Often, moms can feel underappreciated and overwhelmed by the constant strive to balance being a parent, having a social life, maintaining their romantic life and leading in their career. Moms can find themselves so busy they have little to no time to get their pre-pregnancy body back. For busy moms who have lost their confidence in their body, a Mommy Makeover may be the perfect option. Here’s what you should know.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
It’s a personalized procedure aimed to fix any unwanted changes caused by pregnancy. The procedure combines different surgeries targeted to restore the loss of volume in the breasts due to breastfeeding, fix sagging breasts, get rid of excess skin in the abdomen, and remove unwanted love handles or back rolls.
Some surgeries that may include
After having a baby, moms can find excess skin on their stomach that may not go away with just exercise. A tummy tuck removes excess skin leaving patients with a contoured and flatter stomach. For patients who are struggling to lose the baby weight, they can get liposuction which removes stubborn stomach fat by using an aspirator attached to a long, thin tube called a cannula.
Due to breastfeeding, it’s common for moms to experience excess sagging in their breasts. This can affect their self esteem but patient’s have options. A breast lift can raise and restore the shape of the breasts to give them a more youthful look. For patients who want volume, they can get a breast lift combined with breast implants to enlarge their breasts. These procedures do not affect the patient’s ability to breastfeed.
Because a Mommy Makeover involves multiple surgeries, the recovery time varies from patient to patient. It’s important for patients to follow post-operative instructions and avoid strenuous activity.
