The Mommy Makeover is a grouping of procedures created to help a woman restore the appearance and body she had pre-pregnancy. The treatment is customized and often includes enhancing both the midsection and the breasts. There are additional areas that may be improved as well. This is a special combination of procedures with numerous benefits.
Pregnancy causes the abdominal muscles to weaken, and it can lead to a fluctuation in weight. Even if the woman achieves the same weight as prior to pregnancy, loose muscles and flabby skin can still be an issue.
The Procedures Included in the Mommy Makeover
A tummy tuck is a common procedure to tighten abdominal muscles, remove loose skin and provide a leaner look. The results tend to last a long time provided the woman maintains a healthy weight.
The breasts often go through significant changes due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Sagging, drooping and a loss of fullness are common. This can have a negative impact on the confidence level. This is why breast surgery is a common procedure used during the Mommy Makeover.
A breast lift corrects drooping breasts and restores them to a more youthful and higher position. This procedure also removes the excess tissue and skin from the breasts often causing the drooping. Breast implants can be customized to restore the shape of the breasts. There are numerous options for styles and sizes, enabling the woman to fulfill her specific wants and needs. This can correct disproportionately small breasts.
Counting calories and performing endless crunches may not get rid of the isolated fat bulges in numerous areas of the body. In many cases, these pockets of fat have a negative impact on the appearance of the body. This fat can be eliminated using liposuction for body contouring. This results in an improvement of the body contour. This is considered a good method for the permanent removal of fat provided the woman maintains a healthy weight.
