Everything You Need to Know About Mommy Makeover and Tummy Tuck
What is a mommy makeover you might ask yourself? Well, it’s a well-known fact that after 9 months of pregnancy things can feel a little different for mothers. Pregnancy takes a toll on our bodies, especially our belly, legs, breasts, and more. While nursing, our bodies needs time to adjust to the previous regime that we’ve put it through. You can make it through by exercising and healthy diets, or you can use cosmetic treatments. But one thing is certain, you might want to consider using a Mommy Makeover in order to get you back into shape.
In today’s time, many plastic surgeons are urging mothers to get a “Mommy Makeover” procedure, which addresses the body shape of post-pregnancy mothers. These makeovers can be done in a single surgery session, or multiple, depending on the body shape. These procedures usually involve a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and fat removal through the use of liposuction.
Mommy makeover procedures address two of the main pregnancy-related changes in a mother’s body- the tummy and the breasts. The good news here is that both tummy makeover and breast enhancement procedures can be done in a single surgery session. Other less important treatments which the mommy makeover procedure consists is skin tightening, cellulite treatments, and stretch mark improvement.
1. Tummy Tuck Procedure
We would like to say firstly that before you consider anything, you should consult with your doctor about these procedures to find out if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure.
When the diet and exercising don’t give you the desired results, a tummy tuck might be something that will help you shape your stomach to the desired shape before your pregnancy. With modern plastic surgery, there are a lot of different tummy tuck procedures that treat different areas of your stomach. Some of the most common tummy tuck procedures consist of:
- Traditional Tummy Tuck- Full Stomach procedure
- Extended Tummy Tuck- Belt Lipectomy
- Mini Tummy Tuck- Short Scar Stomach procedure
- Reverse Tummy Tuck- Breast bone to stomach procedure
- Nonsurgical Body Contouring- A nonsurgical procedure involving liposuction, lasers, or injectables
2. Breast Enhancement
Some women are luckier than others because during pregnancy, our bodies change in ways you wouldn’t even imagine are possible. After pregnancy, our fine and beautiful breasts can change their form to saggy. The reason for this is because during pregnancy our hormones affect the tissue around our breasts, making it saggy and out of shape.
Namely, with breast enhancement, you can restore the shape of your breasts and even improve them than before your pregnancy. There are two types of breast enhancement procedures available: Breast Lift and Breast Implants.
• Breast Lift
Recapturing the desired shape of your breasts can be done with a breast lift. The common problem to saggy breasts after pregnancy occurs because of stretched-out skin and underlying supporting tissue. Although, a breast lift can leave behind large scars, depending on the type of breast lift procedure.
• Breast Implants
A breast implant can give you the desired breast shape back, and add some more to the size. A breast implant procedure can make your breasts a little bigger and can make you little more attractive than before. If you are happy with your breast size, then you can only restore the shape, if you want them to be bigger, no matter how much, than you can do that as well.
