After childbirth, many women find themselves looking in the mirror and longing for the body they used to have before pregnancy. A proper diet and daily exercise don’t always offer the results you’re hoping for, but luckily, there’s another way: a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is a cheaper way to have multiple complementary procedures done, all of which contribute to the patient looking like they did before pregnancy. You can even customize the package based on your aesthetic goals. During your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, you’ll discuss your options and find out more about the pros and cons of each procedure.
Breasts grow dramatically during pregnancy and often shrink just as dramatically after lactation has ended; because of this, they can appear deflated and can develop stretch marks and loose skin. To fight these unfortunate issues, breast lifts and augmentations are commonly selected as mommy makeover surgeries. You can even get a breast lift at the same time as a breast augmentation; this is called an augmentopexy.
The uterus also grows dramatically during pregnancy to accommodate the fetus. As a result, the ab muscles are pushed apart and forward. Along with excess body fat, this contributes to a post-pregnancy flabby stomach. A mommy makeover with a tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, and/or liposuction is a great way to get rid of that belly and give yourself tight, taut abdominal muscles. And when done with breast procedures like augmentation and lifts, they create proportions that look more balanced.
It’s important to note that you should not to get a mommy makeover until you’re sure that you won’t be having any more children. You should also give yourself enough time for your body to return to a normal state. You’ll need to allow time for your uterus to shrink back to normal size, and you should also be done with breastfeeding.
