Nobody truly appreciates the sacrifices women make when giving birth. Carrying a baby around for 9 months is the hardest task anyone will ever face. When the pregnancy is over, complications can continue to exist. Your body changes when you’re pregnant, and many of these changes stubbornly refuse to go away – no matter how hard you try to make them. As a result, you’re overjoyed at the presence of your new baby, but you’re also suffering from self-consciousness due to the changes made to your body. Thankfully, a mommy makeover can help you!
The Purpose of a Mommy Makeover
The whole idea of a mommy makeover is to undergo different procedures that reverse many of the effects of pregnancy. It will make you look more like your previous self, restoring your body to how it looked before you gave birth.
Procedures Typically Included in a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover isn’t one procedure, it’s a combination of different ones that target specific problems. You are able to create your own mommy makeover package, and you’ll have the following treatments and more to choose from:
Breast Augmentation and/or Lift
Your breasts undergo extensive changes throughout pregnancy. They grow in size, which means they have a tendency to sag or lose their shape. With breast augmentation, you can reshape your breasts to make them rounder and more younger-looking. You have the option to combine this with a breast lift to raise your breasts up and stop them from sagging. Or, you can have a breast lift on its own – it’s up to you.
Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction
Naturally, most women put on weight during pregnancy. Furthermore, the skin around your stomach can stretch out and become loose. In some cases, this skin springs back into place following pregnancy. If it doesn’t, you could benefit from a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and also firms up the muscles of the abdomen. These muscles commonly get stretched out as your belly gets bigger, leaving them loose and damaged. Overall, a tummy tuck leaves you with a more toned stomach.
This can be combined with liposuction to remove excess fat from your body if you’ve been unable to get rid of it through exercise and dieting.
Your body isn’t the only thing feeling the effects of pregnancy, your face does too. It’s common to see more wrinkles and fine lines after giving birth, largely due to how stressful it is! With our range of facial rejuvenation treatments – including dermal fillers – you can iron out wrinkles, add volume to your face, and generally leave it looking fresh!
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The best candidates for mommy makeovers are women who have given birth and have no plans to have more children. You should also cease breastfeeding for at least 6 months prior to undergoing any of the surgical treatments. As well as ticking these two boxes, you should also be in good health and within your target weight. If you fit this description and want to undo some of the effects of pregnancy, you could be a candidate for a mommy makeover package.
