Many women experience permanent changes to the body after giving birth—changes that are not fully correctable with diet and exercise. If you’re dissatisfied with your appearance after childbirth, consider having a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover refers to a set of plastic surgery procedures that are fully customizable to your unique needs. Some procedures commonly included in a mommy makeover include a breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
Post-partum breast involution, or the loss of volume after childbirth, is common. You might choose to have breast augmentation to restore your breasts to their previous volume, or you might prefer to enlarge them further. After undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, you’ll still be fully capable of breastfeeding, should you choose to have another child. Talk to the plastic surgeon to learn whether saline or silicone breast implants are right for you.
Although a breast augmentation restores volume, many women also have loose skin around the bust after childbirth. If you have this issue, you might choose to combine a breast augmentation with a breast lift procedure, or opt for a breast lift by itself. During this procedure, the plastic surgeon removes some excess skin and tightens up the area to lift the breasts.
Despite diet and exercise, you might still have some stubborn fat deposits left from your pregnancy. If so, you could be a good candidate for liposuction. You might choose to have liposuction performed on your abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or chin. Talk to your plastic surgeon about a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Pregnancy stretches the abdominal muscles and skin, and sometimes, visiting the gym regularly isn’t enough to restore muscle tone. You might consider having a tummy tuck, which removes excess fat in the area and tightens your skin and muscles.
