Some ladies who have experienced pregnancy and breastfeeding generally prefer the most popular plastic surgery techniques called “ mommy makeover surgery “ so that they can gain better physical form. One reason for its popularity is that the mommy makeover has no set components; each procedure is custom-tailored to fit the individual patient’s unique needs. However, the surgical approach generally begins with a breast and abdomen contouring procedure, then adding additional constituents as needed. After the period of pregnancy or breastfeeding, the breasts and abdomen are the areas that must be centered around. During pregnancy and breast-feeding, the breasts will enlarge. However, returning back to ‘normal’ may mean a significant loss in breast volume and noticeable sagging. Through the period of a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin and tissues stretch to safely accommodate the growing baby. Unfortunately, after childbirth, these layers may not bounce back to their previous shape.
Mommy makeover surgery might include:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
- Belt Lipoctemy
A mommy makeover can also include a thigh lift, arm lift or a Brazilian butt lift. Depending on the individual surgeon and the recommended set of procedures, a mommy makeover can be performed during one single operation, or for safety reasons, may be spread out over multiple surgical sessions.
Things you need to know about the mommy makeover
– Your surgeon may recommend an overnight recovery suite.
– Your recovery can take from one to two weeks depending on the specific procedures included in your mommy makeover.
– No heavy lifting, including babies – Vigorous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided after your mommy makeover
– A mommy makeover is for non-smokers – Smoking decreases circulation, delaying wound healing and substantially increasing the chance for serious complications to occur; stop smoking for at least four weeks before and four weeks after your mommy makeover.
Belt Lipoctemy (A body lift )may contain these areas :
- Abdominal area – locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back area
Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
