grow larger and become heavy. If you choose to breastfeed after pregnancy, your breasts will continue to be larger than they used to be. Once breastfeeding is over, your breasts will shrink down again and may even appear to be deflated. You’re going to need help to get them in shape again.
What Procedures Are Performed During a Mommy Makeover?
When our plastic surgeon performs a Mommy Makeover for you, it will be customized to meet your needs. If your breasts have lost volume, breast implants can help you, while a breast lift can raise them up to make them perky once again. When it comes to your stomach, a tummy tuck can help you to have that firm, smooth stomach once again. Excess fat can be suctioned out, extra skin will be removed, the muscles will be tightened and our doctor will finish off by pulling the remaining skin tight to give you that flat stomach you want. When your procedure is over, you will have the body you used to have while you still enjoy holding your baby in your arms.
