Pregnancy, child birth, and raising kids can bring lots of new and exciting changes to your life. As any mom will tell you, the adventure of motherhood also has a way of changing the body. Many women find it difficult to regain their pre-pregnancy figure. Mothers are embracing plastic surgery as a way to take control of their bodies. As the popularity of the Mommy Makeover grows, women are increasingly coming to Specialists in Plastic Surgery in hopes of a rejuvenated figure.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures to help return a woman’s body to its pre-child form. Usually a Mommy Makeover couples breast rejuvenation with a body contouring procedure. Whether nursing has caused your breasts to deflate and sag, or you have excess skin at the waist that just won’t go away, there is a procedure for you:
Am I a Candidate?
Many women inquire as to whether they are a Mommy Makeover candidate. A Mommy Makeover is best for women who are done having children—as any future pregnancies would jeopardize the results. An ideal candidate lives a healthy lifestyle and has maintained a relatively normal and stable weight.
$1· Have your breasts lost volume? Appear saggy or uneven in size?
$1· Do your breasts look out of proportion compared to the rest of your body?
$1· Do your nipples point downward? Have you noticed that your areolas appear larger and stretched out?
$1· Do you have loose or excess skin around your abdominals?
$1· Can you not shake added weight in the midsection, hips, or thighs?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, a Mommy Makeover might be right for you.
