Bringing a child into the world can be an overwhelmingly joyful experience. However, unfortunately, it can also be discouraging as it negatively affects the mother’s body. Women who have become mothers may struggle with the changes to their bodies. The following points are four major reasons to reclaim your body with a Mommy Makeover so that you can look and feel more beautiful and attractive.
Reason #1: Fix Deflated Breasts
A woman’s breasts change significantly during pregnancy and nursing. As they prepare to lactate, the breasts increase in volume. This increase in volume during pregnancy happens regardless of whether the woman plans to breastfeed. After pregnancy or after the mother stops breastfeeding, the breasts lose volume, and in some cases, they lose even more volume than they initially had. This volume loss causes the breasts to appear deflated. Breast augmentation as part of the Mommy Makeover procedure can restore breast volume, firmness, and shape so that they appear fuller and rounder.
Reason #2: Lift Sagging Breasts
The skin of the breasts stretches with the increase in breast volume during pregnancy. Consequently, when the breasts later lose this excess volume, the breast skin remains overly stretched, and the breasts may appear to sag. Breastfeeding can also take a major toll on breast perkiness and may cause sagging breasts. To correct breast sagging, breast lift surgery can be included in your Mommy Makeover procedure. A breast lift can improve breast shape, firmness, and placement on the chest wall so that your breasts look more youthful and natural.
Pregnancy significantly alters the state of the abdomen. The body acquires additional tummy fat, the abdominal skin stretches, and the stomach muscles loosen as the unborn baby grows. It is little wonder that many mothers’ abdomens are altered forever. But with a tummy tuck as part of your Mommy Makeover, your abdomen can once again be flat and toned. Tummy tuck surgery eliminates excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the stomach muscles so that the abdomen is firmer, flatter, and tighter.
Reason #4: Lose Stubborn Fat
Pregnancy forces the body to gain weight, and many women end up gaining even more weight than needed. While exercise and dieting can trigger weight loss after childbirth, these tactics cannot spot reduce. Certain areas of the body may hang onto excess fat no matter how hard you try to get rid of it. Liposuction can be included in your Mommy Makeover procedure to tone these trouble areas, get rid of stubborn fat, and give you the slender body shape you desire.
Breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and liposuction are often combined in a Mommy Makeover procedure to help mothers reclaim their youthful figures.
