You want to recognize, celebrate and take full advantage of your weight loss achievements. However, even after hitting your weight loss goal, you may have noticed that some things just don't "snap back" the way you would like. 

You aren’t alone. Many women struggle with complaints such as loose skin and stubborn fat, even after weight loss. Keep reading to learn what a customized procedure called a mommy makeover can do for you!

Remove Loose Skin

Loose skin is a top annoyance that can appear after slimming down. When you gain weight, your skin stretches to accommodate your new shape. When you lose weight, your skin might not have the strength that it needs to spring back into place and match your thinner figure.

That is why for most women, a tummy tuck is the cornerstone of your mommy makeover. This procedure will remove the hanging skin from your belly and can also help tighten your abdominal muscles if needed.

Eliminate Stubborn Fat

It’s impossible to spot reduce certain areas of your body with diet and exercise. That’s why you can still have stubborn pockets of fat on your stomach, hips, thighs, or arms after losing weight.

While lifestyle changes can’t target these problem areas, liposuction certainly can. It’s a great way to shape and sculpt your figure. You may find that it helps your clothes fit better, too!

Address Unwanted Breast Changes

Weight loss can cause your breasts to change in a few different ways. For starters, it can cause your breasts to shrink. If you want to restore some of the volume you lost, consider adding breast augmentation to your mommy makeover. It, of course, enhances breast size but augmenting with a breast implant also provides fulness to the upper part of the breast that is oftentimes lost with weight change.

Weight loss can also make your breasts sag. This is due to a lack of skin elasticity as well as changes to your breast tissue and the supporting ligaments. A breast lift may be a good solution because it eliminates excess skin, tightens the breast tissue, and gives an elevated look.

Reward Yourself for Your Hard Work

Losing a significant amount of weight is no easy feat. If a mommy makeover is something that you’re interested in, you might think of it as the ultimate reward to yourself for your all of your hard work!
