If You Miss Your Old Body, Consider a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy is a life-changing experience for a woman because she undergoes so many changes, both physically and emotionally, when she becomes a mother. In addition, her body changes dramatically due to factors like hormonal changes, childbirth, breastfeeding, and weight gain.
Often, after childbirth, many women find it difficult to step out of the house as a result of a lack of confidence. Pregnancy can lead to excess weight gain, loose skin, and sagging breasts. A woman’s body no longer looks the same as it did when she was in her 20s, and this can undermine her confidence.
This is why many women choose to undergo a mommy makeover. This package of procedures can include a breast lift, breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. They are customized to address the unique aesthetic needs of each patient.
This is a cosmetic procedure in which the size and projection of the breasts are enhanced using breast implants. These implants can be filled with either silicone gel or a saline solution. With this procedure, the breasts are given a fuller and rounder appearance.
A breast lift is meant for women who just want to firm and tighten their breasts. Like the name suggests, a breast lift, or mastopexy, lifts sagging breasts to make them perkier. Implants are not involved in this procedure.
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure in which excess fat cells are removed from areas like the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. During liposuction, the surgeon makes several small incisions in the desired area. The surgeon then inserts a thin cannula through these incisions and then moves it around to loosen the fat cells. These cells are then suctioned out through a vacuum.
A tummy tuck is a procedure in which excess fat around the abdomen is removed to give a tighter and toned appearance. The surgeon makes incisions around the abdomen through which excess tissue is removed. The skin is then sutured and excess skin is trimmed, leaving you with a tummy that is free of bulges and love handles.
Preparing for the Surgery
All of the procedures in a mommy makeover are invasive procedures. They should be performed only under the guidance of a highly skilled plastic surgeon. Always keep realistic expectations and discuss all your goals with your surgeon. Try to get a representation of how you will look like after a surgery. This will help you make an informed decision.
Results of the Surgery
Each of these surgeries requires a downtime of at least three weeks where you will need to take complete rest. There will be some amount of swelling and tenderness, a temporary side effect of the surgeries. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and take all medications as and when prescribed.
Results are completely visible after the swelling has completely come down. Results are long-lasting, but can vary from person to person. In most cases, you can maintain the results by following a healthy lifestyle.
