The mommy makeover is a range of cosmetic surgeries that are performed simultaneously to achieve proportional results. Often, it combines a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, a breast lift, and some form of liposuction sculpting. Because each patient is different, various combinations of cosmetic methods are utilized.
They benefit women who have had children, do not plan on having children anymore and wish to have their body return to pre-pregnancy and childbirth appearance. Pregnancy stretches the abdominal muscles, separating them and creating stretch marks. Breastfeeding is physically demanding on a woman’s body and can cause breasts to alter significantly in shape and volume.
Women who’ve not had children are eligible for this type of cosmetic surgery. However, the vast majority of patients choose this because of childbirth.
Mommy makeovers can reverse some physical changes. Patients who choose this method often have stretch marks, scars from a C-section, disproportionate breasts, their breast size has shrunk or significantly increased, they have loose abdominal tissue, and experience slow weight gain.
Through a series of cosmetic surgeries, that can reverse many of these physical features caused by childbirth and pregnancy.
Most commonly, patients undergo breast augmentation and lift, a tummy tuck, and some form of liposuction. Because each patient has different requirements, each one is unique. Patients should expect different things and be open-minded to procedures they did not consider.
Breast augmentation is more often than not do concurrently with a breast lift. An augmentation increases the breast volume and alters the contour. A breast lift is frequently done to enhance what the augmentation set out to achieve and to ensure breast symmetry.
The tummy tuck, known as an abdominoplasty, is a plan that eliminates excess skin and fat tissue in the abdominal area. It will tighten the abdominal muscles and reconstruct the belly button to create an abdominal region that looks like its pre-pregnancy form.
Liposuction is utilized to aid a tummy tuck. It removes fat cells from specifically targeted areas. Liposuction is often performed on a patient’s thighs during a mommy makeover, as well.
Mommy makeovers are not a substitute for healthy dieting and exercising. It’s important that patients are in good health and have made an effort to exercise regularly before undergoing any procedure. Afterward, they must continue to stay healthy and exercise. They’re appropriate when patients have exercised and dieted regularly but find their efforts have made a little change.
