The joys of motherhood are boundless but the effects of pregnancy on your body can sometimes be drastic. During pregnancy, your body can change in ways you never expected. Some women are lucky, and bounce right back to their pre-pregnancy bodies; others struggle to get close to what they looked like before having children.
Pregnancy can affect our breasts, tummies, legs and more. After nine months—or more, if nursing—you are probably longing for your pre-baby body. Whether you choose a healthy regimen of diet and exercise, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, cosmetic procedures or all of the above, you might also consider a Mommy Makeover to get back in shape.
Mommy Makeover addresses a woman’s post-pregnancy body issues in a single-session surgery that typically combines the following:
Breast Enhancement – Lift, Augmentation
Fat Removal with Liposuction
With all the stress we put on our midsections—during pregnancy or with weight gain and loss—as we age, the shape and size of our stomachs change. When diet and exercise don’t provide the results that you want, a tummy tuck may be your best option.
A tummy tuck permanently restores firmness to the stomach and removes any loose skin. During the procedure, an incision is made at the pubic bone (your scar, once healed, will be concealed by bathing suits and underwear) through which your plastic surgeon will tighten up the muscles. Small pockets of fat can be removed with liposuction. Once the muscles are tightened, the excess skin is removed.
Depending on the extent of your particular post-pregnancy concerns, there are a variety of tummy tuck procedures that treat different degrees of muscle and skin laxity. Some procedures are performed with limited incisions and leave shorter scars.
Maybe your breasts were a perfect size and shape before and during pregnancy, but after breast-feeding they are a sagging or have lost tissue.
Breast enhancement—such as augmenting with implants or a breast lift—can restore shape and size to your breasts, even making them bigger and fuller than they were before you got pregnant.
If you want a long-lasting solution to sagging breasts or loss of breast volume, you may want to consider a breast lift. If there is a loss of volume and sagging skin, then you probably need a lift and implant to recapture the shape.
To restore pre-pregnancy perkiness, a breast lift reduces the excess skin and remodels the breast tissue so it can assume a higher position. There are a variety of breast incision placement options, and some women can benefit from newer, more limited incision techniques that allow for smaller and perhaps fewer incisions for less scarring.
Most post-pregnancy patients just want to be the same breast size they were before or just a little bigger, and in the right woman, implants alone can restore fullness and add projection.” If you’re happy with the position of your breasts but you’d like them to be a little fuller, implants can help replace the breast tissue that diminishes after having a baby, and may even be able to eliminate the need for a breast lift as long as you have healthy, elastic skin and no excessive drooping.
Fat Removal with Liposuction
Liposuction alone can remove fat, but it cannot do anything to treat stretched muscles or extra skin. liposuction is often performed in conjunction with the Tummy Tuck to accentuate the waist and add definition to the abdomen. This is a crucial part of any Mommy Makeover. A nicely contoured waist blends into the flattened abdomen in a natural way, and a narrowed waist complements the proportions created by the breast procedure. Improvements in Liposuction include the ability to use smaller cannulas, thereby leading to smaller incisions and more precisely sculpted contours.
