Every woman has her own reasons for pursuing plastic surgery. But in the case of mommy makeovers, customized surgical plans designed to slim, shape, and restore the body after childbirth, there are a few common denominators. Here are some of the top motivations that may lead you to consider this combination of breast and body procedures:
- You want a more youthful-looking bust: Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can change the shape and size of your breasts. A breast lift could be a good option if you are dealing with sagging skin and low nipple position. Meanwhile, breast augmentation can correct a deflated look by restoring lost volume. If you want the most comprehensive results, think about pairing both procedures.
- Your stomach has loose skin and stretch marks: Many women struggle with loose and hanging skin after having children. If you are one of them, you may find that your waistline looks undefined, and your clothes no longer fit as comfortably as they once did. A tummy tuck is the most effective way to remove that loose skin — and some stretch marks too. You may be eligible for a skin-only technique that offers unique benefits.
- Your abdominal wall muscles separated during pregnancy: Pregnancy can put so much pressure on your belly that the muscles in front lose their shape. Diastasis recti, the medical term for separated abdominal muscles, is frustrating because it can make your belly stick out. It can even cause lower back pain and urinary incontinence. A tummy tuck brings your six-pack muscles back together in a way that exercise never will.
- You have stubborn pockets of fat that will not go away: Women are encouraged to gain a certain amount of weight during pregnancy. However, it can be difficult to drop that weight after delivery. If you want to eliminate excess fat from areas such as your waist, abdomen, arms, or thighs, liposuction might be the perfect solution.
