So many patients have recently inquired about ‘mommy makeover’ and wondering if this is a new set of procedures. Although the term ‘mommy makeover’ is fairly new, the procedures are ones that have been around for a long time. The concept of a mommy makeover is combining a few procedures to resore your body back to the shape you had prior to having children. The most common combination of procedures is breast augmentation and tummy tuck.
After having children, our breasts and tummies tend to take the biggest ‘hit.’ Many woman had full, perky breasts prior to having children and after pregnancy and/or breast feeding they tend to look deflated. The abdomen also gets stretched out and often gets stretch marks from the pregnancy. After the baby is born, the skin shrinks back but often never to what is was before having kids. The only way to get rid of stretch marks and extra skin is by cutting them out. By placing implants behind the breasts, patients can achieve the fullness that they are missing since having their children.
I recommend waiting to have your mommy makeover until you are sure that you are finished having children. You should also give yourself a sufficient amount of time to allow your body to recovery from pregnancy. A mommy makover can help to make youlook as good as you feel !
