What to Expect from a Mommy Makeover
Every mom should feel good about herself! Mommy makeovers in Danville can help mothers regain the confidence they may have lost due to changes in appearance during or after pregnancy. If you are interested in regaining your pre-pregnancy confidence, learn about popular mommy makeover procedures:
A Slimmer Stomach
Giving birth can leave your stomach looking flabby and saggy. That is why tummy tucks are popular procedures during mommy makeovers. During a tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon will remove some of your excess fat and skin around the stomach area. The tissue around the underlying muscle is tightened and the remaining skin is stretched and contoured to create a smooth and attractive tummy.
More Fit Appearance
The stomach is not the only part of the body that can experience weight gain during or after pregnancy. It is normal for women to gain weight during pregnancy, but many women have trouble taking this weight off even with diet and exercise. Liposuction can be included in a mommy makeover to remove excess fat from around the hips, thighs, arms, and other parts of the body.
Both pregnancy and breastfeeding after the baby is born can cause sagging in the breasts. Wearing a properly fitting bra can keep the chest supported, but many women are still uncomfortable with the way their breasts look or feel after sagging occurs. Plastic surgeons often provide breast lifts as part of mommy makeovers to give women the perkier breasts they desire.
Larger or Smaller Breasts
Pregnancy and motherhood can cause a variety of biological changes in women. Sometimes this causes the breasts to swell and become larger while other times it causes them to lose mass and become smaller. If your breast size changed drastically during or after pregnancy, a plastic surgeon can perform a breast augmentation or reduction to give you the chest you want.
