While body contouring procedures offer impressive and long-lasting results, they aren’t magic. It’s important to know that these surgeries won’t prevent you from gaining weight in the future, which is something that can diminish your cosmetic outcome. You’ll need to follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain your sculpted new look.
Fortunately, living well doesn’t have to be difficult. The tips below can help you keep a stable weight and general level of fitness after liposuction, tummy tuck, or a similar surgery.
After a tummy tuck, you may or may not go down a pant size. Just because you do not have to resize your wardrobe after this procedure, that does not mean the abdominoplasty was unsuccessful.
It’s not unusual for individuals considering a tummy tuck to have excess fat or sagging skin above the pubic bone (medically known as the mons pubis). Abdominoplasty is designed to remove fat and tighten loose skin in the abdominal area, which can have a positive impact on the appearance of the mons pubis. However, if the pubic area is more than minimally saggy, a tummy tuck won’t help enough.
Liposuction is one of the best ways to get rid of fat. More than 258,000 people underwent the procedure in 2018. If you have stubborn fat deposits that diet and exercise just won't get rid of, liposuction can be the cherry on top of your fitness journey and put the finishing touches on your new body contour.
A mommy makeover can consist of any combination of body contouring procedures designed to get you back to your pre-baby body. Childbirth takes a large toll on the body, and the changes many women experience can’t be reversed through diet and exercise alone.
A mini tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an alternative to the standard tummy tuck. It’s designed to address:
- Pooching in the lower belly
- Loose, excess skin below the navel
- Stretch marks underneath the belly button
It’s a great option for patients with sagging abdominal skin caused by aging, as well as patients looking to tone and tighten the lower portion of their stomach.
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. As a mom, you deserve the world this year. A mommy makeover could be exactly what you need. This comprehensive procedure has numerous benefits and will remind you that it’s okay to take time for yourself.
A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of breast and body procedures that are most commonly used to refresh and reshape a woman’s post-pregnancy body. Because of this, our patients tend to believe that a mommy makeover is only for mothers. However, since a mommy makeover includes multiple plastic surgery procedures tailored to your needs, it can be performed whether or not you’ve had children.
Sure, celebrities talk about how their bodies "bounce back" after pregnancy and re-committing to fitness. But what about the rest of us? After having a baby, you may notice that the skin is not completely returning to normal despite efforts like crunches, running, weight lifting, dieting, etc.
