Pregnancy and childbirth are amongst the most significant, if not the most significant, events in a woman’s life. During pregnancy, women can gain between twenty to forty pounds on average and experience substantial stretching of the lower abdomen. Additionally, nursing can cause stretching and sagging of the breasts.
While a strict post-natal exercise and nutritional regimen can help a new mother’s body achieve some semblance of pre-pregnancy shape, it is perfectly normal for women to miss and yearn for the body they had before childbirth.
Some women even put-off having children because of fear of the changes that happen to their bodies. This is perfectly understandable – but fortunately, a mommy makeover offers the ideal solution to reversing the changes that occur to a mothers’ physique during pregnancy and child-raising.
This is what makes the mommy makeover so popular – the fact that, with the right guidance, advice, and expertise, a mother can restore her appearance to pre-motherhood form and achieve a more toned physique.
A mommy makeover is a series of aesthetic and cosmetic procedures that are generally performed in a single session. They can drastically reverse the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing on a woman’s body.
Which procedures are included in any particular mommy makeover, though, are unique to each mommy – which is a key reason for their popularity! Some new mothers are most concerned about stretch marks on their lower abdomen. Others are more troubled by stretch marks and a loss of shape to the breasts.
Whatever the concern, a mommy makeover is fully customizable according to the requirements of each specific patient.
For those mommies displeased with their now stretched lower abdomen, a tummy tuck offers the ideal solution to removing excess skin and eliminating stretch marks. It is also not uncommon for pregnancy to cause a separation of the abdominal muscles, a medical condition that is easily treated with a tummy tuck. Liposuction may also be combined with a tummy tuck to remove superficial layers of fat and give a new mommy a boost towards achieving the physique she desires.
During nursing, the breasts swell considerably. But as a baby stops breast-feeding and moves to a bottle and more solid food, a mothers’ breasts begin to droop with the loss of milk and as a result of breast-feeding.
Breast surgery procedures are available to new mommies to help them restore full, tight, youthful breasts. Whether only looking to reshape your breasts with a breast lift, or perhaps take the opportunity to enhance them in size with a breast augmentation, there are many options available during a mommy makeover.
Mommy makeovers are an increasingly popular procedure, and it’s easy to see why. As a fully customizable solution to the physical changes that happen during pregnancy, a mommy makeover allows mothers to experience the joy of motherhood while looking their absolute best.
