More and more women are turning to mommy makeover procedures to restore their pre-pregnancy figure. It’s very common for women to feel uncomfortable with the way their body looks after childbearing and nursing. While motherhood is a natural and beautiful process, many women find that their body doesn’t bounce back from the weight change, the muscle stretching, and the metabolic changes that occur with pregnancy.
As a board-certified surgeon, I routinely perform mommy makeover procedures of all types. Each treatment is highly personalized for the individual woman. We’ll sit down and discuss the concerns post-pregnancy and determine a treatment plan to get you looking and feeling your best. The goal is to maximize your overall results while maintaining a single recovery process.
What Procedures are Included?
A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of procedures aimed at returning your body to pre-pregnancy shape (or better). From injectables to vaginal rejuvenation, your options are quite broad. That said, there are some procedures that are more common than others. The top three commonly-requested procedures within a mommy makeover are as follows.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
It’s no secret that the abdominal area is significantly affected by pregnancy and childbearing. A tummy tuck is often done to eliminate sagging skin, remove isolated pockets of fat, and tighten the abdominal wall. In some cases, a tummy tuck may also be able to address stretch marks found below the belly button. There are several types of abdominoplasty procedures that can each be customized based on your specific needs.
Tummy tuck Consultations Available
Breast enhancement is another commonly-requested procedure after pregnancy and nursing. Some women opt for breast reduction, while others may choose to have a breast lift with or without augmentation (implants). There is no right or wrong answer.
Liposuction is sometimes paired with tummy tuck procedures or can be done alone in areas like the inner and outer thighs, flanks (above the hip) and other areas as well.
What’s Right for You?
What’s right for one woman may not be the best route to take for your individual concerns. A consultation with a skilled surgeon is the best way to find out which procedure(s) will achieve your ultimate goals. A mommy makeover can help you feel good in your own skin so you can confidently take on the next chapter of your life – motherhood.
