After childbirth, many women find that dieting and exercise just aren’t enough to get their bodies back to their pre-baby look. Sometimes, even when you try your hardest, the natural effects of childbirth can’t be reversed through lifestyle changes alone. When this is the case, many women opt for a mommy makeover, which can combine multiple procedures, including a tummy tuck, into one.
Achieve Your Beach-Ready Body
A tummy tuck is such an integral part of any mommy makeover, as the stomach is one of the areas that is most affected by pregnancy. Because your skin naturally stretches and your hips often store extra fat deposits during pregnancy, it can be difficult to get rid of excess skin and tummy weight once your little one is here. Instead of only getting a tummy tuck to prepare for swimsuit season, why not include it in a full mommy makeover?
What Else Does a Mommy Makeover Entail?
One of the great things about a mommy makeover is that you and your surgeon can tailor the entire procedure to fit your specific needs. Because the breasts are also affected by pregnancy and nursing, a breast lift, augmentation or a combination of both can be part of your procedure. If additional sculpting in the waist, hips or thighs is also desired, your surgeon can also perform liposuction to enhance the effects of your tummy tuck.
It can be frustrating when you do everything “right” in terms of diet and exercise but are still not quite able to get your pre-baby body back. You’re certainly not alone in feeling this way. If you are interested in a mommy makeover, consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for more information.
