Have you been struggling to get back your pre-pregnancy figure? Rigorous exercise and dieting can only get you as far as strengthening the muscles and reducing some fat. But if you have stretched sagging skin, pockets of stubborn fat, and issues like stretched abdominal muscles, exercise and diet will not be enough.
Have You Heard Of A Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring and breast enhancement procedures that are offered to mothers who want to get back in shape. The procedures chose for each mommy makeover are customized based on the unique needs of each individual patient.
A mommy makeover addresses those parts of the body that change drastically post-childbirth. Several procedures are included in a mommy makeover that concentrate mainly on the breasts and tummy.
The procedures are typically performed as a single-stage operation which means there is only one recovery period you have to go through.
What Procedures Are Included In A Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers include those procedures that can restore the contours of the body that have been affected by pregnancy and breast feeding.
The procedures that are included in a mommy makeover can include:
Breast Augmentation: A surgery performed to increase the size of the breasts using breast implants. Also called augmentation mammoplasty. This procedure involves changing the size, shape, and contour of your breast by placing breast implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast augmentation is mostly done to add volume to the breast that is lost post breastfeeding.
Breast Lift: Also called Mastopexy, a breast lift is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the shape of the breast. It modifies the size, contour, and elevation of the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues.
Tummy Tuck: Also known as abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that removes extra fat, tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall, and removes excess skin to get a flat and contoured abdomen.
Liposuction: Liposuction, commonly known as ‘lipo’, is a cosmetic procedure that contours the body by removing fat deposits from areas that won’t change with diet and exercise. The fat is surgically removed from the body through several small incisions.
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
If you are a mother and you are no longer breastfeeding your child, then you may be an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover. As a doctor, your plastic surgeon will review your medical conditions, evaluate your current health, and ask about the areas of your body you want to address before determining the most suitable procedures to be included in your mommy makeover. It is also important to have realistic expectations.
