After giving birth, the body goes through tremendous changes to recover from pregnancy and establish normalcy once again.
For some women, however, the body doesn’t return to “normal”. Stomach muscles remain stretched, skin is lax and sagging, and breasts can change in shape, size, and texture.
A mommy makeover can restore confidence and self-esteem for any mom! Here’s how…
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
In this transforming procedure, the surgeon can tighten the tummy muscles, remove excess skin, and with it…many stretch marks and extra fat. A mini tummy tuck is ideal for women with loose skin that is located below the belly button with little to no signs of pregnancy above the navel area.
In a full tummy tuck, the plastic surgeon addresses loose muscles and skin by stitching up the rectus abdominus muscles from the sternum to the pubic bone as well as removing excess skin and fat and repositioning the belly button on the abdominal wall.
Recovery from a mini tummy tuck is about 1-2 weeks while a full tummy tuck can take 2-3 weeks. Moms who get a tummy tuck often say to us that they wonder why they waited so long to get it done because they absolutely love the changes to their body and the boost in confidence.
Breast Augmentation, Reduction, or Lift
Breast surgery is very common in mommy makeover procedures because pregnancy and nursing directly affect the breasts in more than one way.
Breasts can become too large, they can lose volume (size), they can become softer (loss of perkiness), and they can sag both due to hormones as well as the process of breastfeeding.
This is where a consultation with a highly-qualified plastic surgeon is essential. Your surgeon will assess the areas of your body that concern you most and provide you with suggestions for the procedures that can resolve those concerns.
