If you’ve been through pregnancy, you’ve likely noticed some changes to your body that you’re not happy to see. Perhaps the skin of your abdomen is stretched out and saggy, or your abs are lost under a layer of stubborn fat.
If you’re not happy with the effects of pregnancy on your body, a mommy makeover may be just what you need to undo these changes and get your confidence back.
The Mommy Makeover Options
Just as no two pregnancies are the same, no two mommy makeover procedures will be the same. Some women want a tummy tuck with liposuction for their thighs but are completely happy with their breasts.
Other women are fine with their tummies but want their breasts restored to their previous height and volume and their thighs reduced.
While most mommy makeovers address the breasts and tummy and plenty more also address the thighs and buttocks, the choice is yours.
Addressing Your Torso
A growing fetus can stretch your skin, create stretch marks, separate your abdominal muscles and leave you with clumps of fat that diet and exercise can’t budge. Liposuction and a tummy tuck can address all of these issues.
If you had a C-section and aren’t happy with your scar, it’s also possible for your surgeon to revise that scar during your tummy tuck.
Reshaping Your Breasts
If your breasts have lost volume, height or shape due to pregnancy, breastfeeding or both, a breast augmentation may be just the right choice for recreating your pre-pregnancy bust.
A breast lift procedure with implants is a popular option, as well. If you have plenty of natural breast tissue, a lift alone may be enough to give you the results you want.
Thigh and Buttock Concerns
If your thighs or buttocks have put on volume during pregnancy, liposuction can help whittle them back down and give you a great shape again.
If you gained and then lost significant weight, then you may even want a lift procedure to trim away saggy skin and remove saddlebags.
A Word About Guilt
Some women hesitate to get a mommy makeover because well-meaning friends and family have referred to the body changes as ‘part of motherhood’ or ‘evidence of their children.’
You can love your child and want your pre-pregnancy body back. A confident mother is a happy mother, and a happy mother is a good mother. You shouldn’t feel guilty for improving yourself. After all of the sacrifices you made during your pregnancy, you deserve it.
