About Mommy Makeover Candidacy
If you are medically healthy, have realistic expectations, are within your target weight, and have finished childbearing, you could be a candidate for a mommy makeover. Also, it is advised you wait at least 6 months after finishing breastfeeding before getting a mommy makeover.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a procedure that does exactly what it claims to do. It gives moms a makeover following pregnancy, making them look and feel more like their younger selves. Naturally, when you give birth, parts of your body stretch out, extra weight is put on, and you can struggle to return to your old physique. As such, you may feel old, saggy, and just generally not good about yourself.
With a mommy makeover, you can undergo a selection of treatments that tackle all of these common problems. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we typically include the following treatments as part of a mommy makeover:
- Breast Lift: This is a highly popular treatment that can lift breasts that have sagged during pregnancy. When you’re pregnant, your breasts will grow in size as you start making milk for your baby. The added weight can make them sag, so a breast lift is a perfect way to counter this.
- Breast Augmentation: Another treatment for the breasts, but this one is designed to alter the shape and size.
- Liposuction: In instances where you’ve got extra fatty tissue from pregnancy, liposuction can be used to remove it. It’s well-known that you gain weight when carrying a baby, so this can help you reverse this and return to your normal weight. It’s only suitable when you’ve tried to lose weight naturally, but it remains stubborn!
- Abdominoplasty: More commonly known as a tummy tuck, this surgery can repair damaged abdominal muscles and remove excess skin following pregnancy.
We also offer non-surgical treatments as part of a mommy makeover, including dermal fillers. These can be used to treat the signs of aging in your face, making you feel more youthful.
