Pregnancy and childbirth can be one of the most rewarding experiences a woman can have, however, it has huge effects on the body! Now that you’re finished having children, you might be considering restoring your pre-pregnancy figure and confidence with the mommy makeover – a set of procedures for full body rejuvenation. Here are the most popular procedures to include:
- Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck:
The midsection is highly affected by pregnancy, as your abdomen stretches to make room for the baby. After childbirth, it can be difficult to re-tighten this area. Stretched out skin and hanging tissue can be present no matter how many crunches you do. An abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, can be added to your mommy makeover to address these concerns, tightening the abdominal tissue and muscles and removing excess skin.
Weight gain is a part of the pregnancy process, but after you’ve given birth, excess stubborn fat can linger. Liposuction can be performed during your mommy makeover to remove bothersome fat in the abdominal area, thighs, flanks, buttocks, upper arms and virtually anywhere else stubborn fat is present.
A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to decrease the size of the labia minora to restore your feminine wellness and confidence after pregnancy and childbirth.
- Breast Augmentation:
Your breasts are another area changed during pregnancy and childbirth. While your breasts might appear larger during pregnancy and breastfeeding, they can lose their volume later on, resulting in sagging. A breast augmentation can restore volume loss with the use of implants for rounder, fuller breasts.
- Breast Reduction and Lift:
For some women, their breasts remain overly large even after childbirth and breastfeeding. You can opt for a breast reduction to restore your pre-pregnancy breasts. A mastopexy/breast lift can be added to lift the breasts to a more youthful position and remove excess skin and tissue.
