A Mommy Makeover Can Bring Back Your Pre-Pregnancy Body
While being pregnant and giving birth to a child is a magical experience for many women, what comes after isn’t always so pleasant. Giving birth to a child can drastically transform your entire body. For instance, you may lose the shape and firmness of your breasts and develop excess saggy skin and stubborn in various parts of your body, especially around the mid-region.
Many women who experience these bodily changes lose their confidence and start to feel uncomfortable in their own skin. It can be difficult to look in the mirror and see a totally different body than what you’re used to.
To help solve these problems, some women workout and take on a new diet plan, but these alone don’t always result in the changes they desire. Because of this, a great deal of women seek out the help of plastic surgery. The most popular procedure for new moms is known as the mommy makeover surgery.
What Is A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a term that is commonly used to refer to a combination of several plastic surgery techniques, all of which address and improve the changes that occur in a woman’s body after they have gone through pregnancy. Today, a mommy makeover is one of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in the world.
What makes a mommy makeover so effective is that there is no single standard procedure followed by the surgeon. Each makeover depends on the individual patient and which parts of the body she would like addressed. In other words, each mommy makeover is customized to suit the unique needs of each patient.
What Procedures Are Involved In A Mommy Makeover?
While a mommy makeover is custom-tailored for each individual, there are certain plastic surgery procedures which most patients usually opt for. These procedures work to improve the most commonly affected parts of the body after pregnancy.
Below, we take a look at the procedures that are most commonly included in a mommy makeover:
Breast Augmentation And Breast Lift
Breast augmentation, which is a surgery to enlarge the breasts, and breast lift, a surgery to enhance the shape and position of the breasts, are procedures many women want to have included in their mommy makeover surgery. This is because the breasts go through major physical changes, including loss of shape and firmness, resulting in drooping, sagging breasts.
The abdomen is another body part that is most affected during and after pregnancy. The abdominal muscles tend to be stretched and separated, and fluctuations between weight gain and loss leads to undesirable changes. A tummy tuck helps achieve a firmer, flatter, and more toned appearance on your abdomen by removing excess skin and fat.
Buttocks lift, or simply, butt lift is where the shape as well as the size of the patient’s butt are enhanced. The most common procedure, known as Brazilian Butt Lift, involves transferring fat from other areas of the body like the thighs to the buttocks.
Liposuction is a procedure where fat is broken down and removed or sucked from the body. In most cases, the thighs, back, neck and chin area, arms, buttocks or abdomen are subject to liposuction.

These are Before and after photos of patient, who chose Mommy Makeover to restore her body to its pre-pregnancy state.
She is 5 ft 6 inches tall and weighs 146 lbs. She was frustrated by the fact that intensive work outs and abdominal crunches were ineffective in restoring her abdominal tone and getting rid of her skin excess. Since pregnancy permanently stretches abdominal muscles and causes an abdominal bulge, tummy exercises are unable to tighten the abdominal wall. Excess abdominal skin and stretch marks do not go away. This requires a Tummy Tuck. During that operation muscles are tightened, and excess skin is removed. She also had a liposuction to define and narrow her waistline.
She had suffered from loss of breast fullness. Breasts had developed sagging from initial engorgement and subsequent deflation after her breast feeding. Mastopexy was done to tighten her breasts and lift them. Nipple and areola were moved to a higher position on her breasts. Breast fullness and size was restored by using a 350-cc sized silicone gel implant. These photos are taken at 4 months after surgery. Her scars will continue to fade and blend over next 12-16 months.
