Women who have been through the journey of childbirth understand all too well how pregnancy can impact the body. That’s why mommy makeovers are such a popular option for mothers who want to rejuvenate their figure. A mommy makeover is a customized combination of plastic surgery procedures that work together to reverse the physical changes brought on by pregnancy.
Typically, a mommy makeover consists of a breast enhancement procedure, tummy tuck and liposuction. But because each woman has cosmetic needs that are unique to her, other procedures, such as labiaplasty, may also be included with a mommy makeover.
The Many Ways Pregnancy Shapes the Body
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to dramatic changes in the breasts and abdomen. Additionally, your body may have new stubborn pockets of fat that are impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise, which is where liposuction can help.
Pregnancy can also affect the labia, which are the lips or folds of skin around the vulva. During childbirth, the inner or outer labia may be stretched or torn. This lesser-discussed side effect of pregnancy can be embarrassing for women, and may leave some feeling self-conscious in intimate situations. In some cases, oversized labia can make activities like sex or exercise physically uncomfortable. Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure can repair and resize the labia for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
