Having a baby is a wonderful experience! However, being pregnant and breastfeeding can take a toll on your body. For many women, the changes in their body make it hard for them to feel sexy and confident, even after the baby weight is gone. This is why the “Mommy Makeover” was created.
A Mommy Makeover is a term that is used to describe a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures that can be used to help women get their pre-baby bodies back after pregnancy. Since each woman has individual needs and concerns, a Mommy Makeover can be tailored to each individual. However, a typical Mommy Makeover consists of some combination of the following procedures:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation
- Breast Lift
The major changes to a woman’s body that can persist after pregnancy are to the breasts and the abdomen. A breast lift alone or a breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation can help to shape breasts that have become flattened or drooping as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. A tummy tuck alone or a tummy tuck in conjunction with liposuction can be used to treat stretched skin and excess fat that develops in the abdomen as a result of pregnancy.
Mommy Makeovers are currently being offered by many plastic and cosmetic surgery practices all over the country and have become very popular among women. If you have recently had a baby and are unhappy with your post-pregnancy body, contact a qualified plastic surgeon in your local area to find out if a Mommy Makeover is right for you. After a thorough evaluation, your plastic surgeon can recommend the appropriate surgical treatment or combination of treatments to help you regain your confidence and your self-esteem.
