You have become a mother, raised your children, and now feel you have earned the right to now treat yourself, right? You look at your image in the mirror, but it has lost its beauty and appealing, youthful appearance. Do you want to look and feel great again? Advanced Plastic Surgery Center says it is time for a mommy makeover, a procedure tailored to meet your beauty needs. During a mummy makeover, your doctor may recommend different procedures to contour your body depending on what you are looking for. Here is a discussion of four such procedures you may undergo.
As your pregnancy progresses, your abdominal skin and muscles stretch to provide more room to accommodate your developing baby. After successful delivery, your tummy may appear looser than before your pregnancy. You can ask your doctor for a mommy makeover if you are unhappy about the look and feel of your abdominal area. During a tummy tuck, your doctor will remove excess abdominal skin and tighten the muscles. As a result, your stretch marks will improve and may even improve your C-section scars if you had a Cesarean Section delivery.
You can get a surgical breast lift to lift your sagging breasts by removing extra skin to tighten your breast tissue. During a breast lift, your doctor will reposition your nipple and areola to a more natural location but not remove any breast tissue. As a result, you will have more youthful-looking breasts and an uplifted feel. Your doctor can combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation. Breast augmentation surgery involves inserting breast implants to help give your breasts a fuller appearance.
Your breasts may appear larger than before pregnancy, thus making you uncomfortable. Large breasts may also be heavy and pressure your back, causing back pain. Your doctor may recommend a breast reduction to help remove excess breast tissue and reshape your breasts for a more comfortable feel.
You can undergo liposuction if you seek to permanently remove stubborn and unwanted fat in your body, especially after dieting and exercising, to no avail. During your surgery with liposuction, your doctor uses a suction device to remove the excess fat excellently, thus helping you achieve your desired silhouette. However, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.
What Should You Expect After A Mommy Makeover?
After your surgery, you will still be recovering from anesthesia. You will require someone to take you home and care for you for 24 hours. Your doctor will advise staying off work and avoiding strenuous activity for six weeks. Meanwhile, keep up with your follow-up appointments to check on treatment progress.
A mommy makeover can work well for you if you seek a transformation after the many physical changes that come after delivery. Usually, your doctor may combine different procedures you will undergo during surgery, depending on the body areas you wish to address. You can undergo breast enhancement procedures, a tummy tuck, and liposuction to eliminate excess fat from stubborn body areas. As long as you keep healthy, you will continue to enjoy the amazing results of your mommy makeover procedures. You can talk to your doctor to find out if you are a candidate for any mommy makeover procedure.
