Even though you love your children, you may not love what pregnancy has done to your body. Stretched skin, sagging breasts, and stubborn fat accumulations are often a part of post-pregnancy life. A mommy makeover can undo the damage and restore your youthful shape.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy can be one of the most joyful events in your life, but it also causes some of the biggest changes your body will ever experience. A mommy makeover is a customized procedure that targets your areas of concern to help you regain the figure you had before having children. No two mommy makeover procedures are the same. Your Longwood Plastic Surgery surgeon will review your goals and design a surgical plan to achieve them.
What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
There are many benefits to a mommy makeover beyond improvements in your appearance. We understand that pregnancy changes your body in many ways, and we work with you to restore not just your shape, but your confidence.
A More Sculpted Figure
A mommy makeover helps you achieve a slimmer, more contoured figure. Along with flattening your stomach and enhancing your breasts, your surgeon may also use liposuction to shape your curves and give you a proportionate, sculpted appearance.
Tighter Abdominal Muscles
Pregnancy can cause the separation of the muscles in your abdomen. This separation can cause the appearance of a “pooch” or abdominal laxity. It also weakens your core and can affect your posture. A mommy makeover repairs these muscles to give you a tighter stomach and a stronger core.
A mommy makeover can make you feel good about your appearance again, which positively affects your life. You will fit better into your clothes and feel more confident wearing things you enjoy. If your post-pregnancy body held you back, a mommy makeover can be a freeing experience.
What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can include a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures to help you reach your pre-baby goals. Most mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck to address the abdominal area, breast augmentation or lift to restore sagging breasts and liposuction to slim and sculpt. Besides these core procedures, a mommy makeover may also include the following:
- Thigh lift
- Arm lift
- Breast reduction
- Breast lift
- Facial procedures
- Fat transfer
- Laser treatments or chemical peels
At LPS, we want your mommy makeover to leave you feeling restored and rejuvenated. Instead of looking as good as you did before your pregnancy, we aim to help you look (and feel) even better.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Good candidates for a mommy makeover want to undo the effects of pregnancy and restore a more youthful-looking figure. We recommend that mommy makeover candidates meet these criteria:
- No health problems that would affect your safety
- At least six months to a year since your last pregnancy
- No plans for future pregnancies
Good candidates for a mommy makeover have reasonable expectations and are prepared to take the necessary time for recovery.
