Having a baby has been the most amazing experience of your life, giving you your greatest gift. Even though pregnancy and labor put a great deal of strain on your body, you wouldn’t change a thing about those nine months to get to where you are now. That doesn’t mean you wouldn’t like your pre-baby body back. Between the weight gain and changes to your breasts, you don’t like what you see when you look in the mirror. Even with diet and exercise, stubborn deposits of fat can hang on to your stomach. As for your breasts, they sag and look like deflated balloons after the changes due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. If your own efforts aren’t enough to make you snap back, a mommy makeover could get you in shape.
Understanding a Mommy Makeover
You might have heard of a mommy makeover, but don’t know exactly what it is. A mommy makeover includes a combination of cosmetic procedures to help you shape your body after childbirth. When it comes to fat around your midsection, our plastic surgeon can use liposuction to get rid of the source of your problem.
If that is not enough to give you a tighter, flatter abdomen, a tummy tuck may be necessary, in which tissues are tightened, excess skin and fat are removed and the upper flap of skin is pulled down tightly for a smoother physique. Your breasts are likely to need attention as well, whether you need a breast lift to address sagging breasts or breast implants to have more volume. Dr. Jeneby has performed countless breast augmentation procedures in the San Antonio area as part of a mommy makeover. Our board-certified plastic surgeon will tailor your procedures to meet your needs for the best possible outcome.
Is a Mommy Makeover the Right Choice for You?
If you have reached your ideal weight and you’ve tried everything to get back in shape without positive results, a mommy makeover could be the best choice for you. It is also important to have a realistic idea of what the surgery can do for you. You will need to work hard to maintain the results of your surgery, eating a healthy diet and including physical fitness as part of your daily routine. Otherwise, you could find yourself back where you started all over again.
