Pregnancy brings many physical changes, from sagging skin to excess fat. Diet and exercise alone might not be enough to get your body to where you want, even if you fit it into your busy schedule.
Thankfully, mommy makeovers can help address the changes to your body associated with pregnancy. But, just as no two moms are the same, no two mommy makeovers are the same. Each mommy makeover is individualized to the person. A mommy makeover isn’t one procedure; it can be various procedures.
While talking to a plastic surgeon can help you understand which procedures should be a part of your mommy makeover, look at some of the most common ones.
Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, can address loose, sagging skin and excess fat around the midsection and tighten the abdominal muscles that can separate during pregnancy.
Though not always necessary or needed, an abdominoplasty can be accompanied by liposuction, allowing for a more slim figure.
Breast Augmentation/ Breast Lift
A potential consequence of both pregnancy and nursing is changes to your breasts. Often, these changes mean breasts that sag or change shape. To address these changes, a mommy makeover may employ breast augmentations or breast lifts.
The breasts may lose volume during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast augmentations utilize implants to help restore that lost volume or add more volume than was previously present.
A breast lift can help address issues related to excessive sagging by altering the shape and position of the breasts.
If your breasts grow larger during pregnancy, you and your doctor may decide to have a breast reduction as part of your mommy makeover.
