What Does a Mommy Makeover Involve?
Pregnancy and childbirth are life-changing experiences that can deeply enrich your life. However, the effects on a woman’s body are also dramatic. For women in the Cincinnati area who want to feel great about their bodies even after having a baby, a Mommy Makeover at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center is a simple solution. It typically includes a tummy tuck, liposuction and a breast procedure.
A Mommy Makeover typically includes a tummy tuck. Although some of your body’s functions and shape returns to normal at about six weeks postpartum, the skin, muscles and flesh of the stomach area remain stretched out and misshapen. No amount of exercise or dieting will restore the pre-pregnancy look of this part of the body. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is the solution to this problem. It is the “home run” to restore the appearance of a healthy abdominal area.
Hormone levels during pregnancy typically make breasts swell as much as one or two cup sizes. After childbirth, lactation can also affect the size of the breasts. When a woman finishes lactating, the size may decrease rapidly, leaving the breasts looking saggy, and the areola can appear misshapen. The effect is called postpartum involution. Enhancement with an implant (breast augmentation), and/or a lift (mastopexy) can fix this problem by reducing excess skin, restoring the pre-pregnancy appearance of the areola and leaving the breasts with an overall fuller look.
Liposuction is a simple way to eliminate excess stubborn areas of fat and contour the body. It is healthy and natural to gain weight during pregnancy. When those extra pounds do not go away afterwards, this procedure is a good option. As long as you keep your weight stable, the results will be long term. A Mommy Makeover commonly includes liposuction around the stomach and hip areas. And for those that desire a little boost to their derrière, why waste the fat? We can simply inject the fat into the buttocks to enhance your overall figure; and the fat makes for an ideal “implant” as it is soft and natural.
