The “Mommy Makeover” is designed to help women address effects of childbearing and aging on the face, breasts and body. Mommy makeovers may include surgical or non-surgical treatments and sometimes both. After the journey of childbirth and breastfeeding, many mothers may struggle with delated or sagging breasts, & stubborn fatty deposits.
Following childbirth, it is common for mothers to experience sagging and deflated breasts. Breast enhancement can include a breast augmentation and a breast lift. A breast augmentation will restore lost volume through the insertion of an implant. A breast lift can correct sagging, leaving a perkier and more youthful appearance.
Abdominal muscles and skin stretch during childbirth and it is common to be left with weaker muscle that do not respond to exercise. A tummy tuck will tighten the abdominal muscles and remove excess fat and skin.
Stubborn fat deposits which are unable to be eliminated through diet and exercise can accumulate during pregnancy. Liposuction can help restore and sculpt your body back to its pre-pregnancy contours and shape.
A mommy makeover procedure can help restore your shape post pregnancy and many patients have reported a boost in self confidence after this procedure.
