Why Mommy Makeover’s are so popular…

The Popularity of the Mommy Makeover

The mommy makeover has increased in popularity in recent years, perhaps due in part to the media’s obsession with celebrities. Celebrities often are under pressure to get back in shape quickly after childbirth and they often appear to do so with ease. In fact, many women today not only feel a certain amount of pressure to bounce back more quickly, but they experience an overall need to look and feel good about themselves after giving birth.

What is a mommy makeover?

The mommy makeover is a term for a series of plastic surgical procedures that “makes over” a woman’s body, addressing her problem areas with plastic surgical procedures like liposuction and/or tummy tuck, and breast surgery like a breast lift with or without augmentation. The mommy makeover is designed for women who have had children and now want to have their bodies restored to their pre-pregnancy state.

Considering a Mommy Makeover?

Most women recovery uneventfully after childbirth, but they may have gained some excess weight and got some loose skin that may not easily addressed with diet and exercise. Some of this extra skin may also be a result of aging, breast feeding, genetic predispositions and other factors. Some women find that they are unable to achieve the results they through diet and exercise. During pregnancy, the stomach muscles often split and separate to accommodate the baby, and no amount of sit-ups and crunches can fix this. But plastic surgery can. The mommy makeover is designed specifically to tighten the muscles to give women what diet and exercise could not achieve.

What Does the Mommy Makeover Entail?

The mommy makeover typically consists of a breast augmentation and/or breast lift, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. A breast lift can be done to lift sagging breasts and remove excess breast skin to make them appear more youthful and perkier in appearance. Some women may opt to receive a breast augmentation to enlarge the breasts with saline or silicone implants and restore fullness. A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty, which essentially removes fat and excess skin from the abdominal region while making the abdominal wall tighter and more firm. Finally, liposuction is a procedure that removes excess unwanted fat from various parts of the body including the upper arms, torso, buttocks, and thighs. Liposuction is able to remove stubborn fat from targeted areas that have not responded to diet and exercise in order to create a more toned and shaped figure.
