Mommy Makeover Is More Than Just Breast Work and Tummy Tuck

By: RoyDavid May 12, 2017

Your beautiful baby is now a toddler, feeding himself and happily getting into mischief. It’s time to pay attention to your own needs, especially your body.

Pregnancy and childbirth change the body of every new mother. And she wants to change it all back to what it was like before.

Time to rev up the willpower. Watch what you eat, exercise regularly. Except it’s not working. 

What Happens to Your Body? 

There’s good reason willpower isn’t going to return you to your pre-baby body. Look at what happens during pregnancy and childbirth:

  • Stretched skin on your abdomen, resulting in stretch marks
  • Excess skin
  • Stretched abs muscles, leading to a rounded tummy
  • Fat deposits in the abs region, sometimes thighs and lower back
  • Deflated breasts
  • Droopy breasts

With all these changes, you will make only limited progress with diet and fitness changes. 

Real Change with a Mommy Makeover 

What you need is the help of a cosmetic surgeon, experienced with the mommy makeover. This procedure can restore your body–and your confidence.

It does deal mainly with the two areas most affected by childbirth, your breasts and your abdomen. But it also addresses those random pockets of fat that seemed to develop out of nowhere. And it often includes work on the face.

Here is a look at what a mommy makeover can do for you:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast augmentation
  • Or breast reduction
  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction
  • Facial work, both surgical and non-surgical

The rule of thumb is, if it bothers you, if it makes you feel less confident in your body, then it can be dealt with in a mommy makeover. From sculpting your abs to perking up your breasts, a mommy makeover can make a huge difference in your self-image.

During a mommy makeover, the surgeon can remove the extra fat that you just can’t diet or exercise away. Does your face look older than you feel? He can get rid of wrinkles and add volume. He can define your lips and give contour to your cheeks.

Sound like a lot of work at one time? It makes sense from a practical point of view. You’ll already be undergoing surgery, which is usually done as an outpatient. So do it all at once. This consolidates your surgery and recovery time, instead of having it linger over months and years.
