Most everyone would agree that mothers love their children. When they look at them, it’s as if they cannot imagine their life without them. However, when they look at their bodies and the toll pregnancy and childbirth have taken on their physique, the reaction is likely not same. Many women realize that their bodies have dramatically changed since having children. The breasts may be sagging or lacking in volume, and the abdomen probably has excess fat and skin that has been unresponsive to diet and exercise. In addition, most mothers notice they carry excess weight throughout their bodies.
The good news is that by combining one or more plastic surgery procedures as part of a Mommy Makeover, women can gain their pre-pregnancy bodies back. You already love your little ones, and now it’s time to start loving your body!
A Mommy Makeover may include one or more of the following:
- Breast augmentation: Corrects loss of volume after breastfeeding and pregnancy. Using the insertion of saline or silicone implants, patients can achieve an increase in breast size as well as improvement in breast shape.
- Breast lift: Corrects the appearance of sagging breasts due to loss of skin elasticity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight changes. In cases where there is breast sagging and a loss of volume, a breast lift can be combined with an augmentation.
- Liposuction: Removes excess, stubborn fat from any area of the body while creating better tone and definition in the specified area. Common liposuction areas included in the Mommy Makeover procedure are:
- Upper arms
- Tummy tuck surgery: Corrects stretched abdominal muscles, sagging skin, and excess fat in the abdominal region. Dr. Taylor will remove excess fat, trim unwanted skin, and suture the abdominal muscles together for a more toned and slender midsection.
Many women who have undergone a Mommy Makeover find that they are more confident about their body and gain a better self-image. These procedures can help a woman get that pre-baby body back and perhaps also gain a physique that’s even better than the one she had before having children. During your consultation, Dr. Taylor will evaluate your goals and problem areas to determine the best procedure(s) to meet your individual needs.
