A mommy makeover involves helping women who have recently had children address the many body changes that can occur by pregnancy with a combination of treatment options.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many woman notice significant changes in the appearance of their breasts. A breast lift can reposition the nipple and create a more natural pre-pregnancy shape to the breast. Many patients also choose for a lift with an implant for a fuller look.
Changes with pregnancy and breastfeeding often cause the breast to lose volume. Therefore, many choose to add breast implants to restore “perkiness” and fullness to the breast.
During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles and skin in the midsection are stretched and pulled apart, often leaving laxity of the skin. Rigorous diet and exercise cannot address this issue. There are several abdominal procedures, from reducing excess skin to partial muscle tightening to a full tummy tuck, that can be performed to provide a flatter tummy.
Liposuction is one of the most requested procedures to include in a Mommy Makeover. This option targets pockets of fat in a variety of body areas that have accumulated during or after pregnancy.
A mommy makeover can also include a range of skin care and rejuvenation treatments that can restore the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, signs of aging and exhaustion. With facials, chemical peels, Botox, and other options, new moms can renew their skin for a youthful, healthy and refreshed look.
