Mommy Makeover: How to Customize for Your Needs

There is no greater joy for women than the joy of being a mother. The beautiful bond between mother and child lasts a lifetime. Unfortunately, pregnancy and breastfeeding can damage her body’s youthful contour, leaving many mothers feeling less alluring and more matronly. Today, there are multiple solutions to the aesthetic problems a woman’s body suffers during pregnancy.

The Mommy Makeover is a combination of different cosmetic procedures designed to restore a mother’s body to its stylish figure. The best benefit to a Mommy Makeover is women can customize the procedure to fix the specific aesthetic issues childbearing has brought them. Whether enhancing her breasts, tightening her tummy, or removing the stubborn fat which seems to ignore diet and exercise, a Mommy Makeover can deliver a custom solution many mothers require.

Here are the most popular areas Dr. Waltzman addresses for women who are seeking to return their bodies to the youthful and appealing figure they enjoyed before motherhood.

Breasts

A woman’s breasts are a beacon to her femininity. When they sag, droop or lose volume, she often feels she lost her girlish figure. Breast surgery can resolve the issues many mothers face after childbearing.

Breast augmentation uses implants to restore volume and enhance the breasts’ shape. With multiple options available, breast implants can restore a mother to her pre-pregnancy breasts, or improve upon the breasts she had before having children.

Often after pregnancy, the breasts can become vulnerable to gravity. They lose support because of overstretched tissue causing nipples to fall and point downward. A breast lift can defy gravity and raise drooping nipples to their normal position, restoring the perky appearance which we all find appealing.

Many mothers require both implants and a lift to bring their breast to full glory. A woman understands when she feels good about her breasts, she enhances her sensuality and self-esteem.

Abdomen

Although the breasts may be negatively affected from pregnancy and breastfeeding, the tummy is an area which needs a lot of attention. During pregnancy, the abdominal wall is stretched to its limit and often loses its elasticity and support. When this happens, muscle damage and excess skin can leave a tummy less taut and more sagging. Stretch marks may also become prevalent.

tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is designed to tighten the abdominal wall, remove excess fat and skin, and diminish stretch marks. There are two forms of a tummy tuck, a mini-tuck or full abdominoplasty. The full tummy tuck will treat the aesthetic problems from the top of the abdomen on down to the pubic area, restoring abdominal support and eliminating excess skin. A mini-tuck will deal specifically with the lower abdominal area when a full tummy tuck is not necessary.

Whatever procedure is necessary, the tummy tuck is the perfect complement to any Mommy Makeover procedure because it helps restore that tight belly necessary for the stunning shape all women want.

Unwanted Fat

Stubborn fat can cause serious problems to a mother’s shape. Whether it’s a result of age, pregnancy or both, it’s always unwelcome. Liposuction can remove unsightly fat pads from the back, butt, thighs or abdomen to deliver a smoother, tighter figure. Combined with other Mommy Makeover procedures, a mother can feel better when choosing her wardrobe or finding the perfect bathing suit for those summer activities.

Liposuction is often a significant part of other body contouring procedures like a breast lift or tummy tuck, or it can be a standalone procedure.

CoolSculpting

When less invasive fat removal is better suited, CoolSculpting is a great option to improve body contour. This procedure works wonders on the flanks, upper arms, buttocks, and abdomen. It freezes away the fat leaving a more defined body contour. Mothers can add this treatment to a Mommy Makeover, but it’s a standalone procedure.

The advantage of CoolSculpting over Liposuction is it’s less invasive and offers minimal risk and no recovery. Also, its versatile enough to correct excessive fat which haunts areas like the upper arm and upper back.

Customize

Whether your body needs minor correction from the effects of pregnancy or a major surgical plan to address multiple contour problems, a Mommy Makeover is flexible enough to deliver the results you need and want.
