Having children comes with many life changes, and while there are a lot of new things to be excited about, there are also some things that may nag at you.
Many women settle into motherhood and realize that their body is not the same as it used to be. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause changes all over your body, especially in your breasts and abdomen.
While diet and exercise can help to reduce some baby weight, it will likely not help with stretched skin or sagging breasts. A Mommy Makeover is a popular plastic surgery procedure that rejuvenates the body after having children.
What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a unique body sculpting surgery that incorporates a series of operations. When performed together, these procedures can restore a woman’s body to how it looked before pregnancy.
A Mommy Makeover typically combines liposuction, breast enhancement, and tummy tuck surgery.
In some cases, women may also opt for a vaginal rejuvenation procedure to restore their more intimate areas.
A Mommy Makeover can:
- Help to reduce excess baby weight
- Lift and/or add volume to the breasts
- Remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen
- Repair abdominal muscles
- Improve body contours
- Enhance body image
Every Mommy Makeover is different, depending on which contouring goals are most important to you. Some patients may be satisfied with a breast lift, whereas others may wish to lift and enlarge the breasts, meaning a combined breast augmentation and lift.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Being the right candidate for a Mommy Makeover is dependent on several factors, including your overall health, family plans, and goals for the procedure.
You could be a candidate for a Mommy Makeover if:
- You are in good health
- You are close to your ideal body weight
- You do not plan to become pregnant again
- You have realistic expectations for the procedure
It is suggested that women who are planning on having more children postpone their Mommy Makeover, as additional pregnancies may reverse your Mommy Makeover results. Breast surgeries may also cause damage to the breast, which may hinder your ability to breastfeed in the future.
Being close to your ideal weight can also help to maximize your results. While liposuction can help to remove stubborn fat and sculpt the body, it cannot be used for significant weight loss.
The best way to know if you are an ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover is to set up a consultation with Dr. Rey.
