When you are done having children, one of your first priorities is to get your pre-pregnancy body back. Many women use diet and exercise to try to lose that pregnancy weight and get back in shape, yet these methods are not always completely successful. A mommy makeover is a great way to get your body back to the shape you prefer. The process may include a number of different procedures depending on your personal needs. There are three main choices for a mommy makeover that are the most common.
Breast Lift with Optional Augmentation
Especially if you chose to breastfeed your baby, you may be experiencing some significant sagging of the breasts. This is completely normal after breastfeeding because the breasts go through so many changes in size during that time, and the skin and tissues become stretched. Some women also lose breast volume when they breastfeed. Most women choose to have a breast lift with their mommy makeover, with some also choosing to have augmentation.
No matter how hard you diet and exercise, some areas of the body just have stubborn fat that is difficult to get rid of. Love handles is the most common of these areas. If you plan to get a tummy tuck, liposuction is a good supplemental procedure to remove excess fat from the love handles and other abdominal areas. This will make the tummy tuck go much more smoothly.
Often, it is not possible to restore the abdominal muscles and tissues through exercise alone. Pregnancy and childbirth put an enormous strain on the abdomen. You may be able to lose your pregnancy weight, but your abdomen may still be flabby and unattractive due to the stretching and tearing of these tissues and muscles. A tummy tuck repairs the damage surgically so that the muscles can heal properly and regain strength through exercise and diet..
