More and more people are choosing to get the ‘mommy makeover,’ a series of plastic surgery procedures intended to help a person return their body to a pre-pregnancy appearance or to help achieve their aesthetic goals.
A mommy makeover can help in a way diet and exercise may not be able to, even if you had the time to focus on dieting and exercising alongside all your other responsibilities. Despite the popularity of mommy makeovers, did you know that it’s not one procedure?
Mommy makeovers are not only made up of various procedures; each mommy makeover may have different procedures from others. The process is individualized to you and your goals. Keep reading to learn some of the common procedures in a mommy makeover.
Pregnancy can bring a lot of physical changes to the body. One of these changes is loss of breast volume. To combat this, many opt to have breast augmentation as a part of their mommy makeover process. Breast augmentations can help alter the size and shape of your breasts.
If you’re happy with the size and shape of your breasts but would like to address sagging, you may consider a breast lift. A breast lift helps restore and recontour the breast to a higher, more symmetrical position on the chest. Though a breast lift won’t affect the breast size, raising the breast can give the impression of larger breasts. The procedure can also help decrease the appearance of the areolas by changing their size.
While the breasts may lose volume during and after pregnancy, they may also gain volume. In this instance, you may opt for a breast reduction, which can help reduce the breast’s size and relieve neck and back pains.
Tummy tucks, also known as abdominoplasties, are performed to slim the abdominal area and tighten muscles that could have stretched out during pregnancy. The procedure also removes fat and excess skin.
