The Numerous Options For Your Mommy Makeover

Having a child can be such a fulfilling and enriching experience. The joy it brings is almost incomparable. However, pregnancy can cause the body to change in a variety of ways that won’t be too appealing to a lot of women.

After giving birth to a new baby, many moms experience loose excess skin and fat, stretch marks, significant changes in weight. If these changes are upsetting to the woman experiencing them, there are different surgical options available.

The most popular plastic surgery for new moms is the mommy makeover surgery. This makeover is a complex surgery that involves a combination of different procedures. It can help a new mom reclaim her pre-pregnancy body.

The common areas that are affected by pregnancy and the hormonal changes that come with it are the abdomen, breasts, thighs, and sometimes other parts of the body that are prone to accumulating fat deposits. While exercising and eating healthy are highly beneficial for maintaining a healthy and fit body, they aren’t always enough. In situations like this, a mommy makeover is the perfect solution.

There are times when exercise and a healthy diet aren’t enough to get rid of stubborn fat or sagging skin. So, despite doing everything you can, it may prove to be really difficult to get your body back in shape. If this is something that you’re experiencing, a mommy makeover may be the perfect solution for you. It can be fully customized to fit your unique needs.

Improving the Breasts with the Mommy Makeover

A surgery that modifies the breasts is not advised while you are still nursing your child or if you are planning to have another one. However, once your child has moved on to eating solids and you are sure you won’t be having another child, you can talk to your doctor about the breast enhancement options available to you.

There are many different issues that moms face after having a child. Some may notice that their breasts become enlarged, giving them a top heavy appearance. The fluctuations in weight may also lead to saggy skin and fatty deposits that cause the breasts to develop an unattractive droopy look. In addition to these issues, the breasts may also reduce in size, which changes a woman’s proportions.

To solve these problems, there are different types of plastic surgeries that a woman can undergo to improve the look of her breasts. They include:

· Breast reduction surgery
· Breast lift
· Breast Augmentation

Include an Abdominoplasty in Your Mommy Makeover

The skin in the abdominal areas stretches the most during pregnancy and a lot of women struggle to get their tummy back to its normal position. Since the skin has been stretched to such an extent for so long, it often loses it’s elasticity. This can result in the development of loose skin in the abdominal area.

Women may also experience the accumulation of stubborn fat in the abdominal area. This is fat that proves to be difficult to remove, even after doing all that you can to get rid of it. If you’re experiencing these issues to a minor extent, you can undergo a mini tummy tuck surgery. But, if you have a high degree of sagging skin and fatty deposits, the traditional tummy tuck is the solution for you.

In cases where there is a lot of excess fat to get rid of, a liposuction may be performed to help eliminate it.

Other Areas of the Body that can be Treated with a Mommy Makeover

The thighs are another place that women may experience stubborn fat deposits that refuse to go away. A thigh lift would reduce excess skin and fat, allowing you to flaunt your legs again. If you have excess skin and fat in the upper arms that make you appear heavier, an arm lift can help solve that issue.

For patients who have sagging skin and excess fat in multiple parts of the body, a body lift may prove to be the most beneficial.

It is important to note that this makeover only takes care of stubborn fat and you still need to maintain a healthy regime. Having a baby shouldn’t mean that you have to compromise on the shape of your body. Mommy makeover can help you to regain the body you desire and your self-confidence.
