With more time off for the holidays and the new year coming up, it’s the perfect time to restore your pre-pregnancy body with a mommy makeover! A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures to address changes that have occurred after pregnancy and childbirth. If restoring your body and confidence is part of your New Year’s resolution, here’s what you need to know:
What Procedures to Include
The mommy makeover is highly customizable, so you can choose the procedures you need to address your unique concerns. The most commonly performed procedure after pregnancy is the tummy tuck. The abdominal area is highly affected by pregnancy, resulting in loose skin and tissue. With a tummy tuck, the abdominal tissue is tightened and excess skin is removed to achieve a toned appearance. Liposuction techniques can be used at the same time if stubborn fat is present.
The breasts are another area highly affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you experience unwanted changes to your breasts after pregnancy, you might consider a procedure like a breast reduction to address enlarged breasts, or an augmentation with implants to restore volume loss. You might also consider adding a breast lift if you experience excess skin and sagging.
The Benefits of Combining Procedures
You might’ve thought you had to have each of your procedures done separately, however, it’s perfectly safe and even more beneficial to combine them. By having your procedures done at once, you won’t have to go through separate recovery processes. Instead, your surgical sites will heal together to reveal full-body rejuvenation. You can also expect to save money on fees by having the procedures done in one sitting.
