Having children is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. Unfortunately, regaining a body that resembles the one that existed before pregnancy can seem like a nearly impossible task for many mothers. After pregnancy, the breasts lose volume and sag due to breastfeeding, while the stomach is typically left with skin that is permanently stretched out. Fat also tends to accumulate around the midsection.
With the “Mommy Makeover,” women can attain a more contoured abdominal area, eliminate excess fat, and reposition or augment the breasts to create a more attractive physical appearance.
The mommy makeover is generally a combination of procedures, which may include:
This procedure has seen a steady increase in popularity since its arrival to plastic surgery a couple of years ago. According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), one of the biggest reasons for the increase in number of procedures performed is because many women are having children much later in their lives. For these mothers, it is much harder to get their bodies back into pre-pregnancy shape because their metabolism has slowed down, making it much harder to lose weight, and their skin has less elasticity.
Aside from the fact that the procedure typically produces great results, mommy makeover surgery is popular because it combines multiple procedures into one single treatment. This surgery saves patients time and allows them to only go through one recovery phase rather than a separate recovery for each surgery.
