mother and baby exercise

A recent trend in plastic surgery is the Mommy Makeover, which is a series of procedures combined into one surgery to address the concerns of new mothers, including sagging breasts, extra skin, and remaining baby weight. Getting back to a pre-pregnancy body is often challenging for new moms, and the Mommy Makeover has made it much easier for moms to feel confident and beautiful. Here are some of the reasons you might choose to have this procedure after you have had children:

  1. Help losing the last few pounds of pregnancy weight: After you have a child, you will notice that weight comes off fairly quickly at first, but the last five to ten pounds can pose a challenge. These remaining pounds can stubbornly remain through your best efforts of diet and exercise because of hormonal changes that naturally occur during and after pregnancy. Incorporating liposuction and a tummy tuck into your Mommy Makeover will help you get back to a trim figure.
  2. Removal of excess skin: The abdomen is one of the areas that new mothers want to change the most after pregnancy, as it is often home to new sagging skin that adds volume to the waistline. This skin will remain loose because it has been stretched beyond the point of elasticity, so removal is the best option to recreate a more youthful, flat belly.
  3. Better-fitting clothes: A common problem after pregnancy is finding clothes that fit because weight has been gained in the midsection while the breasts have changed in size and position. After a Mommy Makeover, you can feel more confident in your clothes because the whole procedure is designed to restore more pleasing proportions in the body.
