The term mommy makeover has been used to describe the common surgical procedures used to improve the changes that women see with their bodies after pregnancy. Most people consider the mommy makeover to include a tummy tuck procedure along with some type of breast procedure – breast augmentation, breast lift or both.
Carrying and bearing children can have a profound effect on the body. Once you have had your child and are not breastfeeding, you may want to restore the way your body looks and feels. By combining tummy tuck surgery, breast lift surgery and liposuction, you can achieve your aesthetic goals.
As with all plastic surgery plans, a mommy makeover is customized to suit the goals and expectations of the patient. For many new mothers, tummy tuck surgery is an attractive option. This helps women restore muscle tone, get rid of excess fat and remove extra skin in the abdomen. You may also want to consider additional liposuction to get rid of fatty deposits in the thighs, back or buttocks. To restore the youthful appearance of the breasts, you can choose a breast lift option or combine a lift with augmentation.
