While you may have loved every second of pregnancy and felt that special bond form between you and your child as you breastfed your baby, you may not like the look that these natural processes left in their wake. Now that you are done breastfeeding and have no future plans to become pregnant again, you may be wondering what you can do about your muffin top and sagging breasts. These may make you feel uncomfortable and may nix your confidence when in public. They may also make you feel uncomfortable in private situations when you want to show a little skin around your significant other. A mommy makeover with Dr. Stephens in Louisiana may be just what you need to achieve your cosmetic goals.
A mommy makeover is not a single procedure. Rather, it is a grouping of multiple procedures designed to reshape your body, lift sagging parts and get rid of the extra drooping skin that your pregnancies left behind. Before undergoing a mommy makeover, you should be sure that you are done with pregnancy and breastfeeding. While you will still be able to become pregnant in the future and may be able to breastfeed, the great results of your makeover could be ruined. However, if you maintain your body with a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can keep up your fabulous shape post-makeover.
A mommy makeover may include several different procedures. First, the tummy tuck may be used to remove extra skin around the abdomen. This procedure can help pull muscles together and generally tighten and tone the entire abdominal region.
If you have extra fat around your abdomen, buttocks, thighs or back that simply will not respond to changes in your diet or exercise regimen, you may also need liposuction as part of your mommy makeover. With liposuction, fat cells are permanently removed. This is particularly helpful when used along with a tummy tuck to smooth and flatten the abdomen.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, your breasts most likely droop and drag. They may have lost their perky shape and may hang lower than you wish. A breast lift can raise up droopy tissues and even change the location of the nipple. An augmentation can add volume to your breasts using implants.
