Motherhood is a gratifying, special job for any woman. However, it can really take a toll on a woman’s body. Women who experience significant weight changes during or after pregnancy may notice sagging skin in the abdomen. A focus on the children can also result in unwanted fat that tends to accumulate in the midsection as well. The breasts, after pregnancy and breastfeeding, may lose their natural volume and positioning on the chest and may deflate and sag. All of these changes can make a woman feel self-conscious about the negative changes that have occurred to their body, but with a mommy makeover, Houston, TX women no longer have to worry!
What is a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeover is a phrase that describes a series of treatments performed to help a woman recover her youthful appearance back after pregnancy. It may include a combination of surgeries including:
- Breast lift – the breast lift focuses on lifting the placement of the breasts higher up on the chest and repositioning, if necessary, the nipple and areola.
- Breast augmentation – volume loss is improved along with overall size with breast augmentation, during which implants are placed in the breasts.
- Liposuction – using a wand like device called a cannula, liposuction manually removes areas of unwanted fat that might be stubborn and resistant to changes in diet and exercise.
- Tummy tuck – the removal of unwanted fat in the midsection, along with excess skin, allows the patient to achieve a tighter tummy area.
