A mommy makeover is a series of surgical procedures performed in order to restore a new mom’s body back to its pre-pregnancy state. Depending on the individual needs, any combination of procedures may be used for mommy makeover surgery. These may include a breast lift or breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, liposuction, butt lift or labiaplasty. In rare cases, a breast reduction may also be in order. The effect pregnancy has on the body is unique, which means a mommy makeover can be different for every patient.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Mommy Makeover Surgery?
The ideal candidate is a healthy woman who doesn’t plan on having more children. This is because additional pregnancies can cause damages to previous makeovers. Ideally, women should have finished breastfeeding their youngest child and should be able to maintain their weight.
What Does Makeover Surgery Correct?
Numerous issues can be addressed with surgical procedures. Some of the issues corrected may include:
- Imbalanced weight loss
- Bulging stomach
- Sagging breasts or disproportionate breasts
- Stretch marks
- Changes to the vaginal region
How Does It Work?
The procedural steps of a mommy makeover can vary greatly, depending on individual needs. While you are under anesthetic, the various procedures will be performed either all at one time or over multiple visits.
