Do you have a lingering post-baby belly pooch that you are anxious to get rid of? If yes, and you’re finding it difficult to regain your pre-baby figure despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, you may want to consider a mommy makeover. But is a tummy tuck part of a mommy makeover.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that are done to address the physical changes brought about by pregnancy and childbirth. The procedures included in a mommy makeover typically focus on the breasts and abdomen, which are the areas most impacted by pregnancy and breastfeeding (learn more).
Is a tummy tuck part of a mommy makeover
Yes, a tummy tuck is one of the procedures that is traditionally included in a mommy makeover. Breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction are also popular mommy makeover procedures.
The tummy is a problem area for most moms after childbirth because they often have loose skin as well as a protruding tummy that diet and exercise can’t fix. If the abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy, doing crunches won’t close the gap, only a tummy tuck can help. A tummy tuck also reduces stretch marks below the belly button.
What’s involved in a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that is done to flatten the abdomen. This involves removing excess skin and repairing the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is usually done under general anesthesia and takes approximately 3 hours to perform (click here to learn more).
