A mommy makeover, the customized set of procedures designed to help women who have completed their families rejuvenate their figure, almost always includes breast enhancement. Pregnancy, nursing and age can have significant impacts on the breasts, and while some women may feel perfectly content with their post-pregnancy breasts, others often wish to create a more youthful breast appearance as part of their mommy makeover.
Here are the three most common breast enhancement options to help women achieve a younger, curvier figure after pregnancy:
Breast augmentation can restore lost volume after age, weight fluctuations or pregnancy have caused breasts to adopt a deflated appearance. Since the breasts typically swell during pregnancy and breastfeeding then decrease in size after weaning, many mothers feel that their breasts lack the extra boost that they once had. Additionally, women who have always wanted more breast volume may find that after completing their families is the perfect time to invest in this long-term goal.
Pregnancy and nursing, not to mention the ongoing effects of gravity, frequently cause the breasts to sag. A breast lift can correct droopiness by repositioning the breasts upward, reshaping breast tissue and tightening skin around the new breast shape. The nipples are normally repositioned to a natural central location and the areolas can be resized.
While some women feel that their breasts lack volume after childbearing, others never lose the volume that they acquired during pregnancy and may instead gain a cup size or more. Women interested in smaller, more proportionate and lighter breasts can benefit from a breast reduction, which removes tissue from the breasts while also reshaping, repositioning and tightening the remaining breast tissue and skin for a younger look.
