After nine long months of waiting, you have witnessed a miracle. You’ve brought your greatest gift into the world. Holding your baby in your hands is worth all of the changes that your body has gone through during pregnancy. You wouldn’t change a single minute, but you do want your pre-baby body back. Exercise and eating a balanced diet may not be enough to make your figure snap back to the way it used to be. When you need help to sculpt your body, our plastic surgeon can help you with a mommy makeover.
What Can a Mommy Makeover Do for You?
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that can help you to reclaim your body after pregnancy. When you are expecting a baby, your body goes through serious changes. After the baby is born, it takes time to get back to the way you looked before you were pregnant. You are likely to have deposits of fat that are still clinging to your abdomen. Your abdominal muscles may be weak and loose. Your breasts go through many changes as well, swelling in size while you are pregnant and continuing to enlarge while you are nursing only to shrink down once breastfeeding is over. At that point, your breasts may look deflated. While fitness and healthy eating can help you to trim your body down to the size close to what you want it to be, a mommy makeover can help you to tighten your stomach and give a boost to your breasts.
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover?
Our experienced plastic surgeon will tailor your procedure to suit your needs. If your breasts need more volume and definition, breast augmentation can enhance them. A tummy tuck may be performed on your stomach to remove excess skin and tighten your abdominal muscles. Some excess fat may be removed as well, either during the tummy tuck or through liposuction.
