Sometimes as mothers, it's not easy to take time for ourselves. This seems especially true in summer, with school-aged children at home or being shuttled to camp, and family vacations on the schedule.
If you've considered a Mommy Makeover, but worried about downtime, this may be the best time of year for you to finally schedule your procedure. The kids are back in school, vacations are over, and the holiday rush is still a few months away.
The Mommy Makeover procedure is a unique combination of surgeries to help restore the figure you had before pregnancy and childbirth. A Mommy Makeover typically includes a combination of tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgery.
Many of our Mommy Makeover candidates are unhappy with their abdominal area. For some women, the skin and muscles that get stretched during pregnancy never rebound to their former positions. Even with exercise and a proper diet, some women are left with loose belly skin, stretch marks and weak abdominal muscles. The tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, can reverse some of these changes. The surgeon will tighten the abdominal muscles, pull the skin down and then remove excess skin, including stretch marks. Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat. The result is a slimmer, flatter mid-section.
Breast procedures are also popular parts of the Mommy Makeover. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag, and for some women a breast augmentation and/or breast lift will help to restore volume and improve the shape of breasts. Or if the breasts are overly large, they can create back and posture problems for women, and a breast reduction may become part of the Mommy Makeover.
