Having a baby is an incredible experience. After nine long months of waiting and watching your body transform, you finally get to hold your greatest gift in your arms. While you would not do anything differently to have your precious baby as a part of your life, the changes to your body are another story.
Weight gain and the strain of carrying your little one can cause your stomach to lose its firmness. Excess fat and skin may hang on long after your baby is born, even if you eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise. Your breasts are affected as well, swelling to a much larger size during pregnancy and breastfeeding, only to look deflated once your baby no longer needs to nurse. It can be discouraging to look at the changes that have happened to your body, but a mommy makeover can help you to look your best again.
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover involves a combination of customized procedures that are used to give you back your pre-baby body. Our plastic surgeon may take on the area of your stomach with liposuction and a tummy tuck. Any unnecessary fat and excess skin can be removed and the underlying muscles can be strengthened. The end result is a smoother, firmer abdomen that will give you confidence in your figure. When it comes to your breasts, our doctor may decide that a breast lift or a breast augmentation is the answer to your problems. Depending on your situation, you may need both to get the best results. The procedure is completely tailored to meet your needs.
Is a Mommy Makeover the Best Choice for You?
Our experienced medical team will study your health history to determine if a mommy makeover is a wise decision for you. You will want to think about whether you are having more children or not. If you do plan on having another baby, you should probably wait to have a mommy makeover. You will also want to be at your ideal weight before you move forward, as this procedure is not a weight loss solution.
