Cosmetic Surgery Blog: Is a Mommy Makeover For You?

Pope Plastic Surgery Center - ASPS Member Surgeon

After having a baby, many women struggle to overcome the changes that occur to their bodies due to pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Sometimes even the best balanced diet and exercises won't do the job of bringing your body to the pre-pregnancy look. And when diet and exercise fail, more and more women are turning to a "mommy makeover". A Mommy Makeover is simply cosmetic surgery to lift sagging breasts, reduce saddlebag hips, and tighten the after-baby belly.

The tummy is the primary location affected by pregnancy for obvious reasons. A tummy tuck helps fix loose muscles around the abdomen and is perhaps the key component of a mommy makeover. Either gaining a lot of weight during pregnancy and after multiple births, the abdomen will rarely go back to what it looked like before pregnancy and therefore the sagging effect. A tummy tuck helps restore a flat stomach and create a smoother profile. Liposuction can be done along with a tummy tuck to remove stubborn areas of fat.

Also, women’s breasts either shrink or grow bigger after a pregnancy. A mommy makeover allows women to either get an implant or get breast reduction done. A breast lift procedure removes excess skin under the breast and lifts it up to create a more youthful look.
