What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy takes a large toll on your body and can leave you with loose skin, excess fat and sagging or uneven breasts. Women often struggle with low self-esteem and body image issues after giving birth. A mommy makeover is a great way to regain your pre-pregnancy body through a series of plastic surgery procedures done all at once.
Mommy makeovers are becoming increasingly popular at our Phoenix office and can include one or more of these procedures:
Breast augmentation can involve breast implants to correct asymmetric breasts, a breast reduction or other forms of breast surgery. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause your breasts to sag, and a breast lift is also a popular option. You should be done breastfeeding before having breast augmentation or a breast lift as it takes time for your breasts to return to their natural size and sensitivity.
Parenthood comes with a lack of sleep and nutrition. It’s difficult to find time to exercise, and liposuction can help you lose stubborn, leftover fat from pregnancy. You should be within 10 or 15 pounds of your goal weight before undergoing liposuction. Liposuction is not an answer for weight loss or obesity.
Your abdominal wall is likely weakened after giving birth, and you may have excess skin tissue you wish to get rid of. An abdominoplasty removes your excess skin, tightens your abdominal muscles and can even get rid of stretch marks on your lower abdomen. Our board-certified plastic surgeon offers the lipoabdominoplasty, which is an innovative procedure that combines liposuction and a tummy tuck.
Before you consider a mommy makeover, be certain you are done having children. Pregnancy after any plastic surgery can reverse your results.
