The mommy makeover is designed to restore a youthful body shape after childbirth. As many women know, rearing children can take a toll on your body. As your body weight fluctuates during pregnancy, your skin may stretch, tissue may begin to sag, and stubborn areas of fat may appear.
Fortunately, plastic surgeons can perform a series of procedures to restore your body’s youthful appearance. Breast enhancement, body contouring and body slimming procedures in the mommy makeover may actually leave you looking better than you did before your pregnancy.
Breast Lift surgery, often combined with breast augmentation, can restore fullness and a youthful position to your breasts.
Body contouring procedures like the tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift can be included in your mommy makeover to resolve problems of excess skin.
With liposuction, your plastic surgeon can selectively remove areas of persistent fat. Nearly any area of the body can be treated, with the most common areas being the tummy, back, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms and neck.
Although a mommy makeover can dramatically improve your appearance, the goal is just that – improvement. Perfection is not a realistic goal with these procedures or plastic surgery in general. During a consultation with the doctor, you can review the typical costs of a mommy makeover and discuss the various procedures that would achieve your goals. You may also find it helpful to view before and after photos of the procedures involved.
