The Mommy Makeover Offers Options
The human body is surprisingly resilient. It can heal and rejuvenate itself even after being placed under severe stress. The skin, in particular is a very tough organ that remains resilient for years, but after undergoing a pregnancy, it can be damaged beyond repair. You may start to develop excess sagging skin and fat deposits that look unsightly after having children.
For women seeking post pregnancy makeovers, one of the first factors to consider is their skin and muscle tone. Often, women find that pregnancy has left its mark behind in the form of stretch marks, sagging skin, and flabby muscles. A mommy makeover can be a good option, for those who want to restore their previous shape and boost their confidence.
It is important to have realistic expectations, as outcomes can vary between individuals. That said, when mommy makeovers are performed by skilled plastic surgeons, they can provide exceptional results.
A Useful Solution for Skin and Flab Issues
For many women, stretch marks on the abdomen and other parts of the body can be their number one enemy. Stretch marks can be treated with other treatment methods, but their rate of success is low when compared to a mommy makeover.
In addition to stretch marks, some women may find it difficult to lose the last few pounds of fat on their body after giving birth. They may stick to a careful diet and steady exercise, but still be at a loss when it comes to the fat around their abdomen, thighs, or other areas. A tummy tuck or body lift can help treat this problem.
A mommy makeover may include a tummy tuck and body lift to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen and other areas of the body. The muscles of the abdominal walls may also be tightened to give the tummy a smoother appearance. The procedure may also reduce the appearance of stretch marks and improve the contours of the body.
Eliminate Sagging Breast Skin
For many women, pregnancy can also make the breasts sag. In the months following pregnancy, you may notice that the contours of your breasts are not as perfect as they feel they should be. if you are wondering what to do about sagging breasts, loss of symmetry, and other similar issues, a breast lift as part of a mommy makeover may be a good option. A breast lift will remove excess skin from the area, and thus correct sagging.
A mommy makeover may also include a breast augmentation. Unlike a lift, an augmentation involves the use of implants containing either silicone or salt water. They will be placed inside the chest cavity to give the breasts a fuller appearance. Based on your individual needs and preferences, surgeons may offer implants in varied textures, shapes, and sizes.
Reduce Excess Fat
Many women also choose to undergo liposuction as part of a mommy makeover treatment to look their best after giving birth. Liposuction can be performed on the abdomen, thighs, and even the upper arms to get rid of excess fat deposits. During the procedure, a tube is inserted under the skin to suck out the excess fat.
