This Mother’s Day you deserve to do something extra special for you. You give your family 100% all year long; now it’s time to give a little back to yourself. The Mommy Makeover is the perfect comprehensive solution to all your body insecurities that come with motherhood and a post-baby body.
What is The Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a full-body makeover solution for the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. While having children is one of the most beautiful life experiences, sometimes the aftermath may leave you feeling unlike yourself. Also, getting your pre-baby body back after taking the time to enjoy and care for your newborn can be very difficult. Fortunately, the mommy makeover addresses both the breasts and body, leaving you more confident with your whole image. For optimal results, it is recommended that you wait to do such a procedure until you are done having children. This is because having more pregnancies may reverse some of the effects of surgery.
What Does It Address?
Starting with pregnancy, a woman’s breasts will become larger and heavier. The heaviness will cause the skin to sag, especially once the breasts shrink after you go through childbirth. To correct this Dr. Ellen can do two procedures: a breast lift and enhancement. With a lift, Dr. Ellen addresses the position of the breast and lifts it higher to a more youthful position. For patients looking to add volume back into their breasts, an augmentation with implants may be necessary.
When a woman is pregnant the stomach grows, and the abdominal muscles and skin stretch to allow room for the baby to grow. After childbirth these same muscles will begin to contract, but even with diet and exercise, some loose skin and muscle may remain. The solution to this would be a tummy tuck, liposuction, or a combination of both. A tummy tuck will remove any loose skin and pull the muscles to a tighter position. Since liposuction is not meant to provide drastic weight loss it is important that patients are with 15 lbs. of their goal.
