If you are like most moms, you were probably surprised by how different your body looked after childbirth, but if those changes are making you unhappy, a mommy makeover may be just what you need. A mommy makeover can help recapture your before-pregnancy body, and make you feel more confident in your appearance. But what procedures are included in a mommy makeover?
What Procedures Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover usually consists of several surgical procedures. A breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures moms opt for in a mommy makeover, because the breasts often lose volume and look deflated after pregnancy. Breast augmentation uses saline or silicone breast implants to restore volume and shape to the breasts (click here to learn more).
A breast lift is another procedure many women include in their mommy makeover, as it addresses sagging breasts. A breast lift removes the excess skin and reshapes the breasts, in order to give them a perky, more youthful appearance.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is also a popular mommy makeover procedure. It gets rid of the stubborn ‘mommy pooch,’ and makes the tummy flatter and firmer. After pregnancy, many moms are stuck with excess abdominal skin and stretched tummy muscles that no amount of exercise can fix. However, a tummy tuck can restore natural contours to the abdominal area.
Liposuction is another procedure that is often included in a mommy makeover. It removes unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs.
