Have you experienced major changes in your body after giving birth? You’re not alone, most women undergo changes in their body after pregnancy that they struggle to cope with, but a mommy makeover can help. It can boost your self-esteem and change your life. But what procedures are included in a mommy makeover.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures women undergo to restore their pre-pregnancy figure. The operations may be done in a single session but it depends on the type of procedures being done, as well as the health of the patient.
What Procedures Are in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover typically includes the following:
- Breast augmentation: After pregnancy and breastfeeding many women experience a noticeable loss of volume in the breasts, breast augmentation will restore volume, and make the breasts fuller and shapelier.
- Breast lift: The breasts may also become droopy and saggy after pregnancy and nursing. A breast lift elevates the breasts by removing excess skin, and tightening the breast tissue.
- Tummy Tuck: A sagging tummy is another issue many women have to deal with after pregnancy. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is designed to remove the excess skin and fat, and repair the underlying abdominal muscles.
- Liposuction: Liposuction gets rid of stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the arms, thighs, and buttocks.
A mommy makeover can take anywhere from 3-5 hours to complete, depending on the combination of procedures being done (click here to learn more).
