Being pregnant and giving birth are 2 of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life. Many mothers even joke that it’s difficult to remember life before having kids. But 1 thing that’s easy for many women to recall is how their body looked before they had children.
Which is where the mommy makeover comes in. At our plastic surgery centers in Cypress and Houston, TX, we offer mommy makeover surgery to help women regain the look of their pre-pregnancy body.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The very popular mommy makeover procedure combines multiple body sculpting and breast enhancement procedures in one surgery. Because pregnancy has a tremendous effect on a woman’s figure, it’s common for the body not to “snap back” to the way it looked before pregnancy and childbirth. The mommy makeover is designed to reverse the physical effects of having children, which often include saggy, deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, and excess body fat.
If you have found that your body no longer reflects your active mommy lifestyle, or you want to return to your beautiful pre-baby figure, the mommy makeover can help!
Read on to see what you can look forward to by combining popular aesthetic surgeries into 1 mommy makeover procedure.
Youthful, Perky Breasts
After having a baby, many women find their breasts become saggy or their breast skin loosens after pregnancy and breastfeeding. During a mommy makeover, I can perform breast augmentation with or without a breast lift to enhance the appearance of the breasts back to a more youthful, perky look.
Breast augmentation adds healthy-looking volume and shape to breasts that have “deflated” after nursing. A breast lift restores the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest. Depending on your personal needs and goals, I can perform these procedures separately or do them at the same time during your mommy makeover.
Tighter, Toned Midsection
During pregnancy a woman’s abdomen goes through a noticeable transformation. After stretching to accommodate a growing belly, abdominal skin may no longer hug the body’s curves; instead, it can droop and sag off the lower abdomen (some women call this a “pregnancy pooch”). Additionally, excess fat may stubbornly obscure the shape of the midsection. Tummy tuck surgery addresses these concerns by removing excess skin and fat and draping the remaining skin more tightly over the abdomen.
Diastasis recti is a condition that occurs during pregnancy when a woman’s abdominal muscles separate and do not return to their normal position after childbirth. During the tummy tuck procedure, I can repair abdominal muscles to provide more comprehensive mommy makeover results.
Overall Slimmer Physique
After having children, some women accumulate excess fat in areas of the body, such as the hips, thighs, and back. This fat may prove to be resistant to diet and exercise efforts. During a mommy makeover, we can use liposuction techniques to remove the fat and fine-tune the contours of the body.
