A mommy makeover is often referred to as a single surgery, but in reality is a combination of cosmetic procedures that work together to meet a single goal: helping you feel great about your figure again following physical changes due to pregnancy and childbirth. Here are a just a few ways you can customize your mommy makeover for the best possible results.
Contour Your Body
During pregnancy, a number of changes to your body shape occur, including weight fluctuations and stretched-out skin and abdominal muscles. Ideally, your body would spring right back to normal after having your child, but women in the real world know that this is rarely the case.
Body contouring procedures like a tummy tuck and liposuction can help restore shapelier definition to your curves following pregnancy, from enhancing a slimmer waistline to eliminating saggy skin and repairing your tummy muscles for a firmer, flatter midsection. In many instances unsatisfactory healing of a C-section wound may produce and undesirable scar that can be improved with scar revision. Not all tummy tuck procedures require a long incision but this is best determined at the time of consultation.
Enhance Your Breasts
From choosing the perfect breast implant size to combining a lift with your implants or scheduling a breast reduction instead, choosing the right combination of breast enhancement procedures can help you feel sexy and feminine again. Breast enhancement procedures often play a central role in achieving customized results with your mommy makeover.
Reclaiming Your “Privacy”
Following delivery, many women express concerns with the altered appearance or function of the vagina and vulva. These may relate to longstanding worries about the labia and excessive protrusion which may be aggravated by pregnancy or injury sustained during a traumatic delivery with a labial tear or required episiotomy. Some women feel diminished friction during intercourse and attribute this to vaginal laxity or looseness after childbearing. Vaginal rejuvenation and tightening as well as a host of other Female Genital Plastic Surgery procedures may help these women to achieve improved self confidence in the bedroom and restore a sense of intimacy.
Refresh Your Look
The aging process all too often seems to speed up exponentially after having children, so many women include facial cosmetic surgery or nonsurgical med spa treatments with their mommy makeover. If you feel like your skin tone looks dull, your appearance seems tired or you just want a quick pick-me-up to refresh your look, including procedures to renew your face as well as your body can help you feel more confident about your appearance from head to toe.
