A mommy makeover is a popular term for a combination of cosmetic surgeries that aim to return your body to your pre-pregnancy figure. Pregnancy may change any woman’s body shape to greater or lesser degrees. If you have finished childbearing and breastfeeding and have tried to regain your figure through diet and exercise to little effect, a mommy makeover may be your best option. At our office in Nashville, you can customize your mommy makeover to address the areas you feel need the most help. The most common areas that need help are the breasts and abdomen, but you may want to improve the appearance of your buttocks and tighten your waist. When you consult with our specialist in Nashville, you can discuss your expectations and learn more about the possibilities.
Some of the main procedures in a mommy makeover include:
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty – This procedure tightens the muscles in your abdomen and removes any loose skin. It is often combined with liposuction because there may be fat deposits that cannot be removed. A tummy tuck may remove stretch marks that are on the excess skin, but may not address all of the stretch marks.
Breast enhancement – There are two main types of breast enhancement, including a breast lift and breast augmentation. In some cases, both are recommended. A breast lift reduces excess skin and lifts the breast to a higher position. The nipples may also be repositioned. This may be the best option if you still have good breast volume. If your breasts sag and have lost volume, you may need breast augmentation. This involves implants that add volume, size and firmness.
Fat removal – Sometimes no matter how hard you exercise and watch your diet, there are fat deposits that will not go away. Fortunately, there is liposuction. Liposuction is a popular procedure for removing fat from the thighs and buttocks, as well as the abdomen.
