What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is not one standardized procedure. It’s a combination of procedures designed to help restore your confidence by lifting, shaping and toning areas affected by having children. Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding all result in permanent changes that often can’t be addressed by diet and exercise, making difficult to reclaim your body on your own. Your breasts may lose volume and sag, you abdominal muscles may weaken and separate, you may have loose skin, and your vagina may stretch or tear. To top it off, hormonal changes can make your body store stubborn fat in unwanted places. All of these changes can negatively impact your self-esteem and overwhelm you both emotionally and physically. Because every woman responds to and experiences pregnancy differently, each mommy makeover is a highly-customized experience. Your mommy makeover may include a variety of procedures and treatments, but those that are commonly performed include:
- Breast augmentation
- Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)
- Breast lift (Mastopexy)
- Vaginal rejuvenation (Vaginoplasty)
- Breast reduction
Every woman’s body is different; just one of these procedures may help you reach your aesthetic goals, or you may need a combination of two or more.
