While pregnancy can be a beautiful and wondrous experience, many women long for the body they had before they became a mom. The joys of having children and building a family are immeasurably valuable. But the toll childbearing can take on a woman’s body is significant.
Mothers who have given birth to multiple children and have breastfed each of them are highly likely to be physically altered from childrearing. Even women who exercise and implement a balanced diet will experience lasting major bodily changes. This is where the Mommy Makeover comes in.
What Can a Mommy Makeover Really Do For My Body?
Over time, a woman’s breasts begin to lose volume and start to sag, giving them a deflated quality. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is designed to lift sagging breasts by removing stretched, loose skin and bring back that beautiful firmness.
Loose skin, a belly bulge, and stretch marks are commonplace among mothers. The belly bulge is often the result of a separation of the abdominal walls. This results from the stretching of the stomach during pregnancy. This can be rectified with the tummy tuck.
During a tummy tuck, the abdominal wall muscles are tightened and excess fatty tissue and skin are removed to improve the body contour. The abdominal muscles can only be rejoined surgically. The goal is a narrower, flatter abdomen. Realistic expectations are important, so remember that the tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss.
