Moms are always giving to others without much thought for themselves, but more of them are now taking time out to get a mommy makeover. If you think a mommy makeover would be right for you, but you have been wondering what are some of the important things you should know about it, it’s time to find out (learn more).
Mommy makeover procedures
A mommy makeover refers to a set of procedures women seek out to get their pre-baby figure back. It typically focuses on correcting some of the physical changes that affect the breasts and abdomen.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding often cause the breasts to sag and deflate. A breast lift is usually recommended to raise the position of the breasts. Some women may also require breast augmentation to increase breast size.
After pregnancy, most women are left with extra abdominal skin. A tummy tuck is done to make the tummy flatter and firmer by removing excess skin, and tightening the stomach muscles.
Liposuction may also be included in the treatment plan to get rid of areas of localized fat in places such as the thighs, arms, and flanks.
What you should know about a mommy makeover
Women contemplating a mommy makeover should be in good health, and should have completed childbearing and breast feeding.
Mommy makeover candidates should be within a few pounds of their ideal weight. Weight fluctuations after the procedure can undo the aesthetic benefits gained.
The post-op healing period is very important to the overall success of your mommy makeover. It’s therefore important to take it easy, and ask for help with the kids and the chores around the home.
