MOMMY MAKEOVER PLANO, TX
After childbirth, many women experience dramatic physical changes around their abdomen, breasts and several other areas of the body.
Sometimes it’s hard to feel completely like yourself when your body has undergone such transformations. That’s where a Mommy Makeover comes in as a complete solution for getting back to feeling your absolute best.
WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
The phrase “Mommy Makeover” serves as an umbrella term for all the surgical procedures utilized in the rejuvenation of the areas most affected by childbirth. The entire makeover involves a number of procedures that include, but are not limited to breast lift, breast reduction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
The beauty of a mommy makeover is that it can be 100% customized to fit your specific needs and desires. Even with the same procedures, no two mommy makeovers will be completely identical. Breast augmentation is often at the top of the list, however, tummy tucks and liposuction are recommended for those who struggle with weight loss and sagging skin.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding often result in breast deflation and a decrease in tissue mass. A mommy makeover can restore your desired shape or even enhance your original form. Breast augmentation is designed to provide a patient with their ideal, or pre-pregnancy breast size and tone.
Mommy makeover procedures can also remedy issues that come from losing the baby weight. A breast lift can eliminate the appearance of sagging, asymmetrical breasts and provide a perfect, healthy tone. A breast reduction procedure can tone breasts that have become larger from pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Tummy tuck procedures allow you to get rid of excess skin and fat in your abdominal area. Sometimes diet and exercise just isn’t enough. Even while following strict workout and diet regimens and experiencing noticeable weight loss, there’s still excess skin around your abdomen that you can’t do anything about. Liposuction is the suggested option for those who want to go a step further and remove excess body fat from the thighs, arms, neck, abdomen, and back. A complete mommy makeover is the remedy for all these desires and more.
IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER RIGHT FOR ME?
An ideal candidate for a mommy makeover is a woman who is healthy and has had their last child. Your plans for breastfeeding and future pregnancies should be taken into consideration before scheduling your mommy makeover. The timing of postpartum breast augmentation depends on if you have been breastfeeding, are currently breastfeeding or plan to.
Some surgeons recommend waiting until after the birth of your last child before you commit to your mommy makeover to avoid repeated surgery. It’s not uncommon to even wait until your children are grade school-aged to begin planning your makeover. You can still have a perfectly normal pregnancy after a mommy makeover, however, the best results occur when there is no further stress to the restored areas.
