Following pregnancy and childbirth, many women have a hard time restoring their former figure, even if they’re able to lose the baby weight through diet and exercise. Sagging skin and other figure concerns keep mothers from looking or feeling like themselves, which can begin to erode their self-esteem.
A “mommy makeover” may help. A mommy makeover is a group of procedures custom-designed to fit each woman’s goals. It may include liposuction, breast augmentation and/or lift, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Candidates for mommy makeovers are those with sagging or drooping breasts, excess belly fat and skin, stretched and separated abdominal muscles, or fat deposits in nearly any area of the body.
Breast lifts remove excess skin and lift breasts, making them appear firm, smooth and youthful. Liposuction can remove excess fat in the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, back and more. An abdominoplasty can pull muscles taut, remove excess skin, and give a firmer, tighter abdominal area, especially helpful in cases when childbirth tore abdominal muscles.
Another common procedure among mothers is facial rejuvenation. Many experience changes in facial appearance that make them look older than they feel. Facial rejuvenation procedures like Botox, laser treatments or professional skin treatments can smooth wrinkles, even the skin tone and texture, and add volume to facial features like lips.
When is the best time to undergo a mommy makeover? It’s recommended that mothers wait until they’re finished breastfeeding (as this can cause the breasts to change over time) and are fairly certain they won’t be having additional children (as ensuing pregnancies could disrupt the work already done).
