Becoming a mother is one of life’s greatest moments, and while your children are your greatest blessing, there’s no doubt that pregnancy & motherhood can take a toll on your figure. While becoming a mom has many rewards; droopy breasts, extra tummy skin, and stretch marks are not one of them. Fortunately, a mommy makeover procedure can help get your body back to where it was pre-baby.
A mommy makeover is a plastic surgery procedure that targets the main areas affected by pregnancy to rejuvenate the figure. There are multiple procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover, including:
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Breast augmentation
- Tummy tuck
- Stretch mark removal
The most common procedures performed as part of the mommy makeover are a tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation, and liposuction, but more or less can be done depending on your specific body needs and desired results. A tummy tucks get rid of excess skin on the abdomen, creates a more hourglass figure, and can remove stretch marks. A breast lift with an augmentation can help reduce the effects of breastfeeding by lifting the breasts and giving them back their volume and firmness. Liposuction can reduce some of the stubborn fat that was gained during pregnancy and the postpartum period.
While the recovery phase will vary depending on your needs and the specific procedures you had performed, most mommy makeovers require at least 2-3 weeks of rest following the procedure. During this time you may not be able to lift heavy objects, or your children, so it is important to have extra help at home.
