Pregnancy and childbirth are remarkable experiences, but they can have a life changing impact on a woman’s body. Stretch marks and loose abdominal skin are just some of the effects that can occur, and unfortunately they can’t be fixed with improved nutrition and exercise. That’s why so many women are opting for mommy makeover surgery. But what is involved in a mommy makeover.
What is involved in a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeover surgery is a customizable combination of procedures that are intended to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. Surgery is designed to correct the changes that occur as a result of having children.
The procedures are tailored to suit the specific needs of each patient, and typically include breast augmentation or breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
- Breast lift. Elevates droopy breasts in order to make them perkier, and more youthful.
- Breast augmentation. Improves the fullness of the breasts,by increasing the cup size. This is done with the use of breast implants.
- Tummy Tuck. Tightens loose abdominal muscles, and also gets rid of excess skin.
- Liposuction. Eliminates extra belly fat.
What is the recovery like?
The recovery period for a mommy makeover varies, as it depends on the procedures done. Patients should also remember that the recovery rate for each individual will be different.
Are you a good candidate?
If you are fully recovered from pregnancy and breast feeding, and finished having children, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. You should also be in good health, and at a stable weight.
