Just because you love being a mom doesn’t mean you have to love your post-pregnancy body. If you’re a mom and don’t feel like yourself when you look in the mirror, you’re not alone. Fortunately, a Mommy Makeover can help you get back to your old self by combining breast augmentation with liposuction and tummy tuck.
What Issues Does a Mommy Makeover Address?
A Mommy Makeover addresses several bodily issues common to mothers, such as the following.
More than half of all mothers will get stretch marks. In addition to these stretch marks, you may get loose, flabby skin that will not retract despite your best efforts. You shouldn’t feel alone. It’s challenging to get your skin to return to a state of firmness without undergoing a surgical procedure due to the hormonal changes your body goes through during pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover tummy tuck will strengthen your abdominal muscles and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Loss of Breast Volume
Sometimes, pregnancy, nursing, or the combination of both can cause the shape and volume of your breasts to change. Typically, most mothers say that their breasts do not change for the better. Luckily, a Mommy Makeover breast augmentation will restore your breasts’ initial volume. You can also modify the shape of your breasts with silicone or saline implants during this procedure.
Loss of Breast Firmness
Mothers who’ve nursed will often have sagging breasts. How does this happen? The skin on your breast expands to make room for your growing milk ducts and milk production. Once you stop feeding, your milk ducts shrink as your milk supply decreases. However, your skin usually loses its elasticity during this process, causing your breasts to sag. A breast lift will restore your breasts to their pre-pregnancy firmness.
A Mommy Makeover can get rid of that persistent fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise. In particular, mothers struggle to lose their “kangaroo pouch” because their uterus hasn’t fully retracted and their abdominal walls have weakened. Both issues can cause your lower abdomen to protrude.
