Restore Your Body After Pregnancy with a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy is one of the most enriching experiences in a woman’s life, but it can come with a high cost. Giving birth can significantly alter the appearance of the body. The changes experienced vary from woman to woman. Some women find it simple to regain their pre-pregnancy body, but most find it to be extremely difficult.
A mommy-makeover is a package that can help mothers of all sizes restore the look of their bodies after giving birth through a series of cosmetic procedures. A mommy makeover consists of five commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedures. These procedures include:
- Liposuction: Liposuction is an invasive procedure that helps in body contouring through the removal of stubborn fat deposits underneath the skin. Liposuction is mostly performed on the legs, hands, around abs, love handles, back, and chin.
Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin and tightens the stomach after extreme weight loss or pregnancy. The procedure involves the direct removal of excessive abdominal fat and skin while simultaneously tightening the walls of the abdomen.
The illusion of a flat stomach is enhanced when the abdominal walls are tightened. For those women who have a taller frame, getting a tummy tuck will enhance their hour glass figure. Liposuction is supplemented in a few cases to drain out fat from love handles.
Post pregnancy, women can opt for either mini or full tummy tucks. Full abdominoplasty is best suited for women who have excessive skin in the lower stomach region. Fat tissue is removed below the bellybutton up to the bikini line.
Mini Abdominoplasty is best suited for women who battle stubborn fat which is just enough to be noticed.
Breast Augmentation: An invasive surgery performed to correct the shape or enhance the size of the breast is known as breast augmentation. The most common complaint in women post pregnancy is sagging breasts. The condition can be easily rectified by breast augmentation procedure.
Augmentation is done through implants (silicone or saline) or via fat transfer. There is a secondary procedure known as the breast lift which involves restoration of the fullness in the upper region of the breasts. A breast lift is performed by removing the overlaying skin and then restricting the entire breast tissue region.
- Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL): This procedure has increased in popularity in recent years. Fat is extracted and processed to be injected into the butt region. As a result of this procedure, the buttocks region will appear more lifted and perky. The results offered by this procedure are long lasting and may require touch-up periodically.
- Vaginal Rejuvenation: The latest fad among young mothers is vaginal rejuvenation. This procedure is utilized to correct laxity after giving birth. Vaginal tightness is restored by repairing all damages caused to the muscle.
Most doctor will advise you to wait for a minimum of three months after giving birth before opting for vaginoplasty. Women who wish to have another child should refrain from this procedure.
