Giving birth can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life. However, it can also leave a woman’s body with unwanted changes that are not easily altered or fixed, like drooping breasts, enlarged areoles, pockets of fat in the abdomen, stretch marks, and extra skin that sags around the tummy that no amount of exercising or dieting can fix.
The good news is that you can alter these things with a set of procedures tailored to help mommies: the Mommy Makeover. What better time to do something for you than the month dedicated to mothers?
What Procedures are Involved in A Mommy Makeover?
Breast Lift: After pregnancy, your breast can appear to sag, lose volume, become uneven, and enlarge the areolas. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is often performed in a mommy makeover to help reverse these changes to the breasts and return a youthful shape and lift.
Breast Reduction: Many women find that their breasts swell during pregnancy and remain a larger size than desired even after childbirth. Breast reduction surgery is often used in this case to help return the breast to a small size. A reduction can help to alleviate common symptoms of large breasts, such as back pain, improper posture, rashes, and low self-esteem.
Tummy Tuck: The abdomen is the area that is often the most affected by pregnancy, and it’s also the most unforgiving. The stomach muscles are weakened by stretching and can leave loose skin, stretch marks, and a straighter waistline. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can help restore a flatter, smooth tummy.
Liposuction: After giving birth, you might notice pockets of fat in the lower abdomen, hips, and backside that will not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can help to sculpt the body after pregnancy by removing unwanted areas of stubborn fast from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttock, and thighs.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
For those who are finished having children and desire to alter some of the changes to their body after pregnancy, a mommy makeover is right for you. While your body can still successfully carry a child after your procedure(s), your pregnancy may reverse some of the effects of your treatment and may require additional operations later on.
Why is May A Great Time for Your Mommy Makeover?
May is right in the heart of spring, and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, what better way to treat yourself than with a full body makeover? You can rest comfortably in the cool weather, and with the late spring rain showers, you have plenty of time to rest indoors while you recover. Also, by the time summer starts, you’ll be fully recovered and ready to show off your new body at the beach or poolside.
