Becoming a mother is an exciting, wonderful, life-changing experience, but there is no denying that it can have undesirable cosmetic effects on the body. Many new mothers struggle with pregnancy weight gain, deflated-looking breasts, stretch marks and loose saggy skin in the tummy area.
These changes can be difficult to accept, and often have a negative impact on a woman’s feelings of self-esteem. Diet and exercise can help but may not be enough to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. Dr. Hilton Becker performs mommy makeover procedures in Boca Raton, Florida to help you reclaim your body, so you can look and feel as attractive as you did before childbirth and breastfeeding altered the appearance of your body.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures to address a woman’s post-pregnancy body issues. This combination of treatments may or may not be performed in a single procedure. Surgical procedures commonly performed in a mommy makeover include:
This is a surgical procedure to tighten abdominal muscles and remove excess fat and skin to create a firmer, smoother, flatter belly. A tummy tuck can also remove stretch marks located on the excess skin removed in the procedure.
This may involve breast implants to augment breasts that have deflated and lost volume through pregnancy and breastfeeding. If volume is not an issue but stretched skin is causing the breasts to sag, a breast lift procedure can help restore the pre-pregnancy appearance
Weight gain is an inevitable part of a healthy pregnancy. Unfortunately, “baby weight” is not always easy to lose. Liposuction is often included in a mommy makeover, in combination with a tummy tuck, to reduce excess fat deposits, accentuate the waist, and add definition to the abdomen.
In addition to surgical procedures, a mommy makeover may include non-surgical cosmetic treatments. For example, laser skin resurfacing may be performed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks that are cannot be removed in a tummy tuck.
Reasons to Have a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover can help a woman look and feel beautiful again after bringing a child into the world. Many women choose this treatment as a gift to themselves and a reward for what they have accomplished. This combination of procedures may be performed to:
- Restore volume to deflated breasts
- Lift sagging breasts
- Flatten, tone, and smooth the belly
- Reduce stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise efforts
- Remove stretch marks on the lower abdomen
- Restore the patient’s confidence in her own appearance
