Many mothers struggle with the weight gain and body distortions that come with pregnancy. The effects of these body changes can leave the mother feeling self-conscious and vulnerable about what their body now looks like. Luckily, there are surgical options that can drastically improve the post-baby body. The Mommy Makeover can include,
Breast Augmentation: Breast augmentation can be done using silicone gel breast implants, saline breast implants or anatomical breast implants. The implants will give you fuller breasts.
Breast Lift: Once your breasts have gone through the process of pregnancy and producing milk, they may suffer from stretching, leaving them saggier than before. A breast lift can help reduce the sagginess and lift them to where they used to sit.
Abdominoplasty: Women are blessed to have bodies that can undergo the stress of having a baby. Pregnancy can leave the body looking different from what it was before. For example, the stomach muscles can stretch making it harder for the tummy to be firm and flat again. Loose skin commonly occurs resulting in a sagging appearance. An abdominoplasty can tighten the muscles and remove excess skin, to help you feel more confident.
Liposuction: Liposuction is ideal for mothers who have areas of excess fat even after toning their bodies.
So, how soon after the baby is it safe to get a mommy makeover? You may want to consider holding off until you have lost the baby weight. You should also wait until you are done breast feeding for at least three months if you are considering breast surgery.
