A Mommy Makeover is a set of cosmetic procedures to help a mother restore and get back to their pre-pregnancy figure. If you’re more than six months after pregnancy but are still struggling to get rid of the extra weight and flab, a mommy makeover can help you recover your pre-pregnancy body.
Your body undergoes many changes during and after pregnancy, so you and your baby stay healthy and safe. However, many women find their hormones out of whack after pregnancy. The imbalance in hormones can make it difficult to lose the gained weight, and the fat gathered around your waist and breasts begin to sag.
Why Do I Need a Mommy Makeover?
For some women, diet and exercise will be enough to help them trim back down to their pre-pregnancy weight, but it won’t work for everyone. And this is where a mommy makeover can help.
Some areas to look over on yourself are your breasts, stomach, lower back, buttocks, and thighs. Deposits of fat can gather here during and after the pregnancy. You may have developed stretch marks and rolls that you previously didn’t have before pregnancy that have stuck around. Mommy makeovers help shape stubborn areas, so you feel confident in your body.
It’s important to understand that breastfeeding does not result in saggy or deflated breasts. Whether you participated in breastfeeding or not, your breasts grow during pregnancy and sag or reduce after pregnancy.
What Procedures Are in a Mommy Makeover?
Some procedures in a mommy makeover include breast lifts and reductions, tummy tucks, and liposuction. During the consultation, your doctor will help you determine what areas need attention and what procedures are best for you.
Some important information to keep in mind during your consultation:
- Keep your expectations realistic.
- Mommy makeovers are often done as cosmetic procedures and aren’t covered by most insurance plans.
- Having another child can reverse some of the procedures.
