Motherhood is wonderful! But as mothers, we know that our bodies change after carrying a baby. If you have more than one child, these changes may be significant. Know that your body is beautiful no matter what, and that a mommy makeover is possible if you want a bit of extra confidence and swagger.
A mommy makeover addresses physical changes that often accompany pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and raising children. If you are a mom, you may have noticed some of these physical changes:
- Sagging breasts
- Breasts that have lost their shape, fullness, and perkiness
- Nipples that have fallen lower on the breasts
- Stretched areolas
- Excess, stubborn fat on your abdomen, thighs, and elsewhere
- Protruding, bulging skin around your abdomen that has lost firmness and elasticity
Because every woman’s body is different, and pregnancy affects our bodies in different ways, a mommy makeover is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Instead, Dr. Sean Bidic and Dr. Vinay Gundlapalli tailor their recommendations to individual goals.
So what does a mommy makeover consist of? It is a custom set of two or more cosmetic procedures. The approach typically includes one or more of the following:
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift combined with breast implants
- Tummy tuck
Sometimes the procedures can be combined into one surgical appointment, which means you have the advantage of a single recovery for multiple procedures.
Pregnancy most often affects the breasts and abdomen, so a mommy makeover often focuses on these areas. Stretching, excess fat accumulation, and loss of firmness are common. A tummy tuck is usually included to remove the puffy skin and fat over the abdomen. A tummy tuck includes repair of stretched and separated muscles of the abdominal wall, which is a condition known as diastasis recti. All in all, a mommy makeover consists of treatments you choose!
