Pregnancy and childbirth can bring lots of new, exciting changes to your life, as well as your body. Throughout pregnancy, you can benefit from having a vibrant, glowing skin tone and larger, fuller breasts. If you gained any excess weight while you were pregnant, you may have to work on exercising and eating healthy, nutritious foods to get back your pre-pregnancy body. However, some women experience difficulty with losing the amount of weight needed to slim down, or find that their breasts have become loose and saggy as a result of nursing.
When good nutrition and regular exercise fail to work at helping you slim down, you may be considered an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover.
What’s involved in a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures that can help return your body to the way it looked prior to your becoming pregnant. The traditional mommy makeover combines liposuction with a breast lift, but moms can mix and match procedures based on their personal goals. Moms can combine liposuction with breast augmentation or breast lift, or can replace liposuction with tummy tuck surgery. Some moms may even undergo all four procedures to achieve the slimmest and most youthful look possible. Mommy makeover candidates who are unsure about the procedures they should have can consult with their cosmetic surgeons for professional advice and recommendations.
What are the benefits of having a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover can help restore your confidence and self-esteem if pregnancy and childbirth have altered your physical appearance. Liposuction and tummy tuck can help your stomach, hips, and thighs look slimmer and flatter, whereas breast augmentation can enhance your breast size and breast lift surgery can restore volume and buoyancy to your breasts. Many women report that a mommy makeover often leaves them feeling happier and more confident about themselves, and about their ability to take care of their families.
Am I an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover?
You may be an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover if pregnancy has resulted in unwanted changes to your body, such as sagging, deflated breasts or excess skin in your abdominal region.
If you meet any of the following criteria, you may be an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover:
- Your breasts have lost volume and appear saggy or uneven in size.
- Your breasts look out of proportion compared to the rest of your body.
- Your nipples point downward, and your areolas appear larger and stretched out.
- Your skin displays signs of stretch marks.
- You have loose, excess skin in your abdominal region.
- You have excess fat deposits in regions such as your midsection, hips, and thighs.
