Have you tried and failed to get your pre-baby body back? A mommy makeover may be the solution for you. The body rarely returns to its pre-baby appearance after pregnancy and breastfeeding, and that’s why many women are turning to surgery to reclaim their body. But what treatments are included in a mommy makeover.
Mommy makeover treatments
Pregnancy leaves a lasting effect on the body, particularly the breasts and the tummy, so these are the areas that a mommy makeover tends to focus on.
A mommy makeover typically includes the following treatments:
- Breast augmentation: Some women’s breasts shrink and look deflated after pregnancy and breastfeeding, but breast augmentation will restore volume and shape. Breast augmentation adds volume and increases breast size with the use of saline or silicone implants.
- Breast lift: Sagging breasts are a common concern after pregnancy due to stretched breast skin, but this can be corrected with a breast lift. A breast lift gets rid of the excess skin and leaves the breasts perkier and more youthful-looking.
- Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck removes excess skin on the abdominal area, and tightens the underlying muscles that are frequently stretched or separated during pregnancy.
- Liposuction: After childbirth, many women have stubborn fat bulges that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction removes these stubborn fat deposits, and creates a sculpted silhouette.
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women that are at their goal weight, are finished having kids, and are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the future (click here to learn more).
