The Mommy MakeoverThe Mommy Makeover
Every mother knows that after pregnancy her body is not quite the same. The physical demands of pregnancy and breast feeding can cause permanent changes to the breasts and body including diastasis recti (the separation of the abdominal muscles), excess skin of the abdomen, sagging breasts, a loss of breast volume and stretch marks. Even subtle changes may affect a woman’s self-esteem. Fortunately, the Mommy Makeover can help women “get their bodies back”.
The Mommy Makeover is a term used to describe an individualized blend of cosmetic procedures designed for women who have had children to counteract the physical effects of child-bearing and to rejuvenate the appearance of the breasts and body. The Mommy Makeover typically includes an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift), or a combination of breast enhancement and lift, but may also include liposuction or fat grafting.
Are you a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Women considering Mommy Makeover procedures should be finished having children and be at a stable weight. For those considering breast surgery, it is important that they wait six months after they have stopped breast feeding. Women should also be ready to take some time to nurture themselves and have the support systems in place to help care for the children while they are recovering from surgery.
