When it comes to my wife, I may be a bit biased but to me, she’s superwoman. On top of work, extracurricular activities and everything in between, being a mom is a full time gig; as soon as a woman becomes a mother their focus is no longer on themselves but the wellbeing of their family. For this reason I want to shine the spotlight back on all of you mothers out there and share a procedure that is all about you: the mommy makeover.
Due to the physical effects pregnancy and childbirth have on a woman’s body, no amount of diet and exercise can remedy the sagging breasts from breastfeeding or the weakened abdominal muscles in the stomach. Mommy makeover is multi-faceted because it’s a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures performed at the same time. From perkier breasts with a breast augmentation and breast lift to a tighter waistline with a tummy tuck, mommy makeover addresses multiple concerns at once. An added benefit is that it also reduces your amount of required downtime versus if you had each procedure done one at a time.
In part one of my mommy makeover series I wanted to touch on some of the basics that make up a mommy makeover. Below is a helpful guide breaking down some of main components that go into mommy makeover to help my patients regain their pre-baby body: tummy tuck, liposuction, breast reduction, breast lift and breast augmentation.
One important thing I can’t stress enough is for my mommy makeover patients to wait until after they are done having children before considering a mommy makeover, body contouring or breast enhancement procedures because the effects of pregnancy can reverse your results. Stay tuned for part two of my mommy makeover series where I will go into more detail on the benefits of the different procedures I combine.
