Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. A “mommy makeover” is a familiar term for a personalized set of cosmetic procedures designed to help a woman address common effects of childbearing, primarily restoring the breasts and body to their pre-pregnancy appearance. Mommy makeovers can include cosmetic surgery, non-surgical treatments, or a combination of both.
When it comes to undergoing a mommy makeover, it is recommended that women be done with childbearing in order to have long-lasting results. If they do plan on becoming pregnant again in the future, non-surgical body contouring and skin treatments can be a cost-effective option. There are also lifting restrictions for the first few weeks after surgery, so it is important to be prepared for help with childcare during this time. Women of all ages can benefit from a mommy makeover, which can help to greatly improve self-confidence!
Mommy Makeover Procedure Options
The breasts and the abdomen are the areas that experience the most change during pregnancy and breastfeeding, however, other areas of the body can be affected as well. Your mommy makeover procedure at Heartland Plastic Surgery can include one, or possibly a combination of the following procedures:
A breast augmentation can help to restore fullness and lost volume to the breasts using saline or silicone breast implants.
The breast lift procedure addresses sagging or drooping breasts, restoring them to a perkier, more youthful position for an improved shape.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can result in excessively large breasts that are uncomfortable or disproportionate. Breast reduction surgery corrects this problem.
A tummy tuck eliminates excess belly skin and tightens weakened or separated abdominal muscles for a flatter tummy.
This procedure is used to eliminate excess fat pockets almost anywhere on the body. Liposuction often combined with other procedures to help further improve results.
A labiaplasty is a surgery that corrects sagging, overly large, or misshapen labia that can cause discomfort or interfere with a woman’s confidence.
In addition to the typical surgical procedures included in a mommy makeover, Heartland Plastic Surgery offers nonsurgical treatments that can be added. These often revitalize the skin and create a youthful appearance.
