What are Some Popular Procedures Used in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover gives you a chance to get back your pre-baby body, look better, and feel more confident in your body. A mommy makeover is not a single treatment. Mommy makeover is a combination of procedures to change the areas that are most affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. While there may be several other minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments added to your mommy makeover, there are some procedures that are typically done for most women. Typically, mommy makeovers include liposuction, a tummy tuck, and breast enhancement. Liposuction can be performed on many problematic areas across your body. However, when liposuction is used during a mommy makeover, liposuction is most frequently used on the abdomen, love handles, hips and thighs. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves the skillful removal of fat. Once the fat cells are removed, your body can never make new fat cells in the future.
Therefore, as long as you maintain your healthy lifestyle, the benefits of a liposuction procedure can be quite long lasting. A tummy tuck is more involved. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is mainly used to change the shape and tone of the abdomen. However, rather than getting rid of fat as the liposuction procedure does, the tummy tuck gets rid of extra abdominal skin. A tummy tuck also tightens and other underlying tissues that have been stretched during pregnancy. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Katzen tightens the underlying abdominal muscles. The tummy tuck provides a flatter abdomen, without any overhang, and a more toned appearance. Another popular surgery performed during a mommy makeover is some form of breast enhancement.
Depending on your wants and needs, this could include a breast lift or a breast augmentation. In some cases, your breast surgery may include a combination of both procedures. The breast lift does not add any volume to the breasts, but instead, removes extra breast skin and tissues and lifts your breasts. A breast augmentation will add volume to your breasts.
