Throughout pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many changes. And after the baby is born, many women are unhappy with their sagging breasts, excess skin, and stubborn fat pockets. Thankfully, a mommy makeover can help to address these issues so that can you feel more confident about your body! Read on to learn more about a mommy makeover and what procedures it includes.
Breast Augmentation and/or Breast Lift
During pregnancy, the breasts will increase in size while they prepare to produce milk to feed the baby. After breastfeeding, the breasts will return to their original size, but skin often doesn’t snap back, resulting loss of volume and sagginess. A breast augmentation can help to restore lost breast volume, while a breast lift can lift the breasts to a perkier position. These procedures are often combined so patients can enjoy the benefit of both.
As the belly grows during pregnancy, the abdominal skin stretches as well. A tummy tuck can help to address any excess skin left behind after pregnancy, as well as correct weakened or separated abdominal muscles to create a smooth, tight tummy.
Excess fat deposits are bound to stick around following pregnancy. And they are often resistant to diet and exercise. Thankfully, liposuction can help to eliminate unwanted fat cells on almost any area of the body, including the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs, and much more. It is often combined with the tummy tuck procedure to help sculpt the body for optimal results.
Because the mommy makeover procedure is highly personalized, no two mommy makeovers will be exactly the same. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Howland about the areas you would like to change, and a customized treatment plan will be created to address those areas.
