Nine months of pregnancy and the nursing that follows can take its toll on your body. Pregnancy is a beautiful time of a woman’s life, but it can leave your body looking completely different in the end. A mommy makeover is a great way to get your body back and enjoy your life as a mother.
Over the nine months of pregnancy, your body undergoes several dramatic changes. Typically, women gain anywhere from 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy and the stomach stretches itself out several inches. After giving birth, your body often never quite returns back to its original shape.
How a Mommy Makeover Helps
“Mommy makeover” is the popular name for the cosmetic procedure that some plastic surgeons offer to mothers looking to take back their pre-baby bodies. A mommy makeover is the combination of one or more cosmetic procedures into a single surgery to fix the various problem areas that pregnancy can often leave behind by reclaiming your body and restoring your breasts.
Most mommy makeovers involve a tummy tuck to remove any excess skin or loose tissue around the belly that was unable to tighten back up after giving birth. Liposuction can also be used to remove any extra fatty deposits that may have developed during pregnancy. A breast augmentation and/or breast lift are also commonly used to address sagging or a loss of volume that often occurs with the breasts after pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Things like dieting or exercising can be nearly impossible with all the responsibility that comes with being a mother. Sometimes, even when you do try to put in the work to get your pre-baby body back, many of the issues left by pregnancy will not go away. The mommy makeover is designed for exactly that – to provide mothers, new and old, with the makeover that they very much deserve.
