Pregnancy and childbirth are incredible experiences, but they can take a serious toll on your body. You might find that you’re not able to get your body back in shape no matter how hard you eat right, exercise and try to tone up. Most women find that pregnancy leaves them with sagging breasts, a bulging stomach and other issues. Pregnancy, childbirth and aging can all cause your breasts to sag and your stomach muscles to weaken. That makes it hard to get back in shape. If you’re tired of struggling to look better, a mommy makeover could be the answer.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is an informal term for a set of cosmetic surgeries that are designed to get your body back in shape after pregnancy and childbirth. These procedures can leave your body looking even better than it did before you were pregnant. They leave you looking shapely and sexy.
You Don’t Have to Be a Mommy
These makeovers are not only for women who have had children. Any woman who’s not happy with the way her body looks can enjoy the firming, shaping and beautifying benefits of these cosmetic procedures. A mommy makeover can transform your body in just hours. Once you recover, you’ll enjoy a more youthful-looking, sexy shape. You can look forward to looking your best in your favorite outfits.
Why Get a Mommy Makeover?
1. Get Firm, Perky Breasts
Many women find that childbirth leaves their breasts flat, sagging and misshapen. A breast lift takes up the excess skin and loose muscles around your breasts to position them higher up on your chest. This restores their natural, youthful perkiness.
2. Flatten Your Tummy
Losing your belly after a pregnancy is difficult. It’s even harder if you’ve had more than one pregnancy. A tummy tuck pulls your stomach muscles taut and flattens that annoying, stubborn bulge.
If you’ve had a C-section, it probably left your stomach muscles so stretched and loose that all the exercise in the world won’t help. It isn’t your fault that you can’t get the firm, toned tummy you had before your pregnancy and C-section. Only surgery can make those muscles tight again.
3. Get Larger Breasts
While you’re getting your breast lift, you might also want to add volume and fullness. A breast augmentation procedure gives you a shapely, sexy bust that will look sensational with your trim, new body. If your breasts look like they shrank after your pregnancy, or if you’ve always wanted a larger bust, breast augmentation is a good choice.
4. Look Shapely and Sexy
Your mommy makeover will probably include liposuction to trim and tone your buttocks, thighs, back and/or stomach. Liposuction combined with surgical procedures can transform your body and give you a firm, defined shape. You can use liposuction to remove excess fat from virtually anywhere on your body. You can also use it to remove a double chin.
5. Enhance Your Self-Confidence
The best reason to get a mommy makeover is to change how you feel about yourself. You’ll enhance your self-esteem and feel confident in any situation. You’ll look your best in any outfit and feel confident in all social situations. A mommy makeover is a great gift to give yourself.
What is in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover usually consists of certain common procedures. Our surgeon can help you put together the combination that helps you achieve your best results.
Also known as a mastopexy, this procedure involves removing excess skin around the breast. Our surgeon then repositions the breast tissue so that it sits higher on your chest. A breast lift can make your breasts go back to their original position or better. It can also make them look even. You can combine the procedure with implants if you want larger breasts.
During a tummy tuck, our plastic surgeon removes excess skin and fatty tissue from your stomach. Our surgeon also tightens the stomach muscles. A tummy tuck may be used to smooth away scars left by pregnancy and childbirth. If you have a hernia, a tummy tuck can repair it.
Breast augmentation involves placing an implant inside your breast to add fullness. You choose implants based on their size, shape and composition. Implants come in a wide range of sizes. They can last for years. After that, you can replace them or remove them.
Liposuction uses specialized techniques in order to remove excess fat. Liposuction is a proven, FDA-approved method of fat removal. It is also an excellent body contouring technique. With liposuction, our doctor can remove fat and reshape your body.
Customize Your Mommy Makeover
There are many ways to surgically enhance your body. You can add procedures to customize your mommy makeover. If you want the best possible results, talk to our plastic surgeon about a complete package of cosmetic enhancements.
You may want to add procedures such as the following:
Get firm thighs that are free of bulges and lumpy fat. If you’re not happy with the way your thighs look, you don’t have to live with them. A thigh lift leaves them firm and slender.
Also called a brachioplasty, this procedure removes excess fat from your upper arm and tightens the muscles. It can be difficult to get firm, toned upper arms. Some women find that even with diet and exercise, they’re left with flabby arms. If you want to get the look of firm, muscular arms, an arm lift is an excellent option.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lifts are popular. They combine two procedures to create a sexy shape on any woman who feels that her rear end could use reshaping. During a Brazilian butt lift, our surgeon begins with liposuction to remove fat from your waist, stomach, buttocks or thighs. Our surgeon then injects the purified fat into your buttocks to add fullness. The procedure ends with reshaping to define the area into a full, round, beautiful shape.
You might feel that a facial procedure is a good addition to your overall transformation. There are smaller procedures that you could undergo depending on the situation. These include:
- Eyelid lift.
- Forehead lift.
- Dermal fillers.
Are You Ready for a Mommy Makeover?
This procedure can make your body look even better than it did before pregnancy. After a full recovery from a mommy makeover, you’ll enjoy a body that’s firm, shapely and slender. Your body will be well-proportioned with a trim waist, flat stomach and full, shapely bust.
You are probably a good candidate for plastic surgery if you:
- Are in good overall health.
- Don’t plan to get pregnant again.
- Are at a stable weight.
- Are not currently breastfeeding.
- Are a healthy non-smoker.
- Have a plan for your aftercare.
What to Expect from Your Procedure
Cosmetic surgery is a major step. Before you get started, make sure you’re fully prepared.
You should begin every cosmetic procedure with a thorough consultation at the plastic surgeon’s office. This is especially true of a mommy makeover because it involves a combination of procedures. You’ll need to ask any questions you have while you discuss your goals for surgery. Our surgeon can help you put together a surgical plan based on your wants and needs to deliver the best results.
Among other things, you’ll need to determine:
- If you want a breast augmentation procedure in addition to a breast lift.
- The size, position and shape of your breast implants.
- If you want to add other surgical procedures.
- How long it will take to complete all the procedures you want.
- How to prepare for surgery and recovery.
Everyone’s mommy makeover is different. Our surgeon will create a treatment plan that’s personalized and customized for you.
You will have your surgery done in the privacy and comfort at a surgical clinic. In most cases, you won’t need a hospital stay. The surgery will include general anesthesia. Depending on how many procedures you’re having done, it will take multiple hours. You should arrange for a ride home after your surgery.
Aftercare and Recovery
You should plan to take it easy in the weeks after your surgery. You will need to restrict your mobility for a set amount of time. You’ll also need to wear specific compression garments. Our doctor and staff will give you full instructions on aftercare and follow-up appointments.
When Will You See Your Results?
Your body needs some time to fully recover from cosmetic surgery. You should expect to see your swelling go down in time. After you have completely healed, you’ll see your beautiful body emerge.
How Long Will Your Results Last?
The best part about a mommy makeover is that your results are designed to be permanent. If you maintain your weight by continuing to exercise and eat right, you’ll keep your beautiful shape for years to come.
