Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing will change your body. The daily impact of taking care of, nurturing, and raising children can also cause physical changes. Many of these changes, such as fat accumulations and sagging skin, may not respond to diet, exercise, and similar efforts, leaving many women to wonder if such changes are both inevitable and permanent.
They may be one. They don’t have to be the other.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to address the physical changes caused by pregnancy and nursing. This may include:
- Breast Surgery. Augmentation adds volume, restores symmetry, and improves the profile of the bust. Lift surgery removes loose and sagging skin and firms the breast mound for a more youthful look
- Body Surgery. Tummy tuck removes excess skin from the belly, draws in the waist, reduces stretch marks, and re-attaches separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). Liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits from every area of the body. Labiaplasty can be used to tighten vaginal skin, restoring both comfort and appearance to the mons pubis
- Facial Surgery. Neck lift and facelift can restore a youthful look to the face. Blepharoplasty can lift eyelids and remove dark, puffy skin from below the eyes, and brow lift can correct frown lines and forehead creases
While some surgical treatments are common in many mommy makeovers, every procedure is different, completely customized to meet the specific concerns of the patient. The best way to learn which treatments your mommy makeover may include is through a private and confidential consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Altos Oaks.
The best mommy makeover candidates are nonsmokers who are in generally good health. You will need time to rest after your procedure, so having the luxury of taking some time for yourself in the days following surgery is necessary as well.
It is best if you are satisfied with the size of your family before considering a mommy makeover. Plastic surgery will not interfere with pregnancy or nursing, but these procedures can be undone with subsequent pregnancies.
