Perhaps one of the most popular cosmetic/plastic procedures of 2014 was the mommy makeover. This procedure has seen tremendous increase over the course of 2014 and it doesn’t look like it is going to stop anytime soon. Unfortunately, there are still many mothers out there who don’t know what the mommy makeover includes. It’s obviously a procedure for a mom, but what else? Is it simply to improve looks? It is for breasts? Weight loss? Vaginal reconstruction? Let’s take a look at all of the components included in the mommy makeover to understand the full scope of this procedure.
Breast Augmentation/Breast Lift
After having children (and after aging), a woman’s breasts begin to sag and droop. One of the best ways to correct this procedure is to get a breast augmentation or a breast lift done. In some cases, the best thing to do is get both of these cosmetic procedures combined. With a mommy makeover, you have various options to choose from based on what your goals are. For example, if you are satisfied with your breast size and position, there is no reason for you to get a breast augmentation. However, if you are unsatisfied with this area of your body, it might be smart to include a breast augmentation or lift in your mommy makeover.
Another popular procedure that is often included in the mommy makeover is liposuction. After pregnancy, a woman gains a lot of weight. More often than not, it’s extremely difficult for a woman to lose the extra fat that she gained after having children. Luckily, liposuction can really work to help correct this issue. Of course, liposuction should not be viewed as a “quick fix” solution to losing fat. Instead, liposuction should be viewed as a procedure that helps a person complete their goal, or begin the journey to their goal. It takes a lot of time, energy, and dedication to lose fat. Liposuction can help you get started on the right track.
After pregnancy, many times excess skin is left around certain parts of the body. For example, a woman’s stomach stretches out during pregnancy, but goes back to a relatively normal size after pregnancy. This means that the woman loses a major amount of fat. Often times, what happens is the fat is gone, but the skin is still there. This is an undesirable look by many women, and the tummy tuck works to correct this issue. If you are someone that wishes your abdominal area was a bit tighter and more youthful, the tummy tuck procedure can help.
The mommy makeover is an innovative procedure that works as a “package” deal for moms. Essentially, the mom picks out three to five separate surgeries that they feel they need the most. After the consultations, the surgeon will also recommend what they think are the most important procedures for the specific mom. We will begin seeing more of these packaged procedures as time goes on. To learn more, contact your local surgeon today!
