The Mommy Makeover Procedure: Reversing The Effects Of Pregnancy
Becoming a mom and growing a family is a wonderful part of life for most women. In the past, the natural changes associated with childbirth were accepted and women learned to live with the consequences of pregnancy and childbirth. For women who are not content to live with these changes, a mommy makeover procedure can provide a positive impact in the way they look and feel after having children.
A mommy makeover procedure is often a combination of surgical procedures designed to rejuvenate and reverse the effects of having children. The most common combination of procedures often includes breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Together, this combination of procedures frequently helps to return the shape and appearance of the body back toward its normal, pre-pregnancy condition.
A breast augmentation procedure aims to replenish the breast volume loss as a result of nursing and pregnancy. Implant options include saline, round silicone, or form stable (gummy bear) silicone implants.
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is designed to contour the existing breast tissue. The areola is frequently made smaller and raised. Sensation to the nipple/areola complex is maintained.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is designed to remove and tighten loose skin and stretch marks, tighten the abdominal wall, and rejuvenate the appearance of the belly button and waist.
Now more than ever before, women have a variety of options to rejuvenate and improve the way they look and feel after having children.
