Motherhood presents major changes as pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on women’s bodies. While many women accept these changes to their body, that doesn’t mean that they necessarily have to if they are in pain or simply unhappy or embarrassed about how different their body looks now that they have given birth. Thanks to the mommy makeover procedure, you can actually customize and combine procedures in order to achieve the best possible results.
A mommy makeover can consist of a combination of procedures that are based on your individual goals and needs that are specifically tailored to you by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Take a look at the following list to find out if any of these options may be right for you.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, it is very common for your breasts to lose a bit of volume. You may also have larger breasts than you had before becoming pregnant as well as uneven breasts or stretched areolas. Having a breast augmentation can help restore the volume that was lost. During this procedure, either a saline or silicone implant will be inserted to increase the size of the breasts.
The IDEAL IMPLANT® is an FDA-approved saline-filled option for women who want the natural feel of silicone. Since it contains saline, there are fewer concerns about silent rupture that could potentially occur with silicone implants.
Breast Augmentation With a Lift
When deciding to have breast augmentation as part of your Mommy Makeover, it is usually recommended also to have a breast lift procedure done at the same time. This is because adding implants or removing fat and/or tissue from the breasts will not improve any sagging or placement issues of the breasts. Including a breast lift along with your breast augmentation is the best way for your breasts to look “perky” again.
For some women, the lasting effects of pregnancy and childbirth can result in loss of self-confidence and even discomfort.
Abdominal skin and surrounding muscles stretch and grow during pregnancy, which may result in loose and sagging skin as well as weakened or separated stomach muscles after the woman has given birth. During a tummy tuck, which is also known as an abdominoplasty, excess fat and skin around the stomach area are removed as your abdominal muscles are tightened and restored. Many plastic surgeons use a combination of skin tightening, liposuction and muscle tightening to produce optimal results.
It may seem like there are certain areas of your body where you are unable to lose weight no matter how much you try with diet and exercise. For this, liposuction may be recommended in order to remove fat and give you a smoother appearance safely. Body contouring through liposuction can help to change your body back to how it used to be and hopefully give you a bit more confidence about the way you look.
Women who choose to have labiaplasty after giving birth usually have very specific, personal reasons for having the surgery. Labiaplasty, which is also referred to as vaginal or feminine rejuvenation, is a procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora. Many women choose to add this to their mommy makeover as it can to help relieve discomfort and rejuvenate the area.
