Did you see significant changes in your figure after pregnancy and childbirth? While pregnancy and childbirth are among some of the most beautiful experiences you can have, they often leave a lasting impact on your body.
Many women notice a change in their breast volume, excess skin left around the midsection, and even a change in their pubic region after giving birth.
If you want to enhance the way your body looks after having children, you may benefit from a mommy makeover procedure. Mommy makeovers tackle the aesthetic issues you have after pregnancy, helping restore your pre-baby body.
Kadz Plastic Surgery provides mommy makeover surgery to help women feel like the best version of themselves. Read on to learn more about mommy makeover procedures and what they include.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a plastic surgical procedure that aims to address common cosmetic concerns that appear after pregnancy and childbirth. These include excess weight, loose skin, and a change in breast tissue.
Mommy makeover procedures are customized to each patient’s unique needs, including only the surgical treatments that will address their specific concerns.
What’s Included in the Mommy Makeover Procedure?
The mommy makeover surgery is tailored to exactly what each patient needs. Your mommy makeover can include any combination of the following: breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, monsplasty, and more. Learn more about the most common elements of mommy makeover surgery below.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to significant changes in breast tissue. During pregnancy, the breasts will increase in volume, and after childbirth, they will gradually lose volume until you are finished breastfeeding. These fluctuations cause changes in the skin and breast tissue that can lead the breasts to drop downwards and sag.
Breast lifts are often included in mommy makeovers to reposition the breasts to a higher position on the chest. The skin and tissue can be altered in order to lift the breasts upwards and restore their pre-pregnancy position.
During pregnancy and childbirth, the extreme changes in breast volume can lead to permanent changes in the way your breasts look.
After you are finished breastfeeding, you may experience a large decrease in the volume of your breasts, causing them to appear very different. The shape of the breasts may go from round and full to flattened and empty.
Breast augmentation may be included in your mommy makeover procedure to add volume to the breasts. With the use of silicone, saline, or gummy bear implants, augmentation can restore fullness and give the breasts a rounder shape.
The weight fluctuations that occur during pregnancy may lead to major changes in your midsection.
While diet and exercise can help you lose weight after giving birth, you may find yourself left with stretched abdominal muscles and loose skin on your stomach. No amount of exercise or dieting can address these issues, which is why tummy tucks are commonly included in a mommy makeover.
Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess loose skin from the midsection and tightens underlying abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck will help create a flatter, more toned appearance in the abdomen that can be impossible to achieve on your own after pregnancy.
During pregnancy, many women see a change in the volume of their mons pubis. This is the upper region of the vulva where there is the most pubic hair growth.
Pregnancy can cause this area to become very full and bulge outwards more than it did before. This bulging can occur due to a combination of unwanted fat and excess loose skin. While weight loss may cause a decrease in this fullness, some women are still left with a prominent bulge in this area.
Many patients choose to have a monsplasty included in their mommy makeover to address pubic bulging. A monsplasty procedure removes excess skin and any unwanted fat from the area, creating a flatter, more contoured appearance.
Who Is Mommy Makeover Surgery Intended for?
The ideal candidate for a mommy makeover procedure is any woman who wants to resolve the changes that pregnancy and childbirth have made to their body. This includes patients with the following concerns:
- Loose skin around the abdomen
- Sagging or hanging breasts
- Loss of fullness in the breasts
- Change in breast shape or size
- Bulging or excess skin in the pubic area
- Stretched or damaged abdominal muscles
- Excess weight around the midsection
