Bringing children into the world is one of the most fulfilling experiences for a woman. However, the stress and strain of childbearing can also take a toll on your body in the form of added weight, stretch marks on your abdomen, sagging breasts, loose skin, and a host of other unwanted physical changes.
Often diet and exercise aren’t enough to help you get your pre-baby body back. Fortunately, there is the “Mommy Makeover” – a way to address those physical changes that can occur after pregnancy to help get your body back in shape.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Typically, a Mommy Makeover is a single-session surgical procedure that combines a tummy tuck, a breast enhancement lift or augmentation, and liposuction for fat removal. Other treatments that are often combined with the procedure include skin tightening, liposuction treatments, and stretch mark improvements. The goal is to restore the shape and appearance of your body after childbearing by addressing the specific areas of your body that need to be enhanced, all at one time.
Who Qualifies for a Mommy Makeover?
If you are finished having children and you’re in good overall health, then it is safe to go forward with a Mommy Makeover. However, most surgeons recommend that you let your body heal for at least six months after delivery before having surgery. You’ll also need to have stopped breast feeding so your doctor can assess the true size and position of your breasts.
On the other hand, if you are planning to have additional children, you may want to postpone your Mommy Makeover until you are done with your pregnancies in order to maintain long lasting results from your body enhancement procedure.
