After pregnancy, many women complain about body changes that make them feel uncomfortable about their body. Excess weight around the waistline, sagging breasts or loss of fullness in the breasts are the most common problems. A growing number of dissatisfied mommies are choosing to have a mommy makeover. But what is involved in a mommy makeover procedure.
What is involved in a mommy makeover procedure?
A mommy makeover is not a single procedure, but is actually a package that consists of several procedures that are designed to help women restore their post-pregnancy body.
Below are the procedures typically included in a mommy makeover:
- Breast augmentation: Pregnancy and breast feeding often leaves the breasts deflated, but breast augmentation restores volume, especially in the upper pole of the breasts. The procedure is normally done with the use of implants that are filled with either silicone gel or saline salt water.
- Breast lift: This is done to correct ptosis or sagging of the breasts. The surgeon will remove excess skin in order to elevate the position of the breasts, and restore a more youthful shape and appearance.
- Tummy Tuck: During pregnancy the walls of the tummy expand and sometimes separate, and there is often sagging skin and extra fat. A tummy tuck firms and tones the abdominal area by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the underlying muscles.
- Liposuction: Diet and exercise are often not enough to restore your shape after pregnancy, but liposuction can get rid of those pockets of unwanted fat.
