Having a baby is one of the happiest and most exciting times in a woman’s life. It is also however one of the hardest times on her body! Months after having baby, some women find themselves unsatisfied with their different=looking bodies, despite workouts and diets. That is why so many women are now looking into ‘mommy makeovers’ to help them get their figures back.
What it is
A Mommy Makeover procedure is a great way to get back into shape. During [pregnancy, skin is stretched, weight is gained and then lost. All of these factors can contribute to sagging, droop and excess fat – not things anybody wants on their figure! But a Mommy Makeover can change the shape of the tummy and breasts – the two parts affected the most by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The abdomen can be lifted with a tummy tuck, and liposuction can be done to eliminate any fat that exercise cannot. By doing this you can achieve a flat stomach, as well as get your waist and hips looking slimmer.
The second part of the procedure is for the breasts. A lift can be combined with implants – bigger or smaller than your previous size, to keep breasts looking young and perky. This is especially helpful after breastfeeding when skin is always being pulled down. Skin is lifted and contoured around the breasts and implants can be inserted or not. You can achieve a more natural look with smaller implants, or have bigger ones put in if you like.
Although you may be tempted to have the procedures performed right away after pregnancy, it’s best to wait at least a year. Particularly if you want to continue breastfeeding, you should wait until you have stopped completely. If you’d like to know whether you would be a good candidate, or when you would’ve, feel free to contact us at Dr. Alan Serure, MD.
