What Is Typically Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers have been gaining in popularity, and why not? Once a woman has completed her family and isn’t planning to have any more children, she begins to bring some focus back to her and what she wants. Specifically, she wants to have a body that’s pre-pregnancy. Easier said than done, most women will tell you, and that’s exactly why mommy makeovers are in such demand. If this describes you, let’s discover what is typically included in a mommy makeover and what might be right for you.

Be Gone Stretch Marks!woman with stretch marks.

One of the most common surgeries included in a mommy makeover is the tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. This tightens any loose skin from the tummy area since most women are self conscious about their abdomen after childbirth.

It will strengthen abdominal muscles and diminish the signs of stretch marks especially if they are near the excess skin being removed. A tummy tuck will provide the taut look a woman had before having children.

Bring on the Breast Lift!

Breastfeeding can cause those once perky breasts to sag and deflate. Having a breast lift as part of your mommy makeover will return your breasts to their perkier selves, uplifted and giving you a more youthful profile.

New stats confirm breast lift surgery has grown 70% since 2000, and now exceeds breast implants by 2 to 1.

But There’s More

If you want to round out the upper part of your breast, include a breast augmentation surgery. This will add volume to the top of your breast. This can be performed at the same time as the breast lift.

However, if you prefer to size down a bit, breast reduction surgery will reshape and elevate your breasts to create a smaller bust size. Many women find their clothes fit better, they have less back pain, and can exercise more easily to name a few.

It’s All Your Choice

You can decide what combination of mommy makeover surgeries works for you and your goals.

You can add in liposuction if you choose to remove patches of extra skin and fat which you haven’t been able to eliminate with any amount of exercise or diet.

Liposuction can be performed alone or in combination with a tummy tuck or breast reduction. Another bonus is that you can achieve a Brazilian butt lift by moving the fat to your buttocks.
