Mommy Makeover: Is it for Me?


Before you decide if a mommy makeover is a beneficial option for you, it is good idea to understand what is involved. Pregnancy affects your physical appearance, not just while you are pregnant, but also after you deliver. Your breasts may have lost volume and sag after breastfeeding, your abdomen may have lost muscle tone and your tummy may have sagging skin.

To get back your pre-pregnancy figure, you may have gone through a rigorous exercise regimen and dieted for weeks and still may not be happy with the results. There are some places on the body that exercise and dieting just can not fix, but a mommy makeover can. A mommy makeover is a popular name for a combination of surgical procedures that addresses problems areas where pregnancy has taken a toll on your body. The two main procedures that define a mommy makeover are an abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) and breast enhancement (or augmentation, often with a breast lift). Often, liposuction is used in conjunction with a tummy tuck to remove excess fat that just will not diminish with exercise. There are several types of tummy tucks. Smaller tummy tucks include a “mini-tuck”, whereas larger tummy tucks include a full abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck removes loose tummy skin as well as stretch marks. Also, a tummy tuck tightens the underlying abdomen muscles to keep your tummy flat. There are several options for breast enhancement. If your breasts are only minimally affected, a breast lift may be all you need. Breast augmentation may be able to return your breasts to their normal perky position. Breast implants can restore breast fullness. They can make the breasts a bit fuller than their original size. Liposuction alone may not be enough to restore your body, even if liposuction removes excess fat. Your tummy skin may still sag and the abdominal muscles will still be loose. This is why liposuction is most effective when used in conjunction with a tummy tuck. The procedure of liposuction has improved over the years, and there are several options from which to choose.
