Motherhood may be the most joyous part of a woman’s life. However, it can also be exhausting and cause significant changes in a woman’s body. Fortunately, those changes don’t have to be permanent. At Murphy Plastic Surgery, we want you to have all the information you need so that you know what to expect from a mommy makeover.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover covers a wide range of procedures, depending on the new mother’s goals. This makes your initial consultation crucial, so our doctor can guide you to choose the best procedures to achieve your goals. Let’s discuss a few of these options.
Some women lose volume in their breasts after childbirth and diet and exercise will not bring this back. This is where the mommy makeover comes in. Opt for a breast lift and not only get back your lost volume, but your lost self-confidence as well.
Some women do not lose breast tissue after pregnancy, but they still feel self-conscious about their breasts. For these women, a breast lift may be the way to go.
Some new mothers find themselves with larger breasts after giving birth to a child, and they cannot seem to reduce their size after a healthy diet and exercise routine. This can be particularly frustrating to women at their goal weight. Not only is it not guaranteed their breasts will get smaller, but they don’t want or need to lose any more body fat in the first place.
Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is an extremely common procedure for new mothers. Natural childbirth can cause stress urinary incontinence, or SUI. This results in uncontrollable leakage during periods of sneezing, coughing, laughing or exercising. A tummy tuck can eliminate this problem. It also removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles under the skin, so you are left with a slim, toned look.
Liposuction is another one of the most common procedures for a new mother. While it is not a miracle cure for weight loss, it can remove stubborn fat.
